On January 3rd, Teddy Palmer’s birthday, Halfway home greyhounds in Tulsa, OK officially posted on their website: “With the changing racing greyhound industry and many of the greyhound farms closing, there are fewer greyhounds that need homes. With the lack of greyhounds along with family health issues, it is with sadness and a ”greyt” sense of accomplishment, that halfway Home Greyhound Adoption closed its doors in 2020. Since 2001 we have helped over 6,670 racing and farm greyhounds move into adoption groups and forever homes. Thank you - we could not have done this without you and your support.” Teddy Palmer is a true pioneer in greyhound adoption. A former greyhound adoption person of the year, she dedicated herself to the group and precious hounds. In the early years Teddy traveled the state of Oklahoma getting to know greyhound breeders and trainers and introducing them to the idea of greyhound adoption. So many of you have Oklahoma bred and/or trained greyhounds that came thru halfway home. I am honored to have known Teddy well......and so blessed to have our past and present “family members” whistlers win, Rivendell escort, kL baby bleu, rollover ronee, rowdy Jill and beware of Phog because of teddy. Thank you teddy and Russ for all you have done! They truly made a difference - well done! A “greyt” accomplishment indeed.
