President of the Australian Veterinary Association, Dr Robert Johnson, said while they move forward with this ban, there needs to be assurances for the welfare of the dogs involved.
“As the Premier noted, the phasing out of the industry will affect many people and communities that rely on this industry and we want to be sure that transition arrangements will support their needs as well as the greyhounds.
“We would encourage any other state or territory considering such an action to consult with the AVA so we can help to develop an effective plan that supports greyhounds during the transition,” Dr Johnson said.
AVA spokesperson Dr David Neck said it will be a considerable challenge to care for the greyhounds during the transition and ensure their welfare is not compromised.
“There needs to be an adequate timeframe to appropriately phase out the industry while not compromising the welfare of the dogs. The veterinary profession is certainly willing to help these efforts and work with stakeholders.
“We encourage families to consider rehoming a greyhound as they can make wonderful pets. No one wants to see greyhounds euthanased as a result of this decision, and we sincerely hope this can be avoided,” Dr Neck said.
