The final number of dogs that needed to be placed was less than 300; all of these dogs were placed in homes or adoption programs. The remainder of the dogs went on to other tracks. The original release of information was uninformed and inflamatory.
GPA stepped in and put forth a great deal of $ to get those that were not going to continue racing vetted and ready for adoption. From there the dogs were shipped out to individual groups or homes.
Royal Canin donated food to feed the dogs waiting for homes as well.  It was a great group effort.  If you would like to know more, you can go to www.greyhoundp and look at the news page.  Most of the info will be there.

Just a quick bit of info about the veggies.  You will want to grind or mash them so that they get the nutritional value of the veggies.  Dogs lack the enzyme to digest the all the vegetable therefore vegetables will pass in their stool pretty much whole.
Also for gas, we just give an acidophilus tablet once per day.

Thank you for moving this mods.  I guess I can't be trusted with a keyboard  :-X Somehow I completely missed this forum.   ???  Color me "I'm with stupid" :D

I have 4 greyhounds.  Each one is a retired racer.  They make great pets.  However there are many things you should consider and educate yourself about.
1. they always need to be on a leash and martingale collar when outside.  Unless in a SECURELY fenced area
2.  they still need to learn what a house is.  Just because they are an adult, doesn't mean they are familiar with household stuff.
3.  A gryhound can reach speeds of 40mph in 6 strides. So, do not tie them out, or let them loose.
4.  Lastly, greyhounds crave attention. without it, behaviour problems will stem
Please read the Dummies book, there is also a book by cynthia brannigan adopting the retired racing greyhound.  This is a very good read
You may visit www.greyhoundp for a lot more info on greyhound adoption.
Good Luck!!
