End Greyhound Racing.

Greyhound Racing has been going on for far too long. Since the 20th Century, these beautiful canines are just seen as entertainment, and profit. It needs to stop. Away from the race track, greyhounds are kept in kennels that barely accumulate to the Animal Welfare Act.
After their 'career' is over, if they are lucky enough to be in a rescue and rehoming shelter, many end up staying there for months, as nobody realise that these animals are excellent family pets. From first hard experience, greyhounds which have had a 'career' in racing, often do not know what a toy is, and therefore can become fearful of them, especially ones which squeak.
Animals are not entertainment. Greyhound racing is not a "great day out for all of the family." It is a barbaric event that needs to end. Think of Rusty. In 2004, a black greyhound called Rusty was put to sleep after surviving a gunshot to the head, and having his ears hacked off. These injuries occurred because he performed poorly in a race, and the individual who performed these injuries, was paid £10.
Is the life of a dog really worth £10? A life is a life, help these animals have the life they deserve. Sign this petition.
