Friday Fact – Greyhound Racing

greyhound adoption

Dog racing is cruel and inhumane.  At commercial racetracks, thousands of dogs endure lives of terrible confinement  and suffer serious injuries.

In the racing industry, dogs are confined in small cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around for long  hours each day. Hundreds of dogs are kept in warehouse style kennels at each  track.

Thousands of dogs are killed when they are injured or are no longer fast enough to be profitable. According to a 2009  estimate from the pro-racing National Greyhound Association, as many as 3,000  greyhounds are killed annually.

  1. What people won’t do just for money! I hate horse races as well. Great share Linda. Thanks. 😀

  2. I agree, Sonel. Cars are for racing – not dogs or horses. I do not like the way animals are treated in the circus or rodeo either. I hate any sport or entertainment industry that values money more than the welfare of the animal.
