Message from Friends of the Hound Greyhound adoption Centre

“I would love to call on your help to assist with the Greyhound issue ie. approx. 22,000 bred each year for racing & it is estimated that around 15,000 are destroyed each year. Thousands upon thousands of beautiful healthy dogs killed for no other reason than they are surplus to racing industry requirements.”

Another terrible tragedy happening on our doorstep. These wonderful dogs do not even have to be registered, so who knows where they end up. Again legislation is letting these animals down.
This article is called ‘Hope on the Horizon for Greyhounds’ and tells you what’s happening in the UK, maybe we can get this sort of action happening here?

    All greyhounds in Australia are registered by the governing greyhound body in each State. In Queensland ( I am not sure about the other States) they must be registered by Local Council also. When rehomed, as a pet or companion dog, these greyhounds are required to be registered by Local Council just like any other domestic breed.
