Pat all the narrow-faced pooches at Melbourne’s first greyhound adoption café

Located on King Street in West Melbourne, the Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) Café is Melbourne’s first greyhound adoption café.

Here you’ll be able to hang out with these adorable skinny-legged friends while digging into doughnuts and puppychinos from Campos roaster coffee. Hop on one of the café’s tablets and browse all the adorable greyhounds that are up for adoption while you sip. Even if you’re not in the market for a new pup, dog owners are able to bring their own pet pooches, regardless of the breed, to visit the café.

GAP works closely with the Victorian racing industry to take in ex-racing dogs, prepare them for life as a pet, then match them with the right owner from their adoption centre.
