I find it very strange for a person who was the 'founder of a greyhound adoption group', whilst breeding greyhounds, tries to undermine the incredible work of GREY2KUSA - with silly comments such as Grey2K leaving 'dogs without a place to go' - but then she has also pointed the finger at Shelters in the USA importing dogs, in need of homes, from '3rd world countries'. Anyway enough of how a breeder and pro-racer perpetuates the plight of greyhounds and her attempts to safe-guard her own interests. Without the valuable work from GREY2KUSA I fear many more greyhounds would suffer and would have suffered. The Lobbying/advocacy/and awareness work they achieve is immense. I have adopted greyhounds for 16 years after learning of their plight, and i know of people who have adopted greyhounds after learning of their plight from the awareness raised by GREY2K. The lobbying work of GREY2K has achieved much success in furthering the awareness of greyhound suffering and exploitation through many media outlets not just in the USA but throughout the world. Their lobbying to help bring about the first notion of adoption for the greyhounds in Macau, where death is and has been the ONLY retirement, as part of their campaign to bring an end to racing at the horrific Canidrome track(Macau) - is and has been a measure of capabilities that the conscience of any animal lover/rescuer/campaigner should recognise. GREY2KUSA do not directly re-home greyhounds - but they work hard to help bring about a time when greyhounds will no longer have to suffer for an industry sustained by their plight. A commendable service to greyhounds.
