AS the next Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) adoption day draws near, Geelong resident Kyle Vos has plenty of positive things to say about his adoption experience.
GAP headquarters in Seymour will host the next adoption day this Sunday October 23 from 11am until 2pm, with more than 50 greyhounds expected to be available on the day.
Kyle attended one of the first adoption days at Sandown Park, where he fell in love with Teddy, and took home his first greyhound.
The former Geelong Supercats basketballer now volunteers at various GAP events and can’t recommend the experience any more.
“I always had an interest in the breed from watching racing, but I first met a greyhound at the Melbourne Show about three years ago, and that really sparked my interest,” he said.
Now six years old, Kyle described Teddy as “very lazy and easy going.”
“He loves to sleep, but also loves the beach as well,” Kyle said.
Following Kyle’s adoption, his sister and grandfather also took an interest in the breed and now each have a greyhound of their own.
You can also give a greyhound their forever home, and the adoption day this Sunday is the perfect chance to see if this breed is for you. Registrations are encouraged as you can receive more information about how the day works, as well as a list of dogs available to take home on the day.
Pet dogs are also invited to come along, provided owners keep them on a leash and out of the greyhound kennels.
A light lunch will be provided on the day.
The GAP central adoption centre is located at 298 Goulburn Valley Highway, Seymour.
