Our goal is to find suitable, loving, homes for retired racing greyhounds. Encourage a more positive image of the greyhound and stimulate the public’s desire to own a greyhound as a family pet.
The Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) is a national initiative preparing and promoting retired greyhounds as pets that Tasracing operates in Tasmania. Our goal is to prepare these loveable dogs to transition from elite athlete to couch potatoes and find a permanent home to suit them after retiring from their racing career, as well as educate the public on what gentle and affectionate pets these dogs really are.
GAP is run by a dedicated and professional team of passionate dog-lovers that feel strongly about the welfare of Greyhounds. GAP work tirelessly and lovingly to work with each and every Greyhound to provide the dogs with the tools they need in their transition into pet life.
GAP Tas undertake green collar assessments on all greyhounds available for adoption and provide a special GAP green collar to show the greyhound has successfully passed the program.
GAP Tas is run by Lianne Salerno and a team of people passionate about greyhounds and about educating the wider community that greyhounds make wonderful pets. Lianne and the team are happy to assist prospective and new greyhound owners in any way.
The GAP Tas team are some of the nicest people you will meet and they will provide the highest level of assistance when discussing greyhound adoption and fostering queries. Lianne and the GAP Tas team welcome your enquires.
