GAP is excited to introduce our latest member of the team. Nicky is our new National Events Coordinator who will continue the great work of Denis. She will coordinate GAP's event calendar nationally as well as guide and support our amazing team of volunteers nationwide who organise GAP walks and attend all sorts of events like A&P shows, pet expos and fundraisers throughout the year.
Have a greyhound-sized space in your home? But not in the position right now to adopt one (or another one ;)) permanently? Then here is your opportunity to become a GAP Foster Carer. We are looking for more Foster Carers all over New Zealand.
Hello friends. Greyhounds as Pets (GAP) would like to bring you up to date on some significant changes to our organisation. We have been working hard behind the scenes for a while and are now excited to turn the page to a new chapter in our story with an innovative operational partnership with Greyhound Racing New Zealand (GRNZ).
2019 GAP Calendar - Calling for Photo Submissions!
Hi all, it is that time of the year again and we are taking submissions for the 2020 GAP Calendar.
All photos need to be at least 300dpi (at least 1Mb or larger) to be the best quality for printing - we are again taking both portrait and landscape pics this year! They will be printed up to about A5 size.
Please only send in calendar quality pictures - the hounds need to be in focus - not the background.
GAP is excited to introduce our two new team members. Abbie and Rachel will be joining as Rehoming Team Leads in the Upper North Island and South Island. They both come with a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are looking forward to having them on board.
Abbie Douglas is our new Rehoming & Operations Team Lead – Upper North Island. You can contact her by email email@example.com.
Some exciting changes at GAP have created new opportunities to join our team in Auckland and Christchurch. We are looking for a Rehoming Team Lead – South Island and a Rehoming and Operations Team Lead – Upper North Island. If you think you have the skills and passion to join our team, we want to hear from you:
It is really good to be back again. The death of my dear Lilo was true loss of a family member, a friend, an exceptional, graceful and beautiful hound. It took quite some getting over, that’s for sure.
Appointment of our new Events & Volunteer Coordinator
Here's a bit more news from the team. At GAP we could not operate without the amazing strength of our many volunteers around the country, so we decided to give them some guidance. We welcome Denis Putt as our new Events & Volunteer Coordinator. Our area coordinators who are responsible for holding events around the country will report to Denis.
Denis has been with GAP for many years, most recently as Area Coordinator for Taranaki. He is based in New Plymouth and... well, I just let him speak for himself:
