2014.............2015

As the year comes to a close, let's look back on just a few items that were brought to all of our attentions in 20014 regarding “humane advocate protectors”:

1.   A co-founder of a protection organization is involved in unregulated dog racing yet the protection organization seems only interested in destroying para-mutual greyhound racing industry and the racing greyhound as generations have known and loved the breed.

2.   A co-founder of a protection organization has not told the full story regarding an incident used time and again for what is perceived by many to be distortion of the truth and an easy way to garner donations for personal use and a political agenda.


3.  Several “humane advocate protectors" are unwilling to give their support to a safety bill for racing greyhounds which makes it perfectly clear that they have no interest in ensuring racing greyhounds receive the utmost safety and care during their racing careers.
      
I know many of you are tired of the “humane advocate protectors” selective prosecution of a whole industry, we are tired of them lying time and time again and all we ask for is the whole truth about them to be exposed since they will not tell the truth about themselves or the greyhounds!


What interesting truths about “humane advocate protectors" will come to light in 2015? Like they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

Happy Holidays

A recent trip to the track reminded me yet again that the greyhounds we have in our lives become the great pets they are because of those who work and love them day-in-day-out until they retire. These people show up every day, work long hours and always love talking about the greyhounds. 

As your greyhounds unwrap their presents from Santa Dog, remember those individuals who played a part in caring for them before they joined your family. On Christmas Day when many of us will be kicking back relaxing, the trainers will be in the kennels and farms with their greyhounds because caring for these dogs is a 24/7 responsibility whether it is a racing greyhound or a pet greyhound.

A Dare for the Animals

Have you ever wondered why “humane advocate protectors” never ask for an all-inclusive bill regarding dog injuries/deaths? A bill that would require not only the greyhound & horse
tracks, but all animal shelters to report adoption numbers, injury numbers and death numbers?

Could it be due to the fact that “humane advocate protectors” are connected, accept donations from, work with, friend and support the biggest sham in the world – the sham that kills more animals than it adopts!

Dare them to be all inclusive – dare them to write a bill and or support bills that would ban the friends and organizations they work with/support from stealing animals and killing them.

I dare them.

Will they stand up for what is right? Or will they turn a blind eye to stealing and killing?
