Saving Greyhounds

Our Second Chance for Greyhounds Fund allows hardworking adoption groups to accept dogs into their programs no matter what their condition and no matter what their origin. We sponsor the transport of greyhounds in need from around the world to groups in the United States, making it possible for them to provide a higher level of care for each dog. We also absorb the costs for treating extreme medical cases and assist with other emergencies so that adoption groups can focus on the dogs and not worry about the high costs of rehabilitation.

Description of Problem

Dogs in the racing industry are the victims of standard practices that are cruel and inhumane. At racetracks across the globe, thousands of greyhounds endure lives of severe confinement and are fed a diet based on diseased meat. They are kept in solitary cages for long hours each day and when taken out to race, face the risk of serious injury. Common injuries include broken legs, paralysis, seizures and head trauma. Greyhound rescue groups move quickly to save as many of these dogs as possible.

Offering Solutions

Many rescued greyhounds require expensive medical procedures since they have never received proper veterinary care like dental cleaning, vaccinations or flea and tick treatment. Greyhounds are also not spayed or neutered while racing. Our Second Chance for Greyhounds Fund has been created to help save more greyhounds than ever before. Please lend your support to this life-saving effort today.

Every dollar donated helps us sponsor greyhounds as they leave closing dog tracks, funds our outreach and adoption efforts, and helps us educate the public about the cruelty of dog racing. Thank you for caring about the greyhounds!
