On 24th August 2014, Animal Liberation Qld volunteers attended the greyhound puppy auction at Ipwsich, Queensland.
We are extremely disappointed that Bendigo Bank supports such a cruel and wasteful industry. The greyhound racing industry is responsible for an estimated "wastage" of some 17,000 dogs each year in Australia.
UPDATE: 19/02/2015 - We are pleased to announce that Bendigo Bank have withdrawn their sponsorship after a huge public outrage following our investigations which aired on 4 Corners this week. Find out more at greyhoundcruelty.com.
Please contact Bendigo Bank and politely ask that they stop sponsoring greyhound racing.

You can include some of these points in your email:
- The support of the recent puppy auction at Ipswich Greyhound Racing Club flies in the face of Bendigo Bank's commitment to homeless animals
- The greyhound racing industry promotes the overbreeding of dogs in the hopes of producing a "winner"
- Thousands of greyhounds are euthanased each year because they are no longer profitable
- Bendigo Bank's support of greyhound racing does not reflect corporate social responsibility
