In 2001, when GREY2K USA was formed, there were nearly 50 dog tracks in fifteen states.
Now, with this month's closure of VictoryLand in Alabama, there are just twenty-two tracks left.
This means the industry has been cut in half in just
ten years! Read information about dog racing today by downloading our new fact sheet.
To celebrate his love of greyhounds and all dogs, mystery bookwriter David Rosenfelt is holding
a contest to name a character in his next novel. Entries may be purchased for $5 each, $10 for three or $20 for ten chances. Proceeds from the contest will benefit GREY2K
USA and the Humane Society of Souhtern Arizona.
Buy chances here for your dog to win! The drawing is not limited to
greyhounds, but wouldn't it be great if a rescued racer won?
The contest ends July 5 with a special drawing at Clues Unlimited bookstore in Tucson. But you need not be present to win. For more information, go here.
All of our greyhounds are stars, but here's a great new way to show it!
