My story

I will sit and come on command

Kami isn't just pretty on the outside. She's also loving and so cuddly and affectionate with her people.

Those ears! Kami has a super sweet face topped with irresistible wonky ears. She could not possibly be any cuter.

But Kami isn't just pretty on the outside. She's also loving and so cuddly and affectionate with her people. Just check out that pic of her on the back of the couch, snuggling her foster dad.

Kami enjoys the company of other dogs and can even go to doggie daycare. She plays with dogs of all sizes, from mini dachsunds to Saint Bernards. She loves playing with her ball and will fetch for as long as you'll throw it. She's a fan of chew toys but has never chewed on anything in the home that's not for her. Kami is such a perfect house guest!

Kami is a 3 year old black mouth cur mix that weighs around 50 pounds. She's a smart girl and very treat motivated, so training will be a breeze for her. She needs a home with folks who will engage her and allow her to be part of the family. She's already house trained, too! She is anxious in new situations and people, so proper introductions are always needed.

If you think Kami might be your perfect match, call or text The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387. She's in Beloit, KS, but transport is available to her forever home.

More about this rescue

Greyhounds are notoriously over bred to support the racing industry. According to industry breeding reports published in The Greyhound Review, there were 77,852 litters registered by the National Greyhound Association between 1989 and 2000. Multiplied by a conservative average of 6.52 pups per litter, the result shows that more than 507,596 greyhounds were born curing that twelve-year period. Their lives are difficult from the outset. In order to track the dogs for racing, greyhound puppies are tattooed by three months of age and are individually registered by 18 months. Of those born, only 78% of those puppies were individually registered during the same twelve-year period. Because very few are ever found wandering, the 22% not registered are presumed dead. On average, a revolving baseline of 1,000 dogs is needed to sustain a racetrack operation. In 2000, approximately 26,500 greyhounds entered the racing system, and an equal or greater number of greyhounds, aged between 2 and 5 years old, exited the system. Approximately 13,000 dogs were retired to rescue groups for adoption, leaving approximately 13,500 unaccounted for. This sport has conservatively claimed the lives of more than 1,000,000 greyhounds in its 75-year U.S. history. KCREGAP is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. KCREGAP is dedicated to finding loving homes for retired greyhounds. Since its inception, 4000 greys have been adopted into loving homes in the KC Metro area and beyond. The reality is that, because of poor track standards, many beautiful greyhounds come to us with health issues requiring veterinary attention. The adoption fee charged by KCREGAP does not cover the actual costs incurred in treating these dogs. Costs often climb into the thousands of dollars.
