Limerick greyhound community promoting greyhounds as pets

Limerick's Ken Duce was one of the first greyhound trainers in the region to volunteer to help spread the word that greyhounds make great pets. Ken is pictured with his greyhounds Jim and Lewis

THE Irish Retired Greyhound Trust put a call out the Irish greyhound community earlier this year to ask for their help to promote the organisation and greyhounds as pets to the general public.   

The response was fantastic and has resulted in trainers and owners across the country volunteering to have their vans branded with the IRGT logo and message. 

The result is a fleet of branded vans out and about each day, helping to spread the message of the organisation to the general public. 

As Joanne Murray of the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust says, “We already know that retired racing greyhounds make the best pets, and now the racing community are helping us to tell everyone else!.

She continued: “The greyhound community are on the road every day for trials, racing, getting supplies, visiting the vet and much more and offer us a great opportunity to encourage households to consider adopting an ex-racing greyhound as their family pet”.
