Adoption Agency Partners

Ready to adopt a greyhound?

Once a greyhound has graduated from the Great Mates Rehoming Programme, one of our fabulous adoption partners creates a profile for the greyhound and publishes this on their website. You can view all the hounds up for adoption and/or fill in an adoption form by clicking one of the links below.



Established by Greyhound Racing New Zealand, Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) is a registered charity which has over 2,000 completed adoptions since 2006. All of the GAP team is committed to matching you to the hound that is perfect for your family circumstances. You will also have the support and knowledge of your Aftercare & Behaviour Consultant and their whole team for as long as needed to settle your new family member into your home. So whether it is your first greyhound, or maybe even your second or third, GAP will support you at every stage of your adoption journey.



At Kiwikiwi Hounds, their mission is to help retired racing greyhounds find loving pet homes at the end of their racing career, and to actively promote greyhounds as wonderful family pets. Working alongside other rehoming agencies, they strive to individually match each dog with a suitable family. Kiwikiwi Hounds will provide support and guidance for however long is needed after the initial adoption.



May Hounds Charitable Trust is an independent non-profit trust specialising in transitioning greyhounds from race dog to family pet, primarily through a foster care system. They hope to make a small difference to the many racing greyhounds who retire each year. Experienced greyhound owners themselves, they are very aware of the special qualities of this majestic breed and want to enable other people to enjoy them as pets. May Hounds can provide extra training and behavioural modification to those hounds that need a little more assistance navigating their path to pet life. They provide full backup and support 24/7 for as long as required.
