Pet of the week – Chip

Hi I’m Chip and I have plenty of personality! I love to wiggle myself under your legs, come and and do it all over again, and give you a cheeky derp or smile. Life will definitely not be very boring without me!I am definitely a people person, and to poke my long nose into everything (including your butt!) Basically I’m a stickbeak baby exploring the world. I would be bet with a yard so no apartment in the inner west for me! I would do best with another dog to show me the ropes of pet life and some people around without long hours (well why would you want to be at work all day if you had me!)

How you doin’? I’m Marlo and if tall, dark and handsome is your type – I’m the hound for you!  I’m a fun outgoing, fun loving kind of guy with a bounce in my step.  I love my toys and will play games with you over and over if you let me. I love to lean right in for a cuddle and if you scratch me in just the right place – my teeth will chatter together with happiness!

I’m new to this pet business so I’m looking for someone to help show me the ropes – the word here at the kennels is I might even get a nice comfy couch to share with my new family! I can be a little bit excited around other dogs so it might be best if I’m the only fur kid so I can be the centre of attention. Children could be OK if they’re a bit older – sometimes I can be a bit of a klutz!

Hi there! I’m Gaius! They tell me I’ve been named after one Gaius Julius Caesar because of my very distinguished ‘roman nose’.

Currently, I’m on the lookout for an empire to call my own. You don’t need to have a palace – maybe just a few couches for me to regally recline on. Honestly – I’m not very much like my namesake,  I’m just a big sook that loves soaking up attention and being close to people.

I’m good with other dogs as long as they don’t try to be too bossy. Kids shouldn’t be a problem either as long as they understand that sometimes if I’m busy doing my thing, I like to have my own space.

Hi there, I’m Bronson! Don’t let me tough-guy name fool you – it just helps with my street cred. I’m really just one big softie.

I absolutely love spending time with people and really enjoy a good cuddle and a scratch. Oh, and toys, I just love toys – even better if they squeak! I’m happy to entertain myself but it’s always better to have a human to enjoy a game of fetch and have a chase with.

I’m good with other dogs too so if you have any potential furry siblings for me that would be super! Kids could be OK, but only if they’re a little bit older so they can join in the games!

Thank You Pymble Ladies College

Greyhound Rescue is very grateful to the year 10 girls from Pymble Ladies College, their teachers and parents for spending time at our shelter as part of their service learning week and helping us with all manner of tasks.

Here is some of what they achieved.

  • Cleaned and tidied our two dog trailers to get them ready for their next home via
  • Washed every dog using our hydrobath. A big thank you to Jim’s Dog Wash franchisee Theresa McKenzie for also volunteering her services and making the dogs even shinier.
  • Filled holes, cut thistles, walked dogs, cuddled dogs. Played ball with them and gave them their first real run in the sunshine since they were rescued.
  • Cleaned the blanket room and tidied the office helped by Karen Gaddis.
  • Washed the greyhound rescue van and cleaned it inside.
  • Created an inventory of all the poles and wires from our dismantled dog runs ready for our relocation once we find somewhere to go.
Thank you ladies, and we hope to see you again soon!

Volunteer of the Month – August 2017

We’d like to introduce you to Verity, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for The month of August.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and co-operation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Verity to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Hi, I’m Emmett, a little goofy lookin’ but I promise you I will be your super dooper best friend. Plus, since I’m named after Dr Emmett Brown I’m definitely interested in the future – my future! You won’t need a DeLorean or a flux capacitator to get me to my future. What you will need is a big heart and a loving home to get me to my perfect place. Being a bit of a maverick I prefer to fly solo, so would love a place all to my own. Read More »
