IRISH DERBY
Friday 20th September 2019
Five of the SAGE Team are heading to Dublin tomorrow to join our comrades across the water to make a stand at the Irish Derby. This is a huge event in Ireland and we're expecting it to be quite different to our usual demos at Shawfield. But greyhound exploitation is huge in Ireland. 83% of the greyhounds raced in the UK originate from Ireland. The Irish Government funds the industry despite being fully aware of what goes on behind the scenes. Thousands of greyhounds killed each year before getting anywhere near the racetrack then more killed at some point during their "career". We're all hoping for a massive turnout to let the Irish authorities know we won't tolerate greyhound abuse any more.

SAGE NEWS

When we first founded SAGE we pledged to do everything we could to end greyhound racing. We wanted to establish an organisation that was ethical and professional. We applied for charitable status as we felt it would give us credibility and strength.
 
On 8th November 2019, after a lengthy process, we were granted this status. We are now held to account by OSCR, the Scottish Charity Regulator.
We believe this will help the cause. We believe their voices will be heard louder now.

SAGE THE CHARITY

SAGE is honoured to have been invited to speak at the Greyhound Around the Globe Conference on 30th November 2019.

The event, which is being hosted by Grey2K USA and Irish Council Against Blood Sports, has been described as "the most exciting and comprehensive event for greyhound advocacy ever".

The conference will feature humane leaders from around the world who are working together to end the cruelty of dog racing. Throughout the day, greyhound advocates from multiple countries will join Irish speakers to discuss the issues confronting greyhounds and offer strategies for ending dog racing. 

 

Albano Martins of ANIMA Macau, Stefania Traini of Pet Levrieri and Marion Fitzgibbon of Limerick Animal Welfare will be given special awards in recognition of their leadership in campaigning and greyhound adoption.

DUBLIN AGAIN!

Greyhound exploitation is huge in Ireland. 83% of the greyhounds raced in the UK originate from Ireland. The Irish Government funds the industry despite being fully aware of what goes on behind the scenes. Thousands of greyhounds are killed each year before getting anywhere near the racetrack then more are killed at some point during their "career". A small fraction of the greyhounds bred for the industry make it to so called "retirement". 
 
It is imperative that we ALL join forces to make the authorities stand up and take notice, in the UK and every other country that permits this exploitation to continue. 
 
Greyhound racing has had its day.
