About GAP Tas

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.

GAP Tas Story

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.

Behind the Scenes

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.

Green Collar

GAP Tas undertake muzzle free assessments on all greyhounds available for adoption and provide a special GAP green collar to signify the greyhound, if successful, is approved to be muzzle free in public.
