This week, Governor John Hickenlooper signed into law the prohibition of greyhound racing in Colorado. This makes Colorado the 39th state in America to ban greyhound racing!

The bill was drafted by GREY2K president, Christine Dorchak and received overwhelming support from Colorado Voters for Animals, Colorado Citizens for Canine Welfare, the ASPCA, and the Humane Society of the United States. Chief bill sponsor, Representative KC Becker of Boulder, was also essential to the bill’s success.

The suffering of greyhounds in the Centennial State will now become a thing of the past. Greyhounds will no longer be stored in cramped crates, stacked in warehouse-style kennels, unable to stand up or turn around. They will no longer suffer injury or paralysis due to the exhausting, brutal races they were forced to run.  These sweet dogs can now live their lives off the track at last.

Now GREY2K is asking their supporters which state they should focus on next to end greyhound racing. Answer their poll on their website to cast your vote!
