The greyhound racing statistics are harrowing. Last year, South Australia saw 28 greyhounds killed on the racetrack, and a staggering 901 on-track injuries.
These figures represent only a fragment of the devastation. Numerous young dogs, victims of overbreeding or simply deemed unfit for racing, face uncertain fates. Behind these statistics are countless stories of pain, suffering, and untimely ends.
Recently, disturbing footage came to light via the ABC showing the unconscionable abuse of greyhounds, including puppies, on a property south-east of Adelaide.
The horrific footage shows greyhounds being kicked and punched by individuals who clearly lack the basic empathy expected of any human being.
The suffering these dogs endures all in the name of entertainment and profits is unforgivable.
Join us for this peaceful vigil in Rundle Mall to remember the countless dogs who have suffered and lost their lives. They might be considered wastage to the greyhound industry, but to us each and everyone of those dogs matter. Their lives matter. And we won’t stop fighting until all of them only know a world filled with love and kindness.
