Stop sponsoring cruel greyhound racing

Greyhound racing is a cruel industry that exploits and abuses dogs. If the dogs don't win money for owners, they are abandoned, dumped or killed. Each and every year, an estimated 10,000 Irish greyhounds disappear - most likely killed because they are not fast enough. The Irish greyhound industry also exports dogs to parts of the world where no animal protection exists - for example China/Macau, Pakistan, etc. No company should sponsor greyhound racing - by funding it, they are directly supporting the suffering and death of dogs.
