Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Grey2K is the only organization that devotes everything they got in changing legislature in helping eradicate a horrible and cruel industry. They have been ridiculed for not rescuing greyhounds. They are the only organization that has been able to make a difference in closing these profit making institutions called race tracks that are one of the most despicable cruel and inhumane organizations out there. True, they don't do adoptions but we have some of the best and wonderful adoption organizations doing this.
They are unique and the only organization that rescues greyhounds by fighting the tracks, breeders, owners, and making the public aware of what goes on and they change legislations. This is why we are seeing less and less tracks due to Grey2K. Thank you Grey2K without you we would not have gotten rid of some of the tracks. Hopefully you will get rid of all of them. and thank you to all the rescues that take in the greyhounds and find homes for them.

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

I would employ more and more people to help them with this venture and If I was financially able I would help there also.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

There is no doubt that when animals are used for exploitation to make money for humans there is ALWAYS abuse. Whether it be dog racing, horse racing, dog fighting, etc., etc. As far as the greyhounds, you have to be pretty stupid not to believe they are abused. From the time they are born to the time they stop making money at the track they are abused. Where do all the slow puppies go and where do all the losers go??? There are not enough rescue groups to save them all. However, with the help of Rescue groups that adopt out dogs and save them from the track to organizations like Grey2K who educate and try to abolish the tracks, both have different ways of helping the dogs. Grey2K is no in the business of finding homes for the greyhounds, like the groups who do find homes for the ones that can be saved. Grey2K is a tremendous help in educating the public on how badly these dogs endure a horrible life and most of all they try to get the tracks closed down. They do one part of greyhound rescue and the adopters do another. You need both. You can't have one without the other. Most rescue organizations are too busy trying to save the dogs before the tracks kill the dogs and don't have time trying to close down tracks or change legislation, that where Grey2K comes in. I thank all of you, the rescue groups who save the dogs and find homes for them and Grey2K for trying to rid our country of dog racing. Keep up the good work. Helene Jones
