The Greyhound Protection League of New Zealand


Reckless breeding, preventable injuries, relentless culling. Greyhound racing is inhumane entertainment.


Greyhound protection: Advocacy and Activism

Greyhounds in racing are short term investments, placed at high risk and disposed of readily when the physical stress of racing takes over. Many are put to death for failing to even meet these business demands.
Most simply go missing. It is our belief that animals should be protected from industries and individuals who would seek to do them harm. Greyhound racing is inhumane and at odds with mainstream expectations.
