About 150 greyhounds—most of whom had been used for racing—were imprisoned at a Texas blood farm known as The Pet Blood Bank, Inc., where they were trapped inside wire and dirt-floored kennels in an old shed and had nothing to do but spin in circles when they weren’t being bled. Many suffered from severe dental issues, infections, and sores and had no opportunity to be anything but exploited, living blood bags. Under pressure from PETA and the public, The Pet Blood Bank announced on October 26, 2017, that the dogs will be transferred into adoption programs and that the business will close. At last, the dogs can get the care that they deserve as well as an opportunity to play, sniff, and go for walks.
Now, please help dogs at Texas A&M University, where golden retrievers and others are used in cruel experiments.
