Recently, Florida Amendment 13 passed banning greyhound racing. Whether you are for or against racing, the greyhounds need us now more than ever. Many kennels will be closing meaning the dogs will need to retire now. If you have ever considered adopting a retired racer, now is the time! If you already have a greyhound at home please consider adding another to your family. There are an estimated 15,000 hounds (of all ages) in Florida right now, not all of them will need homes but we certainly must think of the large number that will over the next few months and year as the kennels can't afford to house that many dogs with no income.

*Please be respectful of people's opinions on the matter and keep the greyhounds' best interest in mind.
