The peninsula of Macau is home to a single dog track called the Canidrome. At the Canidrome, nearly 400 greyhounds are put to death every year. Brooklyn is one of the dogs at risk.
Brooklyn is four-years-old and he is a white, red and fawn greyhound. On May 5, 2012 Brooklyn fell while racing. Track records document that he was cut and wounded. This was the fourth race in a row in which he has finished in fifth place or worse.
According to the Macau Daily Times, when a Canidrome dog slows down and finishes outside the top three in five races in a row, she or he is simply destroyed. There is no adoption program at this terrible track! The head of Macau's animal control department has stated that every greyhound is dead within three years and as many as four hundred greyhounds are killed each year after racing.
Not a single dog leaves the Canidrome alive.
This senseless activity must end. Please read the demand letter from GREY2K USA Worlwide, Animals Asia and Animals Australia and then join us in calling for an end to dog racing in Macau.
Please sign our petition to the Chief Executive of Macau, Dr. Chui Sai On now. Ask him to force the track to release Brooklyn and to close the Canidrome once and for all.
