The National Greyhound Adoption Day will be held this Sunday at Wentworth Park, Glebe.
Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) are putting the final touches on their preparations for the day, with 50 greyhounds making their way to the event looking to find their forever home.
GAP Re-homing Manager Kyle Maher is preparing for a busy day. “50 greyhounds will be the most we have ever had at an adoption day and I can’t wait to see the atmosphere that this creates. These days are always filled with such positivity, it’s always really pleasing to see so many dogs find new loving families” Kyle said.
With the event having so many greyhounds available, and with so much interest in the day from prospective adopters, GAP have released the ‘Dog-a-log’ of greyhounds available on the day. This document contains the profiles of all 50 dogs attending on Sunday, allowing you to establish which greyhounds may be best fit with your family and lifestyle.
The great news is: your greyhound greyhound is most likely to have a great set of teeth. After all, with that well-sized jawline, there’s plenty of room for them to grow and thrive. But just like we humans, our four-legged friends need to clean their teeth regularly. Read more

Easter is fast approaching and as always, there will be plenty of chocolate consumed in households all over the country. For humans, chocolate is a tasty treat and the only danger it poses is to our waistlines. However, the risks it poses to our furry friends is much greater. Read more
Greyhounds are, by nature, incredibly friendly and gentle with children. They enjoy attention and they can be the greatest play mates. However, sometimes, like our other four legged friends, greyhounds can get stressed for reasons we humans don’t quite understand.
This means that no matter how relaxed your greyhound is with little people (or ANY other dog), it’s essential that whenever dogs and kids get together, there’s an adult supervising… an adult who is as good at identifying ‘happy play’ as they are at detecting unexpected signs of disinterest, anxiety or stress.
