For the first time, the Greyhound Adoption Program has held a Foster Care event in conjunction with the Sandown Adoption Day.
Lifelong dog lover and self-confessed greyhound convert Mark Richardson wasn’t leaving any stone unturned when it came to understanding the breed after adopting former racer Hunny.
Entering retirement life can be very daunting for a greyhound. Many of our greyhounds that come into the program after racing need some extra help in a home environment before finding the perfect couch for them to spend the rest of their retirement.
Have you always wanted to have a dog but can’t commit to having one full-time… foster care could be the perfect option for you!
The GAP volunteers and foster carers are one in a million and to celebrate their hard work and dedication we treated to them to a day at the Melbourne Aquarium as part of National Volunteer Week.
Coursing trainer, Sean Lithgow, often re-homes his greyhounds through GAP. A few years ago, a couple who had adopted one of his greyhounds messaged him online. Their greyhound wasn’t responding to his name – Jon Snow – so they wanted to learn more about him.
When: Saturday 22 June. Time: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Venue: Sandown GRC. Registration to this event is essential. Register today!
The GAP Café, located at 477 King Street in West Mel-bourne, has a new manager.
A huge build-up to Australia’s second-ever National Greyhound Adoption Day has come to fruition with 71 greyhounds being adopted into Victorian homes after a wonderful day at The Meadows Racetrack.
More than 70 people and their pet greyhounds gathered at the McCrae Lighthouse on 7 April to honour Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) great, the late Don Graham.
