|Board Member Valarie Wolf with Kelly and Meadow|
Val's life truly changed a few years ago when she began to learn about the sad fate of galgos in Spain. That cruelty opened her eyes to other humane problems, including the suffering of racing greyhounds. Today, she is a committed animal advocate.
Val is also an accomplished artist, and brings a creative perspective to her role as a GREY2K USA Board officer. Her artistic eye sees greyhounds as "living sculptures." She remembers seeing photographs of sighthounds in an encyclopedia when she was about ten years old, and being awe-struck by the beautiful lines and angles of the graceful dogs.
In closing, Valarie tells me that she will always do her best to fight for animals. "They are innocent," she says. "They need every voice they can get." She also adds that greyhound breeders can try to spin the truth any way they want, but it won't change the fact that dog racing is cruel and inhumane. "They will apparently do anything to make it sound like the dog racing industry is all sweetness and light, but it's not."
Valarie Wolf is a wonderful voice for the greyhounds, and we are grateful to have her on the GREY2K USA team.
