Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Grey2K does nothing to help the breed and as an organization they will destroy a healthy and vibrant breed of dog. They have never worked in a kennel nor on a farm and their experience in not firsthand.

Grey2K's connections to PETA, the HSUS and ALF are well known, but not known by the people that donate to them.

This is a sham "review" by a dog racing supporter, placed here as part of an orchestrated campaign to post negative comments. Every factual statement is false, except for the comment that we have worked with the Humane Society of the United States. That's true, just as we have worked with the ASPCA and every major animal protection group. They collaborate with us because we're effective.

Grey2K does nothing for the greyhounds. Grey2K is against the Smith Greyhound Safety Bill in Florida. This bill would require injury reporting, have the tracks install a breakaway lure and cover the live rail to help stop greyhounds from getting electrocuted.

Now grey2K will come on here tell you that the track at Palm Beach has installed the covering on the rail and a dog still got electrocuted there and that is true. However, instead of donating money to try and find a way to cover the rail in a spot that was still exposed, Grey2K wants to leave the whole rail exposed so anywhere on the track that a dog or person might come in contact with the rail will get electrocuted.

When I said person I wasn't kidding. A worker at the Woodlands track in Kansas dropped a tool on the other side of the rail and as he reached over he touched the live part of the rail and was electrocuted.

Grey2K may tell you they didn't know about the worker, but they do because I have mentioned it before on forums they read.

So don't you have to wonder why a group that tells you they are all about protecting the greyhounds, doesn't?

As a follow up to Carey's post

Carey that isn't what you said in this article.

But executive director Carey Theil of the Boston-based non-profit Grey2K USA, promoting greyhound protection, says the Greyhound Safety Act Cory is backing is not the way to go. Theil's organization supports Senate Bill 2 and greyhound injury reporting in general.

It's like you supported Rep. Young's bill that was for expanded gambling and casinos in Florida, but in Massachusetts you are aligned with Repeal the Casino Deal.

This "review" was posted by a well-known greyhound breeder, as part of an organized campaign to lower our review score on GreatNonprofits. His claim that oppose the Florida "Greyhound Safety Act" is nonsense. This measure was filed this year by Senator Chris Smith and Representative Kevin Rader. Here is the thank you note that Representative Rader sent GREY2K USA a few weeks ago, thanking us for our support of his bill: http://grey2kusa.org/pdf/Rep.%20Rader%20Version1.pdf

Grey2k takes the bad and makes it the norm. While bad people exist in every segment of society they are not the norm.

Grey2K preys on your emotions to get donations, donations that do nothing to help greyhound adoption.

Don't be fooled by them, check them out and you will see.

This is one of several fake "reviews" that were posted shortly after September 20, 2013, as part of an organized campaign by greyhound breeders to drive down our review score on this website. Proof of this can be found at http://www.grey2kusa.org/pdf/Greyhound_Breeders_Post_Phony_Reviews.pdf.
