Victory!

Signing your name on petitions does indeed work! Some people think that these petitions floating around on the internet don’t do any good. NOT TRUE! As in many instances, here’s another case where petitioning has helped:

A Change.org Petition Update had this to say:

Aug 19, 2014 — In June, we asked you to sign a petition to stop the expansion of commercial dog racing to South Africa. Today, we are pleased to announce that the Department of Trade and Industry listened to your concerns and has decided that dog racing will remain illegal in the country!

Victory for Greyhounds!

 

A note (and video) from Grey2K, the greyhound protection group who spearheaded the petition, celebrated with this letter to those who helped:

Dear Friends,

In June, we asked you to sign a petition to stop the expansion of commercial dog racing to South Africa. Today, we are pleased to announce that the Department of Trade and Industry listened to your concerns and has decided that dog racing will remain illegal in the country!

Thanks are due to everyone around the world who wrote to officials and asked for the proposed authorization of dog racing to be dismissed. Our friends at the National Council of Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the International Fund for Animal Welfare also spoke out strongly to prevent the coming of this cruelty to South Africa. In fact, a television piece which featured these organizations and used our research is thought to have had great influence on the debate.

Please watch the Carte Blanche segment and then let’s all celebrate this great news today!

Best wishes,


Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.

So, you see, it does help when you add your name to a petition. So keep on signing those petitions for the causes you believe in. Together we can make a difference. We definitely made a difference for countless greyhounds with this victory!
