POLICIES & CODES
The Greyhound Racing Association of America is a non-profit membership association founded to promote, protect and enhance the sport of greyhound racing and the greyhound industry through education, example and media for the benefits of its members, fans, supporters and the greyhound racing dogs that make this great sport possible.
Code of Ethics
GRA/America encourages responsible greyhound ownership for its members. Our goal is to provide the most efficient tools and information for our members to make greyhound racing an enjoyable and respected American experience.
Function of Association
GRA/America serves its purpose in the public relations sector through education, media and awareness.
- "Watchdog" - One of the most critical tasks of the Association is to stand as 'watchdog' for the industry when legislative issues are being presented in several different states across the country.
- Communication - Through efficient communication, GRA/America keeps its members informed of breaking news and developments so the industry can respond quickly.
- Media - The Association issues press releases and launches media campaigns to inform the public about important events pertaining to the sport.
- Education - Through publications, appearances and human interaction, GRA/America will spread the good of racing into the public sector and dispel the beliefs that have been instilled by animal extremist propaganda. This includes revealing today's common practices concerning raising pups on the farm, to racing at the track and finally finding homes through adoption.
- Citizenship - Through letter writing, telephone and e-mail campaigns, the Association harnesses the power of numbers and instructs members how to play an active role in legislative issues. Together, the members help represent the best interests of the sport in politics. Greyhound racing is a "Sleeping Giant".
