UPDATE...Freeda and Berty...two of the hundreds of Canidrome Greyhound survivors who came into the care of AfG 16.02.19
Their 1st photos published on here were taken 19.02.19, The photos below were taken on 04.03.19 just 16 days after arriving ,with already a marked improvement.
Both settled together happily in their foster home when they arrived, which was incredible, bearing in mind this was the first time they had ever been in a family home.
Both were examined by our vet on 21st Feb both with health problems, with Bertys being more serious, with need for blood tests and medication.
His damaged tip of tail cannot yet be operated on until it develops adequate muscle so has to be bandaged daily.
With the expert care and dedication of their foster carers, both are improving on a daily basis.
Both have now been neutered and received dental treatment.
Their next vet visit is tomorrow, so further updates on their progress will be featured here again soon.

Action for Greyhounds

Sickening statistics released for the first time this week confirm that greyhounds suffered injuries and were killed by vets at ALL of Ireland’s 16 greyhound tracks last year.

Agriculture Minister Michael Creed had previously revealed that a total of 353 greyhounds were reported injured and 121 were destroyed by track vets in 2018 but these new stats provide a track-by-track breakdown of the figures for the year.

Provided to Clare Daly TD, further to a Dail Question, the Irish Greyhound Board data shows that Limerick stadium (headquarters of the IGB) recorded the highest number of greyhound injuries (58), followed by Shelbourne Park (41), Galway stadium (31), Curraheen Park (28), Tralee (29), Mullingar (27) and Enniscorthy (27) - see full list below.

The worst track for greyhounds “put to sleep by vet at track” was Limerick stadium (15 greyhounds killed), followed by Mullingar (13), Curraheen Park (13), Shelbourne Park (12) and Tralee (10).

Regarding the percentage of injured greyhounds killed, the worst track was Thurles (67% of injured dogs were killed), followed by Waterford (64% killed), Dundalk (55%), Lifford (54%), Newbridge (50%) and Mullingar (48%).

The Irish Greyhound Board stats include a breakdown of the 353 injuries suffered by greyhounds: hock 120, muscle 63, front leg 39, wrist 32, wound/spike 25, shoulder/neck/stifle 24, back leg 15, toe 9, back/tail 6, metacarpal 5, metatarsal 4, no visible injury 9. Dogs also died from “suspected heart attack” - one at Curraheen Park on 29th June and another on 4th May at Clonmel track.

The 2018 figures bring to 1,559 the number of greyhounds injured and 506 the number of greyhounds killed at Irish tracks in the past four years alone.

They are based on "reported" injuries and deaths, suggesting that the actual number could be even higher. They do not include the greyhounds injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands of greyhounds who go missing each year - presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races.

It is time for the government to bring the cruel greyhound industry to an end by stopping the millions of euros in funding that is keeping it afloat. Over a quarter of a billion euros of taxpayers' money has been handed over to greyhound racing since 2001, including €16.8 million for 2019.

ACTION ALERT

Don't attend greyhound races or fundraisers/hen parties/office parties held at greyhound tracks.

Join us in an appeal to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe to stop funding the cruel greyhound industry.

These poor gentle animals are treated so badly. I should be banned along with horse racing like Ruthie Mckay said.

Vile cruel evil murder in the name of sport? By vile evil low life.

Dog Racing should be banned and Horse Racing! ๐Ÿ˜ก

This must be stopped, it is sickening these gentle dogs are suffering for humans to gain money.

These poor, gentle dogs SUFFERING, RACING TO THEIR DEATH! FOR GREEDY MONSTERS!

So very sad poor dogs all greyhound racing should be banned now!

Bleeding humans!

Bloody shocking poor dogs it should be baned

Ennis dog pound killed over 300 healthy greyhounds and nobody did a thing

Poor.creatures!!!!!!!

I thought greyhound racing was banned? We definitely need stronger animal welfare laws.

Much harsher laws need to be introduced in the mistreatment of greyhounds like this.

Another EVIL of MAN

Please kind to these beautiful dogs. They are not machines. Racing should be closely monitored to ensure no animal is mistreated. Where is the Racing Board? What do they do to improve standards?

