Join Direct Animal Action in peaceful protest outside the Silver Collar Greyhound Race, Sunday 13 June, 12-1pm at the Manukau Sports Bowl. For more details, check out our Facebook event.
This race is described by the Auckland Greyhound Racing Club as a ‘gruelling’ and ‘stamina-sapping affair,’ raced over an ‘extreme’ 779 meters, which is twice as long as a typical race.
For the dogs that reach the finals on 13 June, it’s the equivalent of a human running back-to-back marathons on consecutive weekends.
In April this year, Minister for Racing Grant Robertson and Minister responsible for animal welfare Meka Whaitiri, announced a Government review of the greyhound racing industry.
Direct Animal Action joins other animal advocacy organisations in calling for an end to greyhound racing in Aotearoa.
Join us on 13 June to oppose the cruel Silver Collar Race and to stand united for a ban on greyhound racing.
Direct Animal Action will supply all placards and banners – so just bring yourselves and some friends!
Dogs allowed but on-leash please. We will be standing next to a very busy main road.
