my friend the greyhound rescuer
Hi Everyone on Vegweb,
Will and I thank you for your expressions of sympathy and well wishes for our friends. I apologize for my little rant last night; yesterday really sucked.
Thank you Davedrum for offering to help keep her dream alive. I wanted to post this information for anyone who felt compelled to donate or send a card. There is a fund that has been set up in Millicent's honor, but initially it was intended for her medical bills and to help place her greyhounds (4) and whippits (2). All of which have found a home (together with a couple that deserves sainthood for absorbing 6 dogs into their brood :) )
I have been playing phone tag with the administrator of the fund all day, but (via voicemail) she said that donations could be made to the fund and she would write a check to the group. Here is the group that Millicent started:
I am certain that they will continue the runs, however I don't know who will take them over. I'd imagine I'll find out at the memorial Thursday.
(Greyhounds Unlimited is in Texas where she was from originally).
Cards are being directed to her mother; if you wish to send one, please contact me at . All I have is her home address and I don't feel comfortable posting it without permission.
I will post an update after the memorial. Thanks again guys.
I spoke today with Salsa's companion and he said that Salsa passed away with dignity and grace, in his companion's arms. For what it's worth...that's how I wanna go. :'(

Thanks for posting all the links and info. I'll be sending a donation in Milliscent's name once I get back from my visit here at my Mom's....
I just wanted to let you know that the AOL link you posted is now down. Email me and let me know WHERE to send the donation.
Yes it is working now. Perhaps someone was "tinkering" with it yesterday. OR AOL was just being er,umm, AOL! :P
I just want to clarify, because I'm a little confused :P
If I send an e-mail to the contact person (firewoman) on the greyhound run page, she will tell me where to send a donation to the fund? Sorry, I'm kind of slow sometimes!
I'm really glad to hear the dogs were all placed together. What a great family they are to take them all in!
