Ask Arizona Governor to Sign Greyhound Bill

    1. Petition by

      GREY2K USA Worldwide

A few days ago, we released footage of fatal injuries suffered at Arizona’s last remaining greyhound track, Tucson Greyhound Park. Please watch our video to see injuries suffered by dogs like  and Oxbow Savage, who cracked his skull and died during his final race.

You can also see KVOA-TV’s coverage, which includes reaction from track management.

State records show that nearly 1,000 greyhound injuries were reported from 2007-2009 at Pheonix and Tucson Greyhound Parks. 37% were broken or sprained legs and other injuries included broken backs, dislocations, heat stroke, puncture wounds and paralysis. On average, Tucson Greyhound Park, the state's last remaining track, reported two greyhound injuries per week.

As long as greyhound racing continues, dogs will continue to suffer and die. But we can work together to stop this. Please sign the petition below to ask Governor Brewer to support House Bill 2536. Learn more at GREY2KUSA.org.

      This is a blood sport and needs to stop. Animals should not die for our personal gain.

      Greyhounds are especially sweet dogs and depend upon us to take care of them humanely. They should not be treated cruelly for entertainment or sport.

      What a sad life for these animals---they all need to be in loving homes cuddled with the family. Taking walks, and having fun. . .I want to see them all in a much happier and safer environment called a home!

      I totally agree with your immigration policies, and I hope to say I agree with the stopping of greyhound racing in your state as well!
