Greyhounds are loving creatures and great pets, but unfortunately, they are regarded as mere money-making machines in the racing world. Thousands of these animals face a lifetime of cruelty. Many are mistreated every year in order to be profitable at the racetracks, and then simply "discarded" after they can no longer race.

Ask your Governor to introduce legislation banning greyhound racing. Sign the petition and tell a friend.

Dear Governor,

As one of your voting constituency, I urge you to introduce legislation banning greyhound racing. These gentle animals go through cruel treatment in the racing world -- beatings, malnourishment, injury, and confinement are a few examples. Once they are no longer suitable for racing, thousands of greyhounds are killed every year in the most inhumane manner. Those who are fortunate enough to be sent to adoption agencies far outnumber the people who can accept them into loving homes, and a large number are euthanized.

This deplorable treatment needs to stop. Entertainment and profit should never be permitted to take precedence over the welfare of these beautiful creatures. Help end the vicious, unethical cycle of cruelty and death that greyhound racing produces.

Nov 26, 2014 susan koeppl Animals have no defense against such sick treatment. anyone that mistreats an animal should have the same treatment done to them and see how they feel. People really are sick and cruel. God has the final judgment to those sick people.

Nov 23, 2014 Sharon Dembinski Please stop this abuse. Let the people who are racing them go out and get a job and work like most of us. Don't use and abuse the animals. You can stop this. Thank you.
Nov 23, 2014 Susan Brouwer I have seen retired racing dogs. They appear very unhappy and used up. It's very sad that people want to profit from animal abuse like the puppy mills. People suck!!
