Protect Greyhounds On Amendment 13 in Florida
Greyhound, Dog

History awaits the Greyhounds this fall. On Election Day 2018,
the voters of Florida will have an opportunity to turn back the
hands of time and end dog racing in its most established state. As
many as 8,000 lucky Greyhounds stand to receive the second chance
they deserve, released from nearly 100 years of exploitation and
cruelty.

The first recognized commercial Greyhound racetrack in the world
was opened in 1919 in Emeryville, California. The Blue Star
Amusement Park featured a new invention called the mechanical lure.
Created by Owen Patrick Smith, the device was intended to offer a
more humane alternative to the traditional use of live rabbits in
field coursing.
