Adopt a Greyhound Month

Greyhounds are very gentle dogs, but unfortunately the racing industry breeds far too many every year. They are exploited and mistreated by the racing industry which only has use for them while they run profitably. If the greyhound is not profitable it is most likely killed. It is a sad fact that only a fraction of the approximately 20,000 greyhounds bred each year is alive to be re-homed.

Greyhounds need little exercise and generally spend about 18 hours a day sleeping, making them very suitable for people little in apartments.
