In 2015, investigations by Animals Australia and Animal Liberation QLD exposed dozens of greyhound trainers across NSW, Victoria and Queensland for ‘live baiting’.

Terrified piglets, rabbits and native possums were being tied to lures, flung around racetracks at breakneck speeds, and then mauled to death — in a sadistic training method that was not only widespread, but widely accepted.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Hoping to breed fast and ‘profitable’ dogs, the primary goal of the racing industry is to generate gambling income – many dogs bred into the industry never make it to a race, and those who are ‘winners’ spend most of their time confined to barren concrete and wire kennels and are put at high risk of injury and death during training and racing.

With Australians demanding an end to this cruel ‘sport’, a ban in the ACT was a big win for dogs and the people who care so much about them. But now it’s time for governments in other states to follow their lead.

While greyhound racing continues anywhere in Australia dogs are still under threat.

You can help spare greyhounds from this cruel industry

If you want your state to shut down greyhound cruelty too, now is the time to speak up! Please send an urgent message to your State MP calling on them to ban greyhound racing.

Speak up for greyhounds today.
