Eight months ago, we launched the Rescue Brooklyn campaign, joining hands with groups around the world to force China's only greyhound track to institute a greyhound adoption program. We specifically asked for the immediate release of Brooklyn, a dog our board member Charmaine Settle had seen while investigating the track.
Today, we bring you some initial good news.
Albano Martins, head of ANIMA, Macau's only animal protection society, has had several meetings with both government and track officials. Read Monday's story in the Macau Post Daily now. Albano has now asked for your help in writing to Macau's Chief Executive (President) and pressing him to force the Canidrome to start releasing dogs to his group.
The peninsula of Macau is the home of the infamous Canidrome. Hundreds of greyhounds suffer injuries and die there every year. Read our report here.
The head of Macau's animal control department has stated that every greyhound arriving at the track is dead within three years. An average of thirty new dogs arrives each month from Australia to replace them.
Don't let Brooklyn be the next victim. Your help is needed now to stop this terrible cycle of death.
Please sign our petition to Macau's Chief Executive. You may also e-mail him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or send him a letter at the address below:
Dr. Chui Sai On
Chief Executive of the Macau SAR Government
Praia Grande Avenue, Macau

This senseless activity must end. Sign our petition now and help us send a strong message to Macau's President today.
P.S. Please act now to save the greyhounds of Macau. See a new video by Australia's Greyhound Freedom and look for updates at www.RescueBrooklyn.org.
