Supporting GAGAH

Give a Greyhound a Home

sharing our horizon by xenia tran, poetry

We are delighted we were able to make a donation of Β£105 to Give a Greyhound a Home (GAGAH) earlier this week with funds raised from the sale of Sharing Our Horizon during the 2021-2022 tax year.

Since we are currently caring for Misty as our Forever Foster on behalf of GAGAH and Misty’s family, it seemed a natural choice.

GAGAH was established in 1999 to raise awareness about ex-racing greyhounds and ex-working lurchers and to rehome as many of these wonderful hounds as possible throughout Scotland.

They are a non-profit organisation, run by a dedicated team of volunteers who give their time and effort for free.

If you are interested in supporting GAGAH directly through donations, fostering, adopting or buying goodies for your hound from their Happy Hound Store, please visit their website where you can find out how to make a positive difference.

A very big thank you to all of you who have bought a copy of Sharing Our Horizon, left a review and helped spread the word.

Warm-hearted thanks also to the Authors’ Licencing and Collecting Society (ALCS) and The Society of Authors (SoA) for launching Author Share, their Re-use Royalty Initiative for Writers where authors receive a royalty share when their books are sold second-hand through World of Books and Bookbarn International.

Every penny helps and more royalties received means more money to help hounds in need.

Sharing Our Horizon is the first book we published featuring poems and photographs from our blog, inspired by the walks with our beloved whippets Eivor and Pearl in the Scottish Highlands.

  1. Such a noble and kind-hearted cause. Many thanks, Xenia, for being an advocate for such wonderful creatures. The love you so obviously have for these beautiful dogs is so apparent in your writing and photography. They (and we) are blessed to have you around. πŸ™‚
