Over 100 Greyhounds currently waiting to begin life after retirement

Kennels are almost at capacity, meaning the need for new foster carers is greater than ever before!

Until December 31st 2019, Little Heroes Foundation is partnering with the Greyhound Adoption Program SA on a joint campaign called Hounds For Heroes. The mission is to help find 100 foster carers for these gentle canines and allow them to adjust to life after retirement.

The beauty about this program is that everything is supplied to you – all you need to do is provide a loving home environment, patience and understanding for your new companion, as it is highly likely that they have never stepped foot into a home before.  

Greyhounds are quick learners and 6 weeks is the average length of time it takes for them to successfully graduate to their green collar. Once they have successfully achieved their green collar status, and if you originally applied through our special ‘Hounds For Heroes’ application form (button below), GAPSA will donate $1,000 towards our ongoing projects and programs.

With over 100 greyhounds waiting to start life after retirement, these kennels are almost at capacity, meaning the need for foster carers is greater than ever before. We strongly urge you to fill in an application form and begin the process of being matched with a greyhound that suits your lifestyle, as well as making a difference to the lives of our Little Heroes.
