Tom and Kim Scholz

Knowing that a dog dies every three days at a Florida racetrack, we had to become a part of the historic campaign to end dog racing. We have supported the work of GREY2K USA for many years and support Amendment 13 to put an end to this industrialized cruelty to dogs.

— Tom and Kim Scholz, Boston

Nancy Perry

It has been exciting to watch the innovative and tenacious way GREY2K USA Worldwide has advanced the cause of greyhounds — lifting the veil on inherent cruelties of the dog racing world and then working systematically to end this abuse. This wonderful organization has spearheaded tangible progress in recent decades, bringing hope that greyhound racing may be relegated to an historic footnote within our lifetimes.

Miss Sally

“My dear ‘Miss Sally’ is a regular at nursing homes. Still timid from her racing days, she jumps and runs at any loud noise. One can only wonder what she was subjected to at the racetrack. Sally will lean in to people and snuggle to be petted — but to this day she hardly ever wags her tail.”

— Donna Andres, Michigan, United States


“Rhian is living the good life now but he endured terrible treatment after breaking his toes and injuring his tarsus (like our wrist) in a training race.

GREY2K USA is responsible both fiscally and humanly.”
