Ban Greyhound Racing in the US

      Wilton Manors, FL

At commercial racetracks across the country, thousands of dogs live in warehouse-style kennels, confined for long hours each day in cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around. Every year, thousands of dogs are seriously injured while racing, and thousands more are killed when they are no longer able to compete.

Please sign the petition below and urge your elected official to work on legislation to ban greyhound racing in your state.  BY doing so, you will help to prevent the breeding, confining, endangering, and killing of greyhounds.

      This is not for entertainment or fun. I want this to be banned all over the country. Please get these dogs out of show business and help them find new homes to live in and retire.

      Greyhounds are the most majestic animal in the world. Racing degrades humans for their treatment of these gorgeous creatures.

      There is a horiffic dark side of Greyhound Raceing. If you ever encounter a retired racer, you will find one of the most forgiving creature on the planet. They live a very hard life on the track but they can forgive and forget.. They will be one of the best house pets you will ever encounter. They give back so much love.
