Florida: Historic Ballot Measure to End Greyhound Racing Secures Spot on November Ballot!
Update—April 17, 2018: Great news, advocates! The Constitution Revision Commission voted to pass Prop. 6012 to phase out Greyhound racing, which means it has secured its place on the November ballot. Please stay tuned—we will need your help this fall.
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 the tracks. On average, a racing dog is killed every three days in Florida.
Florida State Senator Tom Lee recently filed Prop 6012, a constitutional amendment that would end Greyhound racing in the state of Florida. If approved by voters, dog racing would be phased out.
This is the best chance we have to put an end to this cruel “sport” in the Sunshine State.
None at this time. Please stay tuned for ways you can help.
