Action for Greyhounds started a new campaign in August 2015 ' The Cinema Awareness Campaign' .
First aired at Hollywood Cinema Yarmouth Norfolk located a short distance from the local greyhound track, in all 5 screens, before every film, every day for 12 months.
In July 2017 the the 12 month campaign got bigger and better when it opened at Showcase Deluxe Cinema, Bluewater, Dartford in all 13 screens before every film every day with an annual viewing audience of 1.03 million and within he catchment area of 4 licensed greyhound tracks and at Newcastle Cineworld,in all 16 screens, before every film, every day with an annual viewing audience of just over 1 million and within the catchment area of 3 licensed greyhound tracks.
The adverts are reguly alternated, so each advert can raise an alternative form of awareness to a captive audience.

Here is a current article from pro racing newspaper The Racing Post.
Claiming a victory..yet later stating ' the damage has been done'.
Well who do you all think claims victory with this?.
The 'Where Have all The Greyhounds Gone?' cinema ad was not only shown last Summer. First it was shown August 2015 to August 2016 at Yarmouth Hollywood cinema with no complaints. then it was shown at 2 major cinemas Dartford and Newcastle from July 2017 to November 2017 when AfG took the ad down through our own choice, but only to replace it with our 2nd powerful advert. ' the Race for Life'
Where Have all The Greyhounds Gone? will be shown again, but not in it's original form, we will merely change a couple of words on the ad and the powerfull images and the awareness will remain just as effective.
Also we must wish the GBGB good luck with fighthing the claims made by the statement ' You Bet They Die' a powerful slogan brought to the begining of the anti racing campaign by Greyhound Action when they formed way back in 1997.
Here is and extract from the Racing Post newspaper:
Please note: AfG were only ' faced' with a ruling from the ASA Council, but the complaint was dealt with informaly and did not go as far as reaching the ASA Council decision.

The GBGB is pleased that the Advertising Standards Authority has found in its favour over a complaint it made against Action for Greyhounds for its cinema advert “Where have all the greyhounds gone.”

The advert was shown in cinemas last summer and contained the claim that “Every year, many thousands of greyhounds are bred to meet the demand generated by the British racing industry. Only half the greyhounds bred make it to the track”. There was text in the advert asking, “where have all the greyhounds gone?” while a voiceover said: “thousands disappear and are untraceable.”

The ASA investigations panel found that the advert breached the Code of Advertising Practice Rules 3.1 (misleading adverting) and 3.7 (substantiation) and faced with a Ruling from the ASA Council, Action for Greyhounds provided written assurances that it would not repeat the claims or seek to run the advert again.

GBGB Media and Communications Officer Simon Banks said” While it is a pleasing result, it is a bit late in the day and the damage has been done. However, it means that the advert will never been shown again. The Cinema Advertising Association has told us that it will look very closely at similar advertising in the future.”

Banks added that a complaint had been lodged with ASA about a recent billboard campaign by Caged Nationwide featuring the slogan “You bet, they die” and that the GBGB would use all the legal and regulatory methods available to it to counter the stream of lies and fake news peddled by anti-greyhound racing groups.

