Due to a lagging economy, competition from casinos and in some states, legislation banning racing, Greyhound racing tracks are closing across the country, leaving thousands of racing greyhounds displaced.
You can see a list of adoptable dogs, or throw a few dollars to dogs that are currently in rehab for racing injuries. The pic is of Plaza, who busted his leg on the track. He'll heal but will need a home for his retirement.
These really are great dogs. I've had dogs since I was born, and this breed is truly something special. And they need help from the humans that raced them for fun and profit.
