GAP: The ‘Australian Welfare Flagship’ recognised at the MCG

Victoria’s Greyhound Adoption Program has been recognised within the Australian Sports Museum at Melbourne’s MCG, as an ‘Australian Welfare Flagship.’

In a display mounted to celebrated 150 years of greyhound racing in Victoria, the story of GAP is represented by memorabilia, photographs and a timeline of the remarkable events of GAP’s history.

At the launch of the installations at the ASM, more than 150 people representing greyhound racing heard of the importance of GAP and the example the organisation has set for adoption agencies world-wide.

Among the audience were also GAP dogs and their owners, including long-time volunteer Kelli Reynolds and the very charming ‘Denim’ (pictured), who worked the crowd effortlessly and even delighted some of the ASM staff, one of whom said she ‘had met hundreds of sport stars but these are just the best!’

The GAP display, plus those relating to coursing, and champions Wow She’s Fast, ‘Kings of the Cups’ Tangaloa and Royal Rumpus, will be on display at the museum until April 30, 2024.
