PERSONAL WORK: GREYHOUND RESCUE

Since 1993, New Jersey Greyhound Adoption Program (NJGAP) has placed 2,000 rescued racing greyhounds into adoptive families.

Volunteers donate their time to pick-up the dogs from rescue trailers, bath and groom, and provide a foster home until the dogs are placed into a permanent home.

From the perspective of this agency, there is an endless supply of dogs.
