There are plenty of reasons NOT to adopt a greyhound. When you do so you are perpetuating a cruel industry by helping put a pretty face on it. They don't tell you about those in the litter they off when born because they don't have what it takes to race. They don't tell you about those that get put down because they are not adoptable. They don't tell you about the ones that end up in the desert shot to death en-mass. They don't tell you about the ones left to die in the dessert in a hot trailer. They don't tell you that when you adopt a greyhound instead of one from the animal shelter a dog there dies.
STAND UP AND HELP OUTLAW this senseless cruelty to animals OUTLAW GREYHOUND RACING. Work for that.

Agree with Pinky on the ethics of dog racing, the adoption agencies have to adopt a code of silence in order to save lives- its a sad and deadly catch 22. BUT, having a hound in your life is pretty darn awesome, and when people see you with one, its an opportunity to discuss with friends and strangers your concerns, and bring them too to the cause.
So yes, and no.

I agree with pinky, and thank him for his insightful introduction for discussion of this subject.
Greyhound racing should be banned just like c*ck fighting and dog fighting. Horse racing also needs to be considered.
*the moderator would not allow me to use the actual word.

...meaning that a ban on c0ck fighting is rigidly enforced here in TOPIX.
