Tucson: Yappy News You Can Use

Good News
Lush Cosmetics in the UK started a wonderful campaign to educate the public about why they shouldn’t bet on the dogs and greyhound adoption awareness. Kudos to Lush! Watch the beautiful video.

Bad News
45  racing greyhounds belonging to a trainer from the Ebro Dog Track in Florida starved to death. That’s an unspeakable crime. There’s much finger pointing going on as people complained about the smell but nobody investigated. Finally, GPA-EC (Emerald Coast) reported it and thank you for that. Ebro is a seasonal track which recently closed. Read more and find out what you can do to end the cruel sport of greyhound racing.

Beading Divas in the News News

Best Greyhound Calendar News
Like most pet calendars, they’re a dime a dozen but GREY2K USA’s calendar is a bit different. Yes, there are gorgeous photos of greyhounds from all over the planet but this is more than pretty pictures. Various dates are highlighted for the accomplishments, struggles, and ongoing fight to end greyhound racing.  Smile at pictures and educate yourself about the progress made. It’s the greyhound calendar for advocates! Order yours today.