" Greyhounds are property.It is the prerogative of any owner to dispose of his/her greyhound providing it is done in a humane way. End of!! ".
Here is one of many of the GBGB (Greyhound Board of Great Britain) discaplinary hearings.
January 2018..Mr.Alan Winsper, registerd owner of greyhound REVERSE BACKWARDS uneccesarily euthanased at Monmore Green greyhound stadium.
Rest in eternal peace dear greyhound..your only fault..you were unfortunate to have been born a greyhound.
A long read but the hearing is listed below:
2 Monmore Green Stadium
– REVERSE BACKWAYS –
Registered Owner
Mr A Winsper
Registered owner Mr Alan Winsper
was found in breach of Rules 2,
18 (i) and 152 (i) and (ii) in that he
unnecessarily caused the greyhound
REVERSE BACKWAYS to be
euthanased at Monmore Stadium on
21 April 2017.
Mr Alan Winsper and Mr Pete
Rosney, Stipendiary Steward, and
Mr Thomas Faulkner, Assistant
Trainer, were in attendance. Mr Nigel
Walpole, veterinary surgeon, and Mr
Paul Webster, Professional Trainer,
gave evidence by telephone.
The Committee heard that a local
enquiry had been held by Stipendiary
Steward Pete Rosney on 14 August
2017 into the circumstances in
which the greyhound REVERSE
BACKWAYS had been euthanased at
Monmore Green Stadium on 21 April
2017. The greyhound had been put
to sleep by the track vet, Mr Nigel
Walpole, at the request of Registered
Owner Mr Alan Winsper, acting on
behalf of the owner, the Hughes
Corporation syndicate.
The Manager for Integrity and
Welfare Services, Duncan Gibson,
told the Committee that Mr Winsper,
although claiming at the local inquiry
to be a member, was not registered
as the person nominated by the
syndicate to be responsible for all
matters as the Owner for the Hughes
Corporation syndicate under the
GBGB Rules of Racing. Mr Gibson
also told the Committee that the
Hughes Syndicate had not appointed
and registered Mr Winsper as its
Authorised Agent, empowering him
to act for it, as it could do under Rule
14. However, in a letter to Mr Gibson
from the syndicate’s nominated
person, Ms Carol Ann Hughes, she
had written that Mr Winsper had at
all times been authorised to act in all
matters regarding any of “my or my
family’s” greyhounds.
The local inquiry established that
REVERSE BACKWAYS had been put
to sleep at Monmore Green Stadium
by the track vet, Mr Nigel Walpole,
at the request of Mr Winsper, a
4 VOL 10 NO 2 26 JANUARY 2018
former licensed Greyhound Trainer,
after the greyhound had run poorly,
finishing last in an S4 contest with a
calculated time more than a second
slower than its best previous effort
over the distance three weeks
earlier. The officiating Deputy Racing
Manager at Monmore Green, Mr Paul
Johnson, had asked that the track
vet check REVERSE BACKWAYS
and another greyhound that had run
poorly, TARANIS BEAR.
Mr Walpole’s entry for REVERSE
BACKWAYS in the track vet’s diary
recorded only “tooth infection”. In
a statement to the local inquiry, Mr
Walpole said the greyhound had
been euthanased following a series
of poor races in which it had checked
on the bends. He said that he
recorded “tooth infection” because
Mr Tom Faulkner, the Assistant
Trainer at Mr Mel Baker’s kennels
responsible for the greyhound that
evening, had told him the greyhound
was head shy because of painful
teeth which may be affecting his
performance, but that the teeth
had looked in reasonable condition
to him. However, in a letter to
the GBGB dated 1 January 2018
Mr Walpole acknowledged that
REVERSE BACKWAYS had been
given dental treatment by his practice
2 months before.
Contradicting Mr Walpole, in his
statement to the local inquiry Mr
Faulkner said that before he was
asked to take REVERSE BACKWAYS
to the vet for examination he had
noticed blood in the greyhound’s
gums where its teeth had gone
rotten. He had gone to Mr Walpole to
ask him to look at the teeth and Mr
Walpole had agreed it would be best
to take the teeth out. Mr Faulkner
said he then spoke to Mr Winsper
who said the teeth had already been
looked at by Mr Walpole’s veterinary
partner, Mr Tom Bingham, who had
said they just needed a good clean.
Mr Winsper had asked if Mr Faulkner
noticed REVERSE BACKWAYS would
not run in front of the crowd and had
said the greyhound would not be any
good if he could not run in front of
crowds.
Mr Faulkner stated that in the vet’s
room Mr Winsper had said to him it
might be better to put the greyhound
to sleep because it was nervous.
Mr Faulkner said he responded that
they should send the greyhound to
run at Perry Barr, as they did not get
crowds at the BAGS meetings there.
Mr Winsper had replied that it would
be unfair to give a nervous dog to
another trainer. Mr Faulkner said he
had left REVERSE BACKWAYS with
Mr Winsper and the vet. When he
returned to the vet’s room later, the
greyhound had been put to sleep.
Stipendiary Steward Pete Rosney
told the Committee it was most
unusual for a greyhound to be
euthanased at the race track for
no reason other than that it was
considered unsuitable for rehoming.
He had never come across this
happening before. Usually a
decision that a greyhound should
be euthanased because there was
no other option would be taken after
consideration over a period of time.
In his evidence to the local inquiry,
Mr Winsper said he had bought the
greyhound dog in January 2017
for £100 from Mr Paul Webster, a
Professional Trainer attached to
Belle Vue Stadium, after being told
it was for sale and watching it race.
Mr Faulkner had kept him updated
about the greyhound after it went
to Mr Mel Baker’s kennels. He said
he was told the greyhound cowered
away from people and that its mental
state was “questionable”. It was
clear it was “a difficult dog” and
“unlikely to change”. He had been
aware the greyhound had a hole in
one of its teeth, but that this was
all that needed looking at. He said
that on 21 April 2017 he had asked
Mr Walpole to “check the dog out”,
not for its teeth but because it had
run badly. He said he had explained
the greyhound was “skittish” and
appeared to have “a mental phobia”,
that it was “a danger to others” and
that he thought the best course was
to put it to sleep.
In his evidence to the Committee,
Mr Faulkner explained he did not
work day-to-day running the block
where REVERSE BACKWAYS was
kept but he had regular contact
with the greyhound and had been
aware of how it was behaving. He
said the greyhound’s teeth must
have been neglected before it came
to the kennels, where it was given
dental treatment some 26 days after
arriving. One tooth had decayed
right the way through and the other
about 75% through. The greyhound
suffered distress from its teeth. They
