More donations

Greyhound Rescue is proud to announce donations from Jess at Cross City Logistics, from Maureen in Killarney Heights and Amanda Waring and friends in Mosman. We are most grateful for this support which enables us to continue to rescue more greyhounds who deserve a life after racing or instead of racing.

We apologise if we have not mentioned any major donators and any omission is unintended.

More foster homes

February and March seem to have been the months for foster homes but not forever homes. We are very grateful to the number of people who have come forward to help with fostering a greyhound and this week end has seen Blackie go to Peter and Claire in Ermington, Louis go to Andy at Beacon Hill and Oliver go to Colleen and family at Wentworthville, who have already adopted Angie. Thank you again to all of these people and this means that we can now bring more greyhounds home to learn the ropes of living in a house as opposed to a kennel.

If anyone else can help in this way, then please contact us as we still have more greyhounds in kennels.

Foster Homes

Thank you to Jessica who is looking after Dasher and Tinsel, Jody and Richard who are looking after Anna and now Carol and family who are looking after the charismatic Tiger. We are very grateful to you all for the help that you are giving us. Every greyhound that goes into a foster home means that we can bring one more home from kennels to not only live in more comfortable surroundings but also learn how to live in a home with vacuums, washing machines, little dogs etc.

If you can help by fostering a greyhound, or adopting one, you would be doing a wonderful service and we would be very grateful to you. Please contact Peter or Janet on 0412 562 104

Foster homes coming in

On Friday the ‘Manly Daily’ ran a small article for us and we have had a heartwarming response, with 3 greyhounds already installed in foster homes this week-end as a result and two more potential foster families to follow up. Thank you to all those who have helped so generously and responded so quickly.

However, we still have a lot more greyhounds who are currently in kennels and we would love them to be living in homes with foster carers. So if you can help us and foster a beautiful greyhound, they are so gentle and affectionate you just have to experience it to believe it, then you would be doing a wonderful thing for the animal world.

Please email or call us on 02 9453 0602 or 0412 562 104

Lucky boy. Next time we hope to see Willoughby on the surf board!!

A brave and loyal greyhound

This is a very moving story and shows that while greyhounds are known to be gentle and affectionate, they are also loyal and brave as well.

‘We have just lost our beloved rescue greyhound Lily. Lily was attacked while I was walking her with my 8 yo daughter. Lily sustained horrific injuries from which she did not recover, despite the most intensive vet care possible. Lily, a dog born to run did not, instead she put her body between mine and the attacking dog.
Just wanted people who read this to know that greyhounds are also loyal and brave as well as kind and gentle.’  Bronwyn.

Thank you for the help

We would like to extend a very big thank you to:

*  those who have helped us throughout the year, in particular our foster carers and those at the ‘coal face’

*  those of you who have adopted one of our greyhounds, saved a life and given them a loving home. 26 families so far have adopted a greyhound from us in 2009. Can we make it 30 before the New Year?

*  those of you who have helped by making donations, etc

*  those who have helped us through their business, Petbiz at Belrose and Balgowlah, McDonad’s butchers at Dee Why, Forestville Printing, Annette at Baliz Woof Woof, Greg at Barkshire Kennels, Box Hill and Williams River Vet Clinics, The Manly Daily, The Pure Platinum Club.

*  anyone else who has helped in any manner at all

We wish you all The Season’s Greetings for a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to your continued support in 2010.

Thank you again

Fundraiser at The Pure Platinum Club raises $2000

‘Recently The Pure Platinum Club at 252, Pitt St, Sydney did a Fundraiser with some of the proceeds going to Greyhound Rescue. It was a great evening, run and organised by Rob Batchelor  who was in great form as MC. He had put together an impressive programme for the evening, the highlight of which were some very professional performances by the girls.
Greyhound Rescue is indebted to Rob and the girls in particular, but also to anyone else who came along to support us, as $2000 was raised and donated to Greyhound Rescue from the evenings proceedings.
Thank you to everyone who made the evening so successful and enjoyable. Apart from anything else we had a great night out and it was really good fun.
Peter and Jan