Never occurred to.me that the dogs could be injured in the races, dreadful statistics

it's legal animal abuse - nothing else

Sending prayers for these babies

Ban all greyhound racing & horse racing this needs to end

Stop this so sad.xxx

This is appualing. A friend has taken in 3 ex racing dogs and they are so loving and gentle. She even takes one into work to cheer up the elderly residents and they love her. So so sad when will this stop.SOON PLEASE FOR GOOD

that is dreadful and should,nt be happening

Sending prayers for these babies

And what have they got to say for themselves ????

Stop doing this now

Stop it, the same happens to race horses.

Pure EVIL

The more I read the more I hate humans!

Galgos dogs get the worst deal of all! Beyond sickening and I am glad it is finally going out on sites such as Facebook so at least people will be finally aware๐Ÿ˜ž

This is terrible, must be stopped.

Some people are so twisted and have nocompassion!

Jean Jarvis .I entirely agree with you.

Typical Spaniards! Cruel nation.

Unfortunately this has been going on for many (far too many!) years. ๐Ÿ˜ก

Well it’s about time the Spanish legislated to protect animals.

Barbaric / Heinous - how people can be so callous & vile is beyond belief ๐Ÿ˜ข

This is not a third world contry so no excuse for such crulty

Evil vile monsters ๐Ÿ˜ˆ how can they do this ๐Ÿ˜ˆ morons should be stopped ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Action for Greyhounds

Forced into the traps even though she is putting up so much resistance, this is how much Greyhounds enjoy racing!!

Greyt Exploitations
Legalised animal abuse!
Yesterday in an interview with BBC Politics Live – GBGB MD Mark Bird stated “The dogs really do enjoy the sport – that’s what they’ve been bred for ultimately” Today - two year old American Pharoah showed exactly what she thought of being shoved into the traps but despite her protests – she clearly didn’t receive any level of “care or respect”!

Cruel, cruel, cruel! Poor innocent baby.

I find this totally uneccessary & disgusting. I worked in kennels for many years & worked along side a Greyhound rescue. Greyhounds love to run & i believe that some love to race but for those who dont & are forced to, is totally disgusting. If they find those starting boxes terrifying & chlostaphoebic, they should not be forced. Greyhounds are very sensitive, lovable & amazingly beautiful dogs & if they dont want to race then they should be allowed to just ' be ' . Greyhounds love nothing better than just lazing around on the couch & running around a field, all 4 lankey legs enjoying themselves but not to be forced to race just because this is what they are 'so called' supposed to be doing. There are some bad people out there forcing these beautiful animals to race & it angers me so much. I have looked after ex racers who have been loved & they have loved racing but not all are so lucky & are abused & end up traumatised & in need of years of love, care & attention. A terrified & traumatised greyhound could not be any further away from their caring & loving nature. These dogs dont have a bad bone in their body & sometimes that can go against them. These bad people who put these beautiful dogs through hell & back need to be found & charged with animal abuse & stopped from ever keeping Greyhounds or animals ever again. Anyone who has Greyhounds will know how stunningly beautiful & trusting they are & need to be treated with love & respect, not like a piece of meat. An abused & overworked racing greyhound is an unhappy, scared & lifeless animal & this needs to be stopped. I urge people who are looking to rehome a rescue dog to please give a rescue greyhound a loving home. People automatically think they need alot of exercise but this is not the case. Please give a rescue greyhound a home & they will love you uncondtionally & be a beautiful addition to your family with a ton of love, trust & lots of cuddles. ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโค

My beautiful, gentle non-runner greyhound Oscar will not walk through a door that is slightly open, he will not use his nose to open said door. I laugh and smile at him as I hold the doors open for him wondering why he is as he is, bless him. I swear though that he must have had bad experiences when they were trying to get him to chase the hare. He is now nearly 13 years of age and lucky that he was rescued and rehomed. I doubt that he has forgotten the trials and tribulations of his early life. I know nothing of his previous life as a pup, learning to race or as a young dog..... All that I know is that I love him dearly.

