Florida: Support Historic Ballot Measure to End Greyhound Racing

Florida: Support Historic Ballot Measure to End Greyhound Racing

Update—December 7, 2017: On November 30, Proposal 67, which would ban Greyhound racing in Florida, received unanimous approval from the Florida Constitution Revision Commission. The measure is one step closer to being added to the November 2018 ballot but we may need your help in the near future to ensure its placement, so please stay tuned!

Prop 67 Florida is home to more than half of the country’s Greyhound tracks. Racing Greyhounds endure lives of near perpetual confinement, suffer severe injuries, and often die on dog tracks. On average, a racing dog is killed every three days on Florida tracks.

Florida State Senator Tom Lee recently filed Prop 67, a constitutional amendment that would end Greyhound racing in the state of Florida. If approved by voters, dog racing would be phased out over three years.
 
This is the best chance we have to put an end to this cruel “sport” in the Sunshine State. But for Prop 67 to make it onto the November 2018 ballot for your vote, it first needs approval from a small group of appointed commissioners.
