Give a dog a home

Sad news from Portsmouth today where efforts are continuing to find homes for a dozen or so greyhounds who lost their jobs and homes following the closure of the city's Greyhound Stadium at the end of March.

The land where punters stood cheering as the dogs raced is going to be re-developed for houses and a park-and-ride.

Lots of work has gone into finding homes for dozens of the dogs - but the last few are still waiting for their new starts.

The Retired Greyhound Trust is spearheading efforts to match the right family with the right dog. They always take a lot of care to make sure that that it's a real happy ending for the humans as well as the dogs.
