A voice for compassion for Greyhounds, advocating an end to Greyhound racing.
Raising global Greyhound issues, awareness, Welfare concerns

An industry defended as a 'tradition' or 'heritage' and promoted as a 'fun night out', with cheap or free deals to get people through the track doors.
Money is the primary objective and consequently tens of thousands of Greyhounds are bred and face a grim life -
For many it is life very short-lived.
