Ivy's Story...
Ivy is a 3 year old brindle Female. She is TBD if she Cat Tolerant.

Shyla came to GU as part of the FWACC Rescue of 28 hounds

Of the eight hounds in GU's care: 8 tested positive for Ehrlichiosis, 5 for Anaplasmosis, 1 tested positive for Heartworms and all where loaded with intestinal parasites.

These special dogs will be listed as special needs to due to the extreame condition in which they were found and the ongoing medical treatment they require.

On Thursday July 8th, 2010, a rescue of what was thought to be 14 greyhounds took place in south Ft. Worth. When Ft. Worth Animal Care & Control arrived to pick up the hounds, it was discovered that there were actually 28 hounds, desperately in need of help. They were living outdoors in crates stacked on top of each other with no food or water.

Greyhound rescue was contacted immediately. The dogs were in very poor condition. They were covered with ticks. They were bone thin and many had pressure sores all over their bodies. Greyhounds Unlimited and GALT worked together, dividing the greyhounds between the two groups. GU took 8 hounds into their care. GALT took 8 as well.

The TGA (Texas Greyhound Association) was also involved. Many thanks to them and FWACC for their help in this desperate situation.

Funds are desperately needed to help with the medical care of these hounds - please open your hearts and make a difference in their lives.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, a Dallas Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound for sale in Dallas, or seeking a Greyhound dog from a breeder in Dallas.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dallas already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Dallas breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Greyhound breeders who help with Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dallas paves the way for another one to be saved.
