Introducing GAP


The Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) is a national initiative preparing and promoting retired greyhounds as pets that Tasracing operates in Tasmania. Our goal is to prepare these loveable dogs to transition from elite athlete to couch potatoes and find a permanent home to suit them after retiring from their racing career. In addition, we aim to educate the public on what gentle and affectionate pets these dogs really are, encourage a more positive image of the greyhound and stimulate the public’s desire to own a greyhound as a family pet.

The Adoption Process

Adopting a Greyhound through GAP is a rewarding experience, and we're here to guide you every step of the way. Here's a simplified overview of the adoption process:
