Introducing GAP


An initiative of Greyhound Racing SA, Greyhounds As Pets (formerly the Greyhound Adoption Program SA) – affectionately known as GAP SA - is a non-profit organisation dedicated to finding homes for both retired and non-racing greyhounds and also educating the public about the gentle nature of the breed.

Through increased public awareness, GAP SA aims to educate people about greyhounds by showing them as they really are: affectionate, gentle animals who thrive on human companionship.

Established in 1997, GAP SA has worked tirelessly to rehome more and more greyhounds each year. Our mission is to ensure that all unraced and retired greyhounds are afforded the opportunity of finding a permanent, loving home.
