Humphrey (homed)

Humphrey is kindly sponsored by Leigh & Pat.

 

I’m Humphrey (named after Humphrey Bogart), and unless I get busted outta here soon there’s going to be a canine mutiny I tell ya! Being in kennels is all very well but I’m a young hunk of hound that needs to be out exploring life and checking out couches not stuck in this routine! I would do best in a home with a bit of space to stretch my legs, so I would not suit apartment living. I’ve got plenty of charisma and some to spare, and being the friendly personable boy I am would do best with some company. I arrived with some of my siblings and we are all used to being with each other so it would be unfair to go somewhereI would be alone for long periods of time. As I’m just a baby I need someone who can put is some time and has some experience with basic pet manners and training – I’ve never raced at all. I get along with other dogs and people really well but would be best without small dogs or tiny tots due to my size and zest for life. If you think you can break me outta here with an honourable discharge I’d be very grateful!

Twix (Homed)

Hi I’m Twix, and I’m as sweet as any chocolate bar! I am great with other dogs, good natured, and good with children. I would happily live with other doggy company and I’m looking for somewhere with a little bit of room for me to go outside, so would not suit an inner city unit. I am great at cuddles and can’t wait to find my family to love! Contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Christmas Time Reduced Adoption Fees

As many of you know, Greyhound Rescue is always completely full. With some leaving for their forever homes, but daily requests to take on  more, we cannot save them all as there is literally “no room at the inn.” As joyful as the Christmas season is, the cost to adopt at an expensive time of year is an obstacle for some people who would otherwise be only too willing to give a greyhound a home. This is a pity as many people are on annual leave and school holidays and are at home more which is a great time to settle in a new family member.

In an effort to find homes for the hounds during this time of year- and enable us to save the many more we are asked to take every day –  we are offering a reduction in our adoption fee. We will be waiving the usual $100 deposit when a hound goes on trial, and also offering  a longer period in which to finalise the adoption payment. Between 1st December 2016 and January 31st  2017 any greyhound that goes on trial will only cost $250 to adopt, and payment will not be required until the end of February 2017.

If you have been thinking you would love to give a greyhound a forever home but it might be stretching your budget at this time of year, this might be the perfect opportunity to adopt after all! To get ready for your new family member and start our application process please contact info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

A Successful Trivia Night

thanks

 

A BIG thank to everyone involved in our annual Trivia Night. To the 110 people who attended and also to everyone who donated items and contributed to the running of the event to make this our most successful Trivia Night to date. The evening raised a much needed $6297!!! We are blown away by everyone’s participation in whatever capacity and are thankful for every bit.

All of the proceeds go directly to saving and rehoming the hounds and without such generosity GR could not do the work we do. We look forward to seeing you all and many more at our next fundraising event!

George (Homed)

George is kindly sponsored by Karen, Amanda .

 

You know, there are soooo many famous Georges out there…. Prince George, Boy George, George Columbaris, George of the Jungle…but you haven’t met the best of them yet. Oh, haven’t I introduced myself yet? That would be me, I’m George! I’m a bit of a dude and I’m looking for a home that likes to be active. Although like most greyhounds I’m pretty comfy on the lounge I do like a rumble and zoom around. If there are teenage boys at your place I’d be just the ticket – I’d entertain them for ages in the yard with a footy. And also, I heard teenagers like lots of food, so maybe I’d get to clean up all kinds of stuff left lying around so I’d save you the job. Yep, I’ve got it figured out – you need someone to clean up after your teenagers well that would be a job for me! As long as you don’t have any cats or small dogs we will get along just great – contact info@geryhoundrescue.com.au

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!

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

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
