Greyhound Pet Adoptions/Three Rivers Greyhounds (GPA/TRG) of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania is a non-profit organization dedicated to retired racing Greyhound adoption. There are thousands of Greyhounds in the United States who are anxiously waiting for homes because they do not qualify for racing or they are retired from racing.
The mission of our all-volunteer organization is to educate the public about the suitability of Greyhounds as house pets and to find loving forever homes for Greyhounds and only Greyhounds.
IN LOVING MEMORY
We are saddened to share the news of the passing of Bev Stulen on Sunday, February 21, 2021 after a three-year fight with cancer. TRG lost a precious friend, volunteer and brave woman. She truly gave of herself to help greyhounds.
Many of you, including TRG adopters, knew Bev from her role as the adoption screener. When she passed an application on for greyhound placement, we knew that with Bev’s seal of approval and her recommendations we would be able to place another greyhound in their forever home with success. Of the 400+ greyhounds adopted through TRG, Bev was closely involved in the majority of placements. Her dedication to finding qualified adopters was amazing.
Bev was a foster to 46 greyhounds, including those for TRG and previously for Going Home Greyhounds. Greyhounds that needed extra attention or behavioral assistance often were known to spend time at Bev’s “boot camp” with the help of her wannabe greyhound(beagle) Sydney. She also went on many home visits for potential adopters. TRG is eternally grateful for her input and results with these greyhounds. Bev was also a regular volunteer when TRG would meet haulers to pick up new hounds coming into our adoption program.
Bev’s experience with greyhounds and her fundraising efforts for TRG were invaluable. She was a member of the TRG board, and her calm and thorough efforts ensured that our yearly reunion, tailgating event, and other activities were successful. She helped coordinate a very successful online auction for the 4 Legs 4Hounds program. She donated and organized our basket raffles for several years. If there was a job that needed done, Bev would be one of the first to volunteer.
Words are not enough to convey all of Bev’s efforts and the role she played as a volunteer for TRG. We send our prayers to her family, friends and all those whose lives she touched, both human and animal.
