Retired Greyhound Trust

Retired greyhounds can make great pets

Retired greyhounds can make great pets. They are generally calm, affectionate and tend to adapt easily to life as a pet. Many make loyal companions and excellent family pets. Contrary to belief they do not require lots of exercise.

Nottingham Greyhound Stadium work closely with the Midlands Branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust. To assist owners that are unable to offer a home to their greyhound at the end of its racing career Nottingham Stadium has developed a scheme, in partnership with the Midlands RGT Branch, whereby a percentage of prizemoney earned by all greyhounds racing at Nottingham Stadium, along with Stadium and Stadium Bookmaker contributions, goes directly to sponsoring a number of kennels for Nottingham ex-racers until they are re-homed.

The Stadium hosts regular fund raising events for the Retired Greyhound Trust and if you think that you could offer a home to an ex-racer, or you require further information, log onto the sites below:
