Hundreds of greyhound adoption groups have sprung up across the world to find homes for dogs that have been saved from the racing industry. As part of our continuing series, we would like to spotlight the wonderful work of Australia's Gumtree Greys. .
In the wake of the live baiting scandal and the upheaval of the dog racing industry in Australia, more and more dogs are being surrendered to adoption groups. Now more than ever, Gumtree Greys needs our help. The all-volunteer group rescues greyhounds from a variety of sources, including tracks, but also pulls them to safety from regional pounds and accepts many injured dogs from trainers. They are true life savers!
In addition to rescue and rehoming work, Gumtree Greys also focuses on education and awareness of the sad plight of these beautiful, gentle dogs and aims to change the public misperception of greyhounds in the community.
"All our dogs wear the Gumtree Greys' Magic Travelling Pants, which means they are very transportable and Gumtree Greys can relocate the dogs to their new home anywhere in Australia.
Sadly, the majority of greyhounds in Australia are still destroyed once they finish racing. Additionally, many more are killed at a young age because they don't 'make the grade' in competitive racing, or are born with conditions that will prevent them from racing at all. Large numbers of greyhound puppies are destroyed before they even reach a year old. This is something we are working to change!"
