By taking the straight adoption path you are adopting a greyhound that has passed its green collar assessment and spent a minimum of four weeks in foster care. This option is suitable for people who want to know their greyhound has experience with a range of environments and situations such as being introduced to cats or other types of animals.

Here are the steps for straight adoption:

  1. Fill in the online application which tells us everything we need to know about you and your lifestyle.
  2. Wait patiently as we match you to your perfect greyhound.
  3. Your greyhound will come de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and vet checked.
  4. You will receive a lead, collar, worming treatment and a comprehensive document outlining your greyhound’s history and personality.
  5. We offer a 28 day ‘road test’ period for you to see if the greyhound fits with your family. During this period, you can return the greyhound for a 50 per cent refund of the adoption price. Our adoption fee is $350.
  6. GAP will provide you with a high level of support both during and after the adoption, with access to an animal behaviourist if needed.
  7. Should the situation arise where you need to find your greyhound a new home, regardless of the amount of time passed since the adoption, please contact GAP for assistance. GAP is committed to ensuring that the greyhound has a suitable home throughout life.
