The GAP programme was established as an independent trust by Greyhound Racing New Zealand to find homes for greyhounds when they had finished racing. The Trust is governed by an independent board of trustees and in 2008 became a registered charity. The Trustees meet every two months to discuss operations and plan future strategy.
And you can find out more about our Trustees below.
Liz has 15 year’s experience as a chartered accountant and seven year’s experience as a pet greyhound owner. She adopted Bull (Bubba Hotep) in 2007 and volunteered soon after as a home checker. Her financial expertise along with her knowledge of the programme from both an owner’s and volunteer’s perspective is of considerable benefit in guiding the Trust forward.
Sean is GRNZ’s representative on our Board. He has an extensive business background and is an independent director on the GRNZ Board.
Alastair brings a great deal of governance and management experience to the GAP Board and he is also currently a long term director at PWC in Auckland. Alastair is a greyhound owner and acquired his first greyhound prior to the establishment of GAP.
