Sign petition to keep dog racing out of South Africa now

Dear Friends,

We have just received word of a renewed push to bring dog racing to the country of South Africa! Please sign our petition to stop the expansion of this cruelty now.

In addition, we ask that you join with us in sending official public comments to Kenneth Mak, Director-General of the Department of Industry and Trade, who will be deciding this issue. He must receive your official comments no later than June 23, 2014. Read our letter and then please send your own to:

Director-General, Department of Trade and Industry
Attention: Mr. Nkoatse Ernest Mashamaite
Private Bag X 84
Pretoria, 0001
South Africa

Key points to make:

  • Greyhound racing is a dying industry worldwide
  • Thousands of greyhounds suffer serious injuries and some also die while racing
  • Many healthy dogs are also killed once their usefulness ends
  • When not racing, greyhounds are confined in small cages for at least 20 hours a day
  • The breeding of greyhounds will contribute to the challenge of placing homeless animals
  • Greyhound racing is illegal in South Africa and should remain so

Thank you to our friends at the National Council of Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) for alerting us to this situation. Together, we can prevent the suffering and deaths of gentle greyhounds, but we must act now.

Please sign our petition and send your e-mail today.

Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.
