GREY2K USA Action Alert


Please Rally for the Greyhounds in Providence!

Dear Friends,

Please come to a Rhode Island rally for the greyhounds! Your voices are needed to make sure dog racing ends at Twin River this summer, as planned.

Who: Greyhound advocates and their dogs

What: Rally to End Dog Racing

When: Saturday, July 18, 11 am - 1 pm

Where: State House, 82 Smith Street, Providence

Signs will be provided but bring your own as well!

GREY2K USA has teamed up with Defenders of Animals, Volunteer Services for Animals, the Humane Association of Northwestern RI, and the West Warwick Angels to fight for the greyhounds. All of our sister states have already ended dog racing, leaving Twin River as the last outlet for this cruelty in New England.

Background: As reported previously, Rhode Island’s only dog track declared bankruptcy and announced the voluntary end of dog racing as of August 8. Responding to the appeals of greyhound breeders, state lawmakers then passed a bill to mandate that live racing continue, which Governor Carcieri immediately vetoed.

Now, these same greyhound breeders are asking lawmakers for an override — something we must stop. Let’s make sure greyhound racing ends in New England. Click here to read the latest news.

Please forward this e-mail to everyone you know, to give the greyhounds a big presence on Saturday. For more information, please call Dennis Tabella at 401-461-1922.

Thanks for caring about the greyhounds!

Christine Dorchak and Carey Theil

The Rhode Island State House
