WHY ADOPT A GREYHOUND FROM US?

Great pets

Greyhounds make great pets, they are quiet, well mannered, and very easy to live with. They are friendly, lazy, calm, affectionate, clean, loving, trusting, good-natured and very social.

Low maintenance

Greyhounds require less exercise than people think, they also have very little odour and shed minimally. Head to our FAQ page for more greyhound myth busters!

Green Collar

Once you have been issued a Green Collar your greyhound will not need to wear a muzzle in public. We are the only rehoming group in WA able to issue a muzzle exemption in the form of
a Green Collar.

Twice as fun

Greyhounds love the company of other dogs. If you are looking for a companion for an existing dog, a greyhound is the perfect addition to your family.

“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.”

Kelly Cracknell, adoptive owner or Lorelli and Winston

“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.”

Jill, adoptive owner of Bear

GREYHOUNDS READY FOR ADOPTION

Jingle

Female, 23/02/2018

You can tell from my playful antics that I’m only a puppy and would love a family looking for a younger dog to train and grow up alongside. I think I would do best in a home with another medium to large sized dog to play with or could be okay if someone was home most of the time.

Treacle

Female, 22/02/2017

I’m a young girl who would do really well in an experienced household who want a puppy to train and grow up with.

Lochie

Male, 27/11/2015

I’m a homebody kind of guy and would prefer a home where someone is there most of the time – I don’t think I could cope being left alone for long periods. I am a little picky with my doggy friends but pending introductions can be fine living with them (I am currently living with several other greyhounds).

Samurai

Male, 19/10/2016

I know I have a tough name… but I’m actually a bit of a cuddly sook and absolutely adore spending time with my human friends.

Lerch

Male, 25/06/2015

I’m a sweet boy who would need a quieter home as I can become overwhelmed in noisy, bustling environments. I can take a little while to get to know people but I promise my sweet, cuddly personality is certainly worth the wait.

Trix

Male, 06/01/2018

I’m big in size and personality and have a really outgoing, friendly, ‘I love everyone’ demeanour. I don’t turn two until the new year so I’m still only really a puppy and am still learning my lead manners and how to walk appropriately (I don’t realise how large a puppy I am!).

Butler

Male, 09/01/2013

I’m a butler in every sense of the word, I’m a gentleman, suave and in my opinion quite regal looking. I am pretty confident in my own company so don’t mind going as the only dog and think with the right enrichment and set up I could be okay with a working family.

Yoda

Male, 28/10/2015

Meet me you must, adopt me you will.. I’m an absolute sweetie pie of a Jedi and while it can take me a little while to get to know people once I do I am full of cuddles and kisses (especially if there is treats).

Kringle

Male, 11/09/2017

At just over two years old I’m at that great sponge ‘teach me things’ stage so would benefit from a household whom are happy to work with me while I adjust to a home environment.
