It’s Ipswich Showtime for QRIC GAP

Share this:

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) is making its first visit to exhibit at the Ipswich Show this weekend.

The GAP team will be on site to discuss adoption and fostering retired racers with show visitors and there will be chance to meet a greyhound at the stand.

Fully funded by the Queensland Government, the GAP is part of the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission and is dedicated to finding suitable homes for retired greyhounds. The GAP team works with the racing industry to guide them in preparing their racing greyhounds for retirement.

Every greyhound in the program is health checked and behaviourally assessed, de-sexed, wormed and vaccinated. The program aims to help transition greyhounds from racing to pet life.

At the GAP we pride ourselves on our ability to match our GAP greyhounds to your loving family through our comprehensive assessment process. How? By taking the time to get to know each greyhound individually and through comprehensive and ongoing behavioural assessments.

At the GAP we strive to:

  • Carefully prepare and assess each greyhound’s suitability as a family pet.
  • Find suitable, loving, long term homes for retired greyhounds.
  • Educate the public about greyhounds.
  • Encourage a positive image of the greyhound.
  • Stimulate the public’s desire to own a greyhound as a family pet.
  • Give ongoing support to adopting families.
