“I’m Zeb and I am only 3! I’m a handsome big dark brindle lad that would love someone to lean on (that’s one of my best talents, leaning). I’ would like to apply for a home position where I would be the Chief Couch Tester, and perform other duties such as Ensuring Dog Beds Don’t Fly Away. I come with 3 years of experience and would like to expand my horizons and gain experience on Couches and Beds. I am also an excellent dish licker and taste tester, and can snout out anything edible you  might have about your person. I am at bench height so don’t worry about putting it in my dish, I’ll help myself!”

If I could talk I would sound like Antonio Banderas and whisper sweet nothings in your ear to make you swoon…But because I’m a hound you will have to make do with my soulful eyes and charm instead. I am quite a snuggler and would love to cuddle up to you on a lounge and gaze at you adoringly.”

“Hi I’m Cyril! I’m a little bit goofy looking but a loveable lump that just want to please you. As you can see I wasn’t hiding behind the door when snouts were given out so this shnoz comes in very useful to nudge your butt when I want attention, poking around in your bag to see if you’ve brought me a present, and generally being a bit of a nosy parker!”

Reduced Adoption Fees

Jagger 3

As many of you know, Greyhound Rescue is completely full at the moment. With some leaving for their forever homes, but daily requests to take on many 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 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 now and January 31st any greyhound that goes on trial will only cost $250 to adopt, and payment will not be required until the end of February.

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! Please get in touch with us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or call Peter 0412 562 104.”

Nicole Kidman (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Huckleberry (Homed)

Huckleberry is kindly sponsore by Nicola & Anna.

“My name’s Huckleberry and I am one of the coolest houndies you will ever meet. I hear there is a story called the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn but I would like to write my own book called the Adventures of Huckleberry Greyhound. What I need is someone to help me write that story, and maybe we could even try some adventuring too. You don’t have to be a Mark Twain, just someone who wants to enjoy exploring everything life has to offer! I’m only young after all and there is lots to see and do and people to meet. I’ve already had one adventure at the pound and I didn’t like that very much, I’m sure there are much more fun places to be! I’ll just sit here a little bit and spend some time with volunteers at GR and when you’re ready to go adventuring you come find me. Wait…did you say you’re ready? What are you waiting for, let’s go!

Urgent Call for Adopters and Foster Carers

SONY DSC

Greyhound Rescue is FULL and overflowing! At the moment we have no available room in our main kennels or with our foster carers. Our overflow boarding kennels also have no space. The emails and phone calls don’t stop coming though – particularly this time of year coming up to Christmas when the pounds are full too and dogs cannot wait. As is usually the case we also have surrenders waiting to come in.  We desperately need more kind souls who are ready to adopt a greyhound or to foster,or we cannot save more. We know it is a tough ask with Christmas just a few short weeks away and many will be busy with lots of social engagements or travelling and unable to help , but if you are ready for the commitment to adopt or are available to foster you will save a life this Christmas. To find out more about our foster and adoption process please go here or send an email through to info@greyhoundrescue.com.au and our volunteers will be in touch shortly.
