In 2009 GRNSW established its own re-homing program - Greyhounds as Pets (GAP). The aim of GAP is to:
• Provide an avenue for people to adopt former racing greyhounds;
• Educate participants on the options for their greyhound after racing; and
• Promote the merits of greyhounds as a pet to the wider community.
In addition to re-homing greyhounds into domestic households, GAP has also worked with a number of partners for greyhounds to be used as therapy dogs in retirement homes and special needs facilities.
For more on Greyhounds As Pets, including information on how to adopt a greyhound, visit the website at www.gapnsw.com.au
Membership is free and will allow you to stay up to date with all the latest information about greyhound racing as well as access to most areas of the website.
