IRGT EDUCATION SERIES PART 12: GREYHOUND CARE CENTRE

GRI

Over the past 3 months, the IRGT have brought you their #GreyhoundWednesdayWisdom​​ series, bringing you some helpful tips about greyhounds as pets.

In this final video of the series, we want to re-introduce you to the first greyhound care centre which launched last October. The care centre was set up to promote and help ex-racing greyhounds find their forever homes as pets for families across Ireland. The centre, which is independently run is funded by RCÉ through the Greyhound Care Fund. The Greyhound Care Fund, which was established in 2019, is solely dedicated to supporting a range of care and welfare projects for racing greyhounds and is funded from patrons at greyhound stadia and 50% of sponsorship for greyhound racing. The Greyhound Care Centre is overseen by the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust.

The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT) was established in 1997 and since then many thousands of retired Irish Greyhounds have been rehomed through, or with the support of, the IRGT.

Every Wednesday we've been bringing you #GreyhoundWednesdayWisdom​​​ which we hope will help you to learn more about greyhounds and help you prepare for your new family pet. Why not look back on previous videos to learn more.
