Kansas officials are considering Senate Bill 319, which would allow the Wichita Greyhound Park racetrack to reopen for business and profit from the breeding and training of greyhounds.

An estimated 50,000 greyhounds are killed each year by the dog-racing industry because they sustain injuries such as broken legs or backs or fail to win. Most of those killed are younger than 3 years old, and breeding dogs for racing contributes to the already severe dog-overpopulation problem.

Greyhound racing is not a sport. Dogs run because they are forced to.

Urge officials to prevent cruelty to animals by opposing Senate Bill 319, which would allow the greyhound racetrack to reopen.
