Chairman of Greyhounds Australasia, Jan Wilson said, “We share the sadness of the bushfire survivors and the grief of the many families who lost loved ones, pets and property.”

“Greyhounds Australasia members and the industry have come together to pledge their financial support behind the appeal,” said Craig Taberner, Chief Executive Officer of Greyhounds Australasia.

We would like to thank all Australian and New Zealand Greyhound Authorities, and participants for their contributions to the Appeal.

Greyhounds Australasia encourages the greyhound industry to continue with their generosity during this time of adversity.
