About this organisation

Gippsland Greyhounds was started solely to help re-home the racing dogs, post racing, in the Gippsland area and throughout the rest of the state of Victoria. We have the full support of the Gippsland Veterinary Hospital who specialise in greyhound care and Dishlicker Coats who specialise in quality greyhound coats and accessories. Dogs are chosen on their temperament and behaviour. Every dog receives a full vet check from the Gippsland Veterinary Hospital and is in good health and condition before being fostered or adopted to a new home.

Prior to the dogs being re-homed as a family pet for permanent adoption, all our greyhounds go into a foster care home to provide guidance and training for the dog in it’s new life as a pet, learning how to live in a domestic home. Lovely natured and extremely quiet and obedient, these peaceful dogs are suitable for young people and families, as well as being excellent company for more elderly owners as they require minimal exercise each day.
