	Florida sub-committee approves 																						greyhound bill, calls needed


**URGENT ACTION ALERT**
**PLEASE FORWARD AND CROSSPOST TO ALL LISTS**

Friends,

Great news: thousands of Florida greyhounds are closer to being helped than ever before!

Lawmakers in the Sunshine State are now considering two bills (Senate Bill 1594 and House Bill 1145) to decouple greyhound racing from other forms of gambling. If these bills pass, greyhound racing will be significantly reduced and may even end completely at thirteen racetracks.

This means that greyhound injuries will be significantly reduced, and the number of greyhounds enduring lives of terrible confinement will also drop. To read a letter I sent to lawmakers yesterday in support this bill, click here.

Thanks to the hard work of thousands of grassroots volunteers, these humane bills have already passed five legislative committees, and are on the verge of becoming law. Today, we need your help to push them over the finish line!

Early next week, two Florida Senate Committees will vote on our Senate Greyhound Decoupling Bill (Senate Bill 1594).

Please call and e-mail each of the lawmakers listed below right away, and politely ask them to support Senate Bill 1594. If you have an adopted greyhound, please mention this in your call.

Tell lawmakers that this is a good bill that will reduce greyhound injuries and reduce the number of greyhounds that endure lives of confinement. Also, tell them that they should not listen to the scare tactics being used by greyhound breeders who want only to protect their cruel industry.

Finally, please remember to forward this message to everyone you know. The greyhounds can't speak for themselves, and are counting on us to be their voice!

Sincerely,


Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.
