The GBGB's rehoming scheme

On the 1st September 2020 the Greyhound Retirement Scheme was launched – you can read the GBGB’s leaflet on it by clicking here. On the face of it, it sounded wonderful and to be fair it is a start. In order to race in the UK a bond of £200 must be paid and upon the greyhound’s retirement, that money and a further £200 from the GBGB is passed to approved rescue centres upon proof of their safe arrival, they don’t even have to be registered charities. All greyhounds would now go on and live happily ever after. However there are conditions, lots of them, such as assessment tests at the larger rescue centres where failures are destroyed. Many all breed dog rescues understandably have jumped on the band wagon to claim their £400 bond. It sticks in our throat a bit but that is their business.

Tia has long been courted by the GBGB for this scheme and it has been tempting at times. However, Tia’s dogs rarely come straight from the track. We take the dogs that fall through the cracks, the ‘useless’ like Roger and Etta, those raced purely in Ireland like Edie and strays like our latest arrival Edward. Take a look at the list below which shows the 114 greyhounds that have come to Tia since 1st September 2020, the date the GBGB’s scheme started. Of the dogs in this list only 33 qualified for the GBGB’s rehoming scheme. The other 81 would not have qualified. Where will those dogs go when there’s no financial incentive to take them?
