Adopting just one Greyhound won't change the world, but the world will surely change
for that one Greyhound.
Greyhound Muses is an anti greyhound-racing website. We are opposed to greyhound racing in any form, either on the nationally recognised tracks or the so called "flapper tracks". We do not believe that greyhounds should be exploited for the gratification and gain, either financial or otherwise, of mankind.
Most of the poems and stories here are either completely true and accurate in their own right, or are based on actual experiences of the authors. Many of them don't make easy or pleasant reading, but this is what is happening behind the scenes in the racing world, and we need as many people as possible to know that if they support this industry by placing a bet, then they are in effect saying that what they read about on this website and others is acceptable to them.
Greyhound Muses believes that although rescue groups are doing a wonderful job in finding good caring homes for as many ex-racing dogs as they are able, they can only scratch the surface of this vast problem caused by the colossal numbers of greyhound puppies born each year (about 30,000 in the UK and Ireland) to produce a relatively few top racers. The means to stop this appalling suffering lies with you and I. Please tell everyone you know what is happening to these lovely dogs, and never visit a race track or place a bet on a greyhound race.
