Protest the Silver Collar Greyhound RaceHosted by: Direct Animal Action
SAFE will be attending Direct Animal Action’s peaceful protest outside the Silver Collar Greyhound Race.
This race is described by the Auckland Greyhound Racing Club as a ‘grueling’ 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 12 June, it’s the equivalent of a human running back-to-back marathons on consecutive weekends.
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.
