Because Florida is home to a majority of the remaining dog tracks in the United States, the state represents a unique challenge for the greyhound adoption community. The sad reality is that it is difficult to find homes for all of the dogs that leave Florida tracks. To address this problem several groundbreaking efforts -- including the Sunburst Project -- have formed in recent years with the goal of transporting greyhounds to adoption groups in other states. These are fantastic efforts and should be supported.
There is also more that can be done, however, to encourage greyhound adoptions within Florida. That is why we created FLgreyhounds.org and are now promoting this new online resource with trolley advertisements in Naples. It is our hope to expand this effort and eventually encourage Floridians to adopt through a series of billboards throughout the state.

If you know people who live in Florida, please send them a link to FLgreyhounds.org and tell them how wonderful greyhounds are.
Together, we can make a difference for all of the dogs racing in the Sunshine State.
We have 2 rescued greys. They are the dearest, most gentle, best "children" in the world.ReplyDelete
