Greyhound Rehoming Center Sold Animals For Research
How low can you go? If this allegation is true then this scumball was telling people their greyhounds would be cared for and then selling them to medical research!

Class Action Lawsuit Claims Greyhound Dog “Adoption” Facility Sold Pets for Research
A class action lawsuit has been filed in Chicago (Cook County) alleging that the plaintiffs provided their greyhound dogs to the defendant for adoption as pets, and that the defendant in turn sold the dogs to research facilities. The defendant reportedly received as much as $500,000 for selling the greyhound dogs to a research facility that would use the dogs to test cardiac devices such as pacemakers. Thereafter, the dogs were euthanized. The named plaintiff in the lawsuit claims that he adopted his dog to the Greyhound Adoption of Iowa, which claimed it provided homes for dogs to be adopted as pets whose racing careers ended.
