A “50 Shades of Grey” adoption promotion ending next Sunday (25 March) is aimed at finding new homes for 30 greyhounds from the RSPCA Victoria’s Animal Care Centres.
RSPCA Victoria animal care manager Liz Walker said the dogs had distinct personalities. “We have excitable, attention-seeking greys through to docile, shy gentle giants,” Ms Walker said.
Most are exempt from having to wear muzzles in public and come with a reduced $50 adoption fee.
“Greyhounds are intelligent, friendly dogs with a gentle and sensitive temperament. They are well suited to a variety of different lifestyles and homes, which is why they continue to be one of our most popular dogs among those adopting,” Ms Walker said.
“Although they are often bred for sprinting, most greyhounds do not require much exercise and will happily curl up on their owner’s couch.”
The RSPCA Peninsula Centre is at 1030 Robinsons Road, Pearcedale.
