Searching for dogs for sale in NSW? Why not adopt a dog, greyhounds make perfect pets!
Dog adoption is the perfect solution for people who don’t want to worry about house training a dog, or being anxious of how the dog will behave around children. While dogs for sale in NSW may be an attractive option, dog adoption has many practical benefits.
This is why we are proud to announce that Kellyville Pets is partnering once again with Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) to bring you our Greyhound Adoption Day. Our next adoption day will be on Saturday, November 10, 2018 between 9am and 1pm.
Click here to go to the GAPNSW website and view the greyhounds that are available for adoption or fostering.
Sign up to our Pet Lovers Newsletter to receive updates and information about future adoption days we will be hosting.
We will hold a meet and greet between 9am to 1pm with these four legged friends so you can interact and learn more about them and potentially welcome one into your home. There is paperwork to be completed prior to adopting a greyhound, so if you are interested, please go to gapnsw.com.au to complete your application form.
Greyhounds As Pets is a not-for-profit organisation that re-homes retired race dogs via a 6-step program that matches you with a greyhound suitable to your lifestyle.
Dogs accepted into Greyhounds As Pets are first checked by a veterinarian and behaviourally assessed for suitability as a pet. They are then settled into pet life through a 6 week foster care program, where they learn house manners including toilet training. Greyhounds are then ready to be placed into loving homes.
If you’re looking to adopt a dog, look no further than a greyhoundGentle Temperament
Retired greyhounds are gentle, highly affectionate dogs that prefer to lounge around the house (sleeping up to 20 hours a day), making them the perfect house pet. Greyhounds rarely bark and are more likely to retreat from enthusiastic children rather than snapping or growling at them.Healthy Breed
Greyhounds are renowned for their superior health, particularly amongst large breed dogs. Unlike any other breed, greyhounds have been selectively bred for performance not appearance. Serious health problems associated with large dogs such as hip dysplasia are almost unheard of amongst greyhounds. Greyhounds live an average 12 to 14 years.Cheap To Feed
Greyhounds are smaller eaters, a balanced diet of pet mince and kibble with the occasional serve of veggies will keep them well fed. It can cost as little as $10/week to keep a greyhounds belly full.Low Exercise Demand
Greyhounds don’t need vast amounts of space, in fact they thrive in smaller urban spaces where they prefer to roll up into a ball and sleep the day away. Despite the common perception that greyhounds are full of energy and therefore need long walks, greyhounds actually expel energy in short bursts. A 15-20 minute daily walk will keep them happy.Minimal Grooming
Greyhounds are very low maintenance. They have short coats with very little oil in their skin, which means they have minimal shedding and don’t have the trademark ‘dog smell’. For this reason a bath 2-3 times a year is more than enough to keep your pooch clean.
