Greyhounds are ready to step up to support the force that protects WA.
Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) and the WA Police Union (WAPU) are proud to join in partnership to support the mental and physical health of officers. WAPU has over 7,000 serving members, and 1,300 retired members who will have the opportunity to adopt from Greyhounds as Pets.
The partnership, launched in June 2023, includes;
- Priority for current and retired WAPU members to be matched with suitable GAP greyhounds.
- Individualised post-adoption support to provide ongoing advice and ensure the dogs settle well into new homes and families.
- All greyhounds adopted from GAP are vet-checked, vaccinated, microchipped, sterilised, dewormed and have up to date dental care.
- Six months free food and vet insurance.
The Greyhounds as Pets program helps greyhounds make the transition from racing to new homes in retirement, with a tailored plan to suit the individual needs of each dog.
