Tell Skechers to stop promoting dog racing

tgp Earlier this month, a TV crew was seen filming a commercial for Skechers shoes at Tucson Greyhound Park (TGP).  Please join us in asking the company not to promote the cruelty of dog racing by using this footage.

At TGP, greyhounds are kept confined in small cages which are barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around.  They are fed raw 4-D meat, the meat of downed, diseased, disabled or dead livestock.  This was documented in a recent video investigation.

BellaWhile racing, greyhounds face the risk of serious injury.  According to state records, between January 2007 and November 2009, nearly 1,000 greyhound injuries were reported at Arizona racetracks.  The most common injury was a broken leg, and other reported injuries included fractures, sprains, dislocations, muscle tears and strains, lacerations, a cracked skull, broken backs, heat stroke, puncture wounds and paralysis. To learn more, please see our full report and video.

Please read our letter to Skecher’s officials and then sign our petition now

You may also wish to e-mail President Michael Greenberg and Vice President of Media Gary Patrick directly at michaelg@skechers.com and garyp@skechers.com, respectively.

Go team!

P.S.  We have just learned that Skechers approached an adoption group and offered to pay $10,000 for use of its dogs.  Bob Smith and Barbara Davenport of Homestretch Greyhound Rescue and Adoption refused and informed the company that they would not help promote dog racing.  Please go to their web site and show them your support today.
