Greyhound Demo at Derby Lane - Be Their Voice!

As long as Florida Dog tracks abuse and exploit greyhounds, animal activists will stand up and be a voice for these gentle dogs who are killed by the thousands each year. We will be holding a peaceful demonstration at Derby Lane before the Saturday morning races to call attention to this barbaric industry.

Date: Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Time: 11am to 1pm

Location: Derby Lane, 10490 Gandy Blvd, St. Petersburg, FL. 33702

** Signs and banners will be provided (all you need to do is just show up!). We'll also have drinking water available. Notes: This is a peaceful demo, so please be a power of example for the dogs. Do not respond to any heckling from guests or other groups. Remember it is about them, not us. :) We hope to get enough activists to be on BOTH SIDES of Gandy Blvd. We cannot block the roads or the sidewalk, and are not allowed on the median for safety reasons.

Also, please stay away from the Derby Lane property. It is private and they will arrest anyone that ventures there.

Parking details: Please park in a public area. Avoid any private parking lots since most of these businesses will tow.

Hope to see you all there!!!

Please leave your companion animals at home for safety reasons.

    Also, the private businesses in that area have towing signs, so please stay away from their parking lots to avoid getting towed.

    We usually park across the street from the track or down that street.

    Hi Denise. I was in the area today, and didn't see much in the way of public parking. Any suggestions? I wonder if the Goodwill next door would be ok.