Did that poor hound recover......sickening to watch them shove the poor hound into a place it clearly was terrified to enter.

In this world money often comes before animals welfare. Take a look around. The world is full of greedy basta##s. This so called sport needs to be banned, the same as fox hunting. Keep up with the petitions.

What planet does this fellow come from the grey is obviously not wanting to run and how many are hurt just for the sake of some greedy owners and so called fans

they love it that much the poor babies have to be forced into that cage ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌhang every single one of the humans responsible!!!!

Utterly disgusting. ๐Ÿ˜ก The poor, poor dog must have been terrified. They love to run, not to race.

I hate these people and their vile industry

Poor dog!!!!! Ur evil to make it do this money grabbing scum!!!!!!

Action for Greyhounds

Greyhound racing is in steady decline worldwide.

Ban Bloodsports
More bad news for the dying greyhound industry as a review commissioned by the Irish Greyhound Board is expected to recommend the closure of a number of financially unviable venues.

Among the tracks that could be shut is loss-making Longford stadium, from where RTE Radio’s Morning Ireland reported yesterday (27 February).

Introducing the report, Morning Ireland’s Pauric Lodge said: “rising costs and falling attendances have made it increasingly difficult to keep the stadium open.”

“Our bills are very high - you're looking at €5,000 a year for insurance, €10,000 a year for insurance costs and that's before you take any of the normal running costs of a stadium,” a Longford track director told listeners.

Asked how many people attend, he said that "at this time of year, you're probably looking at probably 30-40 people paying in” and that the majority of people in attendance are “probably owners who have dogs running or who have come with dogs for trials”.

He admitted that the track continues to be loss-making - “Two years ago, it was on the brink of [closure]...We raised money from donations. We raised what we thought was a year's money but it has actually been enough to keep us going for two years. The track is running at less of a loss than it was but it is still running at a loss."

A track regular who was interviewed, estimated that “on a normal night”, just 30 people pay to get in - “There would be about 10 paying the €8 and the other 20 would be pensioners.” He also said that there were no young people coming in.

Taxpayers’ money is helping to keep Longford track afloat. Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has previously stated that the Longford track, which is privately owned by a Scottish businessman, is “in receipt of annual operating grants of €40,000 along with grant assistance towards operating costs, specifically veterinary fees”.

Since 2001, greyhound racing has received over a quarter of a billion euros of government funding, including €16.8 million for 2019 - an increase of €800,000 euro over the 2018 figure.

In a statement last week, the Irish Greyhound Owners and Breeders Federation acknowledged that “the Irish greyhound industry would not last a week if the Horse and Greyhound fund was withdrawn”.

The CEO of the Irish Greyhound Board has previously hinted at more track closures, saying "16 licensed greyhound stadia is a big amount for what might be seen as a small country. And when you take into account the improvements in motorway infrastructure, a lot of these stadia a number of decades ago would have been very far apart whereas now they're all very accessible..."

Two tracks have closed in the past two years - Harold’s Cross stadium in Dublin (February 2017) and Drumbo Park track in Lisburn (January 2019). A third, LIfford track, is up for sale.

Dogs suffer and die at Longford track - over the past four years alone, 51 greyhounds have been reported injured there and 22 were killed by a track vet. At tracks around Ireland, 1,559 greyhounds suffered injuries and 506 were killed in the same period. The Irish Greyhound Board figures are based on "reported" injuries and deaths, suggesting that the actual number could be even higher. They do not include the greyhounds injured at tracks and later killed elsewhere, or the thousands of greyhounds who go missing each year - presumed killed when found to be too slow to win races.

