GREY2K USA Action Alert


International Threats to Greyhounds, Letters Needed!

Dear Friends:

We have just learned that efforts to open dog tracks in the South Pacific and in the Caribbean are underway.

Please send your letters of concern to officials on behalf of the greyhounds. Thousands of dogs will be doomed to injury and death if racetracks are legalized in these new jurisdictions.

The Philippines

In the Philippines, House Bill No. 5291—An Act Granting the Fox Millenium Amusement Club a Franchise to Construct, Operate and Maintain a Greyhound Racetrack—would make dog racing legal in the city of Mandaue. This dangerous measure has already been approved by a legislative conference committee.

Please send a letter of support for the greyhounds to:

H.E. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, President
Malacanang Palace
JP Laurel Street, San Miguel
Manila NCR 1005
The Philippines

St. Kitts

In St. Kitts, which is part of the Caribbean Islands, there are plans to open two greyhound tracks. Dogs will be shipped from the United States to this very small island if the St. Kitts and Nevis Racing Bill of 2009 goes unchallenged.

Please send a letter of support for the greyhounds to:

Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas
Office of the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis
Government Headquarters
Church Street, Basseterre
St. Kitts (Prime Minister's press secretary)

South Africa

Meanwhile, as first reported in February, South Africa is still considering whether to overturn decades of law and legalize dog racing legal in the republic. A special government commission, which met with GREY2K USA and other organizations worldwide, will release its recommendation on Monday.

Please send a letter of support for the greyhounds to:

Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, President
c/o Ms. Zingaphi Jakuja, Liaison

For facts about the cruelty of dog racing, read our fact sheet, then please write your letters and forward this message as widely as possible using the forward button below.

Thanks for caring about the greyhounds!

Christine Dorchak and Carey Theil
