India: Terrible Cruelty on Female Dog – But She Survives Due To Work of Dr. Sharma





An Unspeakably horrible and shameful act

Dear friends,

please see the pictures attached and read the message below.



I have seen this dog myself at Jeevashram a couple of months back when she was brought under in that condition. Thanks to Dr Vinod Sharma and his skill with surgery that the dog is doing well and came out of this horrible ordeal.

But this incidence is not just about how a dog was saved but also shows to what extent a human mind can go that it can cross all boundaries of shame, cruelty and ruthlessness for mere pleasure of satisfying one’s sense of self/ ego and power.

All this was done just for displaying one’s power over a meek and speechless animal.

And it puts all humans to shame to know that many such maniacs are roaming freely in our society, and who are still untouched because there are no rules, laws controlling them. After all many still believe that its just an animal that has been ill treated beyond all comprehensions, but those same people don’t know that these mindsets only make deadly ccriminals.

India: Vigilance Request For Dogs In Bangalore






Dear All,

This morning a Dog  Van was spotted at Doddanekundi (Marathahalli Post , Outer Ring Road). The van picked up a few stray dogs & sped away. We are not very sure what this is all about . May be it was for ABC by one of the NGOs  but most of us our expecting foul play  .

Since we have no definite idea about what exactly is going on, I request all of you to keep a watch in your area (specially if you are in Marthahalli, then please be more alert). In case you notice something suspicious , please click some photos immediately &  also note the vehicle number so that further action can be taken.

We dont want our furry friends to suffer. If they are on the road, we can get them vaccinated & sterilized but we are against putting them down (which has happened in the past in Bangalore & is a prevelant practice still in most of the Indian tons inspite of it being iliegal). T

This is just a precaution we are taking. But better to be safe than sorry.

Please pass on the message to your friends (animal lovers )

Anything suspicious, please contact &

Thanks & Regards,
For me a house or an apartment becomes a Home when you add a set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a Dog… !!

USA: Dog Racing To End In Rhode Island on 8th August





Dear Friends,

Today I bring you great news!!

After hearing from greyhound advocates around the world, the Rhode Island legislature has announced it will not hold a special summer session in order to prevent Twin River from shutting down live racing.

This means that dog racing will end on August 8!

When lawmakers report back in September, we will introduce legislation to end dog racing as a matter of law. Please thank Representative Patricia Serpa and Senator Lou Raptakis for sponsoring this bill, which will end dog racing for good in New England.

Click here to read an Associated Press story about our rally at the state capitol.

**To hear the latest update on the campaign to end dog racing please tune into Sins of Omission Radio on Monday, August 3 at 9 p.m. (Eastern time). I will discuss the “Unseen Costs of Greyhound Racing” with host, Paula Abeles. Log into and call 347-677-0792 with your questions and comments.**

Once Twin River ends dog racing, there will be just eight states remaining where dog racing is legal and operational.

We are committed to ending dog racing in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Please help us reach this goal by becoming a member of the Gracie Club or by making a contribution today.

Together, we can end dog racing nationwide!

For the greyhounds,

Christine A. Dorchak, Esq.

Uk: Appeal to Find Irish Owner of Greyhound Dumped in Croydon, England








Abandoned Irish bred greyhound called ‘Chapelane Tom’ found as a stray in Croydon (UK)-important appeal for info-please see below  

More info here on ‘Chapelane Tom’  from Greyhound Data as you can see he has very distinctive markings-

‘Chapelane Tom’ raced at Oxford, Milton Keynes and Limerick in Ireland.

Greyhound Crusaders/SWAP team UK have recently been alerted to a greyhound called ‘Chapelane Tom’ (racing name) who was dumped in Croydon (UK) in Mid-July and was taken to a dog pound where he was given the standard seven days before being put to sleep. Luckily he was rescued and is now safe in a foster home. Tom was underweight and had some rotten teeth which have now been extracted, we are pleased to report he is very happy and doing well. He has also been neutered.


We are now appealing for more info on this case and wish to find the previous owner who abandoned him and bring them to justice.

Do you recognise this dog?

Do you know the previous owner?

Tattoo numbers are AH TIA which indicates he is Irish bred.

Please help us to trace the previous owner of this poor dog who could have ended up in a chest freezer dead!! All info given to us will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

Thank you
