“From the moment we messaged GAP they were quick to respond and answer all my quirky questions and requests. Five months on and we couldn’t be happier. She is the perfect companion to our small elderly terrier too! We would highly recommend welcoming a greyhound into your home and hearts.”

Dianne Smith, adoptive owner of Zarni

“GAP have supported our family through two adoptions for our two beautiful greyhounds. The love and care they have for each dog is incredible. Every success can be attributed to their wonderful staff, volunteers, programs and foster carers.”

“You have given us a beautiful grey in Bear! We love him to bits and he’s fitted in perfectly with us. He surprised us with how quickly he adapted to us and our routine. He was toilet trained in a couple of days and has been friendly and gentle with children, adults and the many animals he’s met in the two weeks we’ve had him.”
