In June, you spoke out to help stop dogs from being mistreated in unethical races – thank you! Your message was heard.
An application to close Westhoughton Greyhound Stadium in Bolton was under threat from racing enthusiasts who were determined to continue exploiting dogs for profit. But after you, along with thousands of other compassionate people, wrote to Bolton Council, kindness won out. The council has approved the closure of the stadium, meaning that Bolton is now free of dog racing.
This great news shows what we can achieve for animals when we act together. Thank you for using your voice to oppose cruelty – we couldn't do what we do without you!
Each year, thousands of greyhounds in Australia are euthanized for not being fast enough or able to race. Even more suffer mistreatment, abuse, and neglect at the hands of greedy owners. Tell Australia to clean up its dog racing industry with enforced regulations.

Yes Sandi agree with you, Greyhounds are wonderful pets! When i voluntered at a shelter nearby that was taking greyhounds from Spain I learned about their good character and their peaceful nature. But they need a garden to run because you can't let them from the leash when walking, they are hunting dogs and run after every cat, rabbit etc. Its in their nature. It would be nice to have a big garden,wouldn't it ?

The situation of Spanish greyhounds is so serious that last October 2011, the Animal Welfare Intergroup of the European Parliament demanded an explanation from Spain for the treatment of hunters give these dogs in our country, in a letter transmitting the Spanish President concerned about the extreme cases of cruelty documented by rescue organizations.
Greyhounds are'' severely beaten, burned, doused with acid, thrown into wells, in caves or abandoned tied to death by hunters when `` no longer serve, indicated in the letter, signed by several MEPs.
The letter reminded Spain that the Lisbon Treaty commits signatory states to ensure the welfare of animals, and called for a strengthening of national laws to bring an end to these atrocities.
Although a state law would have little room for maneuver because the responsibility for animal rights are transferred to the Autonomous Communities, with this initiative, requested in 2009 at the behest of then deputy Verds Initiative for Catalonia, Joan Herrera, expected that the Spanish Government to take a step beyond animal welfare and approved at last promised Animal Protection Act, one of the unfinished business of the last socialist government.

While Spanish greyhounds and other hunting dogs continue to suffer all kinds of abuse and assault, was first convened in Strasbourg an international demonstration in favor of their cause promoted by the French Association CREL (www.crel.fr), whose founders describe themselves as'' passionate about animals, the canine world, and more particularly the `` Spanish greyhounds.
'' After many years of volunteer work with several animal welfare groups (or against animal abuse) and the protection of greyhounds. After a hard work with the local press, Spanish and French government, following complaints from shelter dogs and hounds in Spain, after numerous petitions signed and sent, we regret to say that NOTHING HAS CHANGED FOR HOUNDS SPANISH MARTYRS, whose problem is still largely ignored in France and in Spain itself `` explain. '' Therefore, we decided to unite to fight and walk together! To join all the GOOD people that own dogs or not, or simply share our outrage at this human irresponsibility. ``
Now they hope to get the attention of public opinion bringing the tragedy of the Spanish greyhounds to Strasbourg, where they invite all citizens in solidarity with the animals to join them in the assembly and subsequent progress of the June 9, at 14.00 h., before the European Parliament.

The tragedy of the Spanish greyhounds come to Strasbourg

Each year thousands of greyhounds are tortured to death in Spain as punishment for not being good hunters during the season. Animal protection organizations throughout Spain and Europe June 9 will travel to Strasbourg to report to Parliament tragedy. Barcelona and Madrid will hold rallies in support on 10.
Photo: Free ONGLa Spain cruelty to animals is no secret in Europe. Not only by our known love of torturing bulls and heifers in several places and parties, but also by our equally famous and curious habit of leaving, caged or chained for life to dogs, especially for hunting.
In Germany, can be counted by hundreds of thousands of proud owners who walk with their dog taken refuge in a little Spanish and are not aware of such associations and other European countries dedicated to handle adoptions of greyhounds or other breeds of dogs rescued from the horror of our packs of hunting or the collapse of our shelter and protection.

But extremely worrying, if anything, is the annual tragedy of greyhound racing, hunting or Spanish, who, albeit slowly, begins to be known through the work of organizations such as SOS GALGOS, GALGOS WITHOUT BORDERS, DEGALGOS, PRO-GREYHOUND, THE SHELTER, BAASGALGO, GALGOS 112, or the French CREL, among many more.
'' Every year thousands of greyhounds are used as hunting weapons in Spain. Once the hunting season is over, the worst are killed, and besides, are killed in a `` vicious, say the experts of the French association CREL:'' Semi-hung (by the method of the pianist, so that the hind legs touch the ground and the dog has a very slow and horrible agony), burned with acid, washed with cars, motorcycles or other vehicles, or amputees so that they can not move ... The aim of this torture is to punish the wicked hunters or riders. You do not kill a greyhound, he maimed and leaves him until death comes after a long agony. ``
