The Protect Dogs-Yes on 13 campaign has been promoting passage of Amendment 13, put on the November ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC).

The proposal, which needs at least 60 percent approval to be added to the state constitution, would end betting on dog racing in the state beginning in 2021. In Florida, live dog racing is still conducted at 11 tracks.
