Abstract

Prison Greyhounds fosters retired racing greyhounds and teaches them basic house manners prior to their adoption into permanent loving homes.  Their inmate-handlers gain job skills, teamwork experience and an opportunity to explore a better way of living before being released into our community. In addition we foster special greyhounds in volunteer homes that have retired because of racing injuries. These dogs often wait the longest in the kennels before an adoption group says “We want that dog!” We take the dogs that some consider “damaged goods” and find them loving, responsible homes by telling their story.
