Dear Friend,

 

Today staff and board members of GREY2K USA Worldwide are on the ground in Florida, speaking to voters as they enter to cast a vote for Amendment 13.  If passed by a margin of 60%, this humane measure will trigger the phase-out of dog racing over twenty-six months. Commercial dog racing will be prohibited on December 31, 2020.

Thankfully, dog racing is already illegal in 40 states, and since 1990, the amount of money wagered on dog racing in the Sunshine State has plummeted by 74%. Tax revenue has declined by 98% and the tracks themselves now lose a combined $34 million. Amendment 13 saves dollars and save dogs.​


But the stakes could not be higher as Florida was the first state to legalize greyhound gambling and still remains its American stronghold as home to 11 of the 17 tracks nationwide. Other countries followed its terrible example – but the tide will turn with a #Yeson13 vote today! ​

Please be sure to watch our news feed and facebook page for results as they come in.

For the greyhounds,
