The Greyhound Adoption Program was judged the best ‘Commercial Exhibitor’ at last month’s Royal Melbourne Show.
Boasting a backyard theme, the GAP stand was typically engaging as greyhounds chilled out while enjoying the attention of show-goers, while their owners promoted the breed by answering questions about their suitability as pets.
Located in the Pets, Gardens & Outdoor Living Pavilion, the GAP stand also boasted:
- A screen playing videos about the GAP on loop
- The opportunity to win a Weber BBQ simply by registering your details (this was won by Cam Holmes of Cranbourne)
- The chance for people to register their interest in subscribing to the GAP database and newsletter
- iPads and posters showcasing greyhounds currently available for adoption
The Greyhound Adoption Program continues to go from strength to strength, with the recent announcement of a record 847 adoptions during the 2015 financial year.
