August 8, 2018 -- According to an agreement between the Massachusetts Attorney General's office and Greyhound Friends, Inc. Greyhound friends must abide by certain practices and employ particular skills among their board. The big takeaway is that founder and former Director Louise Coleman may not serve in any capacity within the organization. She may, however, fund-raise on behalf of Greyhound Friends as a private individual. Ms. Coleman was found not guilty of animal cruelty after a four-day trial last year, and contrary to the charges against her, commended her for her work. Video linked to MWDN.
