Please help retired greyhounds

IT IS A SAD fact of life that many greyhounds applauded on the track meet an untimely end when their racing days are over.
The RSPCA believes that at the end of their racing careers, all greyhounds should have the opportunity of retirement to a home.
The Society thinks this should be financed and managed by the greyhound racing industry rather than depending on charity.
Nearly 5,000 greyhounds in England are unaccounted for each year when their racing days are over. The average life span of a healthy greyhound is around 14 years.
The RSPCA, along with other welfare groups is asking the public to help in supporting calls for independent regulation.
The RSPCA is calling for the government in England to apply external regulation to the greyhound industry as a matter of urgency. There is a rising tide of public unease about this issue and increasing pressure on the industry to improve its ways and not regard dogs as disposable commodities.
