Scooter

Hi, I’m Scooter! I’m just a big softie that loves a scratch and a cuddle and will follow you around everywhere… you never know where that extra cuddle might come from! I do enjoy a bit of a zoom around with my toys, I guess that’s why they call me Scooter. I’m also good with other large dogs, but they can’t be too small though – those small fluffy ones look like toys to me!

Volunteer of the Month – December

We’d like to introduce you to Lex, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of December.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands-on on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Lex to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Human foods that hounds should avoid

We all love to spoil our beloved hounds, but did you know that there are some human foods that are strictly off-limits? We’ve spoken to some vets about what you should avoid sharing, and what to do if your dog does get their paws on a food that they shouldn’t!

Nubi

Hi! I’m Nubi – I was named after the Egyptian god Anubis, but it’s such a big name for a young boy like me so I prefer to go by my nickname ‘Nubi’. It’s pretty fitting as I’m a bit of a newbie to this pet life, which is why I’m currently in foster learning the ropes… and I’m learning really quickly how good cuddles are!

As I’m I am still quite young and have little bit more energy to burn, I would be best suited to a home with a yard rather than an apartment so I can have a bit of a leg stretch and keep myself busy while you are out. I walk well on the lead and love going for long walks. So far, I get along well with other greyhounds but I’m a little bit too interested in anything small and fluffy.  I would suit a family without very young children, but if you have some teenagers I’d be a greyt companion.

Help Iona Heal

Iona needs our help to heal

Iona came to Greyhound Rescue just recently, and has shown herself to be an incredibly sweet and affectionate lady. After a prior injury left her predisposed to dislocating her toe, and after repeated dislocations, vets made the tough call to amputate the toe in order to save her from future pain and suffering.

To date, Iona’s vet bills are over $1500 and will continue to climb as she needs ongoing veterinary care, and possible physiotherapy, while she starts along the road to recovery.

 

Iona is described by everyone who meets her as a sweet and affectionate dog who just loves the company of people. She deserves a loving forever home with a family who will give her all the love and ear scratches that she can get, and at just three years old Iona is just a young pup with plenty of ear scratching time ahead of her.

We need to raise the money to cover her surgery and ongoing care. Greyhound Rescue isn’t government funded, in fact, we rely entirely on kind donors just like you in order for us to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these gorgeous dogs.

Can you make a tax-deductible donation to help Iona heal?
