Help the campaign against greyhound racing
The South China peninsula of Macau is home to a single and ageing dog track called the Canidrome.
When not racing, the dogs are confined for long periods of time in tiny cages stacked two high. Racing can cause serious injuries, and it has been reported that around 400 dogs are killed by lethal injection each year. There is no adoption program at the Canidrome.
Unfortunately countries like Australia continue to allow dogs to be exported to Macau. In 2011, Australia sent 309 greyhounds there.
The racing of greyhounds for entertainment inflicts severe suffering on many thousands of dogs annually. Animals Asia Foundation is working with Grey2K USA, Animals Asia, Animals Australia and local Macau group ANIMA to halt the exportation of dogs to Macau and to close the dog track.
How you can help:
Please write to Australia’s Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and ask him to stop the export of greyhounds to Macau.
