GlobalGreyhounds.com announces a new featured auction (October 3rd Â 9th) for the UK/Irish greyhound market which will unite buyers and sellers of greyhounds via its new website medium, the GlobalGreyhounds Marketplace.
The founders intend to provide owners an outlet to sell several quality greyhound pups, broods, racers and stud services to other greyhound owners, trainers, breeders and enthusiasts worldwide. The greyhound lots will be sold by means of an online auction format similar to other marketplace portals on the internet today.
GlobalGreyhounds.com is the international leader for e-commerce technology within the greyhound racing industry. The online community is the meeting place of over 5,500 members worldwide. By hosting the worldÂs first online auction of greyhounds in November of 2001, GlobalGreyhounds is on track to provide the latest technological advancements for the industry and its members.
The website has hosted over 5 auctions and featuring over $125,000 in greyhound sales. But the bidders and sellers of the greyhound lots are not the only winners -- the greyhound dogs are also benefiting from the sales. The 2004 Winter and Summer Greyhound auctions raised over $17,000 for greyhound adoption and welfare agencies throughout the country.
GlobalGreyhounds LTD American co-founder, Wendy Hamilton, said, "IÂm really pleased at how generous the members of the greyhound community are. There are several greyhound adoption groups working hard for the greyhound industry, and this is a great way for the owners and breeders to show their appreciation for their time and efforts."
Auction access is free to the internet public through the GlobalGreyhounds.com website and the registration process straightforward. Sellers may list their lots for the price of a classifieds advert with most major publications. Once the user's account is verified, the lots may be bid upon. The lots are listed in a user-friendly format similar to other major online auction websites.
The GlobalGreyhounds LTD Irish co-founder, James Corbett, said, "Our first online auctions featuring Irish greyhound stock, so we think that the British and Irish markets are ready once again for consistent online auctions. With the substantial increase in prize money in Ireland, there is an abundance of new owners and breeders who need to unite."
