Dairyland dogs won't be put down, despite rumor

KENOSHA (AP) -- A greyhound adoption group wants to silence rumors that hundreds of dogs could be put to sleep when Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha closes.

Ellen Paulus heads the state chapter of Greyhound Pets of America.

She says a message being circulated through e-mail and Facebook is not true.

It claims 900 greyhounds could be killed if they're not adopted by the end of the year.

She's spent hours responding to questions about the rumor.

She estimates there may be 200 to 300 dogs available and her group will help Dairyland relocate the dogs once the track closes at the end of the year.

She says the time she's spent dealing with the rumor could have been devoted to networking on behalf of the dogs looking for new homes.
