Each year an estimated 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are 'unaccounted' for -- puppies that don't make the grade, dogs that sustain injuries, are pregnant or unable to find homes, most are less than five years old.

this is awful there should be other alternatives to there wellbeing and care.

Yes Sharon there should be an alternative and there is. Stop greyhound racing altogether. Animals are not props for people to use 'til done. We banned it in MA after two tries. I collected signatures the second time around and wanted to scream at people sometimes for their indifference.
There are still 8 states that have racing and they must be stopped. The UK likes to talk about their animal rights but greyhound racing is cruel even without this horrid bolt gun. If they are going to continue this insane racing at the very least they can let them be adopted . In the end the only answer is to end greyhound racing forever..
I'd like to get hold of one of those bolt guns and use it on those who are killing these lovely dogs. I can not truly express my loathing for them in words as it is also a physical feeling that I have for them and others who abuse animals with so little feeling.

Noted and gladly signed with this comment ~ How very cruel to treat the gentle Greyhounds in this way,they deserve better treatment as they are used and abused in many countries for racing!!!!!! I live in the UK and our country can be just as cruel in the way it treats wildlife and animals as any other even though we are supposed to be a nation of animal lovers!!!! I support Greyhound charities as they do try to find loving homes for these beautiful dogs.So sad how mans best friend is treated around the world! Thank you Kelly.Liz Xx
