About Us

Our Greyt Stuff store provides for all your greyhound needs. 100% of the profits go to helping Greyhounds as Pets find homes for retired greyhounds.

Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) is a registered charity established by Greyhound Racing New Zealand to find pet homes for retired racing greyhounds. Greyhounds are affectionate, gentle and intelligent dogs. Each year many retire from racing and hope to start a new life as a pet. Greyhounds usually make this transition with ease and become devoted companions. As our owners agree - a greyhound makes a very special addition to the family.

There are greyhounds coming out of racing throughout the year and all over New Zealand. The GAP adoption programme steers them through their career change and helps them find a new home as a pet. Our greyhounds are carefully assessed and then matched with their new owners – we act a bit like a dating agency. Our greyhounds visit the vet for a health check, desexing and microchipping, and we ensure that vaccinations and council registrations are up to date. We also provide ongoing advice and support to new owners. For more information about the greyhounds that are available for adoption visit us here.
