Call To Action

an exhortation or stimulus to do something in order to achieve an aim or deal with a problem

Yes, we're ready. Yes, we're prepared. And yes, we DO have a plan. And yes - that plan WILL include you!

On Tuesday September 17, 2019, Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, called for West Virginia to stop subsidizing greyhound racing. Why? He doesn't care about the greyhounds, the livelihoods of over 1,700 employees that are part of this industry, the secondary and tertiary businesses, and community services that benefit from greyhound racing. All he cares about is the supposed $15 million. 

As in 2017, we will be calling on you - the thousands of industry professionals and greyhound community members - to stand united to #KeepWVRacing. Right now your #KeepWVRacing Team has assembled our team of lobbyists and are establishing our objectives. We will be looking for your help - so stay tuned! We are in this for the marathon - not the 330y sprint.

Governor Jim Justice had our paw in 2017 when he vetoed the bill in ceremony stating, "If we get rid of greyhound racing, it will mean job losses and fewer people coming to West Virginia. Eliminating support for the greyhounds is a job killer, and I can't sign it. The last thing we need to do is drive more people out of West Virginia. We can't turn our back on communities like Wheeling that benefit from dog racing."

We thank all the adoption groups throughout North  America that support greyhound racing in West Virginia!
