As of May 2014, over 4,000 retired greyhounds have been placed into forever homes across NS, NB, PEI, and NFLD through GPAC.
Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada (GPAC) a 100% volunteer driven, Canadian registered non-profit society, is located in Musquodoboit Harbour, Nova Scotia.
Today GPAC arranges for the dogs to be transported safely in special greyhound transporters by professional dog haulers. The dogs arrive stress free in loads of 30 every 30 to 45 days.
Our organization is proud to be Pro-Racing, Pro-Trainer, Pro-Track, Pro-Greyhound, Pro-Adoption. We pride ourselves on working closely with tracks to promote racing. We encourage our adopters to communicate with the handlers and trainers of their dogs and we strive to educate potential adopters, as well as the general public, on the Greyhound’s journey from track life to home life.