were sore and there was bleeding.
This had continued after the dental
treatment that had been given by
the Walpole and Bingham veterinary
practice on 23 February 2017. Food
got stuck in its teeth.
Mr Faulkner said that the greyhound
would cower away from people and
animals, acting as if spooked. It could
not be walked. He said it had never
been aggressive towards him but he
was told it had nipped kennelhands,
although it had never actually bitten
them. He said that when he had
returned to the vet’s room on 6
October 2017 he had been shocked
that the greyhound had been put
to sleep, although he had not, he
said, been disappointed or upset.
REVERSE BACKWAYS was not a
greyhound that he would want to
re-home. It had been unpredictable.
There was no reason, he said, why
it would not snap at children or run
away from an old person who would
not be able to catch it.
Mr Faulkner’s description of
REVERSE BACKWAYS was startlingly
different from the description of
the same greyhound given by
its previous owner, Professional
Trainer Paul Webster, both to the
local inquiry and to the Committee.
He said that at his kennels the
greyhound had been kennelled
unmuzzled with a bitch. It was a nice,
straightforward greyhound with one
quirky characteristic, that it always
came out backwards when taken
from its kennel (hence its name). It
didn’t cower away. It showed no
fear or phobias towards humans
or other dogs; quite the opposite.
It displayed no tendency to bite
anyone. Mr Webster accepted that
greyhounds could change when they
go from one kennel to another. He
could not rule it out but he repeated
to the Committee that he would be
surprised if it happened in the case of
REVERSE BACKWAYS. Mr Webster
had not been aware of any problem
with the greyhound’s teeth. Nothing
had been noted by the track vet at
Belle Vue Stadium. As for racing in
front of people, Mr Webster had seen
no indication of a problem but the
greyhound had mainly run at BAGS
meetings without many spectators.
Mr Winsper told the Committee his
information about the greyhound
and its nature and behaviour had
come from Mr Faulkner. He said Mr
Faulkner told him before the race
on 21 April 2017 and on previous
occasions that it had “gone for”
people, even if it had not bitten them.
He believed it had a mental condition
which made it unhomeable. He could
not take the risk that it would be
aggressive to a new carer. It would
not settle in any other kennel. He did
not consider that placing it in another
kennel was an acceptable life for the
greyhound.
Mr Winsper told the Committee that
he had explained to Mr Walpole that
he thought the greyhound should be
put to sleep because it had a mental
condition that made it dangerous.
CALENDAR 5
He said he had asked Mr Walpole
for advice on whether it should be
euthanased.
Mr Walpole gave evidence by
telephone from Monmore Green
Stadium. He said the event was now
some time ago and he could not be
sure he had been given any reason
why the greyhound should be put to
sleep. Owners often gave no reason
and he would not always ask. He
was as certain as he could be that
he was not asked to give advice on
whether the greyhound should be
put to sleep. He was as certain as
he could be that he had not given Mr
Winsper any advice. He thought the
reason he was given for euthanasing
REVERSE BACKWAYS was that Mr
WInsper was disappointed with the
greyhound’s form: that it had been
running inconsistently and that this
was down to its temperament.
The Committee noted there were
inconsistencies and contradictions
in the evidence from Mr Winsper,
Mr Faulkner and Mr Walpole as to
what happened on 21 April 2017,
what was said by whom when
the greyhound was taken to Mr
Walpole, when Mr Faulkner was in
the vet’s room and when Mr Winsper
was in the vet’s room. What was
uncontradicted was that Mr Faulkner
did not suggest the greyhound
should be put to sleep or state why
it should be put to sleep and that he
was shocked when he discovered
this had happened. The Committee
also found it telling that Mr Faulkner’s
evidence to the local inquiry was that
Mr Winsper had said that putting the
greyhound to sleep might be best
because it was “nervous” and that
Mr Faulkner did not agree with this
but suggested it run at Perry Barr.
This exchange strongly supported
the conclusion that the real reason
Mr Winsper considered it was
“necessary” to have the greyhound
euthanased was not because it was
so temperamentally unsuitable that it
could not be rehomed but because it
was not a good enough prospect as
a racer.
The Committee found this was
a case where it had not been
necessary to euthanase because
none of the arrangements for the
retirement of greyhounds that Rule
18 (i) stipulated had to be followed
(including rehoming) were available.
Further dental treatment to put right
the ineffective treatment given to
REVERSE BACKWAYS in February
2017 should have been investigated.
No effective consideration was given
to how the dog could be retired in
one of the acceptable ways required
by rule 18 (i). The Committee did not
accept that Mr Winsper was right
or entitled to decide, as he said he
did, that retirement into kennels
as approved by Rule 18 (i) was
unacceptable, making it necessary
to put the greyhound to sleep. Nor
was it necessary or acceptable for
Mr Winsper to rush into having the
greyhound put to sleep immediately
after the race, without taking time for
consideration.
The Committee accordingly found
Mr Winsper in breach of rule 18
(i). It followed that he was also in
breach or Rule 2 in that he failed
on this occasion, in relation to this
greyhound, to have full regard for
the animal’s welfare, if only by failing
to investigate whether some dental
treatment, possibly straightforward
extraction, could improve any defects
in its temperament so that it could
be retired by rehoming or by another
of the options under Rule 18 (i).
Mr Winsper also failed to promote
welfare by not considering with the
trainer and/or other owners or the
vet, which he did not, the prospects
for re-homing or otherwise retiring
REVERSE BACKWAYS in accordance
with Rule 18.
The Committee also found Mr
Winsper in breach of Rule 152 (i)
and (ii) in that, on this occasion and
in relation to this greyhound, he
acted in a way which prejudiced the
integrity, proper conduct and good
reputation of greyhound racing.
Mr Winsper had made it clear that
he neither appreciated or accepted
either that what he did in having
REVERSE BACKWAYS euthanased
was wrong or why the Rules for
retirement of greyhounds were as
they are. In those circumstances, the
decision of the Committee was that
he should be disqualified for a period
of six months.

