IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY WE SHOULD ALL BOYCOTT CHINESE MANUFACTURED GOODS....JUST OPEN THE LINKS IN THIS!
NO TO IRISH GREYHOUND EXPORTS TO CHINA DEMO!
Sat 19th March 1 -2pm at the Spire, O Connell Street, Dublin.
GREYHOUND ACTION IRELAND is sickened and appalled that the Irish Greyhound board, Bord na gCon has planned to send Irish greyhounds to China to expand Greyhound Racing in Asia.
Already much criticized for their overbreeding of Greyhound dogs and for their total disregard for the welfare of ex-racing dogs here in Ireland, this latest move is shamefull .
This move confirms what we have been saying all along …the IGB couldn’t care less about the tens of thousands of Irish dogs they breed to die. Greyhounds in Ireland have been found mutilated, with ears cut off, drugged, hanged, drowned and killed by bolt gun in backstreet slaughterhouses. A minute percentage get homes here as will not be the case in China.
In the aftermath of Chinese officials visiting Dublin earlier this month to see how the Irish greyhound-racing industry is run and regulated. An IGB spokesman said the board informed the Department of Agriculture, which regulates the transport of greyhounds, about its expansion plans.
“As with any country we do not have any influence on the welfare standards adopted in other countries, and these matters are more appropriately dealt with by the country’s own legislative system,” the spokesman said. The export of greyhounds was a matter for individuals and Bord na gCon, said the Department of Agriculture. “The board has informed us that they are exploring the possibility of assisting with the establishment of greyhound racing in China,” it said.
We in GAI say, ‘Imagine sending animals to a country where they will be treated even worse than they are here, dogs in China are considered meat, many beaten brutally to tenderise their meat before they are often skinned alive. Cats and dogs there have absolutely no protection from those who will breed and kill them at will be it for food or fur. Irish dogs are already being sold on to Pakistanis for racing and coursing there. Pakistan, being a Moslem country where dogs are considered unclean is the last place on earth where anyone would send an animal.’
DOGS IN CHINA;
CAUTION: The photos from the site are distressing and the eye account witness of slaughter is horrifying
"space city" and is capital city of the Liangshan Yi Nationality Autonomous Prefectures in southwestern Sichuan Province, Peoples Republic of China. These are pictures of a market area on an embankment above the river in the old part of town. At the front there are puppies and kittens for sale as pets and further back are about 100 dog waiting to be selected by customers. When selected the vendor puts the dog in a sack and weighs it. After a price is agreed he kills his dog and butchers it ( sometimes in that order, more often in the reverse order). Business was brisk with a dog being killed about every five minutes. There seemed to be two techniques.
The one man technique was to hit the dog twice on the head with a wooden plank which dazed it sufficiently to make it safe for him plunge his knife into its jugular without getting bitten. He then held the dog up by the tail until it bled into unconsciousness-he then proceeded to butcher it with the dog coming in and out of consciousness.
With the two man technique, one man held the dog up by her tail while the other pulled the neck back with a wire around the dogs neck. The first man was then able to reach down again without fear of being bitten, to sever the jugular vein. Since the dog was in no way stunned, she struggled and howled and urinated until passing out. The watching dogs were also shaking and howling. The dog was flung on her back and the butchering began- consciousness returned on lying flat but she was to weak then to struggle much. One of the men laid down his knife and put his mouth to the inside of the dog' s hind leg-I couldn't see what he was doing.
GREYHOUND ACTION appeals to the IGB to review its ill- considered plans to make money from dog exports to China. We will be urging the public to shun the tracks here in Ireland and we will expose the hypocrisy of Irish Greyhound Breeders and Trainers.
‘This will be the nail in B nag Cons coffin!!!! We are constantly being told when leafleting at dog tracks that there are many ‘good’ greyhound men, If this rare breed exists ,they should stand up in opposition to this’ last straw’ of animal abuse. Any feeling human would.
It is blatantly clear, the Irish Greyhound Bord do not give a damn about animals! ‘
Bernie Wright, press officer GAI.
•PHOTOSHOOT; We anticipate a large turnout and some ex-raced, now cherished Greyhounds.

