The greyhound track in Plainfield, CT voted on April 26th that they would discontinue greyhound racing. Unfortunately - and heartbreakingly - they've also decided that rescuers have only two weeks to get the dogs out, and any dogs remaining at the track on May 14th will be euthanized. This is a monumental task because there are at least 500 dogs currently at the track. These are all young, healthy dogs, 2-4 years of age, who would make great family pets.

I really wish I could do something to help, but I'll be at school until then and even if I wasn't, I don't have my own place where I can make the decision to take in some dogs. If you or anyone you know can help, please do! But if you can't, spread the word around!
