An Open Letter to Iditarod Supporters

[Ed. Note: Find contact information for Iditarod supporters at Tell Iditarod Sponsors to End Their Support of Cruelty to Dogs.]

January 2011

Dear Iditarod Supporter:

We were fortunate to have visited two locations housing/training Iditarod dogs during a lovely trip to Alaska about four years ago. We were immediately impressed with these beautiful and dedicated dogs. We were also unaware of the suffering identified by a caring group whose goal it is to end their suffering.

We have learned the following. For the dogs, the 1,000 mile Iditarod dog sled race is a bottomless pit of suffering:

Please end your organization's association with this horrific race.

Sincerely,

Bonnie J. Wagner-Westbrook
