Florida: Support Historic Ballot Measure to End Greyhound Racing
Update—March 20, 2018: Great news, advocates! The Florida Constitution Revision Commission voted 18-14 in favor of Prop. 67 to ban Greyhound racing in Florida. Thank you to everyone who spoke up on behalf of long-suffering Greyhounds. The measure is headed to the CRC Style and Drafting Committee, and after that committee it will require a 2/3 vote of the CRC before it can be placed on the November 2018 ballot. If you haven't already, please take the action steps below.
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 67, 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.
Please place a quick, polite phone call to the Commissioners at (850) 717-9550 and tell them that you are a Florida resident and that you support Proposal 67 to phase out Greyhound racing.
