STOP TESCO SUPPORTING GREYHOUND RACING VIA THEIR CLUB CARD VOUCHER SCHEME

This petition had 3,798 supporters


We would like Tesco to withdraw their implicit support for the Greyhound racing industry by removing the club card exchange vouchers for Irish Greyhound Racing. 

Greyhound Racing is in rapid decline - Why? The mass destruction of Greyhounds is no longer acceptable by society.  Recent investigations have shown large scale "Doping of dogs - Race fixing - Impossible to rehome all the dogs   due to the masses bred for racing each year, resulting in the inhumane destruction of young and healthy dogs when they are no longer of racing quality (the numbers are staggering  - Dogs being discarded, ear tattoos are sometimes removed to hide identification of owners - Acid poured into ears to disguise tattoos, or ears completely amputated - Dogs are sometimes killed in the most horrific ways"

About 40,000 greyhounds pups are registered, however only about 11,000 of them will make it to the British tracks and about 5000 to the Irish ones. The other 22,000 who fail to reach racing standards are most likely put to death.

There is little or no enforcement of regulations to protect greyhounds
