March Dogs, part II
Thirteen greyhounds came to GreySave on March 29: Brinna, Cassie, Dansia, Dawson, Gable, Jet, Joy, Leslie, Manny Megan, Olive, Spade, and Stacy. They're settling into their foster homes now. You can read more about them near the bottom of the Adoptables page. We'll add their profiles to the Adoptables page as their pet personalities emerge. You can see how their day goes from the time we get them from the track at The Last Lap.
Uncontrollable Bleeding and Amacar
We've seen a number of greyhounds lose their lives or almost die due to uncontrollable bleeding, usually following surgery. A leading reason for this is not well known to vets who don't regularly work with greyhounds. Learn in our new article, Uncontrollable Bleeding and Amacar, about
the one medicine ALL greyhound adopters should know: Aminocaproic acid, more commonly called Amacar. It's second in the list of topics on the linked page.
ASPCA Toxic Plant Database
Many common plants around the house and garden, although not fatal, cause diarrhea, gastrointestinal problems, and other health issues. We've put a link to a useful ASPCA database of such plants with photos. Go to the top of our Gardens and Greyhounds page for a link to this database, as well as lots of other helpful tips on greyhounds in your garden.

You can read more about them near the bottom of the Adoptables page. We'll add their profiles to the Adoptables page as their pet personalities emerge. You can see how their day goes from the time we get them from the track at The Last Lap.

Why Always on a Leash?
It’s beautiful to watch a Greyhound run, so why does GreySave join most Greyhound adoption groups in having a “never off leash in an unenclosed area” policy? These groups have carefully thought through this policy and based it on experience with thousands and thousands of adopted Greyhounds. Here are some of the reasons behind it.
