Over 200 people flocked to the picturesque Seymour on Sunday 23 October, despite a chilly 15 degree day to meet and greet some special greyhounds who where looking for their forever homes.
24 year-old Emily Johnstone (pictured with Ruby) found out about the Seymour Adoption Day through the Greyhound Adoption Program website after friends recommend a greyhound because of their quiet nature and short hair.
“I couldn’t be happier with how the day went. Everything went smoothly and everyone I spoke to on the day where so helpful which made the process fun and easy!” Emily explained.
“I was looking for a young dog with a different colour coat and I was introduced to Ruby.”
Emily, an animal attendant, fostered Ruby with the view to adopt which involves a trial period to see how Ruby adapts to her new lifestyle.
“Ruby is with me right now and I couldn’t be happier… She will definitely be staying with us!”
Although the trip to Seymour was a two hour drive from Emily’s home of Narre Warren, she believes the road trip was well and truly worth it.
GAP Communication Advisor Rose Streatfeild said 40 greyhounds were re-homed on the day.
“Seymour is only an hour and a half out of Melbourne and is a great opportunity for potential owners to bring their current pets for a meet and greet which is unlike our other adoption days,” Rose Streatfeild explained.
“Everyone who attended the day was very impressed with the facilities.”
