Re: “Greyhounds put in harm's way so racino can prosper

We have three rescued greyhounds who are right now napping on a sofa and on beds - our people/dog beds. They are able play when they want to play. They play with toys. They eat quality food. They love to snuggle with us while we watch TV.

Dogs in racing never know the joy of any of this. The lucky ones, who make it out alive, finally get to live a quality life with families, where they can be dogs. They deserve to live a quality life from the time of their birth. They do not deserve to be exploited for gambling profits.

One of our three is a cancer survivor. We've taken many trips to a specialty veterinary hospital two hours away, to make sure she received the best possible care.

We lost another last year to multiple health problems. He too faced cancer and had one of his ears removed due to a tumor. He also endured some mental disorders from his racing days.

Two other ex-racing greyhound had heart attacks in our living room. One died on the way to the emergency hospital. The other died in my arms.
I've rescued many other dogs of various breeds over the course of my life, of 52 years. I've never had any other dogs die from heart attacks.
