Florida TV exposes deadly greyhound racing

Dear Friends,


Last night on First Coast News, GREY2K USA Executive Director Carey Theil was interviewed for a multi-part story on the cruelty of dog racing. He pointed out that antiquated laws keep thousands of dogs running for their lives at twelve tracks in Florida.  


Reporter Jeannie Blaylock showed footage of greyhounds colliding and suffering terrible injuries. Two-year-old Shorty’s Baby Doll died while racing at Orange Park on November 30. She was just one of 367 Florida dogs who have lost their lives since May 2013! ​

Watch her story now:

We are working hard, on multiple fronts, to fight for greyhounds across the Sunshine State. On Wednesday, GREY2K USA President and General Counsel Christine Dorchak testified before the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, the agency responsible for enforcing the rules of racing. Joined by local volunteers and representatives from the Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA, she argued for track injury records to be fully disclosed to the public. This is a team effort!
