28 Neglected Greyhounds found in Fort Worth

This incident was brought to my attention by a fellow Etsy for Animals: Artists Helping Animals (EFA) member. I thought it was only appropriate to share the information here.

If they could these tick infested and malnourished Greyhounds would have thanked a Fort Worth Water Department employee for noticing a large number of animals and for taking the time to contact Fort Worth Animal Care and Control. Thanks to this active citizen, 28 greyhounds were found.

Read more about this incident in the Dallas Morning News.

According to the EFA member, one has already perished. The rest have been taken in by the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas and Greyhounds Unlimited. They are holding a benefit auction for these greyhounds called Emergency Carpe Canem Auction for Texas Hounds.

That is so sad. I'm really glad that water service employee DIDN'T decide "It's none of my business." That person should be thanked!
