GRNSW Race Injury Rebate Scheme

The introduction of this scheme is an important part of GRNSW’s ongoing commitment to improving welfare outcomes for racing greyhounds by preventing unnecessary euthanasia of greyhounds in NSW and providing greyhounds which are physically healthy and behaviourally sound the opportunity to live out their natural life span as a companion animal.  The scheme recognises that the treatment of some of the more serious injuries can be expensive and as a result the owner sometimes considers euthanasia because the cost is prohibitive for them. This scheme provides the greyhound owner with the financial support needed to ensure greyhounds that can be treated including detailed surgery where this is required.

This scheme is an important part of GRNSW’s ongoing commitment to improving welfare outcomes for racing greyhounds by preventing unnecessary euthanasia of greyhounds in NSW and providing greyhounds which are physically healthy and behaviourally sound the opportunity to live out their natural life span as a companion animal. The scheme recognises that the treatment of some of the more serious injuries can be expensive. An owner may consider euthanasia to be the only option to safeguard the welfare of the greyhound, because the cost of the required treatment/surgery is prohibitive and without such treatment/surgery the greyhound would suffer unnecessarily. This scheme provides the greyhound owner with financial assistance, if needed, to ensure that a seriously injured greyhound receives appropriate veterinary care and treatment including surgery if required. The scheme also enables participants to obtain an accurate off-track diagnosis/prognosis for their seriously injured greyhound, so that a fully-informed decision on appropriate treatment can be made.
