Introducing GAP


The Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) is run by the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) and is dedicated to finding homes for greyhounds that have retired from racing.

It is our mission to:

  • Find suitable, loving, homes for retired racing greyhounds. Encourage a more positive image of the greyhound and to stimulate the public’s desire to own a greyhound as a family pet.
  • Train and prepare greyhounds for life as family pets.
  • Provide ongoing advice and support to the greyhound and its new owners.

We at the GAP know that greyhounds make fantastic pets. As with any breed of dog, they are individuals with unique personalities. Some are high energy, excitable and affectionate, others are laid back, calm and reserved. However, in general greyhounds are best described as quiet and gentle dogs that thrive in a family home environment.

We believe there is a greyhound to suit almost every situation. Whether you prefer an outgoing dog who enjoys obedience training or playing fetch with the kids for example, or you want a calm and sensitive companion, we have a greyhound for you!
