Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) is proposing rule changes which enhance existing requirements for the export of greyhounds, placing greater responsibilities on owners.
Under the proposed changes it will be a serious offence for Victorian participants to allow a greyhound in their care to be exported without a passport issued by Greyhound Australasia.
Under the proposed changes, it will also be a serious offence for participants to transfer greyhounds to others when they know (or should have known) the greyhound was going to be exported, without taking steps to ensure the exporter will obtain a greyhound passport before exporting the greyhound.
GRV is working with participants and key stakeholders to reform the greyhound industry in Victoria with animal welfare and integrity at the heart of the code.
From May 26 to June 9, participants are invited to make a submission about the proposed amendments.
