The group are appealing for more support, so they can increase the frequency of these, as well as holding street stalls etc. in support of their campaign.

According to the pro-racing greyhoundscene internet forum, a young greyhound (21 months old), called Unleash Castro, collapsed and died after winning a race last Saturday (April 11th) at Nottingham.
Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.
