Current e-Petitions for the Legislative Council

Phasing out Greyhound Racing in WA

Eligibility : Residents of Western Australia Only

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned ...

residents of Western Australia are opposed to greyhound racing in the state and call upon the Government to phase out greyhound racing.
Your petitioners therefore respectfully request the Legislative Council recommends that the Government; sets up an independent WA Greyhound Welfare Unit to oversee racing greyhound welfare, immediately ends imports of racing greyhounds from any other state or territory of Australia (except for those dogs racing for a specific event that will return to their home state immediately after), puts in place breeding caps to limit pups whelped each year, reduces the number of racing days each week, introduces a bond for all racing dogs to aid with rehabilitation, kennelling or rehoming post racing. Implements a three year phase out plan to end racing by 2028, assists industry participants in reskilling and ensures all greyhounds are rehomed by the end of the phase out.

And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
