2021 has been a huge year for us here at Free the Hounds! We are so proud of our achievements here are just a few of them:
ðŸ¤² Fundraised over $18,000 for Candy Cane rescue to save greyhounds & other dogs from the meat trade.
ðŸ§ Celebrated the Macau Canidrome survivors Gotcha Day with a walk & dog friendly cake.
ðŸª§ Held 4 successful protests: Hyde Park Walk, Perth Cup, Parliament House and New Years Eve.
â˜€ï¸ Attended monthly community events & markets stalls with our greyhounds promoting them as pets.
ðŸ’š Held our first â€˜Nup to the Cupâ€™ event which sold out.
Ran our biggest â€˜Hounds Day Outâ€™ with over 1000 attendees.
ðŸ“ƒ Freed the snoot! After 5 years of advocating & working with various Members of Parliament, rescued greyhounds in WA no longer need to wear muzzles. A small step forward in reducing discrimination of this gentle breed.
ðŸ¥ Andâ€¦most importantly we handed over 10,000+ handwritten signatures on our petition to end greyhound racing to the WA parliament!
Thank you to everyone who supported us in 2021! Hereâ€™s to working towards ending greyhound racing in 2022 âœ¨
