Tax Time Donations, or How to Be A Superhero!

Tax Time

Hiya people, it’s Deedee here (actually, that’s SuperDee to you). I’ve just realised we are into June and that means it’s tax time coming! I’ve been sitting here using my superpowers to try and balance the books and GR could sure do with some donations. So many vet bills, kennel bills, treatments to buy… it never stops! As it’s the end of the financial year very soon could you please think of us houndies waiting for homes when you are getting ready for tax time? GR receives no funding and relies on donations from kind people like yourselves to keep saving us. Every donation over $2 is tax deductible, so you can help balance your books to help ours…plus, you’ll get  a nice Superhero feeling that you’ve helped save a hound. Win-win all round I say!

To make a donation you can do so via direct bank deposit or paypal (although please keep in mind paypal charges fees so we don’t get all of your generosity…boo). If you do direct bank deposit send an email through to Papa Peter and Mama Janet peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au to let them know about your donation.

Thankyou! Love, Deedee xo

Fred

Fred is one of our older hounds seeking a home. He is currently in foster with Agnes.

“Fred was so wonderful. In terms of temperament, he is a very self contained boy, extremely happy with his own company and very rarely needy of pats and attention and never hassles for food or jumps onto places he shouldn’t. That said, he does love and good cuddle and will definitey return the love of someone that pats him regularly.
I found him great to walk on the leash, he never pulled and would modify his walking pace to trot lightly beside you however fast you were walking.   Fred is absolutely fine with strange dogs, even with gregarious dogs that were off the leash in the park, as long as I kept him close and he knew he was safe.  He even made a couple of friends at the puppy park!
Freddy is an old boy, so would suit someone quite relaxed in a quiet-ish environment .  Fred would best suit someone that is quite calm and relaxed themselves, as he is a very sensitive boy.  He also has the smoothest softest ears out, and the softest little tummy that loves a gentle pat.”

City 2 Surf 2016

DSC06804

Put on your running shoes and come join us for this year’s City 2
Surf on August 14th! We have a team participating this year to raise much needed funds for Greyhound Rescue and we would love you to join us. You don’t have to run, walkers are also welcome (including mums and dads with prams) just choose the starting group that best fits your physical fitness.

More of a couch potato like our houndies? That’s ok, we would love some sponsors for our team members, or even some cheerleaders along the way. Spread the word for us at your workplace, and among family and friends, every little bit counts.

If you would like to join us you need to register by following this link at the City 2 Surf Website. You can join our team the Greyhound Rescue Racers which is already set up. You will then need to start your individual fundraising page here at Everyday Hero and join our fundraising team there too. Don’t forget to share your fundraising page and update your followers on how you are doing!

We will be meeting after the run for some refreshments, and maybe there might be a hound or two at the end to give us all a hug for our efforts! Any questions please contact Kate kate@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Winter Magic Festival 2016

Greyhound Rescue is participating in this year’s largest event in the Blue Mountains, the Winter Magic Festival! Our Mountain Hounds volunteers will have some greyhound related goodies to sell, volunteers to chat to, and a hound or two to hug! Wrap up warm and come say hello . This is a free event, but parking is extremely limited, so we suggest using public transport. Hopping off at Katoomba Station will get you a few footsteps away from the main event. There are stalls the whole length of the main street, food, entertainment, and more. Doggies are welcome as this is an outdoor venue – however it does get very crowded and noisy. The Grand Parade does feature drummers, musicians, and similar, so please use your best judgement as to whether your doggie would be comfortable in this environment. See you there!

Adele is a curvy little cutie looking for her forever home…it’s probably best if she sings her story to you…

“Hello? Can you hear me?

I’m in kennels dreaming about a couch and family.

I’m so young – and now I’m free

I’m forgetting how it felt before Greyhound Rescue saved me.

Hello from the kennel side.

I must have rooed a thousand times

To tell you I’m looking for a home of my own

I get on with kids, but not cats or small dogs,

Hello from the outside,

Do you think you could give me a try?

I must tell you I’m sorry, I’ll steal many hearts,

But we shouldn’t wait, we shouldn’t be apart anymore.”

Bevan

Hi I’m Bevan and I’m playful happy boy. Don’t confuse me with that other kind of ‘bevan’ no, no, no. You won’t find me drinking a tinnie in a singlet, I’m supermodel material don’t you know! I am looking for a home without small fluffies, and would probably be best with children over 5. I love playing with my toys, and spending my days conserving my energy snoozing between zoomies in the big runs. If you are interested in me contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

What’s eating Gilbert Greyhound? He wants a home!

“My name’s Gilbert, and I’m a happy boy looking for my forever lounge. I am other dog friendly (big or small), great with kiddies, and I have also tested cat tolerant! If you give me a neck scratch I’m putty in your hands, and if you give me a teddy bear I’ll be your forever friend. I’m great on the lead, and a calm and relaxed dog that would suit various family situations. I’m sure I won’t have to wait too long!”

Smokey (Cat Tolerant)

Smokey is kindly sponsored by Jenny & Jennifer.

 

I’m Smokey and I am one of the most loving gentle boys you will ever meet. I get on great with other dogs big or small, cats, and children. I’m a great snuggler and will happily lay on the lounge with you all night if I could. I am currently in foster with five other dogs and four cats, and there are chickens in their own run but foster mummy says I am not allowed in there! I don’t bark at them though, and I’m so well behaved you would hardly know I’m there. I travel well in the car, I’m good on a lead, and I just give a little ‘wuff’ to let you know if I need to go out to do a wee. I would suit a wide range of families as I am easily adaptable and well socialised. If you are interested in me contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Robyn

Robyn is kindly sponsored by Michele, Nina & Luke.

 

I’m Robyn the red rocket, and I LOVE to have fun! I have plenty of joie de vivre, I’m just looking for my special someone to share it with! I love kiddies but because of my exuberant nature it is probably best for me to be in a home with older children. I love playing with my toys, zoomies, and of course getting belly rubs from the volunteers. They say redheads have more fun, why don’t you take me home and find out?

Jaxs

Jaxs is kindly sponsored by Lisa.

 

Hi I’m Jaxs and at under two years old I am still quite a playful pup. I love a good snuggle and being brushed, playing with my toys, and I don’t want to miss out on what’s going on around me. I would suit a home with kiddies over 5 – due to my playful nature I wouldn’t want to bowl anyone over!  I am not suited to a home with small fluffies either canine or feline but I have a lot of love to give and I’m just busting to get out of here!
