The health, comfort and security of greyhounds is an over-riding objective of the GTA.
The following websites provide information, advice and support in the area of Welfare:
The Greyhound Trainers Association Committee, is strongly committed to ALL aspects of greyhound welfare. We are passionate about greyhound racing, and believe greyhound welfare to be of paramount importance to everyone in our sport.
Our ideals are :
To keep greyhound welfare at the very top of our sports agenda.
To liaise with Retired Greyhound Trust, Dogs Trust, and other welfare societies, to establish best practices with greyhound retirement, and best practices for their welfare.
To encourage GBGB to provide complete transparency with regard to retirement/rehoming, racing injuries and deaths due to racing/injuries.
To ensure we have a welfare system where the dogs come first and a system that goes above and beyond DEFRA requirements.
