Subject: Irish Greyhounds to Spain
I kindly ask Minister Simon Coveney and Adrian Neilan, IGB Chair, to intervene urgently to stop the transport of Irish Greyhounds to Spain this month and finally put an end to Greyhound exports to Spain, a country widely condemned for the abuse of sighthounds.
Thank you for signing the No Irish Greyhounds to Spain petition. You can follow the campaign on the No Irish greyhounds to Spain facebook page. Please also leave a comment on the Irish Greyhound Board's facebook page expressing your concern. You will have to hijack another post to do that as posts by 'others' do not appear on their page! The dogs are scheduled to leave Ireland for Spain on November 19th. Time is running out for these graceful, loyal hounds. They are depending on you!
To Minister Simon Coveney (Irish Department of Agriculture) and Barry Coleman (Irish Greyhound Board):
We the undersigned kindly request that you take prompt and decisive action to stop the exportation of the Irish Greyhounds, purchased at Thurles recently, currently in kennels in ireland waiting to be exported to Spain, a country with an appalling record of abuse towards sighthounds. Furthermore, we ask that you act to prevent any future export of irish greyhounds to Spain.
