Adopt a Senior Pet Month is widely celebrated in the States and the UK. This year, GAP NSW is raising awareness in Australia by highlighting its Senior Greyhounds searching for new homes. During the month, GAP is reducing adoption fees for all its senior dogs (over 7yrs) to $100.
It often takes longer to rehome older dogs as people are not aware of their many benefits.
They know the basics (have outgrown puppy behaviours, walk well on leash and know the basic obedience commands)
They have developed social skills and often lived in homes before
Their personality is developed and you will know quickly if they are a good fit for you and your family
They've usually spent more time in GAP care being trained by our team to transition smoothly to being a pet
Older pets still form strong bonds and can't wait to be your new best mate
Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks too!
To find out more about the adoption process see below and to check out our current senior greyhounds awaiting their forever homes visit Our Greyhounds page or give the GAP team a call on 1800 696 377
Greyhound adoption is a five step process:
Fill in the application form which tells us everything we need to know about you and your lifestyle
We match you with a greyhound we believe will suit your lifestyle – we may even suggest a few!
You fall in love with a greyhound and decide to take one home.
You will receive a muzzle, lead, collar, worming treatment and information on your greyhounds’ history and personality
You will receive access to a high level of support from our GAP Team both during and after adoption.
