GREYHOUNDS AS PETS UPDATE

News: We are currently asking all trainers/owners who expect to have their greyhound accepted into the GAP program in the next month to make sure their greyhound is up-to-date with vaccinations. During this time the $55 entry fee into GAP will be waved to help cover the cost of the C5 vaccination. Please ensure your greyhound is vaccinated 7 days prior to entering the program (this does not include pre-assessments). 
The increased quarantine measures are in place to protect a litter of puppies expected at GAP next week. GAP accepted a bitch into the program which was subsequently found to be pregnant.

Looking to retire your greyhound? Check out the chart below and start planning the transition.

Next available pre-assessment: 
Wait time from passed pre-assessment to entry into GAP:

17 October, 2017
Approximately eight

Please note: All greyhounds must be pre-assessed before entering GAP. 
A greyhound must not have raced 14 days prior to the date it is booked for pre-assessment.

Want to skip the waitlist? Ask us about our Trainer/Owner Assisted Adoption Program
Essentially this program provides all the benefits of rehoming a greyhound through GAP without the wait. After a passed pre-assessment, if you have found someone interested in adopting your greyhound they will skip the waitlist. You get the benefit of freeing your kennel up quicker and the new owner gets access to all the resources a GAP dog is entitled to including; sterilization, a Green Collar assessment, food, bed, muzzle, lead and support from our Animal Behaviourist. Get in contact with GAP to see how the Trainer/Owner Assisted Adoption Program can work for you – 9445 5399.
