Regulate and licence all retired greyhound kennel premises
We ask that the government introduce new legislation to protect formerly raced greyhounds by introducing kennel standards similar to those at boarding kennels, in order to enforce the AWA2006. We ask that you permit Local Authorities to licence and inspect all greyhound trainer retired kennels.
Greyhounds have been found in dirty dilapidated out-buildings without clean water, bedding, light or heating. No animal should be left to suffer for years in conditions that breach the AWA2006. The RSPCA are a charity relying on public donations and their resources appear to be stretched. Campaign groups and rescues are left to deal with the issue. Greyhound rescues don't have the capacity to rescue every greyhound that retires each year.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
