GREYHOUNDS AS PETS UPDATE

News:

  • To increase the speed greyhounds can move through the GAP program it is now a requirement for all greyhounds entering GAP to have a current C5 vaccination (this does not include pre-assessments). This added requirement has been in place over the past few months as an increased quarantine measure due to a litter of puppies at the kennels and while not originally intended to be continued, up-to-date vaccinations has increased efficiency of the program. This requirement brings GAP in line with National GAP standards.
  • Christmas closure: GAP will be closed for pre-assessments from December 21 – January 8. During this period no pre-assessments will be available, dogs will still be entering the program as spaces become available. 

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 you 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.

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

Next available pre-assessment: December 11, 2017

Wait time from passed pre-assessment to entry into GAP: Approximately nine weeks

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.
