Booking your Greyhound into R2R

Racing2Rehome is a not-for-profit Greyhound Rehoming Group run by Volunteers. Greyhounds in our program live in foster homes until they are adopted.  Our foster carers open their hearts and homes to facilitate the greyhound's transition to pet life - while R2R seek a loving forever home for your dog.


Requirements for a greyhound coming into the Racing2Rehome program:
  • must have a current C5 vaccination (original to be provided to R2R)

  • a correctly fitting muzzle must come with the dog      

  • greyhound to be delivered to an agreed location       

  • copy of GAP assessment if previously assessed by GAP

     (this assists R2R in selecting an appropriate foster carer)

  • Donation of $150 for each dog to contribute towards their care in foster.

GRV Desexing and Dental Scheme
  • From 1 July 2021, Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) will provide up to $500 (incl GST) towards the cost of desexing and dental treatment of retired Victorian greyhounds PRIOR TO REHOMING.


  • Registered Victorian racing participants are encouraged by GRV to apply for the scheme to ensure their greyhounds are desexed and receive dental treatment prior to being rehomed through a rehoming group.
