From The Track To The Couch – Greyhound Rescue

In 2015, many Australians were shocked by a Four Corners report that illustrated the cruel treatment of greyhounds by the racing industry, with an estimated 17,000 greyhounds killed a year and a recent finding of 9 dogs in a mass grave in Western Sydney.

Even before this in 2009, the not-for profit organisation Greyhound Rescue has been working with former racing dogs, finding homes for 900 dogs that otherwise would have likely been euthanased.
