Greyhound Welfare

Greyhound Welfare - Landing Page

RWWA is committed to ensuring that the best levels of care are given to greyhounds throughout all stages of their lives, through a program of investment, education, monitoring and regulation. When a greyhound retires from the racing industry, at any age, RWWA will aim to ensure every healthy and behaviourally sound greyhound is re-homed.

The RWWA Holistic Greyhound Welfare Strategy looks at all stages of a greyhound’s life and documents the disciplines and controls required around these stages. The central disciplines that make up the strategy include:

  • Controlling supply via greyhound breeding controls;
  • Increasing demand for greyhounds as pets;
  • Increased resourcing of the industry Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) program;
  • Educating the Industry;
  • Monitoring performance against key metrics;
  • Tracking of all greyhounds at every stage of their life cycle;
  • Regulation and policing of the industry; and
  • Overarching governance to ensure that the animal welfare strategy is applied across all stages of animals lives.
