We hope your time here helps you along in your journey towards learning about greyhound racing and racing greyhounds, as well as to expose the disinformation spread by Grey2K USA and other animal rights groups. We know we have found ourselves confused by inflammatory statements with a red queen hollering for our heads! So, with that, follow us down the rabbit hole....
Greyhound Companions of New Mexico (GCNM) and Grey2K USA (Grey2K)
It has been brought to my attention that Greyhound Companions of NM (GCNM) has close ties to Christine Dorchak and Grey2K USA. How close?
Looks like Judy K Paulsen and Christine Dorchak are BFF's... bosom buddies... Well, you know what they say, "birds of a feather...."
Back in the early 2000's, USA bred greyhounds found themselves racing in Juarez Mexico. Kennel operators in Colorado had been approached by an individual working in Colorado who told them that the dog track in Juarez Mexico would be re-opening. They were also told that arrangements were made so that when the dogs were done racing there, they would be placed into adoption. In fact, that wasn't the case and Greyhound Pets of America (GPA) stepped in to help the greyhounds, going to Mexico and establishing a relationship with the people involved to ensure both the safety of the dogs and that they would be returning to the USA for adoption purposes.
In 2005, as GPA was trying to bring back dogs from Juarez Mexico to have the dogs put into adoption here in the United States, Ms. Paulsen and Grey2K minions were spreading lies about GPA and their efforts. Ms. Paulsen indicated that GCNM would be getting some of the Juarez dogs for placement. However, the sad fact is that even though GCNM is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is only about 5 hours from Juarez, they did nothing to help a single greyhound get back to the States from Juarez. The only thing she did was bluster and spread lies from the sidelines. It's my understanding that she tried to derail the efforts to get these dogs home with all of her misinformation & disinformation. Sounds like Grey2K, doesn't it - nothing to help the greyhounds but an awful lot of hot air being spewed. Another Grey2K associated individual, David Wolf, National Greyhound Adoption Program (NGAP), stated that it would be best to just put the Juarez greyhounds down. I quote,
"Keep American greyhounds in America! If you cannot find homes in the States then give them a gift even if that gift is euthanasia because that is better than sending them to the harsh reality of Juarez or any other foreign country."

These "greyhound advocates" are not advocates. They are small and mean spirited people who only "advocate" for the very special interests of groups like Grey2K USA.
