Foster Carer Application

The Greyhound Adoption Program Tasmania is a program operated by Tasracing on a not-for-profit basis, which places greyhounds no longer suitable for racing into pet homes. Before being adopted, the greyhounds may be fostered for a period of time in order to help them to adjust to life in a domestic environment.

Greyhounds from GAP Tasmania have been temperament tested, vet checked and wormed before entering your home where they will be introduced to pet dog life for at least 3 weeks.

Please take the time to complete the Foster Carer Registration and our admin staff will contact you to discuss finding a greyhound for you to foster.

If you do not receive a response within 7 days, please check your spam or junk folders. To prevent the email from being sent through to your spam or junk folders please add to your address book.

Form should be filled out by people residing in Tasmania only.
