It's been awhile since we've protested on behalf of the Greyhounds and now is the time, advocates! Please join us for a quick protest before the daily dog race at 12:30pm. The Greyhounds are in desperate need of positive attention to get this inhumane practice put to a halt. 8 of the 89 Greyhounds euthanized in the state of Florida over the past year were regular racers at the Sarasota Kennel Club.
The protest will be held at the corner of Bradenton Road and University Parkway, right at the entrance of the club. Please park across the street, not in the Club's lot. The nice people with Florida Voices for Animals meet up group will be bringing some signs for use. If you're planning to make your own some good sign examples include: Greyhounds are Dying to Entertain You, End Greyhound Racing, Kill Racing Not Greyhounds, Racing to Their Death.
