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…

Help bring Christmas cheer to our kennel kids!

Our good friends at Give a Dog a Bone are once again supporting Greyhound Rescue with their Christmas Appeal. Their Appeal runs from 25 November – 15 December and provides toys, treats and food to all the dogs and cats in Rescue Services on Christmas day – no one wants to wake up to an empty stocking on Christmas morning and you can help be part of the solution for these animals.

How can you help?

Helping our hounds to have a fab Christmas is easy! All you need to do is put 1 item – toy, treat or food in your shopping basket and take it to one of the Drop off Points listed on their website.

All items are delivered in time for Christmas day to the following Animal Rescue and Community Services, including 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!

Bernie (homed)

Hey there, I’m Bernie. I’m a sociable, chilled out kind of dude looking for my forever home. You won’t be able to resist my supermodel good looks – honestly, if there was a greyhound version of GQ, I’d definitely be on the front cover! All I’m really looking for though is a steady supply of cuddles, I love snuggling right in close to get the best angle for butt scratches, or ear scratches – really whatever you’ve got – I just love being close! I’m an all-round friendly guy and get along well with other dogs too.

Gus (homed)

Hi there, I’m Gus! I’m a big, lovable goofball that you will fall in love with instantly! I love meeting new people and once I’ve given you a good going over with my pointy investigation cone (I’m a curious kind of guy) you’ll be greeted with a big kiss. I am super friendly and get along with other dogs really well.

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.

Hi There, I’m Willow and since I’ve been rescued, I like to treat every day like a vacay! That’s why most days, you will find me lazing in my pool, soaking up the rays and having the volunteers fetch me something tasty off the room service menu. All this pool time seems to be really working for me – you probably won’t meet a more calm and sweet girl like me.

When I’m not in my pool, I really love just hanging out with people, a good cuddle or stretching my legs on a walk (have to work off all that room service, you know!). I’m also quite the social butterfly and love making new doggy friends.

Rose (homed)

Hi, I’m Rose – and that’s a great name for me because I am all about the LOVE! I’m a super affectionate girl and I don’t think it gets any better than cuddling up to a human for a good scratch. You know you’ve hit the sweet spot when I close my eyes and give a little chatter of my teeth – ah, bliss! If I’m not attached to a human, you’ll probably find me with my feet up in the air having a good nap. My easy going, goofy personality means that I’m a sociable kind of girl and I get along with all of the other dogs I meet.
