I would like to request that lost hound postings also go through our prior e mail list. I may easily miss postings here.

Carol -

We've taken 3 steps to ensure that lost hound info gets out to far more people than the old eList.

1. You can "Subscribe" to this forum (not just a particular topic, see Scott's explanation here http://forum.gpa-mn.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=268). That will ensure that EVERY post in this forum goes directly to your e-mail inbox.

2. You can join the Lost Hound Network, which has members from all three major Greyhound rescue groups in the metro area, not just GPA. It's on the GPA-MN home page under "Resources" or you can just click here and fill out the contact form - http://www.gpa-mn.org/lost-hound-contact-form.html

3. Everyone who received the old eList (plus many of the people who had unsubscribed over the years) was automatically subscribed to the new GPA E-blast, which will also be used in the event of a lost hound.

This way we can notify far more people in the event of a lost hound, and they can stay updated on the search at the level that is comfortable to them - anywhere from minute by minute updates to "I have some time free, where should I go?"
