Review for Grey2K USA, Arlington, MA, USA
It seems that some supporters of this group are still under the mistaken impression that they actually save and rehabilitate greyhounds. This couldn't be farther from the truth, and a close look at their own website and literature will reveal that they are solely a political lobbying group with the goal of ending greyhound racing. Absolutely none of their funds go toward adoption efforts. They do nothing to 'save' greyhounds Unless you think that they can be 'saved' by eliminating the reason for them to exist.
The people who are involved in greyhound racing are just regular people, most of whom care deeply for greyhounds and love to work in a field for which they are passionate. As a veterinarian and adopter of ex-racing greyhounds, I have gotten to know many in the industry, and I've seen how much they care about their dogs. As with any group of people, there are some bad apples, who are quickly dealt with when they are discovered. To fight to eliminate the entire racing industry because there are a few bad apples, is the same as fighting to end pet ownership because there are some owners who abuse their pets. This is an animal rights group who would eliminate our right to live with and love pets if it was up to them.

This "review" was posted by a dog racing supporter, as part of an organized campaign by the greyhound racing industry to post negative reviews on this site.
Also, this phony "review" contains inaccurate information. For example, the notion that GREY2K USA "would eliminate our right to live with and love pets" is complete nonsense. GREY2K USA has a very specific mission: to pass greyhound protection laws, phase out dog racing and promote greyhound adoption. We have no position on any other issue. Similarly, the claim that GREY2K USA does not support greyhound adoption is false. In reality, we support adoption in many ways. We make direct financial contributions to adoption groups, we give greyhound adoption referrals, and we encourage our supporters to adopt. I am also personally a greyhound adopter.
