anonymous - the money goes to the Greyhound Rescue Association to help other greyhounds get adopted into good homes.
i moved to montana from rochester about a year ago and a few weeks ago I accidentally stumbled on your blog. I LOVE IT! Thank you so much for keeping me up to date on Rochester happenings and giving me the chance to see what is going on in the Roc. If only it didnt make me miss my family and friends so much... :(
Elly says thanks!!!
Thanks for posting this. Adoption groups receive a number of dogs from racetracks several times a year. These greyhounds are "retired" (they are not fast enough to be good racers, have been good but was injured, or just old already) so kennels now work with adoption groups in finding homes for these retired athletes. Rumor was before the proliferation of adoption groups, some racetracks just kill dogs that they deem "useless" already. I think before, the mentality was that greyhounds are LIVESTOCK. So tehy were not protected by law from cruelty & inhumane treatment.. They can be disposed of if not useful to the owner...tough life. Now, a retired racer has a better chance of finding a home. Husband & I fell in love with our neighbor's greyhound so now, we have 2. Those conrtibutions/donations will help the group in paying for the food, health/vet expenses of the dogs while they are still in foster care.
The greyhounds are always a favorite of ours,too.Thet deserve every penny and every bit of kind and loving attention they get. Also, nice to meet you yesterday.julie
My family had adopted two greyhounds (they’ve since past) and they were the GREATEST DOGS EVER. Lake (short for Lake Bluff) was a caramel cutie and was my favorite. She was so calm and such a loving dog. She and Pheobe used to sleep on their backs with their legs straight up…I guess they all do it at times. They are such wonderful dogs, I highly recommend saving one or two!
Do I at least get a lapdance? Just kidding! ;o) Looks like another worthy cause. Thanks, Jenny, for blogging about it.
Annegret - bah hah! That's what I was thinking too!
