When GREY2K was founded it was legal to race in 49 states. Today, years later, it is STILL legal to race in 49 states.
What has the Executive Director and President of GREY2K done with the thousands upon thousands of dollars the public has donated to them?
Could it be they (the Executive Director and President) prefer to spend donations on themselves with travels, entertainment, salaries and many other benefits?
Could it be that they are wasting dollars on multiple domain names?
Do you not think it is high time, in light of the fact that they have not “banned” racing in a single state yet collected huge sums of money, for a full accounting?
Maybe, it is time for the “anti-racing” crowd to take the blinders off and stop sending money to folks with no “real” accomplishments at banning racing and give money to organizations that truly care about the welfare and accountability of greyhounds?
Every day adoption programs carry out “real” accomplishments and do so without spending lavishly on the Executive Director and President of the group. Make your money count for real... Donate today to an adoption program found locally and tell...
In truth, most of the people associated with Grey2K could not and probably would not do what any member of an adoption group, such as It's A Grey Area, does in a day. For the first 6 months in 2012, It's A Grey Area has placed seventy-two (72) dogs in appropriate homes. So far Grey2K has not placed any dogs into homes. They proclaim to be advocating for the dogs by attempting to destroy the breed and the people who love them, day in & day out. Grey2K also claims to be supporting adoption groups by posting links to various "rescue" groups and by a "billboard" campaign, which points people to Grey2K USA's "Education Fund" site, where the following is stated
The GREY2K USA Education Fund is the all-volunteer 501(c)3 sister organization of GREY2K USA.
We work to document the cruelty of dog racing and to educate the
public about the history and lives of greyhounds. Our goal is to spread
the word about these gentle dogs and promote adoption efforts nationwide.
To support our efforts go here.
GREY2K USA – Money for nothing but themselves , lobbyists, and domain names?
On October 11 of 2011 Grey2K USA hired the following Lobbyists,
MELISSA KECKLER - 802 N 3RD AVE PHOENIX - 10/11/11 - GREY2K USAThey then terminated them on February 1, 2012, 4 months later. One has to wonder how much money they gave to these lobbyists during this 4 month period?
RIESTER - 802 N 3RD AVE PHOENIX - 10/11/11 - GREY2K USA
Later in February 2012, on Monday the 13th, Grey2K USA hired another lobbyist -
AZ GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS - 2525 E AZ BILTMORE CIRCLE STE A113 PHOENIX - 2/13/12 - GREY2K USADuring the last several months the President of GREY2K USA has disgraced the state of Arizona with several visits – trips that cost money.
Grey2k has fooled many into thinking they got SB1273 passed. What people fail to understand is SB1273 was written by the lobbyist for Tucson Greyhound Park, it was pushed by Tucson Greyhound Park. This bill was going to pass without any intervention on GREY2K’s part. Why did Grey2k waste thousands upon thousands of dollars on Lobbyists and trips for themselves?
You may be anti-racing and that is a choice you are free to make in this country, but folks it is time for all to come together and end the shenanigans of GREY2K USA, we can’t continue to allow the President and Executive Director of Grey2k to keep wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on themselves, lobbyists and politicians – the folks making a real difference need the money today – do the right thing – tell GREY2K USA “NO MONEY FOR YOU” and give it to a local adoption program.
Of course, there are links throughout to Grey2K USA, the lobbying arm that collects most of the donations and the obligatory request for donations, without which, neither Theil nor Dorchak would be collecting their salary. Yeppers.... 23% of the donations to Grey2K go right into the pockets of the husband & wife team of Theil & Dorchak, as shown on the Grey2K's 990 IRS Form.

Then, there are the domain names.... How many of them border on, if not are, copyright infringements?
The unethical behavior of GREY2K'S Executive Director who is also married to GRE2YK’S President and Legal counsel? Now while GREY2K will probably claim that GREY2K did not do this, the Executive Director has done this mass snookering of the public while married to his partner in crime who also masquerades as President and Legal Counsel of GREY2K, she very likely knows about this what I believe a majority would find to be unethical behavior!
Domain Names owned by Carey Theil – many pointing back to GREY2KUSA’s own site
During all this wasting of money and lining their pockets, you have groups crying out for funds... Groups such as
Racing Home Greyhound Adoption (RHGA), which not only runs a "regular" adoption program, they also run a prison program. Jody Brown, President - RHGA, "We could sure use some of the funds G2K has collected. We struggle every day to get these beautiful furkids vetted, cared for, and placed in loving homes. Seems to me the anti-racing group needs to wake up and smell the coffee!"
Smell the coffee? How about ditch the domain names? Transparency, something they demand of greyhound racing, is obviously not in their vocabulary! A classic case of "don't do as I do; do as I say."
Yours in greyhounds....
NOTE: Many, many thanks to Rory Goree and all of his helpful research! Couldn't do it without him.
