“Hi I’m Peggy- Sue! I’m here to tell you my story about my dramatic arrival to GR!

I arrived with my friends Elly-May and JK in the early hours of a Friday morning but we weren’t feeling too good. Lucky for us our transporter got us here super quick but all of us were dehydrated and in such poor condition we needed to go straight to the dogtors! Imagine that, it was like an episode of ER! OK, well maybe not quite the same as that George Clooney wasn’t on call but we did have some very nice Dogtors and Dognurses. Covered in fleas and full of worms, and all of us needing to put on weight we were a sorry sight and in need of urgent TLC.

We had to stay in the houndie hospital for a few days to have fluid therapy and start medication  -but we all made it through! We are feeling  much better now and we have all put on weight especially me I was very skinny and SO HUNGRY! My poor little bones were poking out and I wasn’t as good looking as I am now. The thing is, although we were saved and GR are generously supported by the dogtors at Vineyard Vets Greyhound Rescue still has a very big bill to cover!  Our emergency care as well as a lot of new arrivals that needed vetwork last mont cost over $4700!!! That is an awful lot to save us houndies and get us ready for our forever homes. Do you think you guys could help us out, just a little bit? You can?! We love you already!”

Thank you everyone for your continued support and generosity. If you are able to help us again and spare a few dollars to help us out with our vet bill for our saved hounds we would appreciate it. If you can’t help us out on this occasion please share our post – every dollar counts!

The Ban Goes Through! A Message From Our Founders

Mikey 2
Peter and Janet would like to thank everyone for their continued support since the racing ban was announced on July 7th.  Thank you to all of you who have called and written to your own as well as many other State MP’s to support Premier Mike Baird’s brave decision and put an end to Greyhound Racing in NSW from July 1st 2017. We are amazed by the historic and momentous moment that took place in State Parliament in the early hours of 24th August 2016 and acknowledge and thank everyone’s commitment and contributions large or small wherever you are to get our beloved greyhounds to this day.
The work isn’t over yet. Once again we would like to assure everyone that our top priority is the hounds welfare and we will continue to work hard to find homes for the greyhounds that will no longer be wanted. We are already in contact with the task force that has been put in place to begin the enormous job that lies ahead to save and rehome the greyhounds and in the coming weeks and months there are many groups and people who are going to be very busy!
We would also like to remind everyone that although greyhound racing in NSW will end next year, our friends in other states are still working and speaking up to make it an end Australia wide. Keep writing, calling, and being the voice for greyhounds everywhere.
What can you do to help us now?
Adopt, foster, sponsor, or volunteer. Spread the word for us. Tell people about the work we do! We always are in need of donations whether it is funds to pay our many bills or items for our kennels. The hounds appreciate every little bit that comes our way.
Thank you to every single one of our volunteers past and present who have put in an incredible amount of work, and your commitment and dedication to the greyhounds in our care. Whether hands on at kennels, or the hive of activity behind the scenes, the enormous amount of time sacrificed has not gone unnoticed.  We also give a massive thank you to all of our sponsors and donors without whom we could not have done or continue to do the work we do. Let’s celebrate this amazing news!

Eleanor

I’m Eleanor and I’m an elegant lady of 6 that is ready to settle down. Past my puppy years and plenty of love and life left to give I would love a family who would let me live quietly having plenty of long naps, short walks, tasty treats, and a comfy lap to snuggle into. But don’t let my poise and elegance fool you, I am most definitely the boss lady! Consider me like the Dowager Countess in Downton Abbey – nothing gets past me and I always get my way! If you would like more information about me or any of my friends please contact ifo@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Cosmo

