Help us Close the Canidrome: #bringjackhome

Canidrome

The Canidrome is China’s only access to a legal greyhound track located in casino capital, Macau. It houses up to 730 greyhounds exported from Australia. They kill 30 each month once injured or once they have failed to win 5 races consecutively.

In the entire time that greyhounds have been racing in Macau, only 6 have left alive.

“Every single greyhound there is literally running for their lives.”¬†Housing conditions and the treatment of the dogs is so appalling at the Canidrome that dogs routinely become extremely distressed and engage in stereotypical behaviours due to stress, boredom, and lack of stimulation from being locked up in solitary confinement cells.

Below is a link to a flyer which you can print and distribute at this Sunday’s rallies and in the general community to advise people how they can help to shutdown the Canidrome.

I am an author, adjunct associate professor in psychology and have advocated for animal welfare for more than 15 years. On the basis of my extensive research, I can confidently argue that if we cultivate a culture of compassion toward all of our non-human citizens, including those currently exploited for human use (such as food, sport and experimentation), current and future generations will benefit through reduced antisocial and violent behaviour toward all sentient beings including humans. Over my 25-year career as an academic, I have published over 100 scholarly articles in refereed academic journals and have also conducted a number of projects examining the link between aggression toward humans and cruelty toward animals. In 2000, I founded a group within the Australian Psychological Society focused on promoting positive interactions between humans and animals. This work has resulted in several scholarly publications including a book published in 2012, titled Animal cruelty, Antisocial Behaviour and Aggression: More than a link.

  1. These beautiful dogs do not deserve this cruel life. Please end this insanity. Stop the export of these sensitive dogs. Give them a chance to live out there lives here where they belong.
