Our open letter:
Dear Minister Creed,

We regretfully inform you of the sad news that Irish greyhound High Maintenance has died. You mightn't remember but he was one of the dogs exported to the notorious & cruel #Canidrome stadium in Macau. You yourself were told on numerous occasions that these dogs were going to die there yet you stood back & let it happen.
We're writing to you as we & many others already have on numerous occasions, to tell you about the Canidrome. As we've already said, the stadium houses as many as 800 distressed greyhounds at a time & there's a shocking estimated 30 killed there every month, like clockwork. No dog makes it out of the Canidrome alive. We’ve all told you about this hell hole for greyhounds so many times that in reality you couldn’t but be aware of it.
We're writing to commend you too as it can’t be denied that you have some talent in regard to ignoring the reality of this situation. You’ve impressed us all with how little you care but that time is over. Dogs are dying & you have the power to stop it & we urge you to show some compassion & do so. We're writing to you with the news of another dead greyhound, 1 you could have helped were you not so desperately trying not to rock the boat with your friends in the Irish Greyhound Board.
We're writing to you on behalf of a scared dog sent to 1000's of miles away called High Maintenance. This dog died because the people who had the power to save him couldn’t care less. We're writing to you on behalf of all the greyhounds who suffered before him & those who haven’t met the same fate as him just yet.
We're writing to you, our seemingly compassionless minister, to ask (again) for you to #bangreyhoundexports and stop the suffering of Irish greyhounds in China. You’ve already been responsible for the death & suffering of many dogs, but there is still time to save others. Ban greyhound exports now to all countries with no animal welfare, there’s no excuse for allowing this abuse to continue.
Not For Your Entertainment

Where did these greyhounds come from? #bangreyhoundexports This girl Helen has been saved by the Lunar Foundation from a Chinese dog shelter. The shelter dogs were actually saved from slaughterhouses where they would be killed for meat, but the shelter they are in is not a good life for them. They are injured, disease is everywhere, they are suffering from various infections and they are starving. Visit the Lunar Foundation Facebook page and Please consider donating so more dogs can be removed from these conditions. https://www.gofundme.com/CHsaveashelterdog 💜 #greyhoundsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #galgo #greyhounds #nationaldogday #adoptdontshop

Bello, bello, bello mondo, bello ridere di
mondo in luce mattutina in
colorazione di mondo con stagioni e
popolazione e animali. Bello mondo
questo ricordo, questo io lo ricordo
bello, molto bello mondo, con cielo
diurno e notturno, con facce che
mi piacevano e musi e zampe e
vegetazione che mi sospirava e mi
sospirava leggera leggera, tirando
via chili e scarponi interiori che mi
infangavano, tirando via ferri da stiro
che mi portavo nel petto, e gran pulitura
di dentro. Bello questo io lo ricordo
bello -
Io ho avuto soccorso a volte da
una piccola foglia, da un frutto così
ben fatto che dava sollievo

Kerry Elliman: "There is no such thing as "welfare" when it comes to the export of racing greyhounds. Theres talks of a bill in Ireland coming into place to stop the exports of racing greyhounds to countries with no welfare laws. What people seem to be missing is most of the greyhounds exported to the likes of Pakistan, China etc go via third countries. We need a complete ban of the exports of racing greyhounds from the uk and Ireland. Spain has welfare laws but the sighthounds are treated horrific, same as Romania. We will not support any bill that just has a no export to countries with no welfare. If this bill got passed the dogs would be well and truly screwed. If a greyhound is sold to Europe, Australia or even to America there's no stopping that same dog from then going on to china etc. We know this for a fact is happening. All rescues and campaigners need to get behind the export ban. For groups that agree with this bill you will have blood on your hands. We can not compromise on this. The dogs must come first. Stop breeding, stop racing, stop exports." #GreyhoundFriendsUK #bangreyhoundexports #bangreyhoundracing

I met this gorgeous girl today... Lucy 🐶 Greyhounds are such a beautiful, kind & gentle breed and have been given so much flack over the years. I take my hat off to Lucy's owner Jackie who is campaigning to help these fur companions. If only people were more aware of the statistics, the cruelty & the behind the scenes cover ups!! 😥🐾
