The GAP mission is to find responsible permanent loving homes for retired racing greyhounds, to provide for their health and welfare and to educate people about the availability and absolute suitability of greyhounds as pets.
Countless numbers of greyhounds become available for adoption each year, and because the public are largely unaware of the magnificent, warm and affectionate nature of these dogs they don't consider them as an alternative for a pet. By generating a more positive perception of the breed, GAP aims to find responsible, caring and loving permanent homes for these greyhounds who have truly earned their retirement.
All GAP greyhounds are Temperament Tested, Sterilised, C5 Vaccinated, Wormed, Micro Chipped and come with a lead, collar, muzzle and plenty of support from GAP.
GAP is initially funded by an industry contribution from RWWA based on a percentage of total greyhound stakes. The level of funding is re-assessed by RWWA on a yearly basis. Greyhounds WA, who host the programme on-course at Cannington, also make a significant contribution towards the running of the programme by the provision of additional funding and services. Various other sponsors and profits generated from the sale of merchandise further supplement GAP funding.
