How does the Greyhound Retirement Scheme (GRS) work and who receives it?

  • A racing owner pays £200 per greyhound registered for racing.  When the dog ceases racing the GBGB matches the £200. 
  • To promote British breeding, owners of British bred greyhounds registered between Sep 2020 and Aug 2022 pay only £100 and the GBGB contributes £300. 
  • The rescue centre receives the £400 per dog to assist with homing.
  • The GRS money covers kennelling and care.  It does not cover veterinary fees.
  • The GBGB holds the list of approved rescue centres, including: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, branches of DogsTrust, Blue Cross, Greyhound Trust and independent dog rescues.
