Review for Grey2k Usa Education Fund, Arlington, MA, USA
You are so tiresome, Carey2, Carey2 is incorrect. The comment made to my review is not true. I am not part of the racing community. I only do retired racing adoption. We are a small group and run on a shoestring budget. We actually help the dogs. We do not get paid. In fact, we spend much of our own money directly to benefit the greyhounds. What I said is true. I asked for a grant to help with some medical expenses for our greyhounds in fostering. It is true I as immediately 'defriended' by Grey2k for asking for help and asking questions. Carey2 is copy & pasting the same comment to everyone who disagrees with him without checking the facts (as usual). I have a very low tolerance for people who say they are helping greyhounds and then pay themselves huge salaries and take lavish trips abroad. From my original post: I do adoption for retired racing greyhounds. GREY2K does nothing to help any of the organizations that actually deal with the greyhounds. The donations they get never go for the dogs. They pay themselves high salaries and take lavish trips, even trips abroad while the retired racing adoption organizations beg for money to care for the dogs. Grey2k does not deserve accolades. They ban from posting comments anyone who asks for help for the greyhounds or calls into question their incorrect information.

This "review" was posted by someone in the dog racing industry, 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. Finally, the information we provide on commercial greyhound racing is recent, local, and from credible sources such as mainstream news reports and state records.
In posting this review, "Sharyn" was responding to a request by dog race promoters to post false negative reviews here. In part, this request from dog race promoters included the statement that "We need to flood it!!" This is not a genuine review, it is part of a cynical, organized campaign by people who have a direct financial interest in the continuation of commercial greyhound racing.
