What They're Saying
I got my Dusty from GAP, I never thought I could love a dog so much. He chose me, I took him for a walk and he went straight to my car. He was my answered pray. Amazing people and amazing greyhounds. - Shuman
Such wonderful people running this rescue! We just brought home our third greyhound this past weekend, he is doing so well! We will be back to pick up another in a week and a half! Can't say enough great things! - Amy
I agree. Got my first greyhound, Mystic (AKA Where's Panella) at Greyhounds as Pets. The best gift I gave myself was Mystic. I will be returning in June to get another greyhound. Mystic transitioned into the heavenlies in December. - JM
It's been 3 years since I brought my boy (Kane's Captain) home and I honestly couldn't have asked for a better friend and companion! GAP does a wonderful job of placing the right greyhounds in the right homes! - Mary
We have been adopting now for 19 years. We currently have 3, have lost 3. Dolly is our newest. She's been home for 3 weeks. All our babies have been adopted through REGAP, CT. - Bonnie
Got my boy Nick here, LOVE him so much, Wonderful folks running this - will get my next one from here also. - Pam
We have now adopted two retired racers from GAP. Cathy essentially picked both of our dogs for us based on what we told her our life was like. Both dogs were the opposite of what we thought we wanted and both dogs have been an absolutely perfect match for our family. We so appreciate not only the rescue work this organization does but also their commitment to make sure that dogs are well
Matched with to their new families.

Greyhounds are amazing pets! Thank you GAP for matching us with our babies. - Katie
We had an excellent adoption experience with these folks. The two and a half hour drive (one way) was well worth it. It is a well run operation. Greyhounds are wonderful animals, of course, and our boy from Greyhounds as Pets of Northeast Florida is no exception. If we ever decide to add another Greyhound to our household, there is no question but that the dog will come from this adoption group. - Charlie
I have adopted two great dogs from here. We adopted Eileen's Clown (Ellie) about 10 years ago. After she passed away, we adopted All In (Indy). He has since gone to be with Ellie. The staff at GAP showed us dogs that would be a good match for our family (cats and kids)If I ever get another dog, it'll have to be another greyhound . They are the best dogs: sweet, loving and gentle. - Carol
I love this place!! I've had my 4 yr old Hokey Pokey for almost 6 wks now and love him to death, he's such a good boy! I loved the way when trying to find a new friend I went to the kennel and was allowed to take the dogs I was interested in on a walk to see how they reacted to me. After picking HP they let me come and see him anytime they were open to spend time with him while I waited for him to get fixed. I walked him got to take him to the turn out pins to play with him we got to get used to one another and bond before he came to his new forever home. Anytime I have a question or concern I can call or go by and they help the best they can. I even became a volunteer to work the booth at the op kennel club as well as met and became friends with some great people with retired greyhounds as well. This place does great work striving to give these fur babies a second chance at life after they have completed their work on the track! - Sarah
Everyone has been super nice, helpful & accommodating!! We LOVE our George - Christa

The ladies were very helpful in helping us find the perfect dog for our family. My little girl is afraid of most dogs but not the one they introduced us to. I'm glad I found this shelter. - Christy

Our newly adopted baby (3 weeks last Monday) has been a huge help to my 3-year-old who goes to Lucky when she is angry or frustrated and calms down immediately. I am trying desperately to find a stuffed greyhound or a plastic greyhound that she can take with her to help her soothe herself when we are away from home. Anybody have any ideas? I have done a bunch of internet searches, but haven't found anything. - Becky

We had a great adoption process. Our greyhound is adapting well and the entire family loves our newest family member. - Freddie
