My name is Christine Dorchak and I am a dog lawyer.  That’s right, I went to law school just so that I could help dogs.  As President of GREY2K USA Education Fund, my specialty is greyhounds.  Every day, I work to pass laws to end dog racing and save the gentlest dogs in the world from lives of terrible cruelty. Link to GREY2K USA


At racetracks across the country,greyhounds are kept confined in warehouse-style kennels, inside small, stacked cages which are barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around.  If you can imagine being in a small elevator for 20-23 hours a day, then you will know how a greyhound feels all the time. 

 When let out of their cages to race (and for people to bet on), these poor dogs face the risk of terrible injury.  They suffer broken legs, they break their necks, and they also experience paralysis, seizures and heart attacks.  There are twenty-two dog tracks in the United States, and thousands of dogs get injured each yeah while racing.  And sadly, a dog who is injured may not be adopted.


I know what it is like to get hurt because when I was younger, my dog Kelsey and I were run down by a speeding train.  I hurt my back and could not get up by myself for a long time.  I had to learn to walk and talk all over again because my injuries were so severe. 


Kelsey broke her hip and actually had it surgically replaced.  Boy, did we need help!

 Unlike many greyhounds, we were given a second chance, something which we really appreciated.  That is why we decided to dedicate our lives to ending dog racing. We want all greyhounds to live like other dogs, in loving homes with adoring families, and not be killed when they no longer make money.  You can see my story and meet my dogs Kelsey and Zoe here.

If you would like to join our team, please watch our video and then request one of our activity kits. We will send you a poster, magnet and coloring book!

You can also ask your parents to buy you one of our great new books about greyhounds.  Pele’s Forever Home tells the story of an adopted greyhound and Daisy’s Great Escape describes the cruelties of the racing life through a greyhound’s eye.   You can order these online right here.


Lots of kids have been working to help greyhounds and you can too.  A wonderful group from the Prospect Academy in Cambridge, Massachusetts even made a movie!  See it now.

Although my dear Kelsey passed away at the age of fifteen, she lives on in the work we do at GREY2K USA and the GREY2K USA Education Fund.Today, Zoe and I and the whole greyhound team work each day to fulfill Kelsey’s promise to give the greyhounds the second chance they deserve.

“Janet, thank-you for everything you do. As I said before, you are truly an artist, and that is why it is so special buying jewelry from you.” Peter, Atlanta, GA

” Beauty, exquisite design, pleasant and personalized attention. These qualities have been constant in our 20 years of shopping with Janet and Jeff Deleuse – Two exceptionally talented and caring people. The Best!’ Helen P.,Belvedere

"This store has a very pleasant environment and Jeff and Janet are both kind, wonderful people. I used Jeff a few times for appraisals and he was very thorough and was happy to answer lots of questions. He uses scientific methods and tests rather than going solely by appearance as some jewelers will try to do, and his expertise is well respected. On one occasion, he even went out of his way to help expedite a deal for me. He has my highest recommendation. Suzanne T., San Rafael, CA

“Jeff is an incredible gemologist who knows everything there is to know about gem stones. He is a true professional and can be trusted. The quality of their work is impeccible and always consistent. I would recommend Deleuse Jewelers to anyone looking for a new, “bauble,” for themselves or someone special!” Terri B., Ross

"I have used Deleuse Jewelers for many years - for everything from purchasing jewelry to repairing jewelry to getting appraisals on jewelry. Their service and work is superb. I highly recommend them." Suzanne S., Tiburon, CA

"I purchased this beautiful chain from Janet Deleuse about 3 weeks ago. It was an online purchase so I was hoping I would be pleased. It exceeded my expectations as it was exactly as pictured. Delicate and perfectly crafted. Packing was very secure and shipping was quick. I would not hesitate to purchase from Deleuse again! Michele, New Jersey

“Janet and Jeff designed and crafted our wedding rings and did a great job. They worked with existing diamonds we had in an antique ruby cocktail ring, added the sapphire stone and made a beautiful pendant with the ruby. In addition, they designed earrings for our daughters. All are still in great shape today. They are easy to work with and very reliable and trustworthy.” Peg M., San Anselmo
