Discover the appeal of this amazing breed!
We’re providing an opportunity for people interested in fostering or adopting a greyhound to come along for a walk on Sunday 20 March 2016.
We’ll be meeting in the carpark near the corner of Conway and Murray Streets in Mowbray at 11:30 am.
We then head off around the perimeter of the serene Heritage forest pathway for a casual stroll offering people the opportunity to chat.
GAP Tasmania coordinator Susan Gittus is keen to provide an opportunity for people to meet a greyhound and take them for a walk and a play.
“We want people to find out for themselves what a greyhound is really like,” she said.
“There will be greyhounds waiting for adoption and foster carers and recent adopters who can talk about their own experiences.” Mrs Gittus said rugs and collars would also be available to buy to “glam up” your greyhound.
GAP Tasmania operates under the Tasracing umbrella and works to help greyhounds find a permanent pet home after retiring from racing.
“One of our key focuses is to educate the public on what a gentle and affectionate pet greyhounds are,” Mrs Gittus said.
“Events like this provide the perfect forum to do this.”
Greyhounds need to remain on lead and with muzzles as per current state law requirements.
