Idaho Greyhound Rescue Needs Our Help


This group got Greyhound racing ended forever in their state in 1996.
But at that time they forgot to include simulcast greyhound racing. So the
simulcast would continue for 4 yrs before they could try to ban it. The governor
who agreed to outlaw racing is no longer in office & they are dealing with a
new one. The horse racing folks have introduced bill SB1115 to continue the
simulcasting. They have worked very hard to stop this bill from passing, but it
has passed House state affairs. Now it rests with the governor. You are all
aware the abuse these greyhounds suffer. 30,000 still die each & every year.
Hundreds are dragged into research labs, their cries unheard. Thousands more
bred each year to take their place. Please take a moment to email governor
Kempthorne & ask him to veto this bill. Tell him you will boycott Idaho, not
purchase Micron products and boycott Idaho potatoes.

The lives of the greyhounds depend on us.

Governor Dirk Kempthorne

or call him at 208-334-2100
Please cross post. The governor will decide on Wednesday.
