Greyhound Facts is the place to learn about all aspects of present day greyhound racing in the USA, from those with hands on experience. Our network of volunteers includes people who are actively involved in the breeding, raising, training, and rehoming of these wonderful hounds, as well as those who adopt them. Often, the general public doesn’t have a true understanding of what the lives of racing greyhounds are like, and how their track experiences contribute to them becoming great pets. Our goal is to provide honest information, sourced from those who truly care about this breed, and who look out for its well-being.
We’re always exploring and learning and want to share what we learn with you.
