Some of you may know that I rescued four sweet and gentle retired greyhounds after they finished their racing careers. Fortunately, many states have now passed laws against greyhound racing, however with tracks closing, there is an even greater need for homes for these gentle souls. Yes, I can attest to the fact that they do not need a lot of exercise and prefer to spend most of their time on a comfy couch. Contrary to popular belief, they do not need a big area to run. They are just as happy in a condo, apartment or house. They were raised in small dog kennels, so life on the outside is a dream come true.
April is Adopt a Greyhound Month and this video is one that TV stations are showing in some areas. I hope you enjoy it, and think about adopting one of these retired hounds. You won't be sorry, and you may find out that one is just not enough. LOL If you'd like to donate to a greyhound organization, their are organizations throughout the world. The group I have done fostering for in the past is Greyhound Rescue and Rehabilitation located in NY and I have a link on my sidebar.
