I 100% support this group for it's efforts to stop inhuman treatment of greyhound dogs. They have made a great impact of dog racing in Massachusetts and in doing so have reduced the cruel treatment of dogs in the racing industry.

GREY2K has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Greyhounds. I am a supporter of their Education Fund which spreads the word through educational outreach and special public events. I, as well as my organization, have learned a great deal about the lives of greyhounds and how they are inhumanely treated in kennels and racetracks nationwide for the pleasure/entertainments of others.

Having been involved in greyhound rescue since 1992 and seeing the abuse and neglect so common in the dog racing industry, I was thrilled to see the formation of GREY2K USA in the late nineties. These dogs need advocates to help end their suffering. I knew long ago that we needed to start educating people about the plight of the racing greyhound. The work GREY2K USA Education Fund has so successfully introduced is proving to be one of the most effective programs in teaching children the importance of kindness to animals. Thanks to GREY2K USA Education Fund, children across the country are learning exploitation of animals is the opposite of compassion.

GREY2KUSA has done more to protect racing greyhounds than any organization devoted to the goal of ending the suffering and killing of greyhounds. All animal lovers would be proud of the accomplishments of this esteemed group. I've been rescuing greyhounds since 1992 and have seen the worst of what the shameful dog racing industry can do to a magnificent creature. Without the efforts of GREY2KUSA and others who support their work, abuse and killing would still be the hideous secret of an industry that has no defense for what they do to make a buck.

I have been a supporter/volunteer for over ten years and a board member for almost one year.

During that time span, the GREY2K USA Education Fund has provided me with material to conduct educational classes at the local Humane Society and schools throughout Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach County. The children learn about these beautiful dogs and the need for adoption through videos and books that have been supplied by the GREY2K USA Education Fund. This is important work that needs to continue.

I am a proud board member of GREY2K USA and a long time supporter of its work to promote the adoption of greyhounds like my dog Molly. I also applaud its efforts to educate the public about the cruelty of dog racing.

As long as greyhound racing continues, these gentle dogs will
suffer. In Iowa, state records showed nearly 200 greyhounds injuries from January 2011 through July 2012. The most common injury was a broken leg and other injuries included sprains, muscle injuries and a broken neck. Additionally, twenty-four greyhounds were euthanized during this 18-month period.

I will keep educating the public through rallies and classroom presentations through the GREY2K USA and its sister organization the GREY2K USA Education Fund.

The GREY2K USA Education Fund has done much to spread the word about the realities of greyhound racing. The Education Fund administers a number of programs that directly benefit children by promoting reading and introducing children to greyhounds. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the Education Fund is under substantial scrutiny and has never had an issue.

There are apparently some reviewers who do not understand that this is a review of the GREY2K USA Education Fund.

This group is just a front for Grey2K. It only exists because their other group does not qualify as a 501(c)3. Their Vice President, Eric Jackson, refused to answer if donations were tax deductible or not. I would steer clear of these folks. Thy are hate filled and take a quarter of their donations as salaries based on their tax return. They also spent a very large part of their donations on "entertainment"....they even have pictures of lavish "retreats" on their website. They use Greyhounds to collect donations and line their pockets.

If they are so worried about animal cruelty and that the Greyhounds are being abused, why don't they call the police on the abusers??????

There are actually groups that have formed to combat this groups lies....that's pretty serious.

They masquerade as a 501c3 but are in fact a 501c4 since they carry both designations. Your donations are not spent on what you believe they are spent on, that is helping greyhounds. They are spent on their 501 c4 and its administration. That is where the money actually goes.

" Keep in mind that Carey's two "non-profits" (Grey2k USA Education Fund / Grey2k USA), rake in several hundred thousand dollars per year. Carey and his wife, Christine Dorchak, take a very large percentage of that money as their personal income. Less than 2% of donations benefit greyhounds. " rxallen. This is how idiotic and sometimes toddler-esque the racing industry's supporters are. ONE: This award honors Grey2KUSA.org's great work and top rating as recognized by a surveyor of ideal nonprofits, and they stupidly think that their hatred for the group will have some effect on this outcome. TWO: Everything plays against them, from countless videos (from the tracks' OWN cameras) and newspaper articles, to the tracks' OWN injury reports, showing Greys being killed because they were no longer raceable. It is a non-defensible position and, as more and more states outlaw racing and/or stop the gov't financing of racing, supporters are becoming more and more desperate in their hatred, both in their lies against Grey2KUSA.oeg, the most effective organization to ever take them on, and of moral people.

The Faustian Bargain
Grey2KUSA.org ACTUALLY gets the numbers from the tracks themselves when they report them to the states, as required by law in some states. So, NO, their numbers are as far from made up as your claims of the innocence of Grey racing is from the truth. As you said (as a racing supporter), when you get your numbers from a skewed source... Do you people EVER read this stuff through before posting it? My word, Swiss cheese can only DREAM of having so many holes! As for GPI, I feel they are a great group. They have wonderful things for one particular Grey who holds the most special place in my heart. However, they are only "neutral" on racing because most tracks REFUSE TO ADOPT OUT TO GROUPS WHO OPENLY OPPOSE GREY RACING! Therefore, no matter how vile they find racing (and they DO find it vile!), GPI agrees to not speak ill of the tracks, because the tracks will then go back to killing the Greys, instead.
A Faustian Bargain, definitely, but it saves thousands of Greys from death. Grey2KUSA.org works VERY well at closing the tracks, Over half of all US tracks have been closed in the last 12 years due to their efforts. Whether they were the prime mover or acted as a supporting role, their results speak for themselves, and have made them (us, really) they most hated group to Greyhound racing's immora; supporters. Just a couple samples here of the clips the racing industry fears you will see, and they come from the racing industry's OWN cameras. The brutality forced upon these noble animals is horrendous, and now, the racing immoralists are REALLY scared, because their continued lies about Grey2KUSA.org finances have been soundly defeated by a natinal organization.
You can follow these links, or search for “Greyhound disaster”, “Greyhound accident”, “Greyhound death”, “Greyhound abuse”, or many others search terms. You can find countless videos recorded by the tracks (for simulcast), so their authenticity cannot be doubted.

Any questions as to who is telling the truth and who is lying to protect their immoral industry? Video evidence provided by the tracks refuting their own claims, or an organization awarded nationally for being best at non-profit work. Hmmm....I wonder who the more trustworthy group is?

I find it very interesting that any time someone has a negative review of this group, Carey2 chimes in that the review is not based on facts, and is part of some sort of "conspiracy" by "dog racing supporters". Keep in mind that Carey's two "non-profits" (Grey2k USA Education Fund / Grey2k USA), rake in several hundred thousand dollars per year. Carey and his wife, Christine Dorchak, take a very large percentage of that money as their personal income. Less than 2% of donations benefit greyhounds. If you want to help greyhounds, donate directly to an adoption group (Greyhounds Pets of America is preferred).

I don't understand how one group can have so little impact on an industry, yet maintain such a hatred for it. I donated to Grey2k to help greyhounds. I later found out that 0% of the money I gave helped a greyhound find a home. Once I researched grey2k's literal message; ending greyhound racing, not nessisarly helping greyhounds, I found that they take credit for many track closures they had nothing to do with, such as the ones in colorado and wisconsin. I'm inpartial to greyhound racing, but I've found that donating to groups that are neutral like myself, or even pro racing, have the dogs in mind more then grey2k, who's only goal seems to be putting people out of work, then putting dogs in households.
