Meet Amy and Becca

We adopted Amy and Becca in October 2016, just after their 2nd birthday. They are littermates, were bonded and had been fostered together. FOTH was looking for a family with young children and cats to take on two greyhounds as they were happy with both kids and cats. We, on the other hand were looking for two dogs to adopt. My massage therapist boarded her dogs occasionally with the foster family’s boutique dog hotel, and suggested I give them a call. By this time, the perfect family had not appeared on the horizon for Amy and Becca, so they settled on a couple of grey-haired retirees! How delighted we are to have them in our lives!

The event was focused on opposition to this commercial gambling industry which is responsible for the wastage of thousands of greyhounds every year, and its culture of cruelty, corruption, and complacency, and opposition to continued government support of this industry that does not meet community expectations.
