2022-23 USA Adoptions
June 8th, 2022 finally arrived and the hard work of R2R's volunteers enabled the first six greyhounds to fly from Melbourne to Los Angeles. R2R's Vice President flew out the day before to ensure we were there to meet all our first post covid flights!
These photos share the journey of R2R's first 3 flights in June. An initiative to partner with American volunteer Adoption groups to find pet homes for Australian greyhounds.
These flights have continued through 2023 with more USA Rehoming groups partnering with R2R.
