Help Pass The Greyhound Protection Act
In Seminole County, citizens have joined together in a grassroots campaign to protect greyhounds. The Greyhound Protection Act will:
- Ensure that greyhound injuries at Sanford Orlando Kennel Club are reported to the public.
- Require greyhound trainers to provide information on the fate of greyhounds that leave the track.

The Greyhound Protection Act is endorsed by leading animal protection organizations and community leaders.
