Greyhound Adoption Days

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Bendigo Adoption Day postponed due to kennel cough

Unfortunately, a few of the greyhounds have come down with kennel cough, (it’s like when we get a cold in winter) so we’ve had to postpone the Bendigo Adoption Day to Sunday 27th August. We’re really sorry but we still can’t wait to see you and introduce you to these wonderful dogs.

UPDATE

Dave the greyhound wanted to let everyone know that our Ballarat kennels are working hard
to get our greyhounds ready for the rescheduled event on Sunday 27th August!

Got space on your couch, Bendigo?

When: Sunday, 27 August 2017 (new date)
Time: 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Venue: Bendigo Greyhound Club, Lords Raceway, McIvor Highway, Junortoun 3551

This isn’t just a day to adopt greyhounds. If you are thinking about adopting and want to find out more information, this is a great opportunity as staff from the Greyhound Adoption Program will be on hand to answer any of your questions while you meet and interact with some of our placid, friendly greyhounds.

If you are interested in adopting on the day, please go to https://goo.gl/F6eeXO and fill out the adoption application. The form needs to be filled out in addition to registering to attend the event.

There will also be a light lunch served on the day.

Registration to this event is essential. Register today using the form below and we will see you and your family at the event!

LIST OF GREYHOUNDS

FAQs

What can/can’t I bring to the event?
All you need is yourself!

Can I bring my pet dog with me?
Unfortunately, we are unable to facilitate meetings between your current pet and potential greyhound so please leave them at home. If you would like your current pet to meet the potential new greyhound, please arrange this separately with GAP where you can do this at the Seymour or Baxter properties. Other arrangements may be able to be made if these two locations do not suit but you’ll need to speak with GAP.

Will there be cat-tolerant greyhounds available for adoption?
Unfortunately, due to these greyhounds being in high demand there won’t be any cat-tolerant greyhounds available on the day for adoption. If you would like to adopt a cat-tolerant greyhound, please contact GAP directly on 03 5799 0166.

What greyhounds are up for adoption?
In the week leading up to the event, we will publish the list of greyhounds that will be available on the day, which we will post on this page closer to the event. However, if you register prior to Saturday 12th August, you will also receive an email by Friday 11th August, with information regarding the day which includes the list of greyhounds available.

Can I have a greyhound held for me and just pick up on the day?
We cannot hold a greyhound(s) for you. Remember every day is an Adoption Day at GAP, so if you don’t get the greyhound you are looking for don’t worry. There are more coming through the program on a weekly basis, so the right one will come along eventually, you just need to give it time.

What happens if I miss out on the day?
Unfortunately, we can only transport a certain number of greyhounds to these events, therefore, with the popularity of them, there is a chance you will miss out on adopting a greyhound. It is important to remember though; every day is an Adoption Day at GAP. If you don’t get the greyhound(s) you would like, don’t forget there are more coming through the program on a weekly basis. The right greyhound will come along, it just may take some time so don’t be discouraged.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
For more information please visit the GAP Adoption Days page on our website. You can also contact us at adoptionday@grv.org.au.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Ideally, it would be great if you did but no, you don’t need to bring your printed ticket. We can still check you in without it.
