Calling for fosters and funds!

Greyhound lovers, we beg for your help. Due to the recent airing of Four Corners we are under the most pressure we have ever been under, to take surrendered greyhounds. Our inbox has been flooded and phones have not stopped ringing.

WE WANT TO SAVE THEM! We are desperately begging for foster carers and donations to help us build more kennels on our new property to enable us to take more surrendered greyhounds and to be able to pay private boarding kennels to reduce the amount that trainers or owners may feel they have to euthanise.

Any donation small or large would be greatly appreciated or if you can foster in NSW please email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

AccountName: Greyhound Rescue Inc
BSB: 012289

Please send an accompanying email to peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au with your details to let Janet and Peter know you have donated.

Please share, this is a matter of urgency!

Share the greyhound love!

In the light of the recent horrific documentary that aired Monday night on Four Corners regarding the live baiting cruelty, we would like everyone to share this beautiful photo shared by greyhound lover Tasha. Thanks Tasha!

From birth, greyhounds are born to make money. They are trained (and not in the basic obedience sense), kennelled, blooded (as we found last night) and then either abandoned, surrendered or euthanised.

There are many of us who deal with the aftermath of their ‘career’ and we can tell you firsthand – greyhounds are special. What other breed can be put through such a lifestyle and snuggle up to humans, kiss children’s faces, walk nicely on the lead, rarely bark or show aggression, become therapy dogs or even service dogs and on many occasions – live in harmony with small pets?

We won’t stop promoting this wonderful breed and we hope we have your support. Thanks for being there with us!

Phoebe (cat friendly)

Phoebe is a small black girl with a winning smile and touch of cheekiness in her personality. She is playful and curious, and a bit of a clown, it doesn’t take long for her to win your heart. Phoebe is tolerant of confident indoor cats but at this stage is best not left outside with small fluffies – she loves to find out what everyone is doing and where they are going, she wants to be a lady about town! She gets on well with other dogs and will respond well to training as she is quite fond of the tuckerbag!

If you would like more information on Phoebe or any of our other hounds patiently waiting please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Phoebe is:

  • DOB TBC
  • Microchipped, vaccinated, desexed, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • indoor cat friendly

Quinn (Cat Friendly)

 

Quinn is a small black boy with the most expressive cute ears. He needs a bit of TLC to get out his “kennel coat”  and yummy sardines to give it some shine. He is quite shy and will need a family that understands he will need time to come out of his shell, but with a bit of patience you will be rewarded with the love of a most beautiful soul. He is the sort of dog you just want to hold forever and spoil to bits, whoever adopts him will be one lucky family!  He gets on well with other dogs of various sizes (but he does fancy himself a bit of a ladies man) and is also quite happy to live with a cat. He is a bit shy around noisy small humans but if he is given space and privacy he would live happily with understanding children.

If you are interested in Quinn or any of our other hounds to foster or adopt please contact us for more information info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Katharine

Katharine is currently in foster with Corinne and doggy foster brother Bond.

Katharine has been living in a home and is well acquainted with being a pet. She could not stay where she is as she is unfortunately not cat friendly. She is people and dog friendly though, and is great with kids!  She is a low maintenance very sweet natured girl, who adores cuddles and is lovely to walk.  She is playful and loves squeaky toys and playing fetch.  Her favourite place to sleep is on the lounge on your lap and is often found belly up and very comfy.  We have it on good authority she fancies herself as a taste tester as she is an excellent counter surfer! This won’t be a problem if no food is left out for inquisitive snouts.   She is a happy girl who needs a loving home.

Her foster family writes “What a friendly, cuddly and playful girl.  She is very eager to say hello to all the neighbourhood dogs and children and gets very excited to go for her morning and afternoon walks.  She loves to play fetch, and gets really excited about outrunning Bond, even if he’s almost a third bigger than her.  When on a walk, her favourite thing to do is look as far as she can and see if she can spot a bunny. When satisfied that all the bunnies are gone, she’s happy to turn around and head back home for breakfast or dinner.  If you don’t mind a couch surfing dog, she’ll warm up a spot but is also very respectful and will learn quickly where she should not lie down.  She’s an early riser and up with daylight so best you be the kind of person who likes a morning walk.”

If you think you might have the perfect home and lap for Katharine please contact us! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Baxter

Baxter is a slightly unusual looking greyhound but he isn’t a cross! This boy has come to us from the pound where he was quite stressed and lost weight, but now he is with us we hope he will soon fill out. This handsome man is quite playful and outgoing, and would suit various home situations, although so far he has not proved small dog or cat friendly. He has been a pet and would no doubt fit into another home quite easily, where he would flourish once more!

Baxter is:

  • DOB TBC
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Not cat friendly

For more information about fostering or adopting Baxter or any of our other hounds, please get in touch with us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au and let us help you find our perfect match!

Mary

There’s something about…Mary! This lovely lady is a quiet soul who through no fault of her own has found herself in our busy overflow kennels and is unsure of what is happening to her. She seems to be quite gentle and we can’t wait to see her come out of her shell. We would love some of our longer residents at our main kennels to get busted out so we can move Mary and many others over to our main kennels so the volunteers can get to know them better. If you are interested in fostering or adopting please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au so we can help find your perfect match!

Mary is:

  • approx 5 years old DOB TBC
  • desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Not yet cat tested
  • Adoption cost $350

JC

JC arrived to us on Friday 13th but just because he’s black doesn’t mean he’s unlucky ! We are certain JC stands for “just cute” because he’s so adorable. We have lots of black greyhounds at the moment patiently waiting for their forever homes and hoping they are not overlooked. JC here is currently at our overflow kennels and just can’t wait to join us at our new property so we can get to know this friendly boy better. If you are interested in fostering or adopting to help us get our hounds on a couch please contatct us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au and let us find you your perfect match!

Jill

Jill is being sponsored by Alan. Thank you.

Jill has gone into foster care in the Blue Mountains with Jo!

Jill arrived with her brother Jack and is about 3 years old. Jill might be little in stature but she is big on bounce! She has lots of energy and is very playful and funny- she obviously missed the memo about greyhounds being lazy… Maybe it has something to do with her nursery rhyme namesake, or maybe its just Jill, but she loves buckets of water!  In the warm months she not only splashes about in the paddle pools but tries to do the same in her water bucket, so Jill is the only one who has two in her kennel – one for sploshing her dainty paws in and the other for drinking! She loves people to bits but is a bit wary about other dogs. It would be best if she was the only dog, and definitely not withcats. If you think you might have enough water and buckets to keep Jill happy, and a nice comfy couch to stretch out on please contact us!

Jill is:

  • 3 years old (DOB 6.1.11)
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heart worm tested and treated
  • Not cat friendly
  • Located in Sydney
  • adoption costs $350
