Hi I’m Astrid! I might have one of the cutest needle noses you have ever seen but hidden beneath I’m a cheeky playful possum that will do everything I can to get my own way (extra snacks, cuddles, playtime…) I’m also a water baby and love to dip my feet in the water bucket, my only problem is I still can’t figure out how to get all four in there so I might have to take some yoga classes to figure out how to do it! If you had somewhere for a paddle pool at your house I might just fit in there somewhere – don’t forget I need a comfy couch too! I’m a friendly girl but would be best in a home without pocket pets or cats. If you are interested in me or any of my greyhound friends contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Racing Ban Reversal

While we are extremely disappointed with the planned reversal on the greyhound racing ban in NSW, we at Greyhound Rescue will continue to do as we have always done – continue to rescue and rehome hounds that need our help. We are not activists as all our energy and limited resources is focused on rescue – but we will always support those that do and will continue to fight for an end to greyhound racing however we can.

Regardless of the announcement today it is not the end of the greyhounds’ journey or their story.

A lot of people have put in a tremendous effort to be their voice and a lot of progress has been made – the plight of greyhounds and their welfare have been put in the spotlight like never before. The Racing Industry has been put on notice, and will be watched very closely for the changes that have been, and are planned to be made. We welcome anything that improves the welfare of the hounds.

We have had an increase in adoptions following the release of the Special Commission of Inquiry’s Report in July and have been flooded with enquiries and messages. Our volunteers have been working harder than ever before behind the scenes to keep up! Let’s not lose that momentum – keep sharing, keep supporting us and other independent rescue groups, and being the voice for greyhounds throughout Australia. Whatever the government is doing our work does not stop. The greyhounds that need our help can’t wait for politicians, they need us every day!

Thank you to all of our supporters and sponsors for all the encouragement, support, and fund raising to help us do our job. As we get no official help we could not have saved and homed over 1000 greyhounds without you – that is the power of a community. And finally an enormous thankyou to all of our volunteers in their various roles for sacrificing so much to help the hounds. We will never give up.

Eleanor (Homed)

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 (Homed)

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

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 into my collection at your place, or even if you’re willing to add to my collection you may be my perfect match.

Xaviour (Homed)

Xaviour is kindly sponsored by Ross, Jordan, Margot & Taryn.

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

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

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

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 (Homed)

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
