Greyhound Adoption Day

Now is the time to
adopt a greyhound!

When: Saturday 21 October

Time: 2.00 – 3.00 pm

Where: Ballarat GRC

Join us on Saturday 21 October for our upcoming GAP Adoption Day in Ballarat from 2 – 3 pm.

Around 20 wonderful greyhounds will be available for adoption.

Adoption Days are a great opportunity to not only adopt, but to get up close and personal with a long dog.

There are plenty of friendly and expert staff on hand throughout the day to answer any questions you may have about our wonderful, funny, charismatic, sleepy, lovable, goofy, entertaining, couch-loving (we may have got carried away with the adjectives) breed.

Whether you are looking to become a Pawrent for the first time, or are going to sibling number two, three, four or five, we would love to see you in Ballarat for our October GAP Adoption Day.

Register today!


Can I bring my pet dog with me?

No, unfortunately there is no availability to conduct introductions with your pet dogs and a greyhound on the day. If you wish to organise a meet-and-greet, please book an appointment for another date at Seymour or Tullamarine.

Will there be cat-tolerant greyhounds available for adoption?

Unfortunately no, 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?

A Dogalogue will be sent to you prior to the event with information on all the greyhounds available for adoption. The greyhounds will be split into categories so you have an idea of what dogs might best suit your family.

Can I have a greyhound held for me and just pick it 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. More greyhounds come through the program every week, so the right one will come along eventually. You just need to give it time.

What happens if I miss out on adopting a greyhound on the day?

If you don’t get the greyhound(s) you would like, don’t forget there are more coming through GAP weekly. The right greyhound will come along, it just may take some time, so don’t be discouraged.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you don’t need to bring your printed ticket. We can still check you in without it.

Do I have to adopt a greyhound on the day?

No, you don’t. Adoption Days are also a great opportunity to meet the breed for the first time and ask our friendly and knowledgeable staff any questions you may have.

This could be you 🙂
