“Kerry Greyhound Connection was set up by Amanda Saunders Perkins in 2002 after realising the sad fate awaiting most of these dogs when they retired from racing. This includes destruction, abandonment or being shipped to Spain where they are kept in atrocious conditions and some raced with terrible injuries. Many are inhumanely killed, often by being hung from trees, or abandoned to die of starvation. Kerry Greyhound Connection is a small voluntary organisation based in County Kerry, Ireland and in Norfolk, England.” LINK
