Stop Greyhound Racing in the United States

Dog racing is cruel and inhumane, and should be phased out. While at the racetrack, dogs live a life of nearly endless confinement, suffer serious injuries, and are sometimes killed when they are no longer profitable. 

Thousands of dogs are seriously injured each year at commercial racetracks, including dogs that suffer broken legs, cardiac arrest, spinal cord paralysis and broken necks. Unfortunately, not all of these injuries are reported to the public because some states do not even keep records on the number of dogs injured each year.

Thousands of dogs are killed when they are injured or are no longer fast enough to be profitable. According to the pro-racing National Greyhound Association, an estimated 5,000 dogs were killed in 2003.

      Cruelty of the "sport". Inhumane treatment of the animals and the high number of racing related injuries and deaths.

      I have greyhounds and know they deserve a better life than a kennel at a race track.
