Residents interested in adopting or fostering a rescue greyhound will be able to experience 'hound love' firsthand on Sunday, May 6 at Camden Paws in the Park.
Greyhound Rescue moved from Sydney to Camden earlier in the year.
Rescue founder Janet Flann said they will have adoptable Greyhounds at the event from 9am-1pm, together with volunteers who can answer questions.
“We invite locals to come and meet some lovely, placid and sweet-natured greyhounds,” she said.
“They can also talk to us about what it's like volunteering at our kennels near Camden.
“We still need more regular volunteers for Saturday mornings – this is a very busy period, with all the usual chores, as well as people coming in and out to meet dogs.
“We could also do with a few more generous folk willing to do week-day morning shifts.”
Ms Flann said their greyhounds are de-sexed, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated.
“They are $350 each – the adoption fee goes towards all these medical costs.”
Rescue co-founder Peter Flann said people should not be put off by the muzzle greyhounds wear because they can become Greenhounds.
"Almost all greyhounds pass the test to become Greenhounds,” he said.
“This means they don't have to wear a muzzle – at the moment, NSW is stuck with an old law from the 1930s which requires muzzles, despite the fact the RSPCA recommends against breed-specific legislation of this type.”
People who are interested in adopting or fostering should complete an application form at greyhoundrescue.com.au.
