As you probably are aware Florida greyhound racing is over at the end of 2020 but two Florida tracks are closing at the end of March. Eighty (80) hounds are being transported to this part of the country courtesy of the Southwest Greyhound Xchange.
We have committed to taking 8 hounds around the beginning of March but we can’t do it without your help. Is it possible? Yes! Here’s your chance to help a Florida racer find his or her loving home in our backyard. We need committed foster volunteers and we need you, you and you and/or your neighbors or friends who love the greyhound breed. Our foster circle must expand in order to accommodate SA Greys commitment to helping Florida racers find loving homes.
10 reasons to foster a greyhound:

- Gives an individual or family an opportunity to learn how to live with a hound, you become better adopters;
