ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Help Shut Down Greyhound Racing in Macau

Australia is currently home to the third largest greyhound racing industry in the world, with an estimated 20,000 pups bred every year. Unfortunately the ones who don't make the grade are discarded and killed, or shipped to Macau, China, where they'll spend their lives in tiny cages at the Canidrome race track when they're not running for their lives. Without an adoption program in place, death for these dogs is imminent whether or not they win or lose. 

Please send a letter to Macau's Chief Executive asking him to shut down Canindrome.

2. Tell the UK to Ban Greyhound Racing

Despite hardships faced by this dying industry, tens of thousands of greyhounds continue to be bred for racing. Thousands are believed to be killed before they ever make it to the track, while others are abandoned or killed after they're no longer useful. 

Please sign the petition asking the government to stop this cycle of abuse and shut this industry down for good.

3. Help Stop Hare Coursing in Ireland

Every year thousands of hares are taken from the wild and used as lures for greyhounds in a brutal "sport" known as hare coursing. Aside from cruelly being subjected to unnecessary terror, rabbits are often injured and killed during these events – even when dogs are muzzled. Rabbits shouldn't have to endure these events and greyhounds shouldn't be used as a tool to perpetuate animal cruelty for entertainment. 

This practice has already been banned in a few places including the UK and Northern Ireland, but still continues. 

Please sign these petitions supporting a ban on hare coursing. 



Please sign the petition asking the Limerick Racecourse to stop hosting hare coursing:

A New Life for Greyhounds
Supporting Grey2k our COTM for September

Please speak up for greyhounds who are being used and discarded by the racing industry so they can have a second chance to live the lives they should have had all along. Hopefully, with enough voices advocating for them, they'll get a chance to exist free from exploitation.
