Twenty-four greyhounds found their ‘furever’ homes at the first adoption day at the Warragul Greyhound Racing Club on Sunday 5 August.

Over 200 people attended the adoption day looking to find a new family member or more information on the Greyhound Adoption Program.

Rob and Laura from Cranbourne North had been waiting since 5am to adopt Graham. The couple travelled to Seymour the previous Tuesday and instantly fell in love with the brindle boy.

“It was his beautiful gentle and kind nature. He is so placid but still has playful puppy nature about him,” Laura said.

Bonded pair Mickey and Peka found a new home with Melissa and Andy and their son Elijah. The family attended the event to find out more information about the program but they couldn’t deny the connection they had with the pair.

“We had always wanted to have two dogs and our friend who has a couple of GAP dogs couldn’t speak highly enough of the breed.”

Warragul locals Penny Ballantyne and David Miller adopted Mira. David who works with greyhounds on a regular basis as a vet nurse had heard about GAP and wanted to adopt a greyhound.

The Carmody family also from Warragul has been waiting for the past 16 years for the right time to adopt a greyhound. The whole family attended the adoption day to find the beautiful Fiona.

Adoption days aren’t the only way you can adopt a greyhound from GAP. The Seymour kennels are open Monday to Fridays from 8.30am to 4pm and Saturday’s by appointment.

GAP also has a Melbourne based facility in Baxter which is open on Saturdays and Sundays by appointment only.
