Christine Dorchak, cofounder and president of GREY2K USA recently shared her views about greyhound racing during the taping of Episode 4 of Max A Pooch’s Awesome Animal Advocates that will be airing on the Pet Life Radio network.
GREY2K USA was created in 2001 and according to its website, “It is the largest greyhound protection organization in the United States. It is a non-profit 501(c)4 organization that works to pass stronger greyhound protection laws and end dog racing nationally and internationally. GREY2K USA also promotes rescue, rehoming, and adoption of greyhounds."
During the interview of Ms. Dorchak by Keith Sanderson, host of Max A Pooch’s Awesome Animal Advocates, Dorchak shared why she, her colleagues, staff and supporters fight so hard to end greyhound racing. According to Dorchak, “GREY2K USA was the first organization to successfully outlaw dog racing using the ballot initiative process."
She also related how two dogs, Kelsey and Zoe had incredible influences on her life that ultimately helped lead her to use her law degree to advocate for greyhounds and other animals.
Animal advocate activists will be interested in learning what Dorchak says was, “The strategic change in tactics that provided the means for GREY2K USA to have greyhound racing banned in Massachusetts and elsewhere.”