A poignant day where we remembered and highlighted the story of poor little black female greyhound Snip Nua, whose life came to a premature end on December 14th 2009 when she was destroyed after sustaining a hock injury whilst competing at Harolds Cross greyhound track, Ireland.
People were disapointed to hear that comedian Dara O Briain was associated with the industry by part owning Snip with the Foir Gael greyhound racing syndicate.
So now even more people realise how tracks are so dangerous and how greyhounds are merely the industries disposable commodities, as poor little Snip was not the first greyhound whose life was cut short because of the cruel industry and she will not be the last.

We hope the more exposures there are of the vile industry the less people will choose to support it.
All of us who rescue the industries unwanted greyhounds will know ours are some of the very lucky survivors, unlike the poor innocent greyhounds who are never saved, thousands who simply disappear and remain unacounted for and many who end up in hell holes as exposed in recent media coverage.

We had a very busy and productive morning with our stall at Harford park and ride site, car boot sale in Norwich yesterday.
A bit cold but dry and sunny and our accompanying hounds were all wrapped up well in their knitwear.
We have great support from regular local car boot goers as well as visitors from other parts of the country so we are always managing to raise awareness to more peple who can learn of our campaigning and help spread the awareness further.
We meet so many people at our events and learn a lot of useful information, not only from anti greyhound racing people but often from pro racers.
We were told yesterday that a greyhound came out of the trap at Romford stadium Saturday ( Nov 11th) and dropped DEAD on the track....we are trying to find out what caused the death of this poor greyhound.
