THE GAP PRO­GRAMME:

Kapi-Mana News - - FEATURE -

GAP was launched in Welling­ton on March 29, 2006.

Since then 580 dogs have been re­homed.

The first to find a home was Rosie, who lives in the Wairarapa.

Grey­hounds have an an­cient his­tory; they fea­ture on en­grav­ings in­side pyra­mids and are the only dog men­tioned in the Bi­ble.

They have a soft, easy­care coat that doesn’t smell due to the ab­sence of oil.

They can run up to 70km an hour . . . but pre­fer to snooze or hang out with their fam­i­lies.

Grey­hounds love car rides, most ly­ing qui­etly, en­joy­ing the view out the win­dow.

Their ex­pected life­span is be­tween 12 and 15 years.

Thirty five grey­hounds have found per­ma­nent homes with Hutt Val­ley fam­i­lies.
