Jacqueline Howard

Founder

With her husband, Albert, Jacqueline adopted her first greyhound in 2000. Since then, she has volunteered in greyhound rescue and served on a Board of Trustees for a greyhound rescue group. Jacqueline is also the host and producer of the "About Greyhounds" podcast and has fostered over 100 greyhounds and countless cats and kittens with her family. Jacqueline is a writer and by day works for a Fortune 50 company; her company recognized her as the Volunteer of the Year in 2017 and 2018 (this led to an electronic billboard featuring her and her greyhound Baron, on the Times Square billboard in her original home town, New York City, both years) and a top five volunteer in 2019, 2020, and 2021. She's also authored two humorous fiction books, "Son of a Dog" and "Cruise to Nowhere," both featuring rescued greyhounds. In 2019, Jacqueline and Albert adopted Felix, a Candy's Hound Rescue International meat trade survivor greyhound from China.

Special Appeal for Ukraine

Shelter Ugolyok

Typically, The Foundation's focus is on transports for meat trade survivor dogs and rescued hunting dogs in Spain. Yet, there are times when a situation is so horrific that it demands our attention.


To date, we awarded $9,671 in emergency grants to Shelter Ugolyok in Lviv, Ukraine. It was funded with money raised specifically to help ease the financial challenges the shelter is facing in this time of war. We carefully researched this extraordinary rescue before choosing it as a grantee. The staff and volunteers are committed to the continued protection of the dogs, cats, horses, cows, goats, pigs, and other animals in their charge. 

100% of donations made through this link will fund additional grants for Shelter Ugolyok. Gifts made through The Flying Dog Foundation are tax deductible for US taxpayers.
