New challenges for Greyhound Friends Inc.
Greyhound Friends Inc. has been in the business of rescuing retired greyhounds from tracks in Massachusetts and beyond for over 25 years. Our goal is to both educate the public on the issues of greyhound welfare and to promote change to better the lives of these magnificent animals.
We see a new challenge for our organization. As racing has ended in Massachusetts and tracks are closing around the country the numbers of greyhounds needing a place to retire is shifting regionally. There is also the emerging epidemic of cross breed hounds, many of which are being recklessly breed with greyhounds, adding tremendous strain on animal welfare organizations and humane societies around the country.
There is an immediate need to help place these hounds in loving homes but more importantly to start a campaign of information and education to help reduce the rampant breeding and ultimate saturation of dogs needing to be rescued.
Our organization has the skill and infrastructure of knowledge to help with this new challenge. Funds must be raised and media exposure pursued in order to meet this issue head on. Please visit our kennel and learn more about our goals to reduce suffering and change the way people think about breeding dogs indiscriminately around the country and abroad.
