    The amount of Greyhound Rescue organisations bursting at the seams is testament to the widespread neglect and abandonment of racing Greyhounds. Whilst I accept that not all trainers and owners have this mentality, there are still far too many who simply see the Greyhounds as disposable money makers.

    I do hope the dogs get the loving homes they deserve.

    Oh how I despair!
    When people show just how little they care
    While still not seeing behind the scenes
    They will send these poor old racers
    To maybe Canidrome! Screams.

    Because this race will carry on
    Thousands of greyhounds
    Will join the throng
    Now no longer needed here
    Their fate will only cost them dear

    Their lives could have been improved
    But all our tracks are now removed
    What fate are we sending them to
    What pain and suffering will we do?

    I love to watch them run and play
    Has Greyhound racing
    Really had its day!
    It’s sad to think
    This is the case
    For these loving friends
    It’s just sheer waste.

    But then as with all our canine friends
    Across the globe the message we send
    Will be one of failure once again
    To protect and help them on their way
    Poor Greyhounds have you seen your day?

    These dear old dogs just love to run
    Why didn’t we make it far more fun?
    Why didn’t we invest in their future
    Reduce the breeding save and neuter

    Keep kind tracks for them to play and run
    Let them grow old but still have fun
    Let them stretch their legs and sniff the air
    Keep them safe they are our canine atheletes
    Show you care.
