Hundreds of dogs are being shipped each year to race and die at China's only dog track, the Canidrome.
According to government records, a total of 378 Australian greyhounds were imported to race at the Canidrome in 2012. In the first eight months of 2013, there were 110 greyhound imports. All greyhounds sent to the track are destroyed once they fail to place in the top three of five consecutive races. There is no adoption program for the dogs, so no greyhound ever leaves the track alive.
From 2010 through 2012, the amount of revenue from greyhound racing steadily declined, from 340 million patacas to 205 million patacas, respectively. While the decline appears to have continued in 2013, this does not change the fact that no Australian dog survives the Canidrome. Once their usefulness gives way to injury or age, there is no safety net, no adoption program, and no way out for these dogs.