I’m Cosmo and that’s short for cosmopolitan! Yep, I’m an all round nice guy looking for my forever home and I’m hoping it could be you! I’m black (black is very cosmopolitan it goes with everything), ever so handsome and I like to move in social circles (except cats, cats are not the in thing).  If I was a human I’d be on the cover of GQ but alas there is no such publication for houndies so you will just have to adopt me and admire me in the flesh instead. I get on with most other dogs, I love kids and people in general, and I’m a pretty chilled out guy. Get in touch with the volunteers to find out more about me info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Crystal

Hi I’m Crystal! I’m an active girl with a busy mind that would suit a home with a bit of room to stretch my legs. I would benefit from an experienced family without children who can keep me entertained, and adore me all by myself. I love toys, you might even call me a hoarder…. I treasure every single one of them and I know when you’ve taken them! If you have any teddy bears that need liberating inot my collection at your place, or even if you’re willing to add to my collection you may be my perfect match. Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Xaviour

I’m Xaviour with an X – the X is for X-tra exciting! I’m a dude that likes my own space and doesn’t like to share the limelight so I need a pad that will let me be top dog. Things that cramp my style are cats, small dogs and noisy kiddies so if you don’t have any of those you might just be my perfect match! My interests include snoozing, snacking, taking forty winks and taste testing. Did I mention food? Just in case you missed it I LOVE food! If you have a tasty treat I’m putty in your hands….droooool. I would suit an experienced owner because apparently with my good looks I might bamboozle someone who doesn’t know I’m trying to get my own way. I really don’t know how the volunteers figured me out! How rude! But, if you think you might have the perfect couch for me get your people to get in touch with my people. info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Hannah

Hello I’m Hannah, a cheeky little miss ready to steal your heart! I have the cleverest ears that go straight up when I see or hear something interesting, especially if you have a squeaky toy. Oh boy oh boy I LOOOOOVE those! At only two years old I am just a baby and I like to play a lot. I would suit a more active family who would take me for lots of walks and have a bit of room to stretch my legs, so an apartment probably isn’t the best home for me at present. If you are interested in me or my friends please contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

  • DOB: 25.06.14
  • Desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and treated

Nigella

Hi I’m Nigella! Although I’m not quite Nigella Lawson I’m excellent in the kitchen – you can rely on me for any taste testing as well as disposing of any leftovers. I’m a little cheeky, but after a zoom around with my toys I’m perfectly happy to be curled up. Nothing much phases me I can snooze away no matter the location, although I have been accused of sleeping on the job at GR stalls…. I think they are just jealous they don’t look this good while snoring their heads off. If you are interested in me or any of my friends get in touch info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Dino

Hi I’m Dino and I’m one big hunk o’spunk. Yes I’m big but I’m tall dark and handsome too, so that means there is just more of me to love! Despite my size I am very good on the lead, I just bumble along at your side until something more interesting happens. I love to play but because I’m a bigger boy I would be better with older children, I just can’t help being a bit of a klutz! I’m looking forward to a family that will snuggle with me on the lounge so the couch doesn’t fly away – is that you? Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Evita

I’m Evita and I’m not your typical greyhound! All these other greyhound girls with their tiny butts and being all snooty and supermodels but I’m not like that at all! I’ve got a curvy figure and I’m not ashamed of it. I’ll have you singin’ “I like big butts” in no time. I’m a gal that likes to have a good time – there’s a pond? I’ll jump in it. A muddy patch? I’ll run in it. But when all the excitment is over I like to have a good snooze just like anyone else. If you are after a girl that just wants to have fun look  no further.

Kelly

Hi I’m Kelly! I’m looking for a home where I can be boss of the couch. Yep, that’s right. You can still be boss of the TV remote but the couch is mine ok? I’m an extremely good at being the boss – that means doing a lot of supervising doesn’t it but not much else? Such as watching you make dinner (especially my dinner) keeping an eye on the neighbourhood (I can double as security) and making sure no activity is without me! I would suit a home with a bit of room to stretch my legs but don’t forget it’s hard work doing all the above so a comfy couch for forty winks is a must. If you are interested in me or any of my friends please get in touch info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
