Attention - Covid-19 Restrictions

GPAC is continuing to accept applications for galgo and podenco adoption but due to current travel restrictions related to Covid-19 and the potential for an increase in cases through the fall of 2020, home visits will be scheduled closer to when the dogs are booked to arrive in Canada. Right now, GPAC anticipates that this will likely be in early 2021 but the travel situation is difficult to predict. Please bear with us while we balance getting these deserving dogs into forever homes with following government protocols and keeping our volunteers safe.

Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada

Over 5,000 retired greyhounds have been placed into forever homes across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland, through Greyhound Pets of Altantic Canada. GPAC has also partnered with several groups that rescue galgos and podencos in Spain so that they too might find the homes they deserve in Atlantic Canada. With the help of teams of dedicated volunteers, a growing number of galgos and podencos make the long trip from Spain to join the GPAC family.

We never think of our dogs as leaving us. Instead, we see them as helping us to expand the GPAC family. We welcome each and every adopter and remain in touch with them, celebrating their successes, birthdays and other life events through our membership group and our monthly mailer. Many of our adopters have made lifelong friends through their love of greyhounds, galgos, and podencos and we welcome you as a new adopter to join our Facebook group.

Release The Hounds!

You don’t have to own a greyhound and no experience is necessary. An experienced GPAC volunteer will provide you with any required training in any area you are interested in helping out.
