Racing greyhounds face isolation, cruelty, injury and often an early death – but now is a crucial time as you have the chance to help them.
The Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) is currently conducting a five year review of the Welfare of Racing Greyhounds Regulations which were introduced in 2010. The League Against Cruel Sports believes these regulations fail to safeguard greyhound welfare and as a result racing dogs continue to suffer needlessly.
The League are calling on the government to strengthen the regulations. Dogs are kept in horrific conditions, treated appallingly, and when their ‘career’ is over they’re either killed, or sent to Ireland to take part in barbaric hare coursing.
It won’t take more than ten minutes of your time, but you must respond before 31st December 2015.
Thank you for your support.
