If your circumstances don’t allow you to adopt or foster a dog, why not contact your local greyhound rescue and ask them if they could use your special skills: photography, graphic design, copywriting, accounting, dog training, printing, or anything else you have to offer.

There are private greyhound rescue and rehoming groups across Australia. These groups are run on donations and volunteer determination. They have a wealth of experience at matching the right people with the right greyhound. See contact details here.
Write a letter to the editor
Believe it or not, the ‘Letters to the editor’ page is one of the most read pages in any newspaper and politicians use it to gauge public opinion on an issue.
Also, these letters often influence what topics the newspaper covers. As a newspaper only has limited space, not all letters are published. However, the more letters received on a particular topic, the more likely they are to publish at least one of the letters on the topic.
So please consider writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper about greyhound welfare. Our resources page contains a lot of useful information on greyhound racing and greyhound welfare. Read more on writing a letter to the editor here
Always remember your power as a voter, a consumer and a member of the community. Write to or visit your local MP, your state premier or state racing minister and ask them to consider banning greyhound racing. View contact details here. Tell them you will only vote for political parties who will shut down the greyhound racing industry.
Spread the messages “End Greyhound Suffering” “Don’t Bet On It” and “You Bet They Die”. Every dollar that is wagered on a greyhound race legitimises this so-called sport. It increases the industry’s revenue and sends a message to others that gambling on greyhounds is socially acceptable.
If your friends or colleagues are keen to have a night at the dogs, try to convince them not to go and don’t attend if they go ahead.
