GREY2K USA
September 23, 2013

Christine Dorchak and her team are doing sterling work. I am nobody special, just another greyhound lover who abhors the way in which these majestic, faithful, beautiful creatures are treated during their lives as racing machines. They are kept in cages and are often muzzled, only allowed out for training and racing. They have feelings, they have emotions, they have nerve endings and they DO NOT DESERVE TO LIVE THIS PATHETIC LIFE. They make wonderful pets, they are gentle, non aggressive dogs and my autistic son adores our three 'girls'. Do not listen to those smears against Christine and the GREY2K USA team, they are usually breeders or trainers who don't want the world to know just how awful these dogs' lives are. Caged, muzzled, no freedom, no affection, the bare minimum food and some don't even have water bowls because they keep spilling the contents. What a life, what a dreadful, awful, disgusting life. Go Christine! Go GREY2K USA, keep fighting and don't let the b******s grind you down! You have a lot of supporters who know that what you are doing is RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT and what they are doing is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG..........!

Ways to make it better...

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

Win the lottery and give them as much money as I could to make sure they keep up the wonderful work they are doing. They are educating the world about the appalling way in which these beautiful animals are kept. It's wrong and it HAS TO STOP!

GREY2K USA Education Fund
November 6, 2012

Over the past 15 years, I have adopted four ex racing greyhounds. They are gentle, faithful, loving creatures and all they ask from life is a loving home, good food, walks and a comfortable bed. They are not demanding dogs, they rarely bark and they are accepting of any treatment meted out to them. This makes them ideal for the hell that is the life of the racing dog. They are fed the bare minimum and often sleep in cages, stacked two high. It is a miserable life. They are brought out for training and for racing and that's it. No affection, no cuddles and I've even heard of some trainers who remove the water bowls if the dogs knock them over more than once. What sort of life is this? These dogs make wonderful pets and my son, who is on the autistic spectrum, adores our current 'girls', Amber, Rosie and Cleopatra. They have brought a whole new dimension into our lives and I believe Christine and all at GREY2K USA deserve recognition and support. They do sterling work, bringing to people's attention the plight of the racing greyhound, working to get the whole hideous so called 'sport' banned, both in the US and in the UK. Go go go GREY2K USA, go go go Christine, you are doing wonderful work and I am a huge fan of yours!
