Sled dogs are dying in cruel, long-distance races. You can help stop this.
The deaths have prompted an impassioned plea from P.J. Johnson, the Yukon Poet Laureate and life-long Yukoner, to end these races.

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.
