In the Straight Adoption model 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 have specific requirements as to what they want their greyhound to have been exposed to, for example cats or other types of animals.

You are able to download a copy of the comprehensive manual all adoptees receive as part of the adoption process here.


The following outlines the steps for our Straight Adoption option:

  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 greyhounds’ 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% 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 our 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 for the entirety of its life.
