VIDEO: ‘Every Greyhound Has a Story’ – Seymour headquarters

The final tale in the Greyhound Adoption Program’s ‘Every Greyhound Has a Story’ video series showcases our headquarters in Seymour.

Since opening in 2004, thousands of greyhounds have been temporarily housed at our multi-million dollar facility before being adopted into loving homes.

“We take dogs that are not suitable for racing anymore. They’re either too slow, or they’ve just finished their racing career,” explained Greyhound Adoption Program Manager, Larissa Darragh.

“From there we assess each dog and we put them into a foster home where they get used to being a pet dog, and then we match them up with somebody waiting to adopt.”

Greyhounds must be deemed ‘little dog friendly’ to go through the program, at which point they are adopted out and presented with a special GAP-branded green collar.

Wearing this collar exempts greyhounds from having to wear a muzzle in public.
