Swansea dog track closes

Posted on the 13th November 2009

Swansea dog track in South Wales has closed less than two weeks after the owner was fined under the Animal Welfare Act for keeping greyhounds in poor conditions. Inspectors found dogs kept on soiled bedding, kennels smelling of urine, and one dog with an open wound on his tail that had been left untreated.

The closure of the track is an important victory for the campaign against dog racing, but has left many greyhounds in need of homes after being discarded by owners who only wanted them for use in racing. Anyone who can help by offering a permanent or foster home to a Swansea greyhound should contact Greyhound Rescue Wales on 0300 0123 999 or at info@greyhoundrescuewales.co.uk.
