Greyhounds are affectionate and intelligent dogs. Each year many retire from racing and hope to start a new life as a pet. Greyhounds usually make this transition with ease and become devoted companions. As our 500 plus owners agree- a greyhound makes a very special addition to the family.
Greyhounds as pets (GAP) operates through two kennel bases, one in each island. Our greyhounds are carefully assessed and then matched with their new owners- we act a bit like a dating agency. Our greyhounds also visit our vet for a health check, neutering and microchipping, and we ensure that their vaccinations and council registrations are up to date.
Greyhounds as pets is a registered charity established by the racing industry to find pet homes for greyhounds which are no longer able to race.
When you adopt a Greyhound through GAP you receive much more than a dog.
Our adoption packages include:
* Full support and advise before and after adoption
* The GAP guide to adopting an ex-racing greyhound
* Temperment assessment to ensure your dog is suitable for your circumstances
* De- Sexing, microchipping and vaccinations
* Council registration
* Plus a free annual subscription to Fast Friends
