Hundreds of greyhound adoption groups have been formed across the world in order to find homes for dogs that have been discarded by the racing industry. As part of our continuing series, we would like to spotlight the wonderful work of Lévriers en Détresse.
Just as the cruelty of greyhound racing knows no borders, advocacy has no limits! Today, I would like to
introduce you to a wonderful group in France working to create a permanent sanctuary for greyhounds.
Thankfully, there is no commercial dog racing in L'Hexagone, but the volunteers of Lévriers en Détresse (Dogs in Need) work to rescue greyhounds discarded by tracks in other countries.
Madame Catherine Madry, the founder of Dogs in Distress, has been fighting for
greyhounds for over eleven years and has successfully helped place many greyhounds, principally from
the UK and Spain. But at this time, she is asking for help to establish a permanent adoption center in her
own country, something which would demonstrably increase her ability to help greyhounds:
We really want to create a refuge, a real greyhound adoption center so that we will be able to
rehome more greyhounds from the UK and Spain, and fight against the racing industry more efficiently.
To be brought to light, our project needs your help. Worldwide publicity for our project is the key.
As greyhounds lovers we request your help. Please make a donation so
our dream of a greyhound sanctuary will come true!
Together, we can expand the safety net for greyhounds worldwide by supporting Lévriers en

Please help my fellow greyhounds and the good people across the globe who are working so hard to
bring them to safety.
