GAP National Adoption Day – WA

You could be their next victory…

Win first place in their heart and adopt a greyhound at this year’s GAP National Adoption Day, on Sunday 19 April 2020.

The GAP National Adoption Day sees all states across Australia come together in a nation-wide push to boost awareness of greyhounds as pets.

Greyhounds are affectionate and sweet natured dogs who love human companionship. Despite their big appearance, greyhounds don’t need vast amounts of space, in fact they thrive in urban spaces. They are very adaptable and equally suited to large properties, suburban homes, units and even apartments. They are low maintenance pets who enjoy a 15-20 minute walk each day, and sleep for up to 20 hours per day.

Adoptions through GAP are usually $350, but for National Adoption Day they are discounted to $75!

What can/can’t I bring to the event?
All you need is yourself!

Can I bring my pet dog with me?
Unfortunately, we are unable to facilitate meetings between your current pet and potential greyhound so please leave them at home. If you would like your current pet to meet the potential new greyhound, please arrange this separately with GAP.

Will there be cat-tolerant greyhounds available for adoption?
Unfortunately, due to these greyhounds being in high demand there won’t be any cat-tolerant greyhounds available on the day for adoption. If you would like to adopt a cat-tolerant greyhound, please contact GAP directly on 9445 5399.

What greyhounds are up for adoption?
In the week leading up to the event, we will publish the list of greyhounds that will be available on the day, which we will post on this page closer to the event. However, if you register prior to Friday 26 April, you will also receive an email by Saturday 27 April, with information regarding the day which includes the list of greyhounds available.

Can I have a greyhound held for me and just pick up on the day?
We cannot hold a greyhound(s) for you. Remember every day is an Adoption Day at GAP, so if you don’t get the greyhound you are looking for don’t worry. There are more coming through the program on a weekly basis, so the right one will come along eventually, you just need to give it time.

What happens if I miss out on the day?
Unfortunately, we will only have a set number of greyhounds available on the day therefore, with the popularity of them, there is a chance you will miss out on adopting a greyhound. It is important to remember though; every day is an Adoption Day at GAP. If you don’t get the greyhound(s) you would like, don’t forget there are more coming through the program on a weekly basis. The right greyhound will come along, it just may take some time so don’t be discouraged.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
