Greyhound Lovers to Protest Slots Proposal

SATURDAY, JAN. 26, "SAVE THE DOGS RALLY" TO HIGHLIGHT ABUSE OF GREYHOUNDS; Opponents urge NO vote on Slots Proposal

(Miami, FL) The Miami-Dade Animal Rescue League, area animal lovers and their pets - including many greyhounds - will meet Saturday afternoon outside Flagler Dog Track to protest against Question 3, the Slots Proposal. The proposal on the January 29th ballot would permit slot machines at the dog racing track in Miami-Dade County.

According to the Miami-Dade Animal Rescue League and other opponents in attendance on Saturday, slot machines would prop-up the dying dog racing industry which profits from the mistreatment of greyhound dogs.  Opposition spokesmen will be available; fresh water will be free for all people and dogs.

Meet 1:30pm outside Flagler Dog Track, southeast corner Douglas Road/37th Ave./ NW 7th St.

I had the opportunity to be there and it was truly something special. There were alot of people there, alot of the people driving around the area, would honk their horns, showing their support! It was amazing!. We really do hope that people realize that mistreating animals to gain their money is NOT RIGHT! Who in their right mind would cage a dog for days at a time with little or no food at all. Expect their dog to be in their top shape to win a stupid race, and then when they don't win, they brutally murder them, with soo much hatred, when they never gave the animal a chance to be in their top shape. STOP DOG RACING!! Its NOT RIGHT! I completely support the cause!
