2019 GAP Calendar - Calling for Photo Submissions!

Hi all, it is that time of the year again and we are taking submissions for the 2019 GAP Calendar.

All photos need to be at least 300dpi 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.

Greyt Fashions, a fundraiser in Christchurch on Sunday 8 July 2018, earned $4994 for GAP and helped to spread the word about greyhound adoption.

Raced into Our Hearts Forever


We are so very saddened to tell of Lilo’s passing, peacefully, gently and softly as she lived her life.

Lilo – the hound who

Never asked to go for a walk, but catapulted to the door when car keys rattled.

Never asked for food but licked up every carpet crumb

Never nudged a half opened door – never sure she should

Never minded you leaving

Never noticed when you came back

Never refused what was asked of her

Never let discomfort show

Lilo has not done much during this hot and humid summer - except loaf about on her sofa, re-reading her favourite book, Comet’s Tale, thus keeping up the fine reputation that greyhounds have on Sofa Management.

Everything had a long rest from ear tips to toenails. She did attempt to fill in her days by writing an account of her summer holiday, but the brief rough note I saw in her bed, just said “I done nothing” which didn’t really make for riveting reading.


Lilo - Angels Come in Black 

The Fountain of Youth


This the thing is – has Lilo discovered it? Is it something magical that she dug up in one of her multiple bunkers?

Three awesome girls, students at Bombay School south of Auckland held a bake sale to raise funds for Greyhounds as Pets.

They raised a staggering $672.40.    What a huge effort, we at GAP salute you, your supportive school and generous families. 

Sophie, Kyla and Danica are pictured here presenting a cheque to John Telfer from GAP.
