GAP North Queensland

The North Queensland Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) is based in Townsville and covers a large area in North Queensland from Mackay to Cairns and beyond.

The GAP team is happy to work with you to facilitate logistics given the large geographic area covered by the program.

The Townsville GAP facility is located at the Black River Boarding kennels, 25 minutes north of Townsville, which allows for easy access for adoptions and for the industry to retire their greyhounds to GAP on intake days.

The GAP team is at the Black River kennels each day transitioning greyhounds to pet life.

Facilities at Townsville GAP include fully fenced long exercise yards, large assessment yard, an undercover area for hydro bathing and a relaxing garden for adoptive families to meet the GAP greyhounds.

Visits to the GAP facility can be arranged by appointment.
