Ban Greyhound Racing in the U.S.

PETITION: Ban Greyhound Racing in the U.S.

TARGET: Governors of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Texas, and West Virginia

In the last five years, nearly 1,000 racing greyhounds have died and 12,000 have suffered injuries from broken legs, crushed skulls, broken necks, paralysis, seizures, and death by electrocution. As these are just the reported injuries and deaths, the majority of the 80,000 greyhounds born into dog racing can't even be accounted for. Seven states still have active greyhound tracks, despite the injuries, deaths, and cruelty surrounding the industry. They are fed a diet based on cheap, diseased meat, and are routinely deprived of basic veterinary care. Greyhounds are often dosed with dangerous, illegal drugs and some dogs have even tested positive for cocaine. Greyhound racing is illegal in most of the country. But we need your help in signing this petition to demand that the cruel practice of greyhound racing be brought to an end in the seven remaining states where racing continues.

Respectfully,

Racing dogs is animal abuse. And exploiting these animals because of greed is pure evil. This violates our divinely appointed task of Properly managing and being excellent stewards of all animals that God has created. I also happen to love Greyhounds. Also, we once adopted a Greyhound mix; she was a sweetheart.

A horrible, shamelful exploitation of wonderful dogs that have the capability and desire to run and chase fuzzy little animals. When they can no longer race and win, they are They often discarded like trash, left in airports to starve or brutally killed because they have lost any value. Their owners just want the profit and they do not keep these great dogs which can be adopted and make great companions. Please put strong laws in effect to not have any more greyhound races anywhere.
