Bunbury Prison Program

Famous! GAP greyhounds Trigger and Blaze made their TV debutĀ on ABC South West promoting our Bunbury Prison Program.

Retired greyhounds Blaze and Trigger have recently been released from Bunbury Regional Prison, where they have spent several weeks learning how to be pets.

The Bunbury Prison Program sees prisoners care for GAP foster greyhounds around the clock, teaching them basic obedience and helping them transition to pet life.

The program has been so successful at the prison pre-release unit that it is set to be expanded into the medium security prison in the coming weeks.

At the Bunbury facility inmates live in shared houses and are required to cook, clean and shop for themselves. This makes it an ideal place for the dogs to learn house rules because it is similar to a home environment.

While in the program the greyhounds learn basic obedience and household manners while the prisoners are entrusted with the responsibility of caring for the dogs, assisting them in preparing for life on the outside.
