Tabcorp Animal Welfare Position Statement
4 June 2020
This week, Tabcorp issued a position statement regarding animal welfare. It is aligned to the company’s position on animal welfare outlined at the 2019 Annual General Meeting, following an ABC Four Corners story on the inhumane slaughter of former racehorses.
Tabcorp is committed to building a sustainable future for our business and our industry. We expect the highest standards of animal welfare and integrity, and we have a zero tolerance to animal cruelty, in racing and in society in general.
Tabcorp has already supported the racing industry’s animal welfare efforts through coverage of the five-part series on Sky Thoroughbred Central, Thoroughbreds Are Go. TAB has also launched the Sock Stable initiative, donating 100% of profits to Racing Victoria’s Off The Track program and Team Thoroughbred NSW. In addition, we are supporting the Thoroughbred Welfare initiative to improve thoroughbred welfare outcomes, as well as working closely with industry bodies on this issue.
We will continue to work in partnership with the thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing industries to ensure the welfare of animals is prioritised.
