Greyhound Puppymills

Did you know?

That almost 50% of greyhound puppies bred for racing are killed before they can even see a track? This is mainly due to the fact that those greyhounds are insufficient for racing, according to breeder and owner standards.

In addition, these dogs are kept in extreme weather conditions (non-temperate, because greyhounds have such short coats), with minimal shelter. This is true of most non-reputable puppy mills, also, but this is not a PSA for “Adopt, Don’t Shop.”

We can all help improve this system by not feeding into the greyhound racing industry any further. When you go to gamble, don’t find yourself at the dog races.
