With Florida greyhounds crossing the finish line on New Year’s Eve, it’s time to celebrate the most energetic period ever in the fight to end dog racing! Over the last several years, a total of 43 American dog tracks have been closed down, tens of thousands of greyhounds saved from cruelty and death, and we have witnessed an explosion of community growth.
Today, we are happy to report that the former Florida dog tracks are already being redeveloped for better purposes. The Sarasota Kennel Club property will soon be home to a Circle K Super Store, a car wash and open space.
In Orlando, the track is under contract for mixed use housing and retail outlets.
The Naples track is coming down for restaurants and more. The Palm Beach Kennel Club, which raced until the end, has promised to provide jobs to its 500 employees as part of its own redevelopment plan. Owner Pat Rooney speaks of a "new era" at his old dog track.
To celebrate this marvelous progress and to help raise needed funds for our continuing fight, we invite you to participate in our new
Greyhound Love auction.
Finally, we are happy to include multiple greyhound-themed
Be sure to look for the heart-themed items here and throughout out our Greyhound Love auction.
and make this the happiest Valentine’s Day ever for you and your special someone.
