The Greyhound Adoption Program now has a presence on the Mornington Peninsula where people can meet, interact with and adopt greyhounds.
An easy freeway drive located just 10 minutes from Mornington and five minutes from Peninsula Link, the Dogs Country Club & Kennel Resort is a convenient location in Melbourne’s south east.
“We offer five star and seven star accommodation and you don’t often find that in boarding kennels,” said Cory Andrews, Owner/Manager of the Dogs Country Club & Kennel Resort.
“We are on 13 acres on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. We have lovely large running paddocks for the dogs which is really great and (we offer) lots of cuddle time. All of our dogs have an inside sleeping area that’s fully insulated so it’s beautiful and warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Then attached that they have an outside undercover play area so it doesn’t matter what the weather is, they can still get out in the fresh air and play because we believe that is really important for their well-being.”
GAP Adoption Officer Michelle Fisher said there were eight greyhounds available for adoption at the facility every day.
“If people want to they can just come and view the dogs – even if they’re not ready to adopt – just to get an idea what the breed is like (then they’re welcome). We have our own office here which makes it a private exchange when people are adopting,” Michelle said.
There is a separate area on the property for people to meet the greyhounds, in which they can walk them, introduce them to any other pet dogs they may have, and watch them gallop in a fenced off area.
