Together we’ve stopped this cruel trade in its tracks. Now, let’s make it official…
This is HUGE. No Australian greyhounds have been sent to Macau’s cruel Canidrome since our investigation into the terrible fate awaiting them was made public three months ago.
Despite an industry ban last year, 30 dogs were being flown from Australia to Macau every month, like clockwork. A ticket to Macau meant a death sentence for every single one of them.
When our investigation was broadcast on national television in December 2015, Australians were horrified, racing bodies launched internal inquiries, and attention turned to the airlines, which had unwittingly become a vehicle for this murky trade in Australian dogs.
Public outrage led to an unprecedented commitment from Qantas to no longer fly racing dogs to Asia, and it seems others have now followed. There is currently no place on any plane for any Australian greyhound to Macau!
