Penelope and Oliver are rescued racing greyhounds.
in 1919, Blue Star Amusement Company built an oval track and invented a mechanical, rabbit-like lure which could be used to race greyhounds. Illegal betting flourished and in 1931, Florida became the first state to legalize dog racing. What has transpired in the decades following is a sad history of abuse, injury, doping and inhumane treatment of these majestic dogs.
Increased public awareness has led to opposition to this cruel sport. Greyhound racing is on the wane and is illegal in 40 states and will be phased out in Florida by 2021. Gambling on dog racing has dropped 70% nationwide in the last decade. In the coming years, thousands of rescued racing greyhounds will need homes. Greyhounds are very clean, quiet, intelligent, and gentle dogs which make great pets. Might you have room in your heart for a rescued beauty like Penelope or Oliver?
