THE GREYS IN THE SHADOWS

Jenny Green explains the work that CAGED Nationwide are doing to give a voice to thousands of greyhounds across the UK

Rita and Michael James set up the Campaign Against Greyhound Exploitation and Death (CAGED) North West after they felt that there was a distinct lack of action against the cruelty within the greyhound racing industry which they had witnessed first-hand and researched. Rita and Michael attended numerous protests against greyhound racing at the Belle Vue Stadium in Manchester during 2011 before launching CAGED North West in 2012, which is now known as CAGED Nationwide due to its exponential growth. They said: “The cruelty cases that we learned about were horrific; the fact that any untrained person could legally attempt to destroy a greyhound using a bolt gun to the head, behind closed doors, sent a chill down our spines. We knew from then on that we had a fight on our hands and site protests alone were not going to cut it.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the August Issue of Vegan Life. The vegan message is continuing to build momentum and our voices are becoming louder. In Vegan View this month we talk to Ed Winters about Surge’s Animal Rights March in London this September and his hopes for animal activism. We also have an inspirational interview with What the Health co-director Kip Andersen. Kip was fantastic to interview — very relaxed, honest and chatty. We spoke to him about his new film and what he has coming up in the future. If you haven’t seen What the Health yet, it is definitely worth putting some time aside to do so. Inside you will find features on pearl farming, the environmental value of electric vehicles and an overview of the vital, but undervalued, vitamin B12. We also have a focus on dog adoption this month. Shocking numbers of dogs are being abandoned at rehoming centres and we explore how adopting a companion can change their life, and yours, for the better. As we enter the last month of the summer, we need to embrace this wonderful season wholeheartedly. In this issue we are showing you how easy it is to make your own vegan ice cream and frozen yoghurt. Your neighbours will have serious food envy when they see you cooling off with our recipe for home-made vegan pistachio ice cream! We also have introduced a new feature this month. We love scrolling through your pictures of the magazine, recipes you have made from Vegan Life and your vegan adventures so we have decided to feature a few of our favourites. Why not try and get your picture published in the next issue? To be featured tag @veganlife_mag on Instagram and Twitter, @veganlifemagazine on Facebook or email Olivia@primeimpact.co.uk. Have a great month and we look forward to seeing you in September!
