Review for GREY2K USA Education Fund, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have worked in greyhound adoption since 1991. I worked as an individual and also with groups, with trainers, and with kennels. During that time, I have seen Grey2K start up and write up lies about what they do, in order to gain people's sympathy (and money) for their own gain. They spend very little toward helping adoption groups; in fact, they have actually hindered greyhound adoption at times. They are also actively involved in lobbying in several states, using money that many people think 'goes to help the dogs' when in reality it goes to help those who operate it. They are NOT compassionate but abusers of sympathetic people. They have used pictures that are very outdated, and some have been faked. You can look at Guidestar to see what kind of percentages of their money goes to help greyhound groups and what else the money is used for. It is NOT an acceptable percentage to be considered a charitable non-profit organization when the 'owners' of Grey2K make money in excess of 300,000.

This "review" was posted by a dog racing supporter, and is not factually accurate. For example, the GREY2K USA Education Fund is an all-volunteer organization. Also, the claim that we don't support greyhound adoption is false. In reality, we support greyhound adoption in many ways. We make direct donations to local adoption groups, we give adoption referrals to the public and our supporters, and we promote greyhound adoption.
