Each year an estimated 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are ‘unaccounted’ for — puppies that don’t make the grade, dogs that sustain injuries, are pregnant or unable to find homes, most are less than five years old.
Many of these dogs are disposed of in the most ‘economical’ way – by bolt gun.

Done! thanks for the link! Hopefully someday soon they’ll ban greyhound racing.
One way to help is to adopt a retired greyhound. According to The Greyhound Project, most racing greyhounds retire between the ages of 3 to 5 and become available for adoption. Find a greyhound group near you and adopt…they make superawesome companions! http://www.adopt-a-greyhound.org/directory/list.cfm
