Adopting/Applying to Adopt or Foster

Collecting relevant personal information from those people who apply to adopt/actually adopt one of the dogs that belong to Greyhound Gap is essential for the adoption process and post adoption support.

We keep this information indefinitely, as stated, in our data protection statement on both the pre adoption form and the adoption agreement, this is to safeguard the future of the dogs.

We may, very occasionally, be asked for information about your home visit by another rescue. We will not disclose your home visit report without your consent.
