Cara Projects reject greyhound track fundraising

5 Jan

A big thank you to Cara Projects for becoming the latest charity to reject greyhound track fundraising.

The Irish charity, which provides support to disadvantaged mothers and children in Kenya, has told the Irish Council Against Blood Sports that it will be asking its volunteers not to organise fundraisers at greyhound tracks.

The charity was responding to an ICABS appeal prompted by a recent greyhound track fundraiser which was held to raise money for local Cara volunteers. In our appeal, we highlighted the cruelty inherent in the greyhound industry.

Stressing that Cara “do not organise any functions at greyhound tracks” and that the fundraiser in question was independently organised by a volunteer, a spokesperson for Cara Projects commented: “We will ask at the next meeting of all volunteers in early January that this method of fundraising would not be used by volunteers in future.”

We are very grateful to Cara Projects for this compassionate response.
