Please pass along!

On November 6th, Geneva Lakes Greyhound Race Track in Lake Geneva,
Wisconsin, will close their doors for good and 1,000 of their racing dogs
will need homes.

Greyhounds Only, a not-for-profit rescue group (501-C-3) usually handles
these adoptions, however, with their current resources and volunteers, they
can only accommodate 20-25 of these ex-racing beauties.

Please get word out to all your friends and media affiliates across the
country that Greyhounds Only is in desperate need of other Greyhound Rescue
groups to pitch in and help. Transport can be arranged; it's the housing,
care, feeding and placement of these marvelous, gentle creatures that
needs immediate attention and volunteers.

We cannot stand idly by and let these ex-racing dogs be cast aside because
their owners no longer value them. They lived their whole lives being
someone else's commodity; now it's their turn to live the rest of their
lives in comfort being loved and pampered.

Okay, see, now I want one. I've wanted a Greyhound for years and with already owning sight hounds it would be so easy...

Except we don't have the space for a third big dog nor real running room. I've trained the girls on their boundaries so they'll run laps in the front yard but I'd be nervous about a third.

Agreed. But I am passing the word around to local rescue orgs. and I think I am going to email a local radio celebrity who often does this kind of thing to see if she will announce it on her radio program.

I can't take one, even though I'd love to. BUT I did e-mail this info to my sister in Pa. Her husband trains racehorses, she said she would be willing to foster and she knows a few people at the track that may be willing to adopt. She also used to work with a rescue group outside of Richmond, so she'll be contacting them. Also my sister, the one whose house you guys picked me up at. She's a vet tech now so she has some connections. (Also she's likely to take one in herself *g* just don't let her hear me say that.)

So hopefully a few more will be safe. Will let you know.
