According to an article in the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/wire/sns-ap-us-greyhound-glut,0,7894785.story

Efforts to find x-racing greyhounds new homes have increased since the closing of dog racing tracks in Wisconsin, Arizona and Massachusetts. The president of The Greyhound Project Inc. fears that now there will be more dogs available for adoption than there are homes willing to take them in. Kevin Neuman has started a non-profit organization (greyhoundcentral.org) to help adopt greyhounds out.

we have 200 greyhounds in portsmouth looking for temporary foster homes because the track is closing down on 31st march. there is a desperate plea gone out from the greyhound rescue organisation but i fear most of these dogs wont be rehomed. lord knows what will happen to them. if anyone in the south of england can help out by temporarily fostering or even giving a permanent home to one of the deserving guys please visit:_
