Volunteer of the Month

Margot with Ruby

We’d like to introduce you to Margot, one of our very dedicated volunteers who is our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for June. 

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 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 co-operation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Margot about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue.  Read More »

Arlo (homed)

Hi there! I’m Arlo and I found my way to Greyhound Rescue not in the best shape. You see, I had a broken leg and it took a little while to heal, which means I’ll need an extra special home to help look after my leg and manage any pain as I get older. I have a little bit of a limp but I do still really enjoy my walks. What does this mean for my forever family? This means I’m classed as a sanctuary dog and Greyhound Rescue will cover any vet expenses for any ongoing issues with my leg for the rest of my life.

All of that aside, I’m the goofiest, cuddliest boy you’ll ever meet! I’m full of personality and my favourite thing in the world is belly rubs… and more belly rubs… I really love belly rubs. I’m also good with kids if they’re a bit older and great with other dogs. Read More »

Summer (homed)

“Hi, I’m Summer, a shameless roacher who will try it anytime, anywhere! I’m a pocket sized houndie at just 23kg but I’m full of beans and looking for a running partner. If you are fit (or would like to get fit) I may be the hound for you! Forget Jenny Craig or Lite n’ Easy, you haven’t tried Summer Bootcamp yet!! I am good with kids, but my, uh – ‘effervescent sparkle’ may be too much for the littlies, so no toddlers. I’m also probably better as an only fur-kid as I like to wear my bossy pants when I’m around other dogs.” Read More »

Pointy Pembleton is here!

Desperately needed dollars for rescue greyhounds via crowd funding

Dog lovers are invited to help raise dollars for rescue greyhounds by pre-ordering new Australian children’s picture book via an exciting, new crowdfunding campaign, launching today on Chuffed.org

The campaign will fund the production of Pointy Pembleton Visits the Dog Park which is about a gregarious greyhound character who shows children how to accept others that may be a little different.

“We are two Greyhound Rescue volunteers who want to use our skills to raise funds in an innovative and fun new way. Pointy Pembleton teaches children that friendship can sometimes take you by surprise,” said Nat Panzarino, author.

Nat, an English teacher and mother of two, and Fer Wicker, illustrator, have teamed up to bring Pointy Pembleton – picture book hero – to life on the pages of a whimsical, beautifully written book with gorgeous watercolour illustrations.

“We want to use our skills, not only raise funds for dogs in desperate need, but also to raise awareness about greyhounds as family pets. They are wonderful, gentle dogs and they make amazing family pets,” said Fer.

The campaign aims to raise $15,000 to print, market and distribute 2,000 copies of the book. Money from the sale of each book will be donated to Greyhound Rescue Inc.

There are thousands of greyhounds who are unloved, without a family of their own. “No longer wanted by the racing industry, most greyhounds are simply killed. This is referred to by the industry as ‘wastage’,” said Nat.

Rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of retired racing greyhounds in an expensive undertaking.

“Ongoing funds are required for organisations like Greyhound Rescue to continue finding loving homes. These dogs deserve as much love as a poodle or a pug or a chihuahua,” said Fer.

Cosmo (homed)

Hi, I’m Cosmo and I’m rather a special hound… you see, I’m already a Greenhound! Apparently, I passed my test with flying colours. I’m rather social and love making new friends, I also love the company of people but I’m perfectly happy with my own company – an all round chilled out kind of guy. I really love going for walks, and I’m even good off leash – but being a typical greyhound – a short walk and a zoomie and I’m done for the day. I’m not really a fan of cats, I find them a bit scary, but I’m great with other dogs and fine with kids if they’re a bit older. Read More »

Chloe (homed)

I’m Chloe and I’m what you might call a pocket rocket. Even though I’m teeny tiny, what I lack in size, I make up for in personality! I’m a fun loving gal who loves to get out and about and would love a home with loads of toys to play with and maybe a backyard to stretch my legs or do a zoomie or two. Being quite the social girl, I get along well with other dogs and kids aren’t a problem for me. Read More »

Marshall (homed)

I’m Marshall, and I’m a friendly, fun loving guy. I mean, just look at my goofy big smile! Surely that’s enough to win you over right now. What I’d really love is a comfy bed to call my own and someone to take me out on walks – that’s when I really smile! I’m okay with other dogs but I definitely prefer the company of ladies.

Dino (homed)

Hi I’m Dino and I’m one big hunk o’spunk. Yes I’m big but I’m tall dark and handsome too, so that means there is just more of me to love! Despite my size, I am very good on the lead, I just bumble along at your side until something more interesting happens. I love to play but because I’m a bigger boy I would be better with older children, I just can’t help being a bit of a klutz! I’m looking forward to a family that will snuggle with me on the lounge so the couch doesn’t fly away – is that you?
