PLEASE support this Written Declaration!
1 year ago

The EU - A new written declaration 0006/2013 - which seeks to put an immediate stop to the torture and mistreatment of greyhounds in Europe has been opened for signatures during the last plenary session in Strasbourg.

Greyhounds are generally used for hunting and racing in many Member States of the European Union and are liable to be subjected to torture by their owners if they regard the animals as unsuitable for that purpose.


This new declaration (PDF-link) has been launched on 15 April 2013 by Members of the European Parliament Michèle Striffler, Michel Dantin, Dan Jorgensen, Raul Romeva i Rueda, Kartika Tamara Liotard, Santiago Fisas Ayxela, Sirpa Pietikainen, Cristian Dan Preda, Iva Zanicchi, Sonia Alfano, Gianni Vattimo, and Andrea Zanoni.

To be adopted the declaration must be signed by at least 369 MEPs (half of the House) before 15 July 2013 when it will lapse.

We calls on all  MEPs to support this written declaration with their signature.

I was unsure if there was something to sign with this last entry about the declaration.  If it is emails to send, I couldn't figure it out.  It asks for you to pick a language and English was not a choice.  Anyway, not sure what to do with this and maybe it's just informational.  I certainly do hope that this declaration is adopted and the torture of these poor dogs is stopped immediately.

Subject: MEP's of Spain, please sign against the suffering of Galgos!


Estimados Miembros

Le pido prestar atención a la problemática de los galgos y greyhounds, una raza sometida en España e Irlanda a un destino cruel poco conocido en otros países.

Esos perros son utilizados como herramientas de caza o máquinas de correr. No son considerados como seres vivos capaces de sentir y sufrir, ni mucho menos como perros de compañía.

Durante toda su vida están encerrados en chabolas  sucias y oscuras sin acceso a agua limpia ni alimentación adecuada. Son criados en masa y sin control alguno. Un 90 % de ellos son desechados al cabo de pocos años de vida y además de manera cruel: Ahorcados, tirados vivos en pozos, atados para morirse de sed y hambre o simplemente abandonados en campos o entregados en perreras.

Las pocas e insuficientes leyes de protección animal de los países en cuestión no ofrecen protección a esta raza, su implementación no se controla e infracciones no se sancionan.

De momento en ambos países no existen intentos de cambiar esa situación insoportable.

El art. 13 del Tratado de Lisboa, sin embargo, obliga a todos los Estados Miembros a tener plenamente en cuenta el bienestar de animales como seres vivos capaces de sentir y a tomar medidas adecuadas al respecto.

Algunos diputados del Parlamento Europeo lanzaron ahora la iniciativa de mejorar las condiciones de vida de los galgos y greyhounds.

Por esta razón le pido encarecidamente firmar antes del 15 de julio la Declaración Escrita 0006/2013 y contribuir así a que se ponga fin a esa situaciíon precaria y vergonzosa.

No Irish Greyhounds to Spain

Update #1 November 4, 2013

Thank you for signing the No Irish Greyhounds to Spain petition. You can follow the campaign on the No Irish greyhounds to Spain facebook page. Please also leave a comment on the Irish Greyhound Board's facebook page expressing your concern. You will have to hijack another post to do that as posts by 'others' do not appear on their page! The dogs are scheduled to leave Ireland for Spain on November 19th. Time is running out for these graceful, loyal hounds. They are depending on you!

Stop Cruel Dog Racing Mandates ! PLEASE SIGN ! !
Animals  (tags: animals, AnimalWelfare, cruelty, dogs, environment, protection, suffering )
Cher - 9 hours ago - change.org

Believe it or not, states like Florida and Iowa actually require live greyhound racing in order for other forms of gambling to exist. This means the dogs are forced to suffer needlessly while the cruel racing industry is propped up.

Being, I suppose, the newest member of the group, I've started to check petitions from the very beginning and to sign those I haven't yet.

I'm glad to be among friends who care about these sensitive and beautiful , yet so unloved dogs ...

Big hugs to all and DON'T GIVE UP  !!
