Hounds for Heroes
Little Heroes Foundation is excited to be partnering with the Greyhound Adoption Program SA, an organisation that aims to help re-home retired greyhounds within the local community.
Until December 31st 2019, people and families who are interested in helping foster a greyhound for 6 weeks that register through our Little Heroes Application Form will see a GAPSA make a $1,000 donation to Little Heroes Foundation when their greyhound passes their Green Collar Assessment. That’s right! All you have to do is help a greyhound find their forever home and at the same time, you will be making a difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families right here in SA!
So why become a foster carer? Will it work for me and my family?
Foster caring is a great option for those who cannot or do not wish to have a dog full time, or who just love extra canine company! As part of the fostering process, once registered through our form, the team at GAPSA will match you with a greyhound that suits your current circumstances. This includes whether you have existing pets or small children in the home.
What is provided?
All essentials are provided as part of the fostering program, such as food, their bed, a coat for the winter months, a collar, and a lead. Everything you need to be a successful foster carer is provided to you free of charge!
What do I need to do?
Greyhounds thrive in a loving home during their foster period, as it helps them make the adjustment during their transition into domestic life. Depending on your circumstances, a greyhound is usually placed with you within approximately 2 weeks of your successful application. Once your greyhound has passed their Green Collar Assessment, it generally takes about 1-2 weeks of matching to find your new canine ‘graduate’ their forever home.
