New Day for Dogs in New Hampshire

Written by PETA | April 16, 2010


Break out your victory dance because lawmakers in New Hampshire have voted to ban dog racing! Once the Governor signs the bill into law greyhounds in the Granite State will be spared the stone-cold cruelty of broken legs, long hours in cramped kennels, heatstroke, and heart attacks and of being abandoned, starved, shot, or sold to laboratories when they are no longer able to run.

BTW—the word on the street is that Rhode Island will soon follow suit. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, please urge the remaining states that still allow greyhounds to be exploited for profit and amusement to ditch dog racing.

    This is such great news! GREY2K USA sent an alert last week with details about this victory and an update on what’s happening in Rhode Island. You can read it here http://www.grey2kusa.orgeNEWSG2K041510Email.html. They also have lots of great information about what’s happening in other racing states like RI FL KS IA WV etc. You can find it on their web site at http://www.grey2kusa.orgactionstate.html or http://www.grey2kusa.orgactionalerts.html!

    It is high time that greyhound racing is declining one after the other closing down giving the greyhounds that second chance of life.It is also high time that we remember how much these nobel sighthounds have suffered the athletes that were never apriciated for their performance as their human counterparts. Let us remember that. Let us remember the greyhounds when we are in need of a new familymember and secondly let us treat them like the royalty they are.This is also time to remind those who just keep their dogs outside with little or no socialisation. Give your dogs the space they are entitled too namely familymembers not just something you put outside. Let them be with the family inside the house they deserve as much.Unchain the chained dogs bring them in from the streets do not let them roam free without love or care give them a second chance too.Most sincerly Lisbeth Mnsted Larsen Greyhound Action Denmark.

    I am delighted to see greyhounds getting press here. These gentle creatures run under animal welfare radar. But I would like to note that the hard work of taking down the greyhound racing industry has been done by GREY2K USA.

    Next up is Mike Tyson and pidgeon racing.

    Love that picture of that happy looking greyhound but his teeth are pretty tarter covered. His teeth need to be brushed. I brush my dog’s teeth at least once a week with a special toothpaste made for dogs and he loves it! He doesn’t mind the teeth brushing since he loves the poultry flavor. Never use human toothpaste on a dog. It can upset their stomach. And if you can’t get a dog toothbrush you can probably use a human one. But the toothpaste must be made for dogs!

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again PLEASE consider adopting a retired racing Greyhound. These dogs deserve forever homes where they can sleep all day in comfort and have someone who can love them sincerely.
