Announcing the first federal bill in US history to end dog racing! Sponsored in chief by Representative Tony Cárdenas of California, H.R. 3335, the Greyhound Protection Act will make it a federal crime to engage in commercial dog racing. Following the release of our successful investigation of live lure training by greyhound breeders in three American states, this legislation could not be more important for both hounds and rabbits. This groundbreaking measure is endorsed by shelters, animal protection groups and civic organizations across the country and around the globe.
If you live in the United States, please write to your Representative in Washington, DC and ask him or her to co-sponsor this groundbreaking legislation. Let your lawmaker know racing is a terrible industry that is bad for the dogs, bad for the unwitting taxpayers who subsidize it, and completely violates the values of this country. Then, no matter where you live, please contact President Joe Biden and ask him to support a nationwide ban on greyhound racing.

GREY2K USA Worldwide was the chief sponsor of Florida's Amendment 13, the successful 2018 ballot question to prohibit dog racing in its oldest and biggest US state. Twelve tracks were ordered to shut down and thousands of greyhounds released for adoption by December 2020.
Then, in October 2019, Southland announced its closure by December 2022, ending dog racing in Arkansas.
