Greyhounds As Pets is the industry run program responsible for assessing, fostering and re-homing greyhounds retired from the racing industry at all stages of a greyhounds lifecycle. From puppies all the way to those retiring as athletes! We are also involved in the education of the general public on the benefits of having a greyhound as a pet.
Greyhounds As Pets is committed to continually improving the program for participants. As such, we have been successful in making Pre-Assessment Sessions more readily available (meaning you don’t need to wait as long to have your dog assessed).
There are limited appointments available at pre-assessment sessions and owners and trainers who miss out on a spot will be put on a waiting list and contacted should there be any cancellations for that session. If not, they will be booked in for the next available pre-assessment session.
Trainers and owners are reminded that as a condition of the GWIC Rehoming Policy, you are required to make genuine attempts to rehome your greyhound by first preparing your greyhound for rehoming. For a guide on how to help your dog transition to pet life, please access the GAP pet prep guide by following this link.
Contact us via phone (02 4357 2817) or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance completing the form and to book in for a pre-assessment.
Step 2: Return the necessary paperwork below via email or fax or post a hard copy
The greyhounds current C5 vaccination certificate and also documentation that the greyhound has had at least the first injection for C7 vaccination (i.e. C2i = Canine coronavirus/ leptospirosis) not less than 7 days and not more than 28 days prior to assessment. If assessment and entry into GAP occurs within 2-4 weeks of this initial C2i injection GAP will complete the C7 vaccination course. If this period will be greater than 4 weeks you must complete the C7 vaccination course by getting a second C2i injection prior to coming into GAP.
Desexing certificate if your greyhound is already desexed.
Step 3: Once all the paperwork has been received, we will contact you to confirm your appointment. Please note there are a maximum of two (2) greyhounds per owner, per session without prior approval.
