With the recent release of the RHDV1 K5 virus and ongoing debate about the best way to manage introduced predators such as feral cats and wild dogs, the ethical control of pest animals is an important consideration here in Australia.
Before you adopt one of these lovely dogs, it’s important to know that they do have specific needs. Ex-racing greyhounds in particular need lots of care and patience, as it’s likely that they will not have been well socialised.
This is a very rare opportunity to improve the lives of millions of animals. That’s why we need to make sure the process is done right, and leads to tangible improvements in animal welfare - not just what supports the status quo.
