Palm Beach Kennel Club Will Lose Greyhounds, But Not Gambling


Changes will be coming at the Palm Beach Kennel Club after Amendment 13 passed Tuesday night.  It will do away with greyhound racing in Florida by the end of 2020.  

Management at the facility in West Palm Beach say right now it's business as usual.  

The amendment allows for the kennel club and other places like it around the state to continue with their other gaming activities.  They've offered poker and simulcasing from other racing venues around the country for years.  

Managers say they'll work to find homes for all of the dogs, though the kennel club doesn't own the animals directly.  They'll likely go through adoption groups to find new homes for the greyhounds.  

The employees who work with the dogs will eventually need to find jobs.
