Mouse (Homed)

Mouse is kindly sponsored by Leigh & Pat.

 

Would you like a little mouse in your house? Of course you would if that mouse was me! At six years old I am well past the puppy stage and looking for the finer things in life to enjoy – sedate walks, long naps, fine dining and lazy afternoons cuddled into your lap. I promise I won’t nibble through your pantry (ok well maybe if you left it open a girl can’t help it if you leave it up for grabs) but I will nibble my way into your heart. I’m such a sweetheart, and have a gentle loving disposition so I would suit a variety of homes (as long as you don’t have a cat, mousies don’t like cats!) I am great with kids and get along with most other friendly doggies. I promise I’ll be as quiet as a …..mouse! Contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

I’m Caprice and although I can be a little shy at first I’m getting used to all this love and attention from the volunteers! With my salt and pepper snout I may look an old lady but let’s just say I am dignified for my age – I’m only four. I get along with most other friendly doggies and I’m great around kiddies just make sure you have a home without kitties. Despite my name I’m sure I won’t change my mind if you offer me a spot at your place, I really don’t need much and I promise I won’t be too much bother! Contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

The name’s Digger and I’m prepared to dig my way through all the blankies and onto your bed…er I mean couch…ummm. Whoops dobbed myself in there!

Lots of walks? Yes? then get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Timon (Homed)

I’m Timon and I’m no passing craze – if you adopt me you’ll have no worries for the rest of your days! Ok, so maybe not all worries for you (certainly my worries will be over) but adopting a houndie is very good for your health you know. Think exercise in the fresh air, a loving companion, and someone to snuggle into at night! Yep, I’ll have you singing hakuna matata in a heartbeat, it’s my motto after all. I’m such a handsome friendly fellow looking for my forever home, I know you’ll just love me if you give me a chance. I’m only two, ever so playful and goofy and looking for a home without cats or pocket pets. Contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Astrid (Homed)

Astrid is kindly sponsored by Nicola, Lisa, Sue, Shelley, Belinda & The No Meat Athelete Team.

 

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.

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!

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 into 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 (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

Hannah (Homed)

Hannah is kindly sponsored by Silvia, Sarah, Daniel, Fiona, Jodi, Ashley & Nathan.

 

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
