Great news! Arizona House committee votes for the greyhounds

Dear Friend,

I have just come back from a crowded hearing room at the Arizona Capitol and have some wonderful news to share!

dog cageThe House Committee on Commerce voted unanimously in favor of SB 1273, a bill to reduce greyhound racing at Tucson Greyhound Park (TGP). This humane proposal is now headed for a plenary vote in the full House.

SB 1273 is the first big step in ending dog racing in Arizona. This measure was filed by the racetrack itself at the urging of GREY2K USA.  It eliminates a state law which requires TGP to hold greyhound races year round, including the hottest days of summer and the coldest day of winter. 

Instead, SB 1273 reduces TGP's mandate from 50 weeks to 100 days each year. It also opens the door for less racing, even allowing the elimination of greyhound racing altogether.

This legislation means the beginning of the end of live dog racing in Arizona! Where once there were five tracks in Arizona, now there is just one.

Let's keep working until Tucson Greyhound Park also stops hurting dogs. As reported by our Executive Director last week, greyhounds there are being run to the ground.
