Why would you listen to animal rights extremists who wish to eradicate animals, and our interactions with them, about what's good for animals? That's like going to a foot doctor when what you really need is brain surgery. Think about that.

According to the American Greyhound Council, in 2009, the greyhound industry had a 90% adoption rate. We know that the rate of adoption is closer to 95% and edging towards total placement of adoptable greyhounds.

DID YOU KNOW?
Modern Day Greyhound Racing has not only progressed over the years, but has undergone a metamorphosis to the point where those at the very core of greyhound welfare are now active and vocal proponents of the sport.

Many individuals who are years and even decades long greyhound adoption volunteers and adopters not only support Greyhound Racing, they have actually become active racing greyhound owners. Included in this are people from all walks of life - ranging from educators, doctors, lawyers, accountants, law enforcement, and the clergy, to name a few....some of whom even started their journeys very much against racing.

Don't fall for outdated propaganda and incomplete, deceptive "statistics." Get out of the past. Get to the truth of today.

Listen to true lovers of the breed. Not political lobbyists.

If you don't appreciate how nature created them-
If you don't care about their need to fill that calling-

Then you don't care about breed.

Support purebred, purpose driven dogs. They know what they want. Do you?

Do you really know the difference between Animal welfare and Animal rights?

ANIMAL WELFARE
-Animal Welfare, as defined by the American Veterinary Medical Association, is a human responsibility that encompasses all aspects of animal well-being, including proper housing, management, disease prevention and treatment, responsible care, humane handling, and, when necessary, humane euthansia.
-Animal welfare proponents seek to improve the treatment and well-being of animals.
-Animal welfare proponents believe that humans can interact with animals in entertainment, industry, sport and recreation, and industry, but that the interaction should include provisions for the proper care and management for all animals involved.
-Animal welfare proponents support self-regulation of animal sports, including rodeo, polo, three-day eventing, FFA competitions, horse racing, field trials and endurance riding.
-Animal welfare groups utilize scientific evidence to base animal care and handling guidelines.

ANIMAL RIGHTS
Animal Rights is a philosophical view that animals have rights similar or the same as humans. True animal rights proponents believe that humans do not have the right to use animals at all. Animal rights proponents wish to ban all use of animals by humans.
-Animal rights proponents support laws and regulations that would prohibit rodeos, horse racing, circuses, hunting, life-saving medical research using animals, raising of livestock for food, petting zoos, marine parks , breeding of purebred pets and any use of animals for industry, entertainment, sport or recreation.
-Animal rights proponents believe that violence, misinformation and publicity stunts are valid uses of funding donated to their tax-exempt organizations for the purpose of helping animals.
-Arson, vandalism and assault are common tactics used by underground animal rights groups to further the animal rights cause. Groups such as the Animal Liberation Front, which have been classified as terrorist by the FBI, routinely use criminal activities to further their cause.
