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

Enigma

Male, 24/05/2017

I am a bit of an enigma in the fact I am a little unsure of other dogs as am still sussing out the fact that they come in different shapes of sizes. I am a shyer boy so would prefer a quieter home with someone home more often as think I would benefit from having someone to really bond with.
