Red Alert: Call Governor Scott Now

Dear friends,

On Tuesday, two legislative committees in Tallahassee will vote on proposals to overhaul the state’s gambling laws. Right now these bills include new greyhound protection laws, including greyhound decoupling!

If greyhound decoupling is approved, it will lead to a major reduction of dog racing in the state and the closure of several tracks altogether. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help these beautiful dogs, and they need your help right now.

Please take a few moments and call the lawmakers below. These lawmakers sit on the Senate Regulated Industries and House Regulatory Affairs Committees, and will decide the fate of these new greyhound protection laws.

When you make your calls, please ask these lawmakers to Vote Yes on Any Bill that Includes Greyhound Decoupling. Also consider making the following points:

  • According to state records, a greyhound dies every three days at Florida dog tracks. Also, thousands of dogs endure lives of confinement at these facilities, kept in small cages for long hours each day.
  • Dogs are suffering and dying needlessly for an industry that is no longer profitable. Even the state is losing money on greyhound racing, because the cost of regulation exceeds gambling revenues.
  • It is wrong for the state to mandate greyhound racing. Decoupling will fix this problem, and help thousands of dogs.

Please call as many of these lawmakers as possible, and ask them to vote Yes for the Dogs on Greyhound Decoupling.
