The American Greyhound Council welcomes you!
Thanks for visiting our website to get the most up-to-date, factual information on greyhound racing, adoption and related topics. You’ve come to the right place.
The American Greyhound Council (AGC) was established in 1987 to fund and manage greyhound welfare, research and adoption programs for the racing community. It is a joint effort of the National Greyhound Association, the official greyhound registry and breeding organization; and the American Greyhound Track Operators Association.
The AGC works with breeders, tracks, adoption groups, regulators, elected officials and others to ensure the health and safety of greyhounds at every stage of their lives.
Please browse the website to learn more about greyhound adoption, greyhound farms and tracks, industry standards, greyhound welfare and research programs, and why greyhounds make such wonderful pets.
As if things weren't bad enough for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt now has issued subpoenas to HSUS as part of his office's ongoing inquiry into the organization's fundraising practices, according to Humanewatch.org.
When the National Greyhound Association (NGA) evacuated dozens of neglected greyhounds from an Arkansas farm in May and later banned its owner from greyhound racing for life, greyhound welfare advocates around the country applauded. At least, the real greyhound welfare advocates applauded. But not Carey Theil, Grey2K's top mouthpiece. Instead, Theil condemned NGA's humane intervention. According to him, the NGA did everything wrong. Yet today those greyhounds, which might not have survived otherwise, are alive and well, and a sub-standard breeder is out of the business forever. So why is Carey so upset?
The National Greyhound Association (NGA) has reaffirmed its pledge of cooperation to Arkansas law enforcement authorities if they choose to prosecute expelled breeder Shane Vonderstrasse--and fired back at the latest 'wrong and hypocritical' attack from Grey2K USA's Carey Theil.
At a June 4 hearing in Abilene, the Board of Directors of the National Greyhound Association (NGA) revoked the membership and registry privileges of Shane Vonderstrasse of Mt. Pleasant, Arkansas, effective immediately. The action was taken following a May 15 NGA inspection that disclosed greyhounds on the facility not receiving proper care and adequate shelter. NGA inspectors were accompanied by local law enforcement during the inspection.
