Grey2K USA:Protecting Greyhounds Nationwide

Greyhound Protection Update - November 21, 2007


Greyhounds Run Toward Victory in Massachusetts


We are proud to announce that over 100,000 signatures have been collected to help put the Massachusetts Greyhound Protection Act on the 2008 ballot!

In an all-volunteer effort, over 2,000 people worked together to help the greyhounds.  As we send this update to you, a team of volunteer drivers is now delivering thousands of signatures to city and town clerks statewide.

The Greyhound Protection Act is a humane measure that will phase out the cruelty of dog racing, and close two dog tracks in Massachusetts.  The initiative is sponsored by the

Committee to Protect Dogs, which is comprised of GREY2K USA, the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the Humane Society of the United States.

Dogs at Wonderland and Raynham Parks are kept confined in small cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around for typically twenty hours per day.  When racing, they face the risk of serious injury.  According to state records, over 700 dogs have been hurt while racing since 2002.  Injuries include broken bones, cardiac arrest, paralysis and seizures. 

Please enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving and consider making a holiday gift to GREY2K USA today!  Your support is needed more than ever, so please remember the greyhounds during this special time.
