GAP hits the Last Frontier

GAP has many wonderful supporters in Victoria and further afield.

Sean and Julie Novak, who live in Alaska, probably win the prize as the most distant admirers of GAP.

They regularly tune into GAP’s Facebook page, checking out the posts and videos. Admittedly social media makes it easy for people all over the world to connect, but as far as we can tell this Alaskan community is the most far-flung outpost of GAP supporters.

Glady and Jack Christenson in Hawaii are also friends of GAP, and over the years have adopted three greyhounds from us. Most recently, they adopted Silver and flew her to the Big Island where they live among rainforests, beaches, waterfalls and volcanoes.

“We love your posts and out of all of the greyhound groups we’ve found you guys seem to have the most fun and are actually interesting,” Sean said.

Sean says he would love to adopt a greyhound from GAP, but the long-haul flight and long drive back home would be too difficult. They live in a rural area, near a city called Fairbanks.

They discovered GAP Victoria when they were researching greyhound re-homing a few years ago.

“We love your posts and out of all of the greyhound groups we’ve found you guys seem to have the most fun and are actually interesting,” Sean said.

Sean and Julie have three dogs – Annabelle is a 17-year-old greyhound/Husky mix, Jameson is a seven-year-old greyhound, and Polly is a nine-month-old Labrador mixed breed.

GAP sent the pair caps with the distinctive green logo, which they still wear, so there is a little bit of GAP in the middle of Alaska.
