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.

My dog is part Greyhound and I would never want to see any Greyhound raced for money.

Apparently with research and awareness something is not right with how these animals are being treated and at the end of the day I think we know where this is going. Dog fighting used to be a thing, now it's not. Time is a strange thing but if people are actually aware of whats going on then it goes without saying its time for something to happen and step in to prevent a future abuse that doesn't need to take place and really shouldn't have for the time its been. Somethings not right..so you know what that means, just point blank not much explanation needed as much as human intervention and that's important. Without it nothing can change. We rely on truth and common sense and empathy to help mold this world for a safer and healthier future. Only we can do that especially when we can and have the power to.
