Skechers Super Bowl Ad has animal activists barking mad
Jan 14, 2012 — The Long Island Greyhound Transfer, a rescue group based in Hicksville, takes most of its retired racers from tracks in Florida, which still has 13 tracks, said its secretary, Ellen Graff. The dogs are available for adoption at www.ligreyhound.org.
Graff said she signed the petition because it always bother her when greyhound racing “is used frivolously to make a statement about speed without people knowing all the negatives that go with that.”
Many of the dogs are euthanized or are left homeless after they can no longer win and make money for the track, she said.
