GREY2K USA: Protecting Greyhounds Nationwide

URGENT ACTION ALERT - November 3, 2008

For 75 years, greyhounds have suffered at Bay State racetracks.

Right now, thousands of dogs endure lives of terrible confinement at these tracks, forced to live in small cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around for at least 20 hours a day.

When they are let out of their cages to race, many dogs suffer serious injuries. Since 2002 alone more than 800 dogs have injured in Massachusetts, including dogs that suffered broken legs, paralysis and death from cardiac arrest. In our state, a greyhound is injured every three to four days. Finally, greyhounds have recently

died from a mysterious illness and tested positive for cocaine.

This is cruel and inhumane, and must be stopped. Tomorrow, you have a historic opportunity to end this cruelty for good by voting YES on Question 3.

Eight years ago, a nearly identical question was defeated by the closest of margins, 51% to 49%. If the Greyhound Protection Act is defeated again, thousands of dogs will suffer at these tracks in the years to come. We simply cannot afford to let that happen.

This is the last chance for thousands of sensitive, gentle greyhounds, and they are counting on all of us. Please give them your vote tomorrow.

Vote YES for the dogs on Question 3.

For the dogs,

Carey Theil & Christine Dorchak
