Greyhounds a hit at Midsumma Pride March

Greyhound Racing Victoria and its Greyhound Adoption Program were present once again at the Midsumma Pride March in St. Kilda on 4 February.

“GRV has been involved with the Midsumma Pride March since 2020,” announced GRV Chair Peita Duncan.

“This is our fourth year (of involvement) and we’re really proud of that because it’s really important as an industry and a sport to show that we are inclusive of anyone and everyone, and we’re a welcoming sport.

“We’re always very proud to come to this day.”

Only a small number of greyhounds took part in the march due to the excessive heat, and the dogs that were involved travelled in vehicles.

“People went absolutely crazy as soon as they saw the dogs with their heads out the windows of the cars.

“It’s a great day to promote the breed and to promote greyhound adoption,” Ms Duncan added.
