Tails wagging with the dog food delivery - Animal Welfare is our No#1 priority

Greyhound Clubs Victoria and Greyhound Racing Victoria are looking after their number 1 assets – their greyhounds and trainers.   GRV and GCV have combined to purchase a significant quantity of dog food for their trainers.

Greyhound Clubs Victoria recently formed to be a voice for the industry.  GCV is represented by all 13 Victorian clubs as a strong and united voice on grass roots issues. 

Chairman Adrian Scott who has recently been appointed CEO at Sandown Greyhounds after a 5-year term at the Warragul club knows the issues trainers face at the coalface.  Mr Scott said “Being able to secure a significant quantity of dog food for our greyhounds has been a challenge.   Registered trainers can purchase 4 x 20kg bags of dog food at a significantly subsidised rate.  The welfare of our dogs is an industry priority.  It is important to understand we have ordered additional stock of dog food which will not impact current supply levels.” Mr Scott applauded the trainers and staff at all 13 Victoria tracks for abiding by the rules, listening to advice from the Chief Health Officer and enabling our sport to continue safely.

GCVs newly appointed CEO Mr Brett Jones said “COVID-19 has presented our industry with many challenges, and the need for online communication and advice channels has seen GCV at the forefront of the industry with a new website and a Facebook page for immediate updates.”

GRV CEO Alan Clayton also very pleased to be contributing to the project  said “We know some of our trainers have been having trouble finding food for their dogs and GRV is pleased to join with Greyhound Clubs Victoria to support our trainers by sourcing dog food and offering it at discount rates.’’
