On Nov. 6, Geneva Lakes Greyhound Race Track in Lake Geneva, Wis., 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; its 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 elses commodity; now its their turn to live the rest of their lives in comfort being loved and pampered.
