Please help ALDF speak out for sled dogs. Sponsorship is the biggest source of revenue for the race, so contact the Iditarod's corporate sponsors and request that they no longer fund this deadly and horrific event.

Noted and shared. Mixed feelings. My relatives in Alaska have sled dogs and most owners treasure their teams. All it takes is a few idiots to ruin what everyone, including the dogs, enjoy.

Thank you for taking action to help these sled dogs! By emailing the major corporate sponsors of the event you send a clear message that using dogs in this way is not acceptable.

I signed my own and yours Cher, does it count for two signatures? It seems you can sign the same petition numerous times and it doesn't tell you that have already...

I would like to see both this type of dog racing banned and off course Greyhoung racing. In my opinion no dog should be forced to race,especially pulling these sleds. That's called cruelty in my book. Gladly signed,thanks.

Signed! Sled dogs are exempt from anti-cruelty laws- so they can be chained up with no shelter, and killed at will if they are no longer needed for sledding.

But this breed really DOES like to exercise hard. Not necessarily pulling sleds, but they are not city dogs.

So signed!!! Sent emails last year as well. Seems as if this race is really popular among the sponsors, since they don't seem to care! Unfortunately!
Thanks Cher
