GREYHOUND racing in the UK began on July 24, 1926, at Belle Vue Stadium in Manchester.

Every year, on the nearest Saturday and Sunday to this date, we stage Greyhound Remembrance Weekend in memory of the hundreds of thousands of dogs that have been killed by the greyhound racing industry since that day.

The weekend is marked by street stalls and demos/pickets on the Saturday and by remembrance ceremonies on the Sunday, when wreaths and flowers are laid outside greyhound stadiums, in memory of all the dogs that have suffered and been put to death.

If you would like more information, please contact Greyhound Action, PO Box 127, Kidderminster, DY10 3UZ (01562) 700043 ZELDA RAND, Totton.
