 SAVE THE GREYHOUNDS

No dog should have to die for the sake of a bet.
Join the campaign to keep the ban on greyhound racing in NSW. 

 
 
 

On 11 October 2016, former Premier Mike Baird bowed to pressure from the Nationals and industry and backflipped on its greyhound racing ban. 

In announcing the backflip, Baird said that he had 'gotten the decision wrong' and that the industry deserved 'one last chance' to change. But we know better than to trust the greyhound industry, which has shown time and again to be incapable and unwilling to reform.

And we should have known better than to trust that the former Premier would place animal welfare ahead of his own political interests. 

So long as the greyhound racing industry is permitted to operate, thousands of greyhounds will be injured and die prematurely just for the sake of a bet. Similarly, blood doping and cheating will no doubt remain endemic, and there's every chance that live baiting will resume unabated. 

But we're not giving up the fight.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian will need to introduce a new Bill to revoke the ban, and we won't be making it easy for her. We'll be joining forces with greyhound rescue groups, animal protection organisations and the tens of thousands of people who have raised their voice against this cruel industry. 

You can play your part by signing the above petition and sharing it far and wide. Together, we can put pressure on the NSW Government to #KeepTheBan.
