Stop Cutting Open Greyhounds for Entertainment

Target: Anthony Albanese, Prime Minister of Australia

Goal: Demand Australia ban the artificial impregnation of greyhounds in favor of more humane, less invasive alternatives.

Recently, a movement to ban the artificial impregnation of greyhounds in Australia was overturned in a New South Wales animal welfare bill, despite much opposition from veterinary technicians and the public majority. This highly invasive, unnecessary, and unethical procedure—which is illegal in most countries throughout the world—is oftentimes extremely painful for dogs who undergo it. Ovulating female dogs are anesthetized, and their abdomens are cut open. The uterus is then injected with semen before being returned to the dogs’ abdomen.

In addition to the dangers of anesthetics and invasive procedures, a series of life-threatening health complications–including blood-clotting–can arise after this surgery. Still, this practice is thriving throughout Australia as a means to produce racing greyhounds, as well as other types of dog breeds like French bulldogs and pugs.

Sign this petition to demand an end to this cruel surgical procedure and to protect greyhounds under Australian law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Albanese,

There are many reasons why artificially impregnating greyhounds has been outlawed in other countries. For instance, this procedure–which is regarded as unethical by a large percentage of the vets forced to perform it–is extremely invasive. It involves anesthetizing ovulating female dogs, cutting their abdomens open, and injecting their uterus with semen. In addition to the risks from the anesthetics, dogs may suffer from a series of health conditions–such as blood-clotting–in the aftermath of the surgery.

We are asking you, Mr. Albanese, to ban this cruel practice in Australia. Our entertainment is not worth these dogs’ severe suffering.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Greyhounds are treated horribly! In Every Country! In the U.S. they are given drugs – cocaine -only to make them run faster. PLEASE STOP THIS ABUSE IN AUSTRALIA. I had a greyhound. Found him as a stray running down a country road. He was the sweetest most gentle dog and only wanted to sleep on the couch. That is why they are nicknamed “Couch Potatoes”!

  2. What is wrong with these monsters?! Why do they think it’s okay to do this horrible thing to innocent dogs? This must be stopped now. Animals are treated badly enough without something monstrous as this.

    Kill whoever is doing this.

    I hate, hate, hate animal abusers and think they should all be eradicated from this earth for the sake of all living creatures. I think that this should be done using a Karma Bat so it’ll be painful for them. Just when you think humans have come up with every way to hurt dogs, they come up with another form of torture that sickens me.

  5. Why is greyhound racing still legal?!?! I know in the US it has been banned in some states and working on shutting it down in the rest. That needs to END. The cruelty involved in greyhound racing is appalling…which leads us to this ugly practice of artificial impregnating. Ban ALL OF THIS – dogs were domesticated to be our companions, it is a horrible betrayal to make them endure this cruelty.
