Review for Friends Of Retired Greyhounds, Thornton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I would like to respond to Kelly K's review about Friends of Retired Greyhounds. We appreciate the kind words that she shares about our organization. Our main mission is to find forever loving homes for those retired racing greyhounds that come into our organization. As she mentions, bringing a greyhound into your family is a life changing experienced.

I must stress that Friends of Retired Greyhounds DOES NOT share her thoughts that greyhound racing is barbaric or should be outlawed. Greyhound kennels are under constant review by state and federal agencies to make sure that they are in compliance with all laws. To state that they are mistreated or forced to race is a myth. Greyhound kennel handlers are with the racer from birth and form a close relationship with these animals. Anyone who has adopted a greyhound knows how much they love to run and love human companionship - something I doubt they would feel if mistreated by humans -plus you CANNOT force a dog to race.

FORG is race neutral.
