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!

Hi I’m Henney! I’m a petite little girl light on her toes and heavy on the smooching. Yep, all you will want to do is love me I can assure you! I am great with kiddies and other doggies, playful, and would love a family who I can make feel are the most important people on God’s green earth. I like to be with people and enjoy company so I would be best in a family where I have other dogs or people to hang out with most of the time or I would be a bit sad and you wouldn’t want that would you? If you are interested in me or any other houndies waiting for a couch get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Hiya I’m Mikey and I arrived just after my namesake Mike Baird announced that greyhound racing was going to be banned in NSW! Just like Mike I had a little mishap so I haven’t been available to adopt until now but oh boy are you going to fall in love with me! Not only am I incredibly good looking, smart, and ever so cuddly I am one cool dude. I loooooove the ladies, I’m great with kiddies, and an all round nice guy. I’m looking for a career in investment loving (I give you back 1000% on your love) and I’ll leave politics to the experts. I just want to hang out with you on your lounge, have a good walk, and catch up on snoozing. If you are interested in me or any of my kennel mates get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Peggy Sue (Homed)

Hello I’m Peggy -Sue! I arrived to GR not in the best condition with two other houndies and had to spend a few days at the dogtors but I’m doing so much better now thanks to some emergency foster care. I’m getting fatter every day, my coat is getting sleeker and I love all the friends I’m making. My talents include: finding the comfiest spot in the house, making sure the bed doesn’t fly away, detecting any food about (trust me I’m very thorough) and poking my nose where it probably doesn’t belong. I am a GREYT detective! Although…if your breakfast goes missing I don’t think I would be able to pursue the case (I might incriminate myself). Did I mention I’m also an excellent snuggler and get along with other doggies really well? As long as you don’t have cats I’m sure we will get along just fine!

Hi I’m JK (or John or Johnathan) and I was named after the late John Kaye, a good friend and advocate for us houndies. I arrived to GR in not the best condition with two other ladies but after some TLC here at GR HQ I’m doing much better. Ever so handsome I’m slipping into my senior years ever so gracefully and prefer to hang out with the ladies. I am good with children, but would prefer a home without kitties or small fluffy dogs. I’m gentle and sweet, a real teddy bear and just like chilling out in the sunshine. Who can resist my handsome face? If you have a couch for me get in touch with the volunteers, info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Hi I’m Ricky and just like that Ricky Martin I’m not only good looking but I’ve got all the right moves! Er, that is, if  you don’t mind me moving in on your couch. Don’t count on me for too much singing though, I’ll leave that to the professionals.  I’m a sociable chilled out dude looking for my forever soul mate. You can’t resist my “blue steel” modelling techniques and if there was a hound equivalent of Q magazine rest assured I’d be on the front cover. Cats cramp my style but medium and some smaller dogs I don’t mind as my admirers. Kiddies are totally ok I don’t mind them so what are you waiting for?

Spike (Homed)

Hi ya I’m Spike, and unlike my name I’m not spikey at all! I am a relaxed cool dude looking for my forever couch. I have a extra special quirk in that I love to “grin” when I say hello to people so although it looks  a bit scarey I promise you I’m the goofiest laid back lad around! Now wouldn’t you love a dog with that extra special talent?I’m great with kiddies, and I am fairly relaxed around smaller dogs so far. Really, I’m just a loveable lump of hound that I know you won’t be able to resist. Get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

I’m Maxwell – Maxwell Smart that is, and just like my namesake I am slightly goofy, loveable, and my attention span can be a little adrift. So what if occasionally I can be caught licking your pants…your shoes…your shirt…wait, what was I saying? You smell so good I got distracted! Oh yes, would you believe I’m absolutely perfect and won’t be any trouble at all? No…? Would you believe mostly perfect? Ok, how about not perfect but devillishly handsome and entertaining to boot? Wonderful! Until recently I was caught in a world of chaos as a racing greyhound, but now I’m in the control of GR and looking for my forever home. If you are interested in me and any of my greyhound friends get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Hi I’m Theo and I am a toy connoisseur. I collect and test every toy that is available at GR, and I’ll tell you which ones are the best : ALL of them!!! When it comes to teddy bears please don’t expect me to share. In fact, if I spot you with one I will demand to see your teddy bear licence and while you are fumbling for it I will confiscate it. Of course because I’m a greyhound you won’t even see where I’ve gone, you’ll just see dust, ahahahaha! Of course, if you are happy to give me a home with lots of toys that I don’t have to share with anybody I would be very grateful. When I’m not toy-napping I’m stealing your heart, and commandeering cuddles. If you’d like to see if we are the perfect match contact the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
