Hi I’m Queenie and with a name as regal as mine I’m expecting some royal treatment around here! I’m looking for a palace to call my own; a servant or two to serve my meals and chaperone my walks, and don’t forget a pillow plumper for my lounge! Don’t forget a few designer coats and neckwear will be in order. I’m not demanding really, it’s just the basics in life a greyhound deserves after all. I am sociable with other dogs, and friendly small dogs are no problem but please no cats. I do need of a confident doggy friend to keep me company as I don’t cope very well being by myself, and you wouldn’t want me to be sad while you are at work would you? I’ve already been in a home and got the basics wrapped up -I really am such a sweetheart,  if you think you can give me a palace get your people to contact my people!

Candy

Hi I’m Candy, and when I get excited you would think I’ve been eating candy! Being white I will need an outdoor area that is covered to protect my skin in Summer if I am left outside during the day. I am good with kids, and ok with other houndies. What I’m looking for is someone with a yard, and a good walking partner. I like to get out and move and do stuff. I’m still a houndie that enjoys a nap but I’m not the sort that will be okay left in an apartment by myself with only a short stroll in the morning. I need toys to keep me busy, and exercise to keep me occupied. I could be your new personal trainer, how about it? Contact info@reyhoundrescue.com.au

Sam

I am Sam, AKA Sammy Seal, and I’m looking for a home where I can be treated as the king I am. I prefer to have a kingdom of one so at present I would be better without other doggies to compete for attention. Small humans are ok, make sure they know how to treat me with the respect I deserve though! I am super playful and love my toys, so when I arrive at your palace make sure you present me with lots of tokens of your adoration. If you have the Castle fit for me get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Joe Dirt

Hi I’m Joe Dirt, brother to Alexander the Greyt. I love meeting new doggy friends and playing with them. I’m good with kids so if you there are tiny humans at your house I’m alright with that. I’m as cute as a black button and so snuggly and friendly. So what if I do the occasional bit of landscaping and sit in it to cool off? Give me a sandpit and I’ll landscape that. Now I may be a hill billy compared to my sleek brindle brother but everyone knows black goes with everything anyway – pick the underdog and I won’t disappoint you!

Alexander the Greyt

Hi I’m Alexander the Greyt. I’m the class clown, a goofy loveable giraffe on roller skates that you will fall in love with instantly! I adore tiny humans – they are great fun and I would love to have some of those in my new family. My favourite toy is my red dumbbell which I carry around everywhere, but I would be really happy if there were more toys at your house. I am super friendly and get along with other dogs really well. If you have a couch for me at your place get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Rupert

Hi I’m Rupert, and I’m looking for a home that keep me in style. I like to dine alone, so not kiddies that will disturb my degustation time thanks! I am good with other greyhounds, and I love the ladies but I have yet to meet other breeds. I have the best buns of steel you will ever see and I’m not afraid to show them off. Seriously, I need to be in GQ or something, maybe you can be my agent? If you want a lean, clean, roaching machine I may be the hound for you.  Get in touch with the matchmakers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Reece

Hi I’m Reece. I’m just a really nice boy, the kind of boy a girl doggy would take home to meet her pawrents! I am great with other dogs and very friendly. Small humans are ok by me, so if you have some of those at your house I can live with those. After I have got over the excitement of going for a WALK (yeah, yeah, love those give me lots of those) I am good on lead. I’m also a really gentle eater and nibble softly out of your hands if you give me a bikkie. If you think I could match your family get in touch with the matchmakers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Ziggy

Hi I’m Ziggy, I’m very friendly and will give you a big smile, I’m good with other greyhounds, but I haven’t hung around anydoggy else yet. I am great with kids, although I can be a little timid around loud noises so would be best in a quiet household. I am too energetic at present for an apartment so would be best suited to a back yard. I love to give you grins if you say cheese, it may look scary but I’m just so  HAPPY to see you! When I’ve finished my meal I like to take my bowl somewhere else – I’d put it in the sink for washing up but I just can’t get there! If you think I may be your perfect match get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Volunteer of the Month – March

Dicken

No doubt about it, we wish there were more people like this in the world!

Meet Dicken. He is the sort of person that goes about his volunteering work quietly in the background, doing his thing. He’s the sort of volunteer that when we find mysterious but much needed items at kennels that seem to have come from thin air (buckets, bags, etc) it’s a bet Dicken is behind it because he never makes a fuss about his contributions! Thank you Dicken for everything you do!

1.When and how did you first get involved with GR?
I started volunteering at the current kennels about 18 months ago. I came across GR when I was looking for a greyhound to adopt a few years ago and used to help out at the previous GR kennel which was smaller and as well equipped as the current one.
 
2.Do you have any greyhounds or dogs of your own?
I used to have a greyhound but sadly it passed away about 20 months ago. Before that I had two golden retrievers. I’m looking to adopt another one hopefully in the very near future (a greyhound of course).
 
3.What do you find most challenging about GR?
I guess the most challenging part of GR is to change people’s misconception about greyhounds. Many people still think greyhounds are vicious animals because they are muzzled when they are out in public or when they race and because of that some people don’t see greyhounds as family pets. But gladly due to the recent publicity of greyhound racing and the on-going education from animal charity groups such as GR, more and more people now realize greyhounds can be wonderful family pets.
 
4.Why do you support GR as opposed to other rescue groups?
I was researching greyhounds a while ago when I was looking to adopt one and came across GR and was really impressed by the effort and determination of Peter and Janet (founders of GR) in saving abandoned greyhounds. Being a small non-profit charity organization without any government subsidies they rely heavily on help from volunteers and sponsors/donors.
 
5.When your friends or family find out that you volunteer what do they say or ask?
They are really supportive and love to know more about greyhounds. Some are even considering greyhounds as they next pets!
 
6.What would you tell someone who is thinking about volunteering
You won’t regret it. Thinking about what the dogs went through before they arrive at GR and seeing the transformation the dogs make at GR will bring a smile to your face and your heart.
 
7.What do you do when you aren’t volunteering or working?
Chillaxing and sleeping.
 
8. What might someone be surprised to learn about you
I love coffee. I may have 6-7 cups of ristretto a day and still manage to fall asleep on the couch by 8PM!
 
9. If you could use three words only to describe greyhounds, what would they be?
Lazy, easy-going, funny.
 
10. And lastly, who is your favourite kennel kid at the moment and why!
They’re all my favourites but if I really have to pick one it’d be Humphrey. Whenever he sees you he can’t wait to jump up to give you lots of kisses on your face (and muddy paw prints on your shirt on a rainy day).
