Help bring an end to Greyhound racing in Florida

 

 

This November we will have an historic opportunity to help thousands of dogs. If citizens vote Yes on Amendment 13, commercial dog racing will be phased out by 2020. Today, we're asking you to help kick off the campaign.

Right now, thousands of Greyhounds are bred annually—many more than are needed to race—in an attempt to create the fastest dogs. These social dogs are forced to spend most of their time alone, confined in warehouse-style kennels with rows of double-stacked cages for 20 to 23 hours a day.

"Many racing dogs suffer injuries while racing, and according to state records, a racing greyhound dies every three days on a Florida track."  - Humane Society of the United States

Join us at the LCHS office for a grassroots meeting on Thursday, July 26 at 6:00pm. We'll be welcoming guest speakers from HSUS to kick off the Protect Dogs—Yes on 13 campaign. Everyone who attends will receive campaign flyers, as well as information on how to effectively give the dogs a voice.

Please RSVP right away for this important event! An RSVP in advance is mandatory for this meeting. It takes just 30 seconds so make sure to RSVP on this link!