Lisa Morris-Tomkins, CEO of the Greyhound Trust ( the industrys rehoming body,previously named the Retired Greyhound Trust..RGT) dares to expose some truths on a new Greyhound Trust information leaflet, only to be under attack from the industry.
They really do not like the truth being ' out there' do they!!
A petition has even been drawn up by pro racers sugesting Lisa be removed from the trust.Here is an extract from the leaflet which seems to have the industry angered and worried:
The Great Greyhound Build:
โ€œIt is said the ones we love never truly leave us. But what about the ones that were never truly loved?
This sacred place will remember the racing greyhounds who never made it home.
The ones who never got a chance to grow old and grey in the arms of a best friend
The greyhounds who were not helped in the comfort of a loved one as they drew their final breaths
Itโ€™s why this special place is so very important. Because with your help, we wonโ€™t rest until every greyhound gets their very own chance to go home.โ€

Leaflet:
Greyhounds need โ€œmore safe places to goโ€ and โ€œgreyhound have limited and sometimes lonely livesโ€ฆfrom the kennel to the track and backโ€

UPDATE: Canidrome Greyhound survivors Freedom ( Freeda) and Liberty ( Berty) getting very settled together in their amazing foster home after much rest and many nourishing meals quiet walks and steady introductions to the other resident animals the goats, Polo and Scarlet and the chickens.
They have had free exercise in the garden and paddock today but showed no interest in racing around yet, just checking out their new surroundings.
They are both underweight and have bald rear ends and chests and several calluses, sores and scars but dear Berty has not fared well as you can see.
His bottom and small side teeth are worn down to his gums and his top and canine teeth are broken and worn down all covered in plaque his nails are overgrown and he is in a generaly neglected state
He is ravenous and always on the look out for food and demolishes his meals at speed.
Both are booked for their vet check on Thursday which will determine any health issues etc we need to be concerned about.
To date, Afg have not ever taken in a healthy fit Greyhound and beleive it or not we have taken in several in a far worse state than Berty.

I have a ex racing greyhound, she wandered down our drive followed by her owner, half an hour later she was mine. I didn’t really want another dog but what can you do, she needed a home. Iv had her 8 years now, she is one of the lucky ones.

I had a lurcher who was bald on her back legs when we adopted her from Brysons they told me to give her some form of tablet that didnt work, but when she was well settled with us and given plenty of loving care her coat grew back in.

Before July 2018 when the deadly Canidrome track closed for good, these Greyhounds along with hundreds of others lucky enough to survive, led an isolated, institutionalised life of neglect.
They can now put it all behind them and enjoy what we hope to be many years of love, comfort,respect and adventure ahead of them.

Looks like the end of another British Greyhound track is near. About time too, Belle View stadium has been in operation since 1926 when the first commercial Greyhound races were held in Britain on July 24th.
Again it is of great concern what will happen to the ' redundant' Greyhounds, we can only hope owners and trainers will have the long term safety and welfare of their Greyhounds as thier TOP priority.Belle Vue staff made redundant as the track makes plans for closing (y)

Very sad. Just hope the dogs will be well cared for. These beautiful animals deserve kind, loving homes and are no longer treated like machines.

Earlier this year AfG were made aware of a Lurcher being kept in a neglected state, chained in a ramshackle building. Later we were given a photo of the poor hound by a lady who was giving him food.
The lady was told " the dog was no good and unwanted and if she kept feeding him, she would have to take him".
She was not in a position to keep the hound, so arrangements were made for him to come to the care of AfG.
We first met this poor hound on June 21st which was the eve of the Summer Solstice which is how he was named Soli.
Over the weeks which followed in foster care, Soli slowly developed into the stunning hound he is today.
Shown here, the 1st photo is the one we were given which made us realise we had to take steps to save him, the 2nd photo is a current one.

Another hound to come into AfGs care in October was little Oci, he was in the ' death row' section at a Romanian pound we were led to believe ( due to misinformation being circulated) that he was a male black Greyhound age 8. We had a foster home available so arrangements were made with a very dedicated Romanian rescue ' Happy Tails' to save him and get him here to his new life.We were very surprised when this little chap arrived ( obviously no Greyhound in him at all !!) never the less he did not deserve to be destroyed and purely by fate he came to AfG.
He was named Oci as he arrived to his foster home 1st October 2018 this delightfull little hound is so easy to fall in love with and he was quickly adopted by his foster dad.
This photo of dear Oci was taken today

This dear little Sighthound estimated at 18 months of age , is the latest needy hound to come into the care of Afg.
Thoroughly neglected and with an uncertain future in Romainia with no body fat on her tiny frame to survive much longer.
She now has a name...Blossom... and is settling in nicely with her very experienced, dedicated foster family with the company of 2 other rescued Sighthounds who are also helping her gain confidence daily and learn how to become a much loved member of the family and to experience, love, comfort, respect, happiness and adventure possibly for the first time in her life.
These photos were taken at her vet visit when she arrived to Afg.

