GAP National Adoption Day – WA

Make a fast friend.
Adopt a greyhound.

The GAP National Adoption Day is back! After a successful first year we are again combining forces with all the national greyhound rehoming agencies to find furever homes for our lovely retired greyhounds.

If you’ve been wanting to learn more about adopting a fast friend then sign up to pre-register to adopt! Pre-registrations will be opening on our website soon.

Once you have registered you will be all set to join us at our Adoption Day at our GAP facility in Southern River, on Sunday 28 April 2019, to find your perfect match!

When: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Time: 10:00am to 2:00pm
Venue: Greyhounds as Pets Facility, 357 Furley Road, Southern River

Registration to this event is essential. Register today via the form below and see you and your family at the event!

NOTE: The list of available dogs will be announced closer to the event date – keep up-to-date on our Facebook page, we will also send out a list of greyhounds to the email address you register with.


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?
For more information please contact us on 9445 5399 or email

How do I register for the event?
