The CRC is considering a proposal that would phase out greyhound racing and ultimately prohibit it in Florida. The CRC commissioners are taking public comments at their final public hearing this Tuesday in St. Pete and it is essential that we have an enormous attendance. Please join us, HSUS, GREY2K, ASPCA, and many others to speak in support of proposal 67 for the dogs. Members of the public may speak for up to 2 minutes and even a short comment will be very helpful. Don't know what to say? Here are some examples:
- “Please support proposal 67 for the greyhounds!”
- “I urge you to support proposal 67 to phase out greyhound racing in our great state. These gentle dogs deserve better”
