About Dog Racing: Breeding

Thousands of puppies are bred each year for this cruel industry
Greyhound breeding has decreased sharply

As dog tracks close, the number of greyhounds bred for racing continues to shrink. A total of 10,422 individual dogs were registered to race in 2015 as compared to 26,797 in 2001, a decline of 61%. The number of greyhounds adopted into loving homes each year is unknown. In 2011, the National Greyhound Association acknowledged that there are "no cumulative annual records" available regarding the ultimate fate of racing greyhounds.
