The Animal Justice Party and the Coalition for the Protection of Greyhounds are jointly coordinating greyhound awareness walks. The walk is being held in various locations around the country – on the same day (see below). This year the walk is scheduled for Sunday 21st June and will be held around 10am.
This is a nationwide walk held to promote the greyhound as a companion dog, not a racing animal. The Australian Awareness Walk is anti-greyhound racing. We want the industry shut down.
