Houndsitting is a vital and valuable service that MGA volunteers provide to our
greyhound members. The cost is reasonable - $15.00 per night/per dog for MGA adopted dogs, and $20 per night/per dog for non-MGA adopted dogs. (Please note that first time, non-MGA adopted dogs will need to be evaluated by our team prior to scheduling. Please allow extra time for this step to take place). Both are reasonable prices compared to kenneling your hound(s), and all the money goes to support MGA programs, especially our medical fund.
Reservations must be made 5-6 weeks in advance. Exceptions are made for family emergencies only. Available spaces fill up fast, so be sure to request sitting as
soon as you know your travel plans.
Release forms are available for first time requests by contacting Sue Lakics at 630-290-2113 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sue will take all the information regarding your sit request. First time users of our service will be need to download a questionnaire and release from from our website.
Our longtime scheduler from the West & South Suburbs, Nanci Elzer-Blasgen is
retiring from hound sitting scheduling after many years of faithful service to MGA. She
is concentrating on her show horse activities and her growing horse boarding service.
We thank her for all her diligent work on behalf of MGA.
Sue Lakics will need some help with scheduling for the west & south areas of MGA owners. It only requires approx. 8-10 hours per month, a bit busier during holidays and summertime. If this is something you might be interested in, please feel free to
