Macau dog track backtracks on an adoption program, letters needed now

Dear Friends,

Late Friday night, we learned that the Canidrome, China's only dog track, had agreed to end the killing of greyhounds and institute a an adoption program for ex-racers.

This news, coming less than five months after the start of our Rescue Brooklyn campaign, was wonderful to hear. The first dogs ever to leave the track alive were to be sent to local animal protection organization ANIMA on Monday morning. Read the announcement here.

However, by Monday night Albano Martins of ANIMA called back to report that the track had broken its agreement and that no greyhounds were to be released to him. He stated that track officials had simply lied to him, and they had also lied to the government negotiator. Read more here.

We must now redouble our efforts to Rescue Brooklyn and all the greyhounds at the Canidrome.

It has been reported that thirty greyhounds are killed each month at this facility, while still others die while racing. Please sign our new petition to Macau's Chief Executive to force the Canidrome to honor its agreement and begin releasing greyhounds for adoption. Each signature will generate a direct e-mail to Macau's Chief Executive Dr. Chui Sai On, who has been following this situation.

You may also send a letter by mail to:

Dr. Chui Sai On
Chief Executive of the Macau SAR Government
Praia Grande Avenue, Macau

Please act now to save the greyhounds of Macau. Look for updates at

For the greyhounds,

Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.
