Mount Gambier Adoption and Foster Day

Mount Gambier Adoption and Foster Day

Sep 12, 2022

GAP SA is hosting our very first Adoption and Foster Day in Mount Gambier 

Saturday the 15th of October

1pm-4pm

Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club - Tara Raceway, Lake Terrace East, Mount Gambier, SA


GAP SA's Adoption and Foster Day is the perfect opportunity for you to come down to the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club, meet some of the greyhounds, learn more about what goes into the adoption and fostering process, and potentially adopt a greyhound to add to your family.

The event is held at the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club and the gates will be open from 1 pm - 4 pm

No appointments are necessary, just come along between those times! If you are interested in potentially adopting* you can also fill out an Expression of Interest form and we will contact you.

*Please ensure you bring along pictures of your yard and fencing if you have not applied in the past, as this is a requirement.
