Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization is bogus on so many levels. Grey2K rakes in thousands under the pretense of helping poor abused greyhounds. Firstly, the greyhound racing industry is tightly regulated, greyhounds are well taken care of and I have seen the lies and deceit that this organization stoops to advance its primary goal--which is separating you from the cash in your pocket. Not one solitary dime goes to helping re home ex racing greyhounds. If people want to help dogs in need, I strongly suggest giving to your local animal shelter. That is truly a worthy cause and those animals ARE often abused and neglected.

This "reviewer" is a supporter of the commercial dog racing industry, and is posting here as part of an orchestrated campaign to drive our review score down. This isn't a new tactic, and the industry has done it previously, both on this site and on others. We have a very clear mission: to pass greyhound protection laws, phase out dog racing and promote greyhound adoption. We have already achieved a tremendous amount of progress, and are an efficient non-profit organization. We do make direct contributions to greyhound adoption groups. Between GREY2K USA and the GREY2K USA Education Fund, we have given more than $34,000 to non-profit greyhound adoption organizations since 2009. We also maintain a national listing of greyhound adoption organizations, and regularly gives adoption referrals.


Review for GREY2K USA Worldwide, Arlington, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

It is a never ending source of wonder to me how this organization (Grey2K) can so easily manipulate unknowing people through mass indoctrination of what is often outright lies and self serving propaganda. As a person involved in greyhounds and adoption for over two decades, I have seen first hand hundreds of greyhounds that have walked through our doors and on to new homes. They come in as beautiful racing machines and owing to the quality of care and level of professional training, we can adopt them out to new homes with little fostering.

I am greatly saddened to see so many lies and misinformation touted as fact by people who really should know better. I have visions of grey2k advocates wearing white pointed hats and banishing torches, because that is exactly what they are doing. And they aren't doing a damn thing to help those of us who work diligently to adopt out these wonderful canines.

And as a response to the accustions posted by carey2 below, I find it typical of their conduct. Anyone who opposes them is an enemy and labeled as such.

and btw, you may remember carey2, our adoption agency refused your donation of $500, and the strings you wanted to attach. The end of greyhound racing would spell the end of this noble breed of dog. A fact you have not mentioned to your followers . . .not surprised.

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

expose it for the fraud that it is and donate 100% of money and assets to bona fide greyhound adoption agencies.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

A lot

Will you recommend this organization to others?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Also, the claim that GREY2K USA does not support greyhound adoption is completely false. We support adoption in many ways. We make direct contributions to adoption groups across the country, we give adoption referrals on an ongoing basis, and we encourage all of our supporters to adopt.
