Introducing GAP


GAP Victoria, is the most well known of GRV’s initiatives aimed at finding loving family homes for greyhounds who have retired from the racetrack. Our objectives are clear:

  1. Facilitate the placement of retired racing greyhounds into suitable, caring households.
  2. Promote a positive perception of greyhounds and foster public interest in adopting them as cherished family companions.
  3. Provide comprehensive training and preparation for greyhounds transitioning into domestic life.
  4. Offer ongoing guidance and assistance to both the greyhounds and their new families.

At GAP, we recognise the exceptional qualities of greyhounds as pets. While each greyhound possesses its own distinct personality traits, they generally exhibit traits of tranquility and gentleness that complement a family setting.

We firmly believe there's a greyhound for every lifestyle. Whether you seek an active and playful companion for outdoor activities or a serene and affectionate friend for quiet moments at home, GAP Victoria is dedicated to matching you with the perfect greyhound companion.
