Wisconsin Greyhounds Find New Homes


An animal rescue group says homes have been found for more than three-quarters of the greyhounds from the closed Geneva Lakes dog racing track in Delavan, Wisconsin.

The dogs have been taken in by Patty Caron of Faribault, Minnesota, and others who provide foster care for homeless animals. Caron is a member of SAFE Sanctuary, an animal rescue group that holds monthly pet adoption days.

Caron says there were 1,000 greyhounds at the track that needed rescue or else would be put down. She says there are only about 230 left and homes are being sought for those dogs.

In their foster homes, Caron says the greyhounds will be socialized with humans and other pets. The dogs will be taken to a veterinarian to be de-wormed, have dental work done and be neutered before being put up for adoption.
