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:
Here's some more news on what is going on in our team:
At GAP we have lots of staff, contractors, volunteers and of course hounds involved in showing you what amazing pets our greyhounds make. To take our marketing efforts to the next level, we now have Daniel Bohan on board as Marketing and Communications Coordinator. Daniel is not new to GAP, he has been the Wellington & Central West Regional Coordinator for nearly three years.
Finally, the new GAP Calendar 2019 is now available in the GAP Shop for pre-order. You can order now and it will be shipped hot off the press later in October. Again, limited edition, just $20 each, and we sold all out last year, so get in quick.
Exciting news for GAP! We’re excited to announce our new relationship with Accell/Equissage who kindly donated two full Accell therapy centres, which contain a hand unit and a large therapy mat, to our kennel bases. Our retired greyhounds will receive this treatment while in our care and new adopters are given an information pack including a DVD and a voucher for a free treatment and money off the purchase price if interested.
