Jefferson County Kennel Club-Monticello Florida
ADOPTION PROGRAM ENDS
According to internet postings by Pam Davis-GPA Tallahassee, JCKC told GPA Tallahassee “there is no longer an adoption kennel nor anyone coordinating adoptions at JCKC. Each kennel is now responsible for disposing of their graded-off dogs.”
WHAT will happen to these dogs with no adoption program? DO we really believe the kennels will spend the time needed to place their dogs with rescue groups? WILL any of them be saved?
This Action By JCKC is Unconscionable !!
CAGR Note: We believe JCKC kennels are among the worst for care of the dogs. There have been written posts from those involved depicting the condidtion of many dogs turned over to the former adoption kennel
This HBO Real Sports Segment was filmed in 2003. While the numbers stated have declined, far too many greyhounds face the same fate today.
As evidenced by our name, Citizens Against Greyhound Racing (CAGR) advocates for the end of greyhound racing and the return of the greyhound to its rightful place as a true companion animal. CAGR utilizes three primary tools in this effort:
Public education is key to ending this cruel form of entertainment. CAGR conducts educational programs in a variety of venues to keep the public informed about adoption and the realities of greyhound racing.
CAGR is responsible for the successful passage of Pennsylvania legislation proactively banning live greyhound racing in 2004 AND 2011 passage of legislation proactively banning the simulcasting of greyhound racing in Pennsylvania.
CAGR collaborates with a number of rescue groups to place adoption in the forefront at all outreach events and educational program presentations. Many of CAGR’s Board Members actively volunteer with rescue/adoption organizations maintaining a hands on commitment to helping the greyhounds. In addition, a “Restricted” fund is maintained to assist greyhounds displaced due to racetrack closings. Fund monies are disbursed to various adoption groups to help with extraordinary expenses.
More is needed
While CAGR and other greyhound and animal welfare groups consistently work to end greyhound racing, it is important for people who share our beliefs to join us and advocate on an individual level. Never underestimate the power of sharing your knowledge about the business of greyhound racing with family, friends and others whose path you may cross. It’s easier than you may think if you arm yourself with a few key facts to share.
