While Greyhound Racing New South Wales (GRNSW) claims they are trying to improve their animal welfare policies, they cannot deny that thousands upon thousands of greyhounds are still being murdered by their organization

Absolutely signed and shared

Each year thousands of greyhounds are murdered because they are no longer “fit” to participate in races. The dogs that are killed are either ill, injured, or too slow to race. While Greyhound Racing New South Wales (GRNSW) claims they are trying to improve their animal welfare policies, they cannot deny that thousands upon thousands of greyhounds are still being murdered by their organization. GRNSW admitted that an average of 3,000 greyhounds are killed annually because it is no longer profitable to keep and maintain these dogs.

For people who don't understand why greyhound racing is cruel, THIS is the reason. Dogs are killed just because they don't run as fast as the next dog- and don't say,"well they try to find homes for them" - BULL! It is the greyhound activists trying to rescue and adopt out these dogs, not the racing industry.

Noted, tweeted, signed, tweeted, and shared. Just another example of our culture abusing animals for money. Never will understand people who can do these things; they have no conscience or respect for life.

Poor defenceless dogs - just cast aside after serving their owners faithfully, and now no longer have that 'winning streak'. Many of these dogs could find good homes - they are gentle and smart. Signed

OMG!! They don't even try to find new homes for them. it is easier to just have the vet put down 4 dogs a week. That is tragic. Those poor innocent babies. All they want to do is please their people and that is how little their people think of them. Creeps!!
