Q: Who are the volunteer faces behind GREYlong?
A: We are pet owners and lovers, just like hundreds of thousands of people across the United States. Our volunteers are ordinary folks working together to realize an extraordinary goal. GREYlong was established in 2006 to make a difference in the lives of our companion pets today and tomorrow. Our volunteers offer many forms of help, such as donating cash or time, offering product donations for sale on EBay or clipping Best Choice labels to name a few activities. Because GREYlong is an entirely volunteer-based organization, our supporters are extremely important to the success of our mission.
