IT'S NOW OR NEVER! Your voice is needed to stop Florida dog racing

Dear Friends,


Last week there was a major advance for the greyhounds when the Executive Committee of the Constitutional Revision Commission voted for a proposal to end dog racing! As a result, we are closer than ever to ending dog racing in Florida. However, we will not be done until the full Commission approves the measure.

In the next phase, the full Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) will hold five public hearings around the state. At these hearings they will take public testimony on all pending proposals, including Proposal 67 to phase out greyhound racing. The first hearing is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon in Ft. Lauderdale.

Greyhound breeders are already organizing for these hearings, and plan to have many speakers defend the cruelty of dog racing. We can’t let them get away with this. It’s absolutely crucial that you attend one of these public hearings, and ask Commissioners to Vote Yes on Proposal 67! Please also ask a friend to join you. The greyhounds need as many voices as possible. It’s now or never!

To speak, you simply need to show up and fill out an appearance form. When you are called, you will be given a few moments to tell Commissioners why they should support Proposal 67. If you have a rescued greyhound, be sure to tell them about your four-legged friend and bring a photo if you have one! (Please don't bring your greyhound to the hearing). Also, in talking to Commissioners, you can use our Proposal 67 Fact Sheet as a guide.

Once these hearings are complete, the CRC will take final action on Proposal 67. If we succeed, voters will then decide the fate of greyhound racing this November. Please be sure to attend the public hearing closest to you, and help us give the greyhounds a voice. Together, we can end this cruelty for good!​

For the greyhounds,
