The biggest pub in Perth, The Camfield, is hosting the biggest gathering of greyhound lovers to celebrate National Greyhound Adoption Month.

On Saturday, April 13th, Greyhounds as Pets WA and its Ambassador, Perth Wildcats legend, Damian Martin, will host two events allowing adopters and greyhound lovers to get together and raise awareness for National Greyhound Adoption Month.

National Greyhound Adoption Month ‘Greyt’ Walk

Keen to meet up with some fellow greyhound adopters?

Meeting on the grass at the front of The Camfield, greyhounds and their adopted humans will enjoy a social riverside stroll through Chevron Parkland.

To help celebrate National Greyhound Adoption Month, there will be gifts given out on the day for both dogs and people. Greyhounds as Pets WA also encourage owners to come along in their best dog and adopter matchy-matchy combinations. If that’s a little much for you, you can just dress up your greyhound and share some adorable snaps on Instagram.

National Greyhound Adoption Month Meet & Greet

Saturday, April 13th from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

After the ‘Greyt’ Walk, The Camfield beer garden will see greyhounds adopted through Greyhounds as Pets WA ready to charm the people of Perth.

Families are encouraged to attend, with games, face painting, and giveaways throughout the day.

Then from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, National Greyhound Adoption Month Ambassador, Damian Martin, will be there to chat all things greyhounds and autograph your Wildcats swag.

“I know cats and dogs aren’t traditionally best mates but greyhounds get along with everyone, even this Wildcat,” Damian Martin said.

“Greyhounds are quirky characters with big personalities and they’re wonderful entertainers, winning fans everywhere they go. I’m a bit jealous, actually.”

Throughout April, Damian Martin will be catching up with adopted greyhounds and their families, sharing their insights about greyhound adoption.

About Greyhound Adoption Month

There’s no better time to start meeting potential adoptees than this April — Greyhound Adoption Month. During this time, Greyhounds as Pets WA is raising awareness of its rehoming program, post-race-retirement. All adoption fees during the month have been reduced to just $75.00 from $200.00. It’s a small price to pay to find your new best friend and give a greyhound a happy forever home.

There are two ways that you can go about adoption:

  1. Fostering to adopt — which involves introducing a behaviour-tested greyhound into your home and gently easing it into its new life. If you’re a good match for each other, you can then welcome it into your family on a permanent basis. 
  2. Straight adoption — dogs who’ve been through the fostering process are available for a straight adoption and adoption to regional homes.

Greyhounds are matched to their new homes based on their individual needs to ensure it’s the perfect fit for both the greyhound and its new family.
