The Faustian Bargain
Grey2KUSA.org ACTUALLY gets the numbers from the tracks themselves when they report them to the states, as required by law in some states. So, NO, their numbers are as far from made up as your claims of the innocence of Grey racing is from the truth. As you said (as a racing supporter), when you get your numbers from a skewed source... Do you people EVER read this stuff through before posting it? My word, Swiss cheese can only DREAM of having so many holes! As for GPI, I feel they are a great group. They have wonderful things for one particular Grey who holds the most special place in my heart. However, they are only "neutral" on racing because most tracks REFUSE TO ADOPT OUT TO GROUPS WHO OPENLY OPPOSE GREY RACING! Therefore, no matter how vile they find racing (and they DO find it vile!), GPI agrees to not speak ill of the tracks, because the tracks will then go back to killing the Greys, instead.
A Faustian Bargain, definitely, but it saves thousands of Greys from death. Grey2KUSA.org works VERY well at closing the tracks, Over half of all US tracks have been closed in the last 12 years due to their efforts. Whether they were the prime mover or acted as a supporting role, their results speak for themselves, and have made them (us, really) they most hated group to Greyhound racing's immora; supporters. Just a couple samples here of the clips the racing industry fears you will see, and they come from the racing industry's OWN cameras. The brutality forced upon these noble animals is horrendous, and now, the racing immoralists are REALLY scared, because their continued lies about Grey2KUSA.org finances have been soundly defeated by a natinal organization.
You can follow these links, or search for “Greyhound disaster”, “Greyhound accident”, “Greyhound death”, “Greyhound abuse”, or many others search terms. You can find countless videos recorded by the tracks (for simulcast), so their authenticity cannot be doubted.

Any questions as to who is telling the truth and who is lying to protect their immoral industry? Video evidence provided by the tracks refuting their own claims, or an organization awarded nationally for being best at non-profit work. Hmmm....I wonder who the more trustworthy group is?
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
