"This is an unprecedented accomplishment," says Linda Cliffel, Executive Director of The Sunburst Project. "This is what can be done when we all work together to take greyhounds from racing to retirement."
Cliffel coordinates with greyhound owners, track owners, greyhound associations, private kennels, haulers and adoption groups to make this work. "We have moved greyhounds for 173 National Greyhound Association registered owners this year," confirms Cliffel.

Ebro, FL..... A record breaking haul of 60 retired racing greyhounds by The Sunburst Project transported from Ebro to the Midwest on Saturday, March 31st brings the total of greyhounds sent to adoption across this country and in Canada since opening the kennel doors on August 31, 2011 to an unprecedented 560.
"The Sunburst Project has moved retired racers safely and responsibly from the track to shelter at The Sunburst Project Kennel to approved adoption groups in a timely manner. says Linda Cliffel, Executive Director of The Sunburst Project.

100 Panhandle Greyhounds Sent to Adoption in October
"We are very proud that The Sunburst Project has been able to expand its mission in Florida to include Alabama and help when and where it is needed such as this Mobile kennel closing," said Linda Cliffel of The Northern Consortium and Co-Director of The Sunburst Project.
The Sunburst Project, under the umbrella of The Greyhound Alliance, is committed to moving hundreds of retired racing greyhounds from Panhandle tracks to adoption groups throughout the country and Canada. The Sunburst Project and Adoption Kennel at Ebro Greyhound Park funds efforts from donations and grants, and offers expertise and volunteers to insure the care, transportation and adoption of retired greyhounds.
"There's no place like home! says Cliffel. "We are organizing our "Home for the Holidays Haul" now so if your adoption organization can accept greyhounds before the end of the year, please let us know!"
News Release: September 23, 2011 Contact: Linda Cliffel (813) 468-8771, or
"We are looking at more than 400 greyhounds that need to catch a ride ASAP to an adoption organization or a new home," said Linda Cliffel of The Northern Consortium who coordinates shelter, transportation and adoption for Sunburst Project greyhounds.
As of October 1st, over 150 greyhounds will be leaving Jefferson County Kennel Club (JCKC) in Monticello, Florida. Estimates are that between 50 and 100 greyhounds will have run their last race at Ebro Greyhound Park by September 25 with an additional 80 greyhounds already being sheltered at The Sunburst Project Adoption Kennel at Ebro. And, as Pensacola Greyhound Track reduces racing to twice weekly, 100 greyhounds will be retired from the track in addition to the 28 already waiting adoption in the pet kennel there.
"The Sunburst Project has two hauls scheduled to leave the Panhandle on October 8th," according to Cliffel. "If your adoption organization can accept greyhounds on the Oct 8th haul, please let us know!"

Volunteers Help Sunburst Greyhound Adoption Project and Kennel Prepare Panhandle Greyhounds for New Homes
"We could not succeed in our mission to find homes for so many retired greyhounds without the help of dedicated volunteers," said Linda Cliffel of The Northern Consortium, who handles the logistics for this unprecedented effort.
Last weekend, The Project moved 40 greyhounds from The Sunburst Kennel north making stops at adoption groups in St. Louis, Chicago and Wisconsin. And this weekend, The project will transport 10 greyhounds to an adoption group in Richmond Virginia.
"But there is not time to celebrate," said Cliffel, "as we expect seasonal closings in September and October will leave more than 400 greyhounds in need of relocation."

Adoption Groups and Ebro Greyhound Park to Combine Efforts
"The project is a unique venture to move large numbers of greyhounds from three tracks at once," says Linda Cliffel of The Northern Consortium, an organization that has moved more than 900 Panhandle greyhounds from tracks to homes.
Ebro Greyhound Park, in addition to their own Pet Express Adoption Kennel, has donated the kennel space, now called The Sunburst Kennel, to shelter greyhounds for The Project. The Sunburst Kennel will take in overflow greyhounds from kennels at Pensacola and Monticello as well as Ebro on an as needed basis.
"Based on the present number of greyhounds at our Sunburst Kennel, and those at Pensacola and Monticello kennels, more than 150 greyhounds are available at any given time to move to adoption through The Project," says Cliffel.
