Giaan is an Olympic gold medallist and highly popular presenter for Channel Seven. She naturally embodies Lort Smith’s values with her care, compassion and genuine love of animals. A truly perfect Lort Smith Ambassador.
Most recently, Giann threw her support behind our new Capital Campaign, urging the community to join her and donate to Lort Smith’s future vision.
‘The first time I came to Lort Smith for a visit, I met my beautiful three-legged Jack Russell dog, Lester. Lester had been relinquished by his carers after an accident left one of his legs needing to be amputated. The first time he made eye contact with me, I knew we belonged together and I really needed him to fill a space in my heart,’ Giaan says. ‘Lort Smith is a place like no other. I am drawn to the ethics and values of the organisation, advocating that no animal should be denied a second chance at life. All people, no matter their financial circumstances, should have access to affordable veterinary care. Just as Louisa Lort Smith could not bring her vision to life without the generosity of Lady Lyle, Lort Smith cannot advance its future plans without the financial support of people that are also drawn to its future vision.’
