Curious About What Will Happen To Mass. Greyhounds

Three days after Massachusetts voted to ban dog racing, many are now wondering what will happen to the greyhounds.

Voters passed Question 3 on Election Day, which would eliminate dog racing in the state by 2010.

There are currently 900 race dogs at Raynham Park. It’s expected they will have much fewer dogs by the end of 2009.

The race track told WBZ many of the dogs will go to tracks in 12 other states that allow racing, while others will be adopted out.

Supporters of the ban said they’ll reach out to the tracks to help with adoptions, but kennel owners will have the final say.
