For those of you who abhor cruelty please have a look at this video and if you are living close by perhaps you could attend or rally support. :?:
Please feel free to cross post to help raise awareness.

Yes Michelle......this is what I am referring to.
There is also a petition on behalf of greyhounds online.....it's to try and put a stop to the use of the captive bolt to kill dogs. :shock:
Will find the link and post.
You can safely watch this video ....it's upsetting but not too graphic.
Such a sad sad situation for this gentle breed of dog who sadly outlive their usefulness.....very quickly. :( :(

Here's another link reflecting on numbers of Greyhounds bred each year for the "Industry" .....You have to ask the question...where are all the dogs who didn't meet the standard for racing :?: :?:
The whole thing is shameful and it's time to put a stop to the killing. :evil:

:( Yes Linny I've always thought how greyhounds get a bad deal in life, as you say you never ever see a greyhound puppy out for a walk with it's new owners..... just the washed up rescue one's, no longer wanted in life and I guess they are the lucky ones :? We have heard some shocking tales from my Sister-in-law who used to live in Southern Ireland. It was a regular thing to see dead dogs (mostly lurcher/greyhound types) dead in ditches on the country roads where she lived....it really shocked her :(

:) Every greyhound I have ever had the pleasure to meet has been the most gentle and loving of dogs towards me even though they have been through hell and back in a former life .....
