Guess who wants greyhound racing to end?

Dear Friends,


Just a few days ago, Arizona became the 40th state to prohibit commercial greyhound racing when Governor Doug Ducey signed House Bill 2127 into law. Like other governors before him, Gov. Ducey noted that dog racing's time has most certainly passed:


"Greyhound racing has run its course in Arizona ... it's heartening that these beautiful greyhounds will soon be off the track and in loving homes."


The end of dog racing in Arizona, which once had five tracks, is also clear proof that our legislative strategy to protect greyhounds is working!



How we help greyhounds

Since GREY2K USA’s formation in 2001 we have helped pass sixteen major greyhound protection laws:

  • We led the fight to prohibit dog racing in Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
  • We helped eliminate a state mandate for greyhound racing in Iowa and reduced dog track subsidies in West Virginia.
  • We helped pass a greyhound injury reporting requirement in Florida and worked with Massachusetts lawmakers to pass the only state-funded greyhound adoption trust fund in history. This program provided millions in funding to help dogs find loving homes.


Greyhounds benefit from legislative pressure

Our compassionate plan of action is having a significant impact. Since our formation in 2001, thirty-one American dog tracks have closed or ended live racing and gambling on greyhound racing has dropped by 68%. We have also helped prevent the expansion of this cruelty to countries such as the Philippines and South Africa. In fact, the rate of industry collapse has more than doubled compared to the years before GREY2K USA Worldwide team existed. 


All these advances are happening on a very small budget and thanks to wonderful supporters and volunteers just like you in all the remaining eight racing countries.
