“A new, voter-approved amendment banning greyhound racing in Florida leaves the future of thousands of greyhounds up in the air.”
“With more than 5.3 million votes, Amendment 13 overwhelmingly passed on Tuesday with 69% approval. The new legislation will outlaw the popular betting sport in the state by Dec. 31, 2020, putting 11 racetracks in the state out of business.”
“Greyhound advocacy groups in Florida that supported the amendment, including Friends of Greyhounds and Elite Greyhound Adoptions South Florida. have posted resources for anyone interested in rescuing and adopting dogs involved in track racing.”
Florida does something right for once. Pssst cat lovers, Greyhounds are more like cats than dogs. Just say’n.
