    I am currently completing the level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management. For my course I am carrying out a project on ex racing greyhounds and would be extremely grateful if you could answer a few questions if you own or have previously owed an ex racing greyhound. The aim for my project is to[SIZE=11pt] investigate the facilities of greyhound racing and its effects on their later life. I have attached the questionnaire and would be thankful if you could send the completed questionnaire onto this forum topic or send it via my email address: izzyastle@btinternet.com [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=14.6667px]Any information that you may have about your ex racing greyhound would be appreciated. [/SIZE]

    Thank you,

    Isobel
