Greyhound racing is an exceedingly cruel and abusive industry, in which the dogs are often injured while racing, and are killed when they are no longer profitable and can't be adopted. Every year thousands of dogs are killed because they can no longer

Noted, signed and forwarded. Also added my two cents:
We're celebrating the end of greyhound racing here in Arizona and I hear they are ending it in Texas. We know people who have adopted greyhounds that were abandoned or about to be killed because they were too old or too slow although they are great dogs. Sadly, many of these very large and energetic dogs are not adopted. It's time to stop breeding animals for entertainment and then abandoning or killing them. Dogs must be bred as companions for life, as we already have too many in shelters, rescues and pounds awaiting adoption. It's time for us to stop killing our fellow mammals because we refuse to meet our obligation to care for them or because they have become inconvenient. It says something about us as a people and a society, something about our souls, that we kill when it is convenient. Please stop the racing and it will end the breeding of race dogs.
