Like the idea of a greener solution to sending paper cards, something even more personal than a social media message and helping your favourite charity Erin Hounds?

Erin Hounds are now a listed charity on and we have a wonderful selection of e-cards for you to send for any occasion. Every card you send means we receive a donation for the value of that card (and it’s a very healthy percentage that comes to us).

The e-cards selected for Erin have been created using images of our own Erin Hounds’ hounds and our wonderful supporters’ photographs. There are even cards for a dog’s special occasions: Happy Gotcha Day and Welcome to your new home.

It is simplicity itself to send a card: click on the link above, select a card, compose your personal message, donate any amount and pay by Paypal or credit/debit card and send.

Thanks againChristmasThank you E-card 2HomeThanks
