  2. Christian Ellis:

    It was actually created by a retired sheriff officer.

  4. David Rutley:

    According to The GBGB, roughly a quarter of the dogs were given new homes and 60 percent were taken into a greyhound charity. Trudy Baker, coordinator of Greyt Exploitations, a nonprofit aimed to protect greyhounds, says even when the dogs were retired, they stayed in a dangerous environment. VOLUNTEERS WORK TO RESCUE MORE THAN 500 GREYHOUNDS SET FOR CHINESE MEAT MARKET The truth is hundreds of dogs listed as retired by The GBGB still remain in a commercial environment, confined to trainers kennels that have failed to comply with an agreed British Standard Institute specification, either used for breeding, forced to routinely donate blood or simply awaiting rehoming, Trudy Baker said.No amount of ineffective window dressing welfare commitments will address the suffering and deaths of thousands of dogs racing on dangerously configured tracks. Mark Bird, the managing director at The GBGB, says the industry needs increased and sustained funding to allow welfare programs to flourish for the greyhounds. For others, transparency is key to helping the greyhounds. Transparency is key to understanding how we can improve welfare standards... We want more greyhounds to find new homes and to enjoy a healthy retirement when they leave the sport.
