[WA] National Adoption Day - Greyhound Adoptions $75 (Usually $350) @ Greyhounds as Pets


Win first place in their heart and adopt a greyhound at this year’s GAP National Adoption Day, on Sunday 19 April 2020.

The GAP National Adoption Day sees all states across Australia come together in a nation-wide push to boost awareness of greyhounds as pets.

Greyhounds are affectionate and sweet natured dogs who love human companionship. Despite their big appearance, greyhounds don’t need vast amounts of space, in fact they thrive in urban spaces. They are very adaptable and equally suited to large properties, suburban homes, units and even apartments. They are low maintenance pets who enjoy a 15-20 minute walk each day, and sleep for up to 20 hours per day.

Adoptions through GAP are usually $350, but for National Adoption Day they are discounted to $75!

    They make great pets! Too many people assume a racing dog needs a lot of exercise, but it's actually the exact opposite. Just keep them away from smaller pets, like rabbits though.

    • You mean keep them away from dinner?

    GAP greyhounds have always been $75 in Victoria, sometimes they even waive that fee..

  • Is this WA only or National wide?? Very interested to get one…..

    They're noble animals. Skinny and sleek. And they have a beautiful snout

    Greyhounds are strikingly beautiful dogs. I always ask for a pat if I see one being walked. I haven't been refused and the greyhound will always give me a happy look when it gets a pat.

  • Great initiative - hopefully will save many from being slaughtered
    by the scumbag greyhound racing losers!

      To an extent, this is a PR exercise for them. There will still be many, many dogs that go through the whole process and there will always be "excess stock", i.e. dogs that are too slow/old that will be disposed of one way or the other.

      Buying a dog from them definitely helps that dog but it also helps the industry to continue to exist.

  • Greyhound racing community by and large breed them like crazy and only take the top 5-10% of dogs, and only while they're in race form. The rest are shot and dumped, despite claims by the industry they no longer do that.

    Several organisations in NSW and QLD suggest that later this year they will track down mass graves of thousands of greyhounds :(

    Great initiative to adopt

    Give them a home and they will give you unending love in return

    It's a great concept to breed dogs like rabbits purely for profit, then dump the majority of dogs that aren't useful and hope the empathetic public will pick up the slack before you have to euthanise them.
    What a completely and utterly barbaric practice

  • wish i had a house

    • They do just fine in apartments etc, if that's your situation?

  • I'd call mine Santa's little helper

  • -1

    I'd call you unoriginal

  • Lots people said they are nice pet but how many here that own them? And where do you get them from?

      I adopted an older boy from this group (greyhounds as pets wa). Can confirm that everything said above is true!

      One adopted us from Greyhounds as Pets (NSW at Wyee) and we would highly recommend them to anyone in any living situation, including apartments.

      Ours sleeps 23 hours a day, doesn't bark, doesn't shed, can stay inside for extended periods without needing to pee and poo and will be happy with a 30 minute walk each day even at the grandparents pace. There's a great Greyhound owners community and regular walking groups - they love hanging out with other Greys, but love their humans even more.

      They are the most affectionate breed we have ever had and now will only have greyhounds as pets for the rest of our lives.

    • I adopted a greyhound from Greyhounds as Pets WA almost 2 years ago

  • We have adopted a girl they Only want a warm place to sleep two 20 minutes walk a day a grain free dog biscuit applaws from Coles Woolworths is perfect, cleaning of teeth every night consideration of clothing if you need a jumper they need a coat on the same day, pyjamas in the colder months also and around the house clothes , they are so perfect but they like companionship.

  • Excuse me but I always assumed Greyhounds are vicious dogs since everytime I see one being walked on the street, it always has a muzzle on. The only time I don't see the muzzles on are when they are in the races.

    Clearly from the comments here, they are not so bad after all? I think I need a muzzle more for our devil puppy chihuahua. Sigh…

    • I've found the most aggressive dogs ( towards other dogs ) are usually small breeds.