Our last awareness/fundraising event for 2018 December 23rd at Jollyes Pet superstore, Norwich.
A grim drizzly day but very busy and due to the fantastic support of the management we were allocated a great place inside the store for the day to accommodate our accomanying hounds.
Fantastic support from the public and another chance to allow people to learn what amazing dogs Greyhounds are.
We were joined by foster Lurcher Soli who is still seeking his forever home and he very much enjoyed the day receiving ots of cuddles and loads of treats.
Also in the morning little Romanian rescue boy Oci, joined us.
Oci arrived in the care of Afg in October, he was on the ' Death Row' section in a Romanian shelter, due to some ' cross wires', we were led to believe he was an 8 year old black male Greyhound so we were very surprised when the little black and tan possibly Doberman/Terrier arrived.
A happy ending for Oci who is now adopted by his foster carer.

AfG had a very busy successful stall at the Norwich Vegan Fair December 16th at the amazing venue, St Andrews Hall, organised by Shena and friends from Pudz Animal Sanctuary, Lincolnshire.
It is so encouraging to see how Shenas and other vegan events are growing in support and popularity countrywide.
What a great way to spend a day in such a great atmosphere and among so many great people and see so many stalls highlighyting so many animal welfare/animal rights issues and promoting a cruelty free lifestyle.
Needless to say our accompanying rescued hounds were kept busy all day receiving constant fuss from visitors.

Kennels now taken over by Celia Cross Greyhound Rescue, this dreadful place was until recently a licenced racing Greyhound kennels, passed as acceptable housing for racing Greyhounds by the GBGB (Greyhound Board of Great Britain) the self governed industry governing body...how many more kennels have they passed as suitable !? this will surely not be an isolated case.

CELIA CROSS GREYHOUND TRUST
๐Ÿคข๐ŸคขJust one of the blocks of kennels.
This was an active working greyhound racing kennels up until the weekend, when they moved to new premises after allowing this kennels that was refurbished in 2012 get into squalid disrepair.
Tony Taylor & the GBGB you should be ashamed of yourselves.
The land and Kennels is now under ownership of CCGT. NEVER will any hound suffer these condition on this site again.
We are just devastated for other hounds that may be housed in similar conditions all over the country.

People wouldnt live in these conditions

Absolutely terrible cruelty poor greyhounds they do not deserve this treatment xxmaryxx

Rspca prosecute them.

Absoluty shocking conditions they need locking away

OMG this place is disgusting. Thank you for taking it over and changing it.

I bet it’s like local councils ,all dodgy handshakes and a fat brown envelope handed over ,money talks ๐Ÿ˜ก

How sad that people who race greyhounds would expect them to live like this . These kennels should be randomly checked by a governing body that has nothing to do with racing or better still ban all racing that effects animals

They moved to new premises?

What a disgusting mess to think people can allow this yo happen it's a disgrace

sad hope they pay for their uncaring

Disgusting surely the RSPCA have not seen this if so sack the lot

Makes me so angry , how can they possibly pass a place like that ! Absolutely disgusting

Why are people so cruel ...???

Where was this?

That's awfull how did they pass a place like that

Omg, my heart breaks ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

Disgusting! Where is the RSPCA? Although I don't agree with horse racing, at least they have good living conditions and are treated well.

That’s horrific conditions... poor babies ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

We were joined for a short while today by 2 new AfG foster hounds Oci and Pearl with their foster carers
It is great to be able to show so many people just what wonderful dogs Greyhounds and other Sighthounds are.
As well as receiving an awareness leaflet, youngsters also are given one of AfGs awareness button badges allowing them to raise further awareness when they wear them, so important to educate the younger generation.
