Published by Danny Prater.

It’s an international protest of the cruel Iditarod dog-sled race! Members and supporters of PETA entities around the world are urging one of the deadly event’s last remaining corporate sponsors—Millennium Hotels and Resorts—to spare dogs suffering and cut ties with the Iditarod tout de suite.

From Anchorage to Los Angeles and from Paris to Manila, our message to Millennium Hotels is the same: Do not disturb animals for the sake of human entertainment.

For the Iditarod, dogs are forced to run approximately 1,000 miles while pulling a heavy sled in some of the most grueling conditions on Earth. Up to half of those who start the race don’t finish, leaving the remaining dogs to shoulder an even heavier burden.

The leading cause of death for dogs who don’t survive the Iditarod is aspiration pneumonia, often caused by inhaling their own vomit. More than 150 dogs have died in the race’s history, not counting those who died while languishing on a short chain during the off-season or were killed because they lacked the speed and stamina to make the grade.

Take Action: Help Dogs Now!

Dog deaths in the Iditarod are so routine that the official rules call some of them an “Unpreventable Hazard.” In just the last decade, dogs forced to compete in the event have died from various causes, including asphyxiation, heart attacks, trauma from being struck by a vehicle, freezing to death, and excess fluid in the lungs. Despite this shocking cruelty, Millennium Hotels continues to support the race.

Alaska Airlines, Chrysler, The Coca-Cola Company, Jack Daniel’s, and other major brands ended their Iditarod sponsorships after hearing from PETA supporters. With your help, Millennium Hotels will surely follow suit. It only takes a minute to speak up for dogs using your phone or computer, so what are you waiting for? Get started now:
