APDAWG Oct Meeting

Greyhound Racing in the UK - An Update on Welfare

APDAWG’s 3rd meeting of the year will focus on what's happened since the post-implementation review of The Welfare of Racing Greyhound Regulations was signed off by DEFRA in 2016.

Stakeholders from across the debate provided in-depth contributions to the EFRA Select Committee & DEFRA consultations in 2015-2016, to make the case for a high standard of welfare for the tens of thousands of greyhounds racing on British racetracks.

A significant milestone was reached in March 2018 when the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) published, for the first time in racing’s history in the UK, injury & end of life data in response to the DEFRA review. The publication was accompanied by a new Greyhound Commitment from the Greyhound Board of Great Britain.

You are invited to attend APDAWG's Autumn meeting to hear what has changed for the welfare of the racing greyhound in the UK since 2016.
