The R.G.O.A. and Greyhound Trust both work closely with the stadium to help find homes for retired greyhounds. Please visit their websites for more information.
Racing greyhounds can retire from the sport at any age and for a variety of reasons, but when they do the one thing, they have in common is looking for their forever sofa in their forever home. Here at Romford Stadium, we look after our greyhounds very well during their sporting career and in their retirement.
Our partnered retirement homes; the Romford Greyhound Owners’ Association and Ashwell’s Greyhound Trust, provide homes to our retired racers to ensure they are happy and healthy.
If you would like to re-home one of our lovely greyhounds, help by donating to this great cause or want to know more about greyhounds after retiring lifestyle, please visit our partner's websites.

"We are a country of animal lovers and sports lovers so it is vital that animal welfare is at the heart of greyhound racing.
The industry employs over 7,000 people who work to provide outstanding care to the thousands of registered racing greyhounds throughout the country.
From vets, stewards and racing managers to trainers and kennel staff, everyone involved in greyhound racing does it for the love of our dogs and our enjoyment of seeing them do what they do best."

Ground teams at all GBGB stadiums have to be highly observant and knowledgeable about a range of influencing factors to be able to deliver a safe and consistent racing surface for our canine athletes. Our stadiums work closely with the Sports Turf Research Institute, a globally recognised company on track and athletic playing surfaces, to harness the latest research, technology and best practice.
