On average, over 1000 dogs live in warehouse style kennels at each racetrack.
Welcome Christine Dorcak to the vegattorney.com website! Christine is an attorney working to pass laws to protect greyhounds and end dog racing nationwide. Formed in March of 2001, GREY2K USA is a national non-profit organization dedicated to passing stronger greyhound protection laws and ending the cruelty of dog racing. To this end, we work nationwide to fight for greyhounds in state legislatures, at the ballot box, and in the courts. On the international level, we support the work of other advocates across the globe. And boy are they doing a great job ending the cruel and inhumane act of Greyhound racing! GREY2K USA was the first organization to successfully outlaw dog racing using the ballot initiative process. In November 2008, the citizens of Massachusetts chose compassion over cruelty and voted 56%-44% to close down Raynham and Wonderland Greyhound Parks. Since our formation, twenty-six dog tracks have closed for live racing all across the country, and the number of states with dog racing has been cut in half.
