GAP’s first event of the New Year isn’t just an Adoption Day, it’s an entire weekend! Join us January 18 to 20 from 10am – 3pm at the GAP headquarters in Seymour where over 100 greyhounds will be available for adoption.
GAP has also decided to waive the adoption fees for the weekend. While GAP will still be following the same process to match greyhounds with the right owners, when a suitable adopter is found, they will be able to take home their new greyhound free of charge.
If you are interested in adopting a greyhound, GAP’s Adoption Days are the perfect opportunity to meet some amazing dogs and learn more about this beautiful breed.
GAP helps retired racing greyhounds, as well as greyhounds who have never raced, find forever homes. During the program, the greyhounds complete pet-skills training, such as walking on a lead and being in a home, and a temperament assessment to ensure they are safe around smaller dogs.
If a greyhound requires more time to adjust to life after racing, they are paired with a foster carer who meets their specific needs and can help them settle into a home. Once the greyhound has passed the program, they are given a green GAP collar and are ready for adoption.
GAP is the number one match-making program for greyhounds, as such we are committed to ensuring all the connections made through GAP are well suited for both the greyhound and the new owner. While GAP strives to achieve a perfect match from the outset, all adoptions are subject to a three-week trial period and greyhounds are always welcome back should you no longer be able to provide a home for them.
If you are interested in attending the adoption bonanza, please register for the event online. It is free to attend an adoption day and you will be sent more information, including a list of greyhounds available for adoption, closer to the date. Click here to register for the event.
Please note: Every day is an adoption day at GAP. If you are unable to attend the event in January, you can still visit our locations in Seymour (Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4pm, and Saturday by appointment) and Baxter (Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 2pm by appointment only) to meet and adopt greyhounds.
