PLEASE MAKE A COMMENT CLEARLY STATING WHETHER YOU CHOOSE TO BOYCOTT COMPANIES THAT PROMOTE OR CONDONE GREYHOUND RACING.
While greyhounds suffer in silence, Argos continues to support the existence of animals being used for entertainment purposes despite the serious welfare concerns that we have recently highlighted to them.
The dogs do not have a voice and are solely dependent on individuals such as yourself to help stop the cruel practices that are imposed on them.Greyhound racing is in serious decline which is great news but while it remains legal it will always be dependent on inherent cruelty to make profit.
Animal welfare concerns must be taken seriously. It is no joke for the dogs who are exploited on an everyday basis and while this cruel practice is reinforced by certain independent companies, we ask that you make the choice of whether you will boycott all of their services.
Many people have contacted Argos with their concerns, yet Argos continues to advertise gift offers for attendance at greyhound racing tracks. Below is a generic email reply that has been sent to concerned members of the public who have contacted them;
"Thank you for your email which has been received and read by David Robinson. I have been asked to respond to you on his behalf.
As a responsible retailer, we aim to ensure that any products we source through suppliers are compliant with relevant animal welfare regulation. The Activity Superstore, which provides this product, has confirmed that all racecourses involved are fully licensed by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB).
We always welcome customer feedback and will be sharing our customers' views on this product with our supplier.
Please take the pledge and sign the petition to ask Argos to refrain from continuing with any involvement of the greyhound racing industry, also please politely state whether you will choose to boycott Argos if they continue to condone the use of animals for entertainment purposes where there are serious welfare concerns.
Thank you for helping the hounds!!!