Well, it's nearly Christmas.....AGAIN! Usually I use this site, primarily, to rant and rave about all that seems unfair and cruel in the rescue world of animals. However, I want to take a little time to thank all those volunteers who have worked tirelessly, silently and freely to rescue animals this past year. Lisa...who is always desperately searching for places for those dogs left at the pounds by other rescues (mainly Staffords and Rotties), Jeff, who is currently en route to Somerset with yet more pound dogs and who drove, 2 days ago, through blizzards from Wales to Coventry and Crewe to secure places for 3 more dogs at risk. Eileen who, even though nursing her husband and elderly mother, will still answer the 'phone and be on hand to collect/deliver animals. Lisa (number 2!) who, although working full time, still secures places of safety for the pound dogs. Pauline and Tim who will drop everything to move dogs out of danger. Glenys....who has also been running around saving cats and dogs and who, sadly, has just written her car off in a nasty accident on ice in North Wales.....there are many, many more..Bev, Trudie, Syvia, Sue, Rosemary.....all have spent sleepless nights and put in tremendous efforts to save the animals...THANK YOU....FROM THE ANIMALS AND ME. If anyone reading this, wins the lottery and doesn't know what to do with the money....get in touch and I will gladly pass on these wonderful peoples' details....all give their time absolutely free....so, no moans today (although we are trying to get up north to help more desperate dogs today and tomorrow....anyone with a big van..who could help transport...please make contact 01559 362990).
A Happy, peaceful Christmas to you all ..... and fingers crossed for those little souls still left in the pounds of Wales....many without heating! we will do our best to free you XX.

SO WEIRD. TONIGHT (23/10/10) HAD ONE STAFFY X BOY TO MOVE FROM TOWER BRIDGE TO READING. OWNER MOVING SAME DAY AND THREATENED TO PUT OUT ON THE STREET. I RANG 3 'SO CALLED' FRIENDS/ANIMAL PEOPLE....EACH ONE SAID THEY WERE 'BUSY' WATCHING X FACTOR???????
WHAT A BLOODY SAD INDICTMENT OF OUR TIMES WHEN A CRAP TV SHOW RULES PEOPLES LIVES. NOT SURE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE DOG...STILL TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN THAT DOES NOT PUT X FACTOR BEFORE LIFE BUT..........TIME IS RUNNING OUT.
REALLY HOPE THAT ALL THESE 'PEOPLE'...END UP IN HOMES WHERE, WHEN THEY ASK FOR HELP, ARE TOLD "SORRY...WE'RE WATCHING X FACTOR"
ALL THE YEARS I HAVE SPENT IN RESCUE....THE PROBLEM IS NEVER THE ANIMALS...IT IS PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO BACKBONE, NO COMMITTMENT, NO LOYALTY....HOPE WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND...AND ONE DAY THEY ARE TREATED WITH THE SAME LETHARGIC 'COULDN'T CARE LESS ATTITUDE'.
HOPE THIS BOY IS OKAY...BUT DOUBT IT. I COULD HAVE HELPED HIM...HAD A LIFT FROM READING TO WALES...BUT HEY...SEEMS XFACTOR MORE IMPORTANT! SAD, SELFISH PEOPLE..

