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.
If you are interested in adopting on the day, please CLICK HERE to fill out the adoption application. The form needs to be filled out in addition to registering to attend the event.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
All you need is yourself!
Can I bring my pet dog with me?
Unfortunately, we are unable to facilitate meetings between your current pet and potential greyhound so please leave them at home. If you would like your current pet to meet the potential new greyhound, please arrange this separately with GAP where you can do this at the Seymour or Baxter properties. Other arrangements may be able to be made if these two locations do not suit but you'll need to speak with GAP.
Will there be cat tolerant greyhounds available for adoption?
Unfortunately, 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?
In the week leading up to the event we will publish the list of greyhounds that will be available on the day, which can be found on the GAP Adoption Day webpage on GAPs website. However, if you register you will also receive an email the day before the event with information regarding the day which includes the list of greyhounds available.
Can I have a greyhound held for me and just pick 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 there don't forget there are more in the kennels and coming through the program on a weekly basis.
What happens if I miss out on the day?
Unfortunately, we can only transport a certain number of greyhounds to these events. With the popularity of them, there is a chance you will miss out on adopting a greyhound. It is important to remember though; every day is an Adoption Day at GAP. If you don't get the greyhound/s you would like, don't forget there are more in the kennels and coming through the program on a weekly basis.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
For more information please visit the GAP Adoption Days page on our website. You can also contact Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org or 03 8329 1124.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Ideally it would be great if you did but no, you don't need to bring your printed ticket. We can still check you in without it.
When & Where
Greyhound Adoption Program
The Greyhound Adoption Program, or GAP, is an initiative of Greyhound Racing Victoria dedicated to finding homes for greyhounds. Greyhounds make fantastic pets – they are quiet, lazy and gentle dogs that thrive in the family home environment. Greyhounds that have passed through our program and have been awarded a special green GAP collar and do not have to be muzzled in public.
