Foster Application Form

Thank you for expressing your interest to care for and adopt a Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) dog!

Dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Program SA have been small dog assessed before entering your home, while in your home they will be temperament tested, vet checked, de-sexed, vaccinated, wormed, and introduced to pet dog life through a minimum of 6-8 weeks of foster care.

Below is a short questionnaire for you to fill out and send to the Coordinator at the details found above.  This application will enable us to begin the process for fostering a GAPSA Dog.

Once we have received your form, we will contact you to confirm that we have received your application and give you an estimate on when we might have a suitable dog available for you to foster.
