Commercial Dog Racing - funded and controlled by the gambling industry - is dependent on inherent cruel practices for its financial viability :

  • The culling of healthy puppies that fail to chase the mechanical lure or are too slow to 'make the grade'
  • The destruction of healthy greyhounds deemed no longer suitable as a 'betting product' - too old or slow - if no retirement home can be found.
  • The destruction of dogs that sustain treatable but 'career ending' injuries on the dangerously configured tracks designed purely for the spectator.
  • In 2014 the racing industry failed to account for over 10,000 greyhounds bred for British racing - despite much of the data collected by them via the GBGB Retirement Form

"Greyhound racing is a self-regulating gambling business that depends on the uncontrolled breeding and unaccountable disappearance of thousands of dogs every year. That is a situation that is unacceptable and indefensible"
