Wings for Greyhounds, Inc
"In 1996, using a small private plane and with the help of volunteer pilots and co-pilots, Maggie McCurry began flying retired racing Greyhounds between Greyhound rescue organizations working at the Arizona race tracks and the outlying Greyhound adoption centers in the Los Angeles, Northern and Central California area. The requests for Greyhound flights grew and Wings for Greyhounds was incorporated as a non-profit entity."
"The lurcher is a silent hunting dog used for hunting and running down game. Usually a cross between a Greyhound (sometimes a Whippet or Saluki) and other breeds. The lurcher is not a breed of dog but a type, produced by customising the Greyhound to the specific needs of the lurcher owner."
Trust - A Deadly Disease
