Pledge to Protect Greyhounds

    1. Petition by

      GREY2K USA Worldwide

We know that greyhounds deserve to be protected from the cruelty of the racing world.  They enjoy life and need our help. 

You can meet some of our rescued friends and watch how they like to spend their time in the video above. 

Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane, and should end.  At the twenty-two remaining dog tracks in this country, greyhounds are kept confined for an average of twenty hours a day in small, stacked cages.  They are fed a diet based on raw, diseased meat.  Then, when allowed out of their cages to race, they suffer terrible injuries and sometimes die.  Many dogs are simply killed once they are no longer profitable. This is no way to treat a dog! 

Here are four easy things you can do today to help greyhounds:

1. Share the video you just watched with all your friends and family.  Education is the key!

2.  Sign our petition to the governors of all seven dog racing states. Tell them to prohibit greyhound racing now.

3.  Join our team by signing up for online action alerts, hosting an outreach table, writing a letter to the editor and more.

4. Make a donation to help fund our successful campaigns to end dog racing.  Since GREY2K USA was formed in 2001, the industry has been cut in half and twenty-six tracks have closed nationwide!  

Thanks for caring about the greyhounds!

    2. New injury report reveals the cruelty of dog racing in Arkansas

      Breaking news! GREY2K USA has just released a report on injuries suffered by dogs racing at Southland Greyhound Park in West Memphis, Arkansas. This is the first time that such information has ever been made public and the result of almost eight years of denials by officials. We are grateful to the state for finally releasing these documents.

      As reported on the front cover of today's Arkansas Times, from January 2008 through March 2012, more than 450 greyhound injuries were recorded at an average of 8.86 per month at just one track!

      Dogs are pets. Some work loyally to aid the disabled, as service dogs or to shepherd... Dogs used for profit is barbaric and never ends well for the animals.
