While we were at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk we met some amazing people and learnt about the work they do to benefit the lives of dogs.
This particular group, Greyhounds As Pets, touched our hearts after hearing what they do for their retired Greyhounds! Greyhounds As Pets is a not-for-profit initiative coordinated by Greyhound Racing NSW. The program aims to provide families with a pet that is ideally suited to their needs while giving those Greyhounds not suited to racing, or ready to retire from their life as an athlete, a new home. Their objective is to improve animal welfare in the Greyhound racing industry by providing dogs with a ‘career change’ if they are not suited to, or are ready to retire from, the racing industry.
We met this pair of inseparable best friends, April and Pirate, who are both currently up for adoption! View their page here!
Greyhounds As Pets will also be holding a Greyhound Adoption Day very soon in conjunction with Kellyville Pets on Saturday 30th May 2015 from 10am-2pm. Information will be provided on becoming a Foster Carer and how to go about adopting one these amazing companions. More information here.
