Ten Reasons Why a Former Racing Greyhound Needs You! 
  1. Most of these dogs are euthanized when they can no longer race.
  2. Some are not humanely euthanized; they are brutally killed or "taken off", or left somewhere to starve.
  3. Some of them are bred to race, but for some reason are not able to qualify, and never race.
  4. Some of these dogs are used for "vivisection"; medical research.
  5. They did not receive much TLC while racing; they cannot get enough when adopted!
  6. They are very loving and affectionate dogs; they have just never had anyone to love.
  7. Most of them have 8 - 10  years left to live when their racing career is over.
  8. People have been adopting greyhounds for years; but there are still not enough homes for all of them.
  9. They have "earned their keep", but have never had what you could call a "home".
  10. Greyhounds, like all living creatures, need love.
