There were plenty of pats, cuddles and treats for the gorgeous greyhounds who recently visited MYLI Drouin Library for a Greyhound Adoption Program VIC (GAP) information session.
Sean, who attended the event on behalf of GAP, discussed all aspects of greyhound ownership (including their love of sleep!), and how the GAP adoption process works. Greyhounds Marshall, Timmy and Moo Moo came along to the talk with their owners, which allowed attendees to see the dogs up close and marvel at their gentle nature, and ask the handlers questions.
This event was part of the Libraries for Health and Wellbeing campaign, an initiative of Public Libraries Victoria and State Library Victoria. Studies have found that pet ownership can reduce stress and loneliness, provide companionship and increase social interaction.
