Kennel Abandoned, Dogs Left to Die at Ebro Greyhound Park
Today we bring the terrible news that nearly forty greyhounds have been found abandoned and many starved to death at Ebro Greyhound Park in Florida. Their “trainer,” Ronald John Williams was charged with 37 counts of felony animal cruelty over the weekend. Since then, more dead dogs may have been found at his home.
Please read the stories posted below and join us in demanding justice for the Ebro dogs. Ask Washington County prosecutor Erin Oliver to pursue the strongest penalties available under the law. Click here to read a sample letter and then please send your own thoughts to:

It is shocking that innocent greyhounds are made to suffer like this. Join us in demanding punishment for this latest example of greyhound abuse, and please donate to our campaigns to end dog racing in Florida and nationwide. It’s time to stop this cruelty once and for all.
For the greyhounds,
