Stop sled dogs dying

Sled dog races push dogs to their limits.

 

Sled dogs are dying in cruel, long-distance races.  You can help stop this.

Five dogs have died so far in this year’s Iditarod race in Alaska. One died in the Yukon Quest in February.

The deaths have prompted an impassioned plea from P.J. Johnson, the Yukon Poet Laureate and life-long Yukoner, to end these races. 

To sign a petition against the Iditarod and contact race sponsors click here.

Another petition has been launched by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

VHS is supporting a new documentary called Sled Dogs, which exposes the cruelty of sled dog races and tours.  It will be available on the CBC Documentary Channel later this year.
