GREY2K USA’s tireless dedication to put an end to dog racing throughout the United States and abroad should not go unnoticed. GREY2K USA’s various educational efforts have helped bring countless numbers of innocent racing greyhounds from their dismal lives on race tracks, where they are just a commodity, off the track and into adoption groups. The adoption groups are then able to place the dogs into forever homes where they can be cared for by loving adopters. My hat is off to anyone who helps to spread the word about the plight of racing greyhounds with the ultimate goal of ending dog racing. GREY2K USA has played a big role in doing just that! Over the years, Christine Dorchak has always been more than willing to provide GREY2K USA educational materials to the adoption groups I have been affiliated with. I learned recently that GREY2K USA provided funding to adoption groups for greyhounds transitioning from the now defunct race track in Arizona into adoption groups. On behalf of the greyhounds…Thank you GREY2K USA!!! Keep up the good work!
Grey2K USA's Education Fund has helped change minds across the state of Florida. Greyhound racing has a long history in the state and it is not uncommon to find individuals and families that hold dear the practice as a favorite pastime. But the tide has been changing thanks very much in part to the Education Fund's work to expose the abuses that occur at these tracks and reach the communities where these tracks still operate.
Grey2K USA's Education Fund wisely uses resources to organize support and spread awareness throughout the state. Their High Stakes report was a game changer - putting the horrors of greyhound racing into easily consumable facts and figures, making every greyhound lover an effective greyhound advocate.
I have been aware of the GREY 2K USA organization for many years and donate to this honorable, very trustworthy organization whenever I can.
They are truly amazing in the work that they do; helping innocent greyhounds find freedom and happie , healthier lives after the horrible time the dogs endured while being forced to race at the greyhound tracks that still exist.
I am so amazed at the work the staff has done in helping to terminate greyhound racing in many states, and their mission to keep the fight up to continue to help these innocent animals and bring them to safety.
The Grey 2k USA Education Fund is a great fund where students can learn about greyhounds and how important it is to treat them with kindness, as they would treat their own dog or animal at home, whatever breed.
This positive Fund helps educate the youth of today to try to help prevent greyhound dog racing from occurring in future generations, and I think that message of reaching out to young people is very important.
I applaud Grey2kUSA for making this effort.
I think GREY 2K USA is doing a great job and is one of the most comprehensive, honest, and conscientious non-profits I have ever known. I am a BIG fan!
They are just wonderful and are doing an outstanding job. Keep up the good work.
We have been supporting the GREY2K USA team for several years both with personal donations and through our business. The GREY2K USA team has worked relentlessly to save living animals from the cruelty of humans. They also help to educate children so that this madness of using animals to make $ stops. I highly recommend that everyone should support GREY2k USA until ALL dog racing ends.
GREY2K USA does not succumb to the harsh attacks from the dog racing industry.
GREY2K USA is responsible both fiscally and humanly.
We've supported GREY2K USA for over two years now and have seen remarkable progress by Christine Dorchak and her team's non-stop, dedicated and diligent work. We support GREY2K USA both with fundraising, our personal monies and by signing the petitions and support she needs to bring the laws to fruition to protect living beings.
Rarely do you find a non-profit that is so transparent with the monies spent and most rare of all, the dedicated work devoting time and money directly to the cause. If more people cared as much as the GREY2K USA team our world would be a kinder place.
I am thankful for GREY2K USA and the wonderful work they do to help end the abuse and suffering of greyhounds.
This nonprofit works incredibly effective to end the suffering of greyhounds. Through public education and hands-on experience with rescued greyhounds they ensure that the community understands the awful treatment and disrespect these gentle dogs suffer in commercial dog racing.
GREY2K USA consistently exceeds expectations with their non profit Education Fund.
They are creative in their approach to reach out and educate the community (and world) regarding the inhumanity of greyhound racing around the globe. We are so lucky to have this organization creating the awareness that is needed on this subject. Many thanks for all they do. The world is a better place because of them!
Because of the Grey2K USA Education Fund, I have supplies which I use to help educate school age children in South Florida about the need to adopt the racing greyhounds when their racing life is over. I give the children a "Pele's Forever Home" book which is a sweet story about an ex-racer finding his forever home. The distribution of these books has resulted in the adoption of many greyhounds.
Thank you GREY2K USA Education Fund for making this possible.
I’m the Florida Director for GREY2K USA. Over the years while tabling and organizing rallies in front of the 12 tracks in Florida, I have come in contact with many people who have experienced behind the scenes activities that are part of the racing industry. For example, one vet tech wrote to me prior to a rally, “Hi! My name is ----- , and I am coming to that protest come hell or high water! It’s funny, I JUST posted something on my Facebook about how horrible racing is. See, I am a vet tech at a local animal hospital where we work with the track dogs (all the different kennels). We bath, vaccinate, do blood work & dentals, sterilize and repair broken legs on the greyhounds that are blessed enough to have a chance at a real life. We have to put soooo many beautiful, sweet greyhounds to sleep for nothing more than broken hocks that the kennel owners don't feel that it's worthwhile enough to pay for fixing. And then the tragic ones that come in right off the track terribly suffering from heatstroke that we euthanize- These things just shouldn't happen! I can't stand to look another beautiful greyhound in the eyes as it licks my face as we're injecting the euthanasia solution into its vein. All over a snapped hock that no one would pay to have repaired. Let's start by telling everyone what a tragedy racing is!!!”
At this time, we do not know how many of the racing greyhounds are suffering injuries in Florida since Florida is one of two states out of the seven racing states that does not have injury reporting. I will proudly work with GREY2K USA to get injury reporting on the books in Florida. GREY2K USA is a well-run organization dedicated to the protection of the racing greyhounds worldwide.
Thanks for everything you do to help greyhounds. We are proud to partner with you!
The GREY2K USA Education Fund has been a constant support for our greyhound adoption group, FINGER LAKES ADOPT A GREY(FLAAG). They have provided materials for us to go to libraries for presentations to children as well as adults. Every summer FLAAG is a guest lecturer at the Tompkins County SPCA. GREY 2K USA Education Fund supplies us with written material and "goodies" for the day campers(approx. 100 children). They have been a "greyt" resource for our group and provides us with a sounding board in regards to banning greyhound racing. FLAAG is proud to be associated with this wonderful group!
The help the Grey2K USA Education fund provided when Tucson Greyhound Park in Arizona closed was a god send. There are many happy hounds tonight as a result. Great Work!
