ADOPTION DAY: What a start to 2017!

A staggering 48 out of 50 greyhounds found loving homes today following our most successful Adoption Day ever held in Seymour.

The Adoption Day capped off an amazing start to the year for Victoria’s Greyhound Adoption Program, which has seen more than 60 greyhounds find homes in 2017 so far.

“We are overwhelmed with the success of today’s Adoption Day, it’s a great outcome to see 48 greyhounds find new families,” Greyhound Adoption Program Manager Larissa Hubbard said.

“We have never held an Adoption Day in January before so it was great to see such a large turnout of people.”

“The great thing about holding Adoption Days here at Seymour is that potential adopters can bring their own pet dogs to meet the greyhounds,”

“We have approximately 30 new greyhounds arriving this week so there will be plenty more greyhounds for potential adopters to meet. Virtually every day is an Adoption Day here at Seymour.”

“Everyone here at GAP would like to take the time to thank the volunteers, because without their hard work and dedication a day like today wouldn’t have been possible,” Larissa concluded.

To make an appointment to meet some of our greyhounds up for adoption either at out Seymour headquarters or our facility on the Morning Peninsula, please call the Greyhound Adoption Program on 5799 0166.



Unfortunately kennel favourite Starlight (pictured) missed out on finding a new home today. This special six-year-old beauty may only have one eye but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to become somebody’s loving companion.
