Hi I’m Griffin and although I may not look like a griffin I’m actually a greyhound which is far more handsome y’know! hmmm. Perhaps you could call me a griffhound? Just like the stories I’m as majestic and strong as a griffin, and if I join your family I will guard your heart like it is my most treasured possession! I’m a gentle giant with a teddy bear face who just loves to be cuddled. I’ve also got a cheeky look about me too, I may get a little mischievous! If you are interested in me or any of my friends waiting for homes get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Rusty (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

 

Rusty is kindly sponsored by Jennifer.

My name is Rusty and I am a quiet timid boy looking for love. I get along with doggies of various sizes and I passed my cat tolerance test. I am looking for a home with someone who will spend time getting to know me and help me blossom into a more confident dog. If you worked from home or were retired  would be ideal. I would be best suited to a home that is quiet and relaxed, and would benefit from other doggy company.

  • Desexed, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated
  • Located in Sydney
  • Adoption cost $350
  • Cat Tolerant:Yes
  • Small Dog Tolerant: Yes
  • Child Friendly: Yes – but would be best in a home with older children as younger noisier children frighten him.

Trivia Night

Supporters we need your help! In the light of recent media reports regarding live baiting and the current NSW Inquiry the Racing Industry is in trouble. This means that Greyhound Rescue is having to take in more dogs than ever, and we need all the help we can to cope with the increased number of incoming hounds.

If you would love to help but can’t foster or adopt – how about having a fantastic night out by booking a table at our Trivia Night? Get your family together, a group of friends, workmates, your local community or sports group and help the houndies out! This is one of our main fundraisers of the year, and we would really love to see a full house. Unfortunately so far we haven’t had many confirmed bookings so we would love it if you could join us.

There are great prizes to be won, and nibblies are provided. Hosted by Brian Fairweather, this is a family friendly event so you can bring the kiddies along.

Murray’s Story

Murray is a one year old old boy who arrived at GR quite lame from a recent misdiagnosed injury.
We took him to our friends at Vineyard Vets who diagnosed a fractured pelvis. Due to the nature of the injury and the way in which the fracture would heal, without immediate surgery Murray would have had quite an uncomfortable life. Dr Luke and Dr Vaughn performed a tricky operation of a femural head and neck resection in the hope we could save Murray’s leg and give this pup the comfortable life he deserves.

After waiting with bated breath we are all ecstatic the surgery has been a success and Murray has movement in the leg!

He is now in foster care where he is having in-home physio as well as other professional treatment sessions to compliment his vet care. We are lucky to have Neil at Animal Holistic Therapies who has generously donated his expertise and time to help speed Murray’s recovery with chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. We are also grateful to Sharon and the team at K9 Swim for their expertise in hydrotherapy to help build up the muscle that has been lost and promote stabilisation of his hip. Sharon has alos kindly donated some photonic therapy. We are amazed at how well Murray has coped with everything that has happened to him and are thankful for his happy go lucky attitude and trusting, loving  nature. This adorable boy with his little white goatee is already coming along in leaps, bounds, and hops – pinching socks, counter surfing, and is quite the clown! He is getting along with a foster family of assorted hounds and cats, and will be a treasure when he is ready for a forever home!

Although our vets are tremendously supportive the surgery was worth it but expensive. The costs we have already incurred as well as the ongoing treatment Murray requires for rehabilitation is going to be approximately $3000. We thank everyone for their generous donations towards Murray and for Lucky – without your generosity we could not possibly offer these hounds a chance at not only life but a comfortable one.

Danny (Greyhound Cross) (Homed)

“Don’t adjust your screens folks, my name’s Danny and I’m a greyhound wannabe! I heard the folks at GR are really good at finding homes and I wanted in…so a whisper here and a whisper there, and I got busted out of the pound! Now, I fit into the category that “big is beautiful,” I am not petite in size, but neither is my personality. Prepare to be bowled over by my joie de vivre, unusual looks, and character.I love people to bits and just want to be friends with you. As I am quite young being only 2, I do need someone who can put the time in to showing me the right way to go about life, which unfortunately I haven’t had so far, as nobody has cared about me enough. But if you have  a good yard for me to play in and are looking for a new friend please get in touch with volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

(Lady) Rogan (Homed)

Rogan is kindly sponsored by Laura.

 

My name is Rogan, and despite being a senior don’t think I can’t be “roguish!” I’m a blue lady (that’s not a rinse, that’s my natural fur colour dear), and I can still outrun, outplay, and outsmart the best of them. I’m the sort of older lady with a twinkle in her eye that will fool you into thinking I’m helpless and innocent…and then I’ll push ahead of you onto the bus and nimbly hop up the front (maybe just the bingo bus at my age but you never know…) And probably pay in 5 coins. And I’ll chortle about it later, I’m pretty good at cracking myself up! If you think you could fall for my ladylike but roguish charms, get in touch with the volunteers info@greyhoundrescue.com.au
