Formed in 2001, GREY2K USA Worldwide is the largest greyhound protection organization in the world. As a non-profit entity, we work to pass stronger greyhound protection laws and end the cruelty of dog racing on both national and international levels. We also promote the rescue and adoption of greyhounds across the globe.
Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane, and should be prohibited. GREY2K USA was the first organization to successfully outlaw dog racing using the ballot initiative process. In November 2008, the citizens of Massachusetts chose compassion over cruelty and voted 56%-44% to close down Raynham and Wonderland Greyhound Parks. On November 6, 2018, Floridians voted 69%-31% to phase out dog racing in the Sunshine State by December 2020.
Since our formation, dozens of American dog tracks have closed for live racing, and dog racing is now illegal in 42 states. We also engage all around the globe to end the cruelty of commercial dog racing in the six other countries where it currently exists.
We work to pass stronger greyhound protection laws and prohibit dog racing in the United States and around the world.
We continually document the cruelty of dog racing through reports, conferences, petitions, action alerts and social media.
We regularly support greyhound adoption organizations and contribute financially to rescuing dogs as tracks close.
GREY2K USA Worldwide is an independent, non-profit effort entirely supported by its members. People from all walks of life — including school teachers, dog walkers, veterinarians, accountants, construction workers and corporate CEOs, have joined with us to help end dog racing. We have more than 300,000 supporters worldwide.
GREY2K USA Worldwide does not accept donations from individuals or corporations with a financial interest in commercial dog racing or the gambling industry.
