Outcome of the Macau government’s press conference

Outcome of the Macau government’s press conference

As expected by Anima Macau, the Macau government has announced that it has a contingency plan in the event that the Canidrome cannot move the dogs out by Saturday – which is almost inevitable as there are only 3 days left until the closing date of the Canidrome.

It is Anima’s understanding that in that event, the Canidrome premises would be handled by the government authorities such as the IACM which would be a very good option, as it would involve the assistance of Anima in helping with the dogs and organising their rehoming, and there may also be the possibility that Anima may be asked later to handle the Canidrome premises.

To allow for such an eventuality, Anima is currently asking the Labour Department for permission to recruit non local staff in case they are asked to provide assistance at short notice, and are not able to find sufficient local staff.

So this is all promising news, but a little more patience is required until the official closure day and final announcement on Saturday 21st.

Thank you all for your patience and for bearing with us in these difficult days!

The final decision for the greyhounds of the Macau Government tomorrow 18th July –

**Macau update – 17-07-2018**
Tomorrow at 9.30am UK time (3.30pm Macau time) the government of Macau will finally announce its decision re the fate of the Macau greyhounds. A massive amount of difficult work has been carried out on a daily basis behind the scenes by Anima president Albano Martins to save these dogs, much of it kept confidential due to the delicacy of the situation, but Anima has good grounds to believe that the outcome will be a positive one for the dogs.

It is a very complex and difficult battle, and there is no guarantee that we will succeed in our aim: to save the majority of these dogs, and to do so legally and without stooping to dangerous compromises with the Canidrome and the Chinese mafia who are behind them.

But once again we all, at Pet Levrieri with Anima Macau and GREY2K USA will fight to the end. There is a network of more than 55 organisations from around the world who are helping. 

Whatever the outcome, I know that no stone has been left unturned to save these dogs.
#SaveTheMacauGreyhounds

Here is the Albano press release.

<17-07-2018>
Tomorrow at 3:30 pm, local time, the Macau Government will have a press conference regarding its final decision for the greyhounds!

I believe that after the last good DICJ press release, the Macau Government will be on our side for the protection of the Macau greyhounds!

Anima expects the Macau Government will clearly commit IACM the handling of those animals, supported by Anima and all local animal welfare associations and, and this is very important for a tiny territory like Macau, by all our international friends on the back of the campaign #SaveTheMacauGreyhounds#, leader by GREY2K USA, Pet Levrieri of Italy and Anima of Macau!

I really expect that these news will be good for our greyhound!

Never mind which decision Macau Government will take, never mind if Anima was not really capable to fight for a good strategy for save our greyhounds, I once again thank you all for having supported us and trusted our work and the work of our international partners!

If we have succeeded I will ask all of you again to stand for these poor animals and help us and our international partners to find proper families for all of them!

If these are the good news, we will not have an easy walk!

I am confident! What about you?

Thanks
Albano Martins
President

Murrys Act – shown no mercy….

Last night at Sunderland dog track Murrys Act – a 3 year old black boy – was entered into the heats of the Sunderland Festival. Prior to the race – his ‘trainer’ Kevin Boon – said “We all know what the first bends like at Sunderland so if you don’t like it – you don’t come. I’ve got no problem with the first bend at all – its greyhound racing – that’s the way – you’ve got to accept it” Regardless of the risks – and like every other trainer – he forced a dog in his ‘care’ to race on a dangerously configured track.Murrys Act sustained a broken hock at the first bend and like thousands of other dogs – was rewarded with a lethal injection.Rest gently Murrys Act <3

Animals Australia’s Appeal for the Macau Greyhounds

Animals Australia’s Appeal for the Macau Greyhounds

The concrete cells that have been the last sight for hundreds of ‘unwanted’ Aussie greyhounds will soon be empty — Macau’s notorious Canidrome racetrack is CLOSING DOWN this Saturday! Finally, the 650 surviving dogs who have languished in this prison will have a chance to be free.

Our friends at GREY2K USA, ANIMA – 澳門愛護動物協會 and Pet levrieri have assembled a safety net of waiting adoption groups around the world that are ready and waiting to give all the love and care these dogs so desperately need — but the owner of the racing track is refusing to relinquish ownership of the dogs. This is where you come in!

Please take URGENT action to convince the Macau government to order the release of all surviving dogs into the caring hands of Albano Martins. Albano has been fighting on behalf of these dogs for years and operates a shelter just near the Canidrome.

These dogs have never known love — most of them were exported here over the years by Australian owners and trainers seeking to make a quick buck out of their ‘slow’ dogs 😢. Please, join this global effort to save the surviving greyhounds — and help make sure these dogs are spoiled rotten for the rest of their years!

📧 Send a direct email to Macau Chief Executive Dr. Chui Sai On at [email protected] and ask that all the Canidrome dogs be released to ANIMA.

Welcome Hurricane Gina to Anima!

Welcome Hurricane Gina to Anima!

Hurricane Gina, a female greyhound of around 6 years of age, was rescued today by ANIMA as her adopter was unable to keep her. She was spayed today and now she is staying with Stormy Magic and Louisville in room A4 at Anima.

Welcome Hurricane Gina to Anima! Things will only get better from now on for this girl, and she will soon find out what it feels like to be loved and respected, thanks to the Anima team who rescued her and who will take care of her until we find her an adoptive family.



JACK’S STORY

JACK’S STORY

 

A few years ago Anima were informed by Nora Dieppe in Australia that one of her greyhound Millie’s siblings had been sold to Macau by his trainer. After an investigation it was found that this dog was the renamed City Hunter (formerly Jack).

Albano Martins and Anima then successfully worked to stop him and another greyhound named Brooklyn from being killed, by putting pressure on the Macau government.

Since the start of the international #ClosetheCanidrome campaign in 2012, launched and led on a worldwide basis by ANIMA Macau and GREY2K USA Worldwide, several dogs were kept alive because of the international public pressure applied by the campaign. That is the reason why several of the older dogs are still alive.

When the Canidrome started holding their “Adoption Days’, Anima instructed board member Edith Lam to go and get Jack for Nora.

Jack is now happy and well, and is being fostered by Edith alongside her own rescued ex Canidrome greyhound Garlic, while the necessary veterinary and bureaucratic procedures are carried out prior to his return to Australia later in the year.
