Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Just to be clear, this is not a "fake" review. I know more about greyhounds and greyhound racing than Carey Theil or Christine Dorchak. And I have an honest opinion about Grey2k USA.

They are animal rights extremists, much like PETA and ALF (Animal Liberation Front). For Dorchak and Theil, it's not about specific conditions, it's about humans profiting from animals. Dorchak and Theil are vegans. They are supported by PETA, ALF and the HSUS. They try to hide behind their extremist views by using misleading propaganda, negative connotations and outright lies about greyhound racing.

They lie about the size of the crates and condition of the kennels. They lie about the amount of time greyhounds spend in the kennel. They withhold data about racing injuries. Data that would prove that greyhound racing is very safe.

Why all the lies and propaganda? Because if they simply said that "greyhound racing is bad because people are profiting from animals", they wouldn't get the financial support from the public.

Grey2k USA uses deceptive practices to slander hard working Americans in the greyhound community.

Once again, Carey and his wife caught in a web of lies. Here a link to the ALF Hall of Fame induction for Christine Dorchak:

Carey searches the internet and finds a link describing the "minimum allowable size" for a greyhound crate. He just assumes that all greyhounds are housed in crates of that size. Someone who really wants to find the truth would visit a greyhound kennel and determine if they are in size appropriate crates. And you would find that they certainly are. Visit Grey2k Deception on Facebook for photos of the actual crates used.

Carey, if you don't withhold data from your injury reporting statistics, then how many races and starts were there during the 5 1/2 year reporting period for injures at Wheeling and Tri-State? These numbers are required to determine the possibility of an injury occurring.

As stated, Carey and his wife aren't really interested in the truth. They are interested in generating income to support their lifestyle.

Carey, you seem a little quiet. Care to answer my questions, or are you afraid of a little debate?

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only positive change to Grey2k would be to revoke their 501(c)4 status.

As I have said previously, this "review" was posted by an individual who profits from the greyhound racing industry, and spends hours every day trying to defame GREY2K USA on the internet.

There are so many false claims in his phony "review" that it's hard to know where to begin. 1. The notion that GREY2K USA is supported the "Animal Liberation Front" is complete nonsense. 2. The claim that we "lie" about dog track cage sizes and conditions is false. We report the facts, straight from the industry itself and state records. 3. The notion that we "withold data about racing injuries" that would "prove that greyhound racing is very safe" is laughable. These are all lies that Robert Gross and a handful of others tell about GREY2K USA, because they are angry that dog racing is dying and we are having an impact.

 

Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have been involved in the greyhound racing community since the early 1980's. Grey2k USA relies on lies and misinformation to make people think that greyhound racing is inhumane. They lead people to believe that they are involved with greyhound adoption, which they are not. They actively troll news articles related to greyhounds and attack those who do not support their "cause". No money donated to Grey2k USA helps greyhounds. All money donated to Grey2k USA is allocated to salaries and "miscellaneous expenses".

This review was posted by a dog racing supporter and is not factually accurate. GREY2K USA supports greyhound adoption in several ways. Specifically, we make adoption referrals to adoption groups across the country, we directly contribute to local adoption organizations,and we promote greyhound adoption on an ongoing basis. Regarding humane problems in the dog racing industry, we use information that is recent, from credible sources like mainstream news reports and state records, and specific to local tracks. We simply provide the public with accurate data regarding this industry, and ask them to make a humane choice. All of our fact sheets and policy reports are on line here: http://www.grey2kusa.org/about/fact_sheets.html Finally, GREY2K USA does have a full-time staff because it would otherwise be impossible to function as an effective national, non-profit organization aimed at passing laws. Our staff is highly skilled, and earns modest wages. We use our resources efficiently. We have made a lot of progress, and that is why so many greyhound breeders are angry about our work.