Tonight I realise that, with age, comes compassion. With age (and understanding) comes realisation that we cannot understand nor change, the policies that other people truly believe in. HOWEVER, KILLING BADGERS IN A FUTILE ATTEMPT TO STOP TB IN CATTLE...IS ONLY FOR THE IGNORANT. If badgers are murdered (culled means just this) to attempt to prove that TB is carried and passed by these creatures, and this action proves to be futile...then WHO gives lives back to these wonderful creatures? TB is not caused by badgers...and any 'intelligent' information would prove this to be true. Sadly, those baying for the blood of the badgers...are those who are ignorant of the facts. I AM NOT WILLING TO ALLOW THE MURDER OF A SPECIES....SIMPLY TO SATISFY THE IGNORANCE OF FARMERS. If a 'murderous cull' ever goes ahead then, those who have instigated this. must be prepared for the consequences.
TB IS NOT CAUSED BY BADGERS....WHY WOULD YOU KILL INNOCENT CREATURES TO PROVE YOUR POINT? AND, WHEN YOUR POINT IS NOT MADE AND CATTLE STILL CONTRACT TB....WILL YOU BRING BACK ALL GODS CREATURES THAT YOU HAVE KILLED? God save all of you...and, unlike God, I (and thousands of others) will NOT forgive you 'for you know not what you do'...YOU KNOW FULL WELL WHAT YOU ARE DOING...AND THERE WILL BE A PRICE TO PAY. Compassion and understanding. is FREE..use it. Please do not become the 'ignorant of the future'.

Have a look at this....just, slowly, losing the will to live. DOES EVERY HUMAN ON THIS PLANET COUNT THEIR WORTH IN GREED?
Tesco should (AND DO) know better but...hey...it's money!!!!! I am gradually loathing the big supermarkets who 'trade' in misery. I also am loathing ANY religion that is dictating how we kill Gods creatures.
I WOULD SUGGEST OUR GOVERNMENT....FULFULL THEIR COMMITTMENT TO ANIMALS UNDER THE ANIMAL WELFARE ACT....AND GET THESE 'MORONS' TO RETURN TO THEIR OWN BACKWARD COUNTRIES...IF THEY SERIOUSLY BELIEVE THAT ANIMALS, HAVING THEIR THROATS CUT, IS HUMANE.
PISS OFF TO WHEREVER...BUT DO NOT DARE TO MAKE OUR ANIMALS SUFFER IN THE NAME OF YOUR STUPID RELIGION.
It is now up to our government....and the voters...to adhere to the animal welfare act...and to ban any other means of slaughter.
How sad it is that, our own governments, are leading the public into a 'racist' culture...when all they need to do is implement the laws of our land...OVER EVERYBODY IN OUR LAND.

Again, really late at night posting but, a good friend of mine, who has been a significant member of our rescue team for many years, is waiting to hear if the tests she has had for cancer are positive.
This is a person who has children, grandchildren, a disabled husband, a father with cancer (who lives with her family) and still manages to take rescue cats, dogs, horses, pigs, goats, chickens, rabbits and anything that needs help into her smallholding and ensures they get the necessary care and veterinary treatment they need.
Her husband has become almost totally blind and is waiting to go to China for revolutionary laser eye treatment. These are not elderly people, they are in their forties but, should anything happen to my pal....her animals will all be at risk. Because she is waiting for her own test results her husband has had to postpone his trip to China. Her father goes into hospital tomorrow for another operation for his cancer.
I find this all draining....these are good,kind, consciencious people who care about animals, the environment and each other. Her son (who is in the army) is currently waiting to go back to Iraq. Yet still, with all this going on, she continues to help rescue animals.
YOU GUYS OUT THERE WHO ARE 'MILLIONAIRES' WHO CONSTANTLY 'COUNT' HOW MUCH YOU ARE WORTH.....PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING THOSE WHO ASK FOR NOTHING...YET DO SO MUCH. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AT:
[email protected] AND I WILL GLADLY PUT YOU DIRECTLY IN TOUCH WITH A REAL PERSON WHO GENUINLY NEEDS HELP (BUT IS TOO PROUD TO ASK FOR IT HERSELF).
If I could change places with my mate....I would...gladly. I am so sick of the cruelty, greed and self importance of those who waffle on about different 'causes' whilst doing absolutely nothing to help those, totally genuine people, who may not bless our planet with their presence for much longer.
This is not a 'media appeal'...just a cry for help for someone who so deserves it. If you care....contact me, either on the email above or 01559 362990...."better be remembered for what you do now...than what you might have done."
