Stop the Super Bowl Ad Promoting Dog Racing: Change.org

This from Gray2K:

On November 22, GREY2K USA learned that Skechers had filmed a commercial at Tucson Greyhound Park featuring greyhound dogs in running jackets pitted against a small dog wearing Skechers sneakers.

We wrote to the company and asked you to join us in asking for this misguided promotion to be cancelled. Thankfully, thousands of greyhound advocates around the world signed our petition and also sent direct e-mails to company officials.

We have now learned that Skechers denies that it is promoting dog racing and that the greyhound ad will be aired during February’s Super Bowl! Additionally, Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, is to be featured and was present for filming at the dog track.

Last week, Skecher’s Vice President of Media Gary Patrick e-mailed me a three-sentence letter from the American Humane Association (dated December 5) stating that no animal was harmed in production of the commercial. This is good news, but hardly excuses the company for promoting greyhound racing!
