OGGA will be receiving some of the Dairyland greyhounds within the next few days.  After they get their medical exams, bathed and settled into their foster homes we will be posting their pictures.  So keep an eye on this site to see our “new babies” up for adoption.

Dairyland Racetrack in Kenosha Wisconsin will no longer have live greyhound racing after December 31, 2009.  This means that hundreds of ex-racing greyhounds will be in need of fostering until rescue organizations such as OGGA can find them forever homes.

How can you help? If you’ve been thinking about adopting a retired racing greyhound, but just haven’t moved forward – now is the time to take action and bring one of these special dogs home. If you know anyone who might be able to adopt a dog, help us spread the word about what great pets greyhounds are.

If you’d like to help, have a donation, or have questions about adoption, please leave a comment after the this post or contact valerie@myogga.org.

Fire & OllieGreyhounds are referred to as the 45 mile-an- hour couch potato.  From this photo you see why.

People are concerned that greyhounds require so much daily exercise that they wouldn’t make a good pet for them.  As you can see  something comfortable to lay on is much more important to these skinny dogs.
