Christine Dorchak

Christine Dorchak (COM’90) of Arlington, Mass., published Brooklyn Goes Home: The Rise and Fall of American Greyhound Racing and the Dog that Inspired a Movement (Lantern Publishing & Media, 2023), which earned a silver Nonfiction Authors Association book award in October 2023. Brooklyn Goes Home tells the story of one intrepid greyhound who, after his rescue from a notorious racetrack in Macau, came to symbolize the global fight to end dog racing. Christine and coauthor Carey Theil write, “Our sweet boy spent years on death row, yet he held no grudges. Instead, he met each day with joy, always greeting everyone he encountered with a happy wag of his tail and a big smile. He taught us so much about true love and forgiveness.” Over 25 years, Christine and Carey’s nonprofit GREY2K USA Worldwide has helped save 50,000 greyhounds and end racing in multiple states. Now, their US Greyhound Protection Act looks to outlaw dog racing nationwide. Email Christine at christine@grey2kusa.org.
