April is National Adopt-A-Greyhound Month and what better time to welcome a beautiful, graceful, and gentle companion into your home? Meet volunteers and some great dogs from Greyhound Adventures and The Greyhound Project.
A total of ten Greyhound racing tracks have closed across the country since 2008 and 25 have closed since 2000. Two tracks recently closed in Massachusetts alone. An estimated 500 to 1,000 greyhounds have been displaced as a result of each closing.
There are thousands of these vibrant dogs being cared for by adoption groups as they wait to be adopted into permanent homes. The Greyhound Project is spreading their message of greyhound adoption awareness to ensure that 100% of these beautiful creatures will be able to find permanent loving homes.
