Dear Friends,


In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we would like to share some good news and invite you to join us in supporting some of the wonderful groups working to save greyhounds in the Emerald Isle.  ​

According to industry publication Greyhound Star, the number of Irish greyhounds bred to be used and abused for racing has declined by 50% in the last fifteen years! A recent article laments that “many breeders have already given up” and left the industry due to its continuing decline and the closure of iconic tracks like Harold’s Cross Stadium in Dublin.

Unfortunately, the cruelty of racing is still significant. According to Dogs Trust, as many as 3,500 greyhounds still disappear from record each year. Additionally, just as in the United States, innocent dogs are testing cocaine-positive at 16 tracks all across the country.

Thankfully, there are many organizations in place to try and save these innocent hounds. We applaud the volunteers working with Dog Rescue Ireland, Great Hounds in Need, Limerick Animal Welfare, Galway SPCA, Cara Rescue Dogs, Erin Hounds, Kerry Greyhound Connection and so many others in Ireland and across the world. Please consider making a direct donation to help them and take a look at some of their beautiful, adoptable dogs right now.

Last year’s rally outside of Irish Parliament was just the start. With your support, we will return to Ireland to encourage lawmakers there to follow in the footsteps of other countries now supporting an end to dog racing.

For the greyhounds,
