WED & FRID
FIRST RACE 7.15
The meeting with M.P's representing E.F.R.A. appeared positive. They were pleasantly surprised (their words) with Askern and the reception they received.
Their remit was solely one of welfare, happy with kennels, vet's room, vet in attendance and running surface.
I was candid with the fact 90% of the problems, in my opinion, with the greyhound industry, both codes, is with euthanasia and rehoming. The difference is our problems are manageable unlike our registered friends.
We are drawing up our own welfare constitution, which E.F.R.A. are keen to see as they report to parliament in under two weeks. It will contain the obvious which everyone who present their dogs for racing already comply with, but concentrating more on the real problems of euthanasia and rehoming.
Probably taking the idea of Charlie Burlings with regard a "racing club" a stage further, we can push the boundaries on animal welfare. A committee is being set up with the remit of raising funds through raffles, events etc. I have pledged the first £500. The committee can then oversee any injuries sustained to racing greyhounds, if they are repairable committee have the funds to rehabilitate and help with rehoming, only the most serious cases will euthanasia take place. The committee will also work closely with rehoming agencies, a lot more forward planning is required. The aim is to give all greyhounds under our code the best possible lives.
By becoming a member of " our club" i.e. race at Askern you will agree with our soon to be published constitution, anyone not accepting this or breaks our constitution on welfare will not be permitted to race.
Lets drive our sport forward and show our greyhounds the respect they deserve.
Stay lucky Dave.
