Right now, there are hundreds of greyhounds living at the Canidrome dog track in Macau. These dogs are kept in small cages, and every single one will eventually be killed. I need your immediate help to end this cruelty.
Over the past year, we worked with Animals Australia, Animals Asia, and ANIMA in fighting for changes at the Canidrome, the only legal dog track in China. The situation is terrible for dogs at this facility. Every year hundreds of greyhounds are imported from Australia, and all are killed when they are injured or no longer profitable. Also, we have documented severe injury problems at the Canidrome.
Although our campaign has made progress, there is a lot more work still left to do. That is why we recently sent a letter to all of the major animal protection groups worldwide, asking them to join us and speak with one voice for the Macau greyhounds. So far, the response has been overwhelming. More than two dozen animal protection organizations have agreed to help, and are joining this important effort.
Now, I need your help. Let's intensify the pressure on the governments of both Macau and Australia, and show them how many people care about greyhounds. Please do the following three things today:
- Send a polite e-mail to Macau Chief Executive Dr. Chui Sai On at firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask that the Canidrome be permanently closed.
- Send a polite e-mail to Australia's Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Senator Joe Ludwig at email@example.com, and ask him to immediately halt the export of greyhounds to Macau.
- Forward this e-mail to everyone you know who cares about greyhounds.
It has been a long road in our effort to help these dogs, but I am optimistic that we are close to a major breakthrough. Together, let's give these dogs the voice they deserve.
For the greyhounds,
Carey M. Theil
