GAP has kennel bases in the Waikato, Manawatu and Canterbury Districts where all our greyhounds are assessed and prepared for their new lives. We also have a great team of foster carers who help the dogs adjust to the home environment and also groups of supporters all over NZ who get together for walks and events.
We now have over 1,000 greyhounds in homes from Invercargill to Kerikeri!
sorry my new job doesn't do payroll giving, you guys do a great job for the houndies :) Guest Giver on 06 Dec 2013 at 18:30
Bruce and Nancy Lennox (from Canada) would like to make this donation as Christmas gift for Tricia and Vince. The donation receipt can be sent to them with hopefully a card/note indicating this gift made on their behalf. Bruce Tricia & Vince Indo on 23 Nov 2013 at 05:26

Dad loved greyhound racing, so I'm pleased to be giving something back to the industry in their retirement. Well done ! Gordon Cameron on 26 Jan 2013 at 09:30

Over $10,000 raised on the Greyhounds As Pets Street Appeal! Thank you to everyone who donated to our appeal. Around 40 owners and their hounds took part on the day, rattling buckets on the streets in Wellington and around the country. Not only did we reach our fundraising target, the extra publicity also resulted in an influx of adoption applications! Our team are now busy visiting prospective owners and matching them with their perfect greyhound :-) Thanks again for your support!
The Greyhounds As Pets Appeal day is 1 March 2013. We desperately need funds for kennelling and veterinary bills. Please give the hounds a little something on this special day!
Nearly 900 greyhounds successfully placed in homes around New Zealand. We can't wait to make the big 1,000. Thank you to everyone who is helping us on our way!
Over 400 greyhounds have now been successfully adopted to homes throughout New Zealand! Thank you to everyone who has helped with looking after them.
After successful summer GAP now has over 350 greyhounds in pet homes. This summer also saw the opening of our new South Island kennel base in Amberley (45 mins north of Christchurch) and the purchase of a new vehicle dedicated to transporting our greyhounds. We were able to purchase our Geyhound Bus after Auckland supporters raised $12,000 through a fundraising tennis tournament. What a great year!
