Stop cruel dog racing mandates

    1. Petition by

      GREY2K USA Worldwide

Believe it or not, states like Florida and Iowa actually require live greyhound racing in order for other forms of gambling to exist.  This means the dogs are forced to suffer needlessly while the cruel racing industry is propped up. Many of these businesses would like to stop dog racing due to the decline in interest, but they are unable to do so within the current law. That is why we need your help now to pass greyhound decoupling.

GREY2K USA Worldwide is gearing up for the 2014 legislative season, and laying the groundwork for several important greyhound protection laws. Most notably, we expect greyhound decoupling to be debated in Iowa and Florida.

If greyhound decoupling passes, it will significantly reduce dog racing. That means that fewer greyhounds will endure lives of confinement and suffer injuries.

Please sign our online petition contacting Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Florida Governor Rick Scott. Ask them to support greyhound decoupling. Specifically, tell them that greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane, and that businesses should not be forced to lose money on dog racing to offer other forms of betting.

      Because these dogs deserve rest and to get to live their lives. Just because they're greyhounds doesn't mean they should suffer especially with injuries.
