 Adeline Halvorson – January 2011

Hi-Speed Hounds was recently approached by a well-known Canadian artist – Adeline Halvorson. Adeline generously presented Hi-Speed Hounds with a glorious print of a sleeping Greyhound and encouraged us to have it framed to use for a fund raising endeavor. The lithograph print, titled All the Comforts of Home, measures 27″ by 18″ and is a limited edition of 450 prints. HSH would like to thank Adeline for her generous contribution and is happy to promote this wonderful piece.

If you are interested, a copy of this print is available through Adeline – cost $160.00.

The dog in the painting is a rescued greyhound that belongs to a friend of hers in Calgary.

Adeline’s work was part of the Ducks Unlimited national print program in 2009, but she is best known for her horse images.

HSH will auction off the donated print at an upcoming fund raising event.

Bud, Spud & Steak fundraiser – November 2010

The Bud, Spud & Steak held at the Palomino Club on Nov. 6/10 was a huge success! It was well attended and 190 meal tickets were sold. A HUGE round of applause goes out to all the dedicated volunteers of Hi-Speed Hounds, and to the people who bought tickets and supported us in any way. We made enough that evening to pay off the remainder of our hefty vet bill at the Animal Hospital of Manitoba with a little left over to go towards the one with Best Friends Vet Clinic!

We had an enormous assortment of gift certificates and items donated towards our silent auction that made our event unique and memorable. Our own numerous Greyhound volunteers were incredibly generous with both their time and their donations. However, we would also like to thank the following people and businesses who also supported us as we strive to get everyone involved again for next year’s event!
