About the R.G.O.A.(Romford Greyhound Homing) and

R.G.O.A. Trust for Retired Racing Greyhounds


The Romford Greyhound Owners Association (R.G.O.A.) was formed in 1977 to assist in homing retired racing greyhounds (whilst rewarding them during their racing career) from Romford Stadium. The R.G.O.A. Trust for Retired Racing Greyhounds, Charity Number 279956R (the homing organisation, formed in 1980) is affiliated to the Retired Greyhound Trust.

(The RGOA reached the landmark of 2000 adoptions in 2013 and on September 21st it was celebrated with a sponsored race at Romford Stadium during the evening meeting.  Photos of adoptable dogs are available in the 'greyhounds awaiting a home' section)
