Grey2K continues to lie to the public about the treatment of greyhounds during their racing careers in order to rake in the donations for their personal use. They contribute nothing to greyhound adoption.

Well below expectations. Extreme poor money handling. I have been an active volunteer and board member for various greyhound adoption organizations for well over 10 years.

This group does not donate any money to Greyhound Adoption and or the welfare of the dogs. They do not help with placing dogs when tracks close. They keep all donations for themselves and it goes to their pockets. Check out there tax forms, online and open to the public to see where your donated money really goes. All the info they spread is very old and have not ever taken the time to visit with dog owners, visit farms and kennels and get current with the news. Watch where your money is donated to. This group remains a non profit because they take the profits for salaries in their pockets...ha!!!! Check it out please and decide for yourself!

Grey2K USA and it's subsidiary Grey2K USA Education Fund has taken in millions of dollars over the last decade under the guise of helping greyhounds. By "helping" they mean traveling around the country and the world on their donors' dime preaching about how greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane, yet offering no substantial assistance directly to the greyhound community. For instance, recently several Florida tracks closed for the season and approximately 280 hounds needed to be housed, fed and transported to various adoption groups in a few weeks time. Despite widespread publicity, where was Grey2K with their fat wallets helping to buy food and pay haulers? Grey2K would like the general public to believe that mass euthanization still exists in these cases. By helping, it would destroy their illusion. They like to imply that they were responsible for closing over half of the greyhound tracks in the US over the last twelve years, when in fact those tracks closed for many reasons including casino issues, tax issues and the general poor economy. If greyhound loving people want to make a difference, donate to your local adoption agencies! *** In response to Carey Theil’s comment below: You don’t know me and have no idea whether or not I support dog racing. Maybe I just don’t like the way you operate and manipulate the truth to fleece unsuspecting donors out of their hard earned dollars for your salary and operating expenses. The information on your website and “fact sheets” is outdated, exaggerated, intentionally misleading and, as you’re so fond of stating “not factually accurate.” So you made donations to seven non-profit organizations since 2009 – to that I say BIG WHOOP! There are nearly 300 adoption groups in the US and you gave to seven. Wow, I just don’t know what to say about your overwhelming generosity! ***

They are a lobbyist group that does NOTHING directly for greyhound welfare or adoption.

Grey2k is a joke! Its a bunch of people who really have no clue what happens at a track or in a kennel. Talk to someone in the industry to get a true outlook before passing judgement. These people dont help greyhounds in need of help either. You really want to help give your money to local Greyhound Adoption Group or OSU to try to come to a cure for cancer. Furthermore the only reason these comments are still here to read is because G2K cant figure out how to delete or block us "supporters"from speaking the truth. Carey if you have been in racing kennels in the recent past then you would know first hand that you and your sounterparts are doing nothing but lying to the public to get the all mighty $$$$$$

This group does nothing but lie to the public about what they stand for. And what they do stand for is money, money, money, to line their greedy pockets. They take from people who don't know they are being duped into giving money for a cause that isn't there. I and others would like to know how a group can exist legally in America. Lies and deceit is the only thing this poor excuse of a group is about. Sorry Mr. Carey, I'm in greyhound adoption. We educate, and find homes for them when they retire. How many have you placed, or even helped. And we don't lie to get donations like your so called organization does. We've seen the proof of what you do, so you cannot deny it, it's everywhere you don't want the truth to be.

Amazing organization helping all understand what greyhound racing is really about. People have no idea what these dogs endure. People have no idea what amazing animals they are. Grey2k USA fights to make the world a better place for greyhounds all over the world & to help everyone understand why tracks all over the world must be shut done & greyhound racing banned forever.

Fantastic organization that finally ended dog racing in MA. They are committed to exposing and ending the atrocities of racing nationally and internationally.

When I think about GREY 2K USA, the song that comes to mind is "Nobody Does It Better" composed by Marvin Hamlisch with lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager and recorded by Carly Simon. It has been one success after another for Greyhounds because of this organization. So many Greyhounds have been spared injury and death because of GREY 2K USA, and there are thousands of Greyhounds in living rooms tonight that are relaxing with loving human companions instead of living horrible lives and an uncertain fate.
