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.

Sep 1, 2015 (Name not displayed) We've had a retired racer for eight years and he is truly a gentle, loving dog. These dogs deserve better treatment than they get in the racing world.

Aug 31, 2015 Nora Rock Where money is involved, lots of pain and suffering is involved. Dog racing is not something to enjoy - it is simple, primitive, cruel gambling. Same as horse racing! They overbreed those dogs and simply discard them in 2-3 yrs. Like trash.Enough already!

Aug 29, 2015 Suzanne Enlund We have a GSP and I would love to adopt a greyhound to run the back yard with her. She thinks she is a greyhound. Please discontinue this horrible, so called "sport". These are living creatures and love just as humans do.
Aug 29, 2015 N Susan Kent Please take this letter to heart and really think about how these animals are so cruelly treated. No living creature deserves to be treated in this manner. Please be a hero and help end this unacceptable form of treatment and entertainment. Thank you.
