Geelong Adoption Day

The next Adoption Day for the Greyhound Adoption Program is fast approaching and is set for Sunday 10th July 2016 – at Geelong Greyhound Racing Club at Beckley Park.

This isn’t just a day to adopt greyhounds. If people 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.


“This is the first time we’ve brought the successful Adoption Day event out to a regional area like Geelong. We want everyone to meet these wonderful animals and why not start with the Geelong area, one of our most popular areas for greyhounds!” said GAP Communication Advisor, Rose Streatfeild.

“The metro Adoption Days have been so successful and we don’t want to stop there! These events are great for people to have their first encounter with the breed, I highly recommend attending the event event if you’re not ready to adopt.”

Date: Sunday 10th July 2016.

Time: 11am to 1pm.

Location: Geelong Greyhound Racing Club, Beckley Park, Broderick Road, Corio.

Number of dogs available: Numbers are yet to be confirmed for the next Adoption Day. There unfortunately won’t be any cat-tolerant greyhounds available on the day, as these dogs are in such high demand.

Catering: A light lunch will be provided.

Meetings with your existing pet dogs: While generally encouraged, we are unfortunately unable to facilitate meetings between your existing dog and a greyhound at this Adoption Day. We are more than happy for this to happen, however please contact GAP directly (5799 0166) and we can organise to facilitate this on another day.

To Register: Registration to this event is essential. Please call (03) 8329 1124 or email and include your contact name, number of people attending, email and postcode.
