GREY2K USA
September 24, 2013

Grey2k is a lobbyist group whose sole mission is to end dog racing and eradicate gambling entertainment options. While this 501c4 is a non profit, it is not a charitable one, nor even one with much ethics. They utilize donations to lobby to eliminate the livlihoods of thousands of dog professionals, wipe out a century of history and thousands of years of careful breeding that make up what the greyhound is today. They pay themselves a salary, take vacations in the name of 'lobbying' and travel the world asking for donations. Even looking at the President's response to some of the honest reviews on here from adoption people, general public, their own donors and, yes.. industry people, you get them actually asking for money to shut down honest reviews. The racing industry has for years had open discussions and offered to open up farms, kennels and operations to Grey2k board members but they refused to accept these invitations. Instead, they delete and ban comments that might have opposing view in their quest for additional dollars in their ongoing donation drive.

I am an adoption person. I have had greyhounds for nearly 20 years as pets. I did come into direct contact with the racing community about 3.5 years ago and realized that there was a lot of good, honest people who love their dogs.

Ways to make it better...

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

I'd like to see more transparency. They often put out "reports." Once published, these reports are the only ones sited as facts. I'd love to see Grey2k quit using copyrighted photos without permission, and when they do use photos, use current ones from the United States to depict their claims on the USA. Mr. Theil will say my review is "fake" but I'm a real person that has taken the time to know all the issues. I don't have a donate to me button & I don't make my living off the greyhoun
