CALLING FOR ADOPTERS AND FOSTERS!

We have been very busy at GR this week – six dogs have come in six days and we are FULL. Our main kennels are full, and our overflow kennels too. We have many coming in and not enough hounds going out to the homes they deserve. We urgently need foster carers and adopters so we can make room save more.

Sunny Boy (Cat Tolerant) (homed)

Sunny Boy is kindly sponsored by Jillian.

 

“They call me Sunny Boy ‘cos I’ve got a golden coat that looks like the sun and I’m sunny natured! I really like to goof off and play jokes on the volunteers – I’ll zoom towards them like I’m going to cannon into them and then I turn away at the last second and laugh my head off at my joke! I passed my cat test so I have potential to live with them. They seem ok, not as cool as us dogs if you know what I mean but I could deal with them as a housemate. The main thing I would like in a home is a loving family to have fun with me, and appreciate my sense of humour. Could that be you?! Get in touch with  the volunteers at GR if you would like to know more about me or any of my buddies waiting for a home: info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Jackson (Homed)

Jackson is kindly sponsored by Shelley & Belinda.

“I’m Jackson and I’m a pretty cool kinda guy. I’m pretty happy to give out cuddles and chill out with you. I like to think I’m the one that you can rely on to sit back and listen to what you have to say about your day. I’m not judgemental – I don’t mind that you’ve put your foot in dog poo or smell a bit funky, I’m interested in what you’ve been up to and I’ll still give you a big kiss anyway! I’m  a bit unsure about those cat things, and not too keen on those small things that call themselves dogs, but if you have a house that is cat free and small dog free do you think I could come live with you?! You do?! then get in touch with the GR volunteers! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au”

Zara (Cat Tolerant) (Homed)

Zara is kindly sponsored by Jennifer.

“They call me Zoomie Zara…because I zoom around looking at everything! See these ears? They do tricks! See my eyes? I’m always on the lookout for something interesting. In fact, I heard someone say that I’m a bit of a nosy parker and would be pretty good at Neighbourhood Watch. I’m not sure what that means exactly but I’m sure it means I would be pretty useful to have around the house. Can you imagine me sitting on your sofa, and poking my nose out between the curtains to find out what everyone’s doing in your town?  I hear every word on the street around these digs. I’m currently in foster with four other doggies, these funny little dogs called cats, chickens, and a duck. According to my foster mummy it makes me super special to get along with these cat things. I would also really love a doggy friend to be with, I like company and snuggling up to my foster brother. If you think you have the home for me  get in touch with those volunteers at GR info@greyhoundrescue.com.au to meet me or one of my friends!”

Terence (Homed)

Terence is kindly sponsored by Nicole.

“My name is Terence and I’m a pretty cool dude looking for a forever home. I love to play in the yard with the toys and zoom after the ball, but in my opinion balls are for humans to throw and me to chase, if I brought it back to you, you wouldn’t have much to do now would you? I’m always well dressed in my glossy black coat, and I don’t want to blow my own horn here people, but I make plenty of ladies swoon! If you want to have everyone stop and stare at the best dressed dog in town (oh, and you of course) then you need to contact those nice people at GR and get them to set us up on a date! info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Terence is:

  • DOB 16.12.12
  • Desexed,vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated

Grace Kelly (Homed)

 

This is what Grace has to say about herself:

“My name is Grace Kelly and I came to GR at 16 weeks old with pathological (that’s a very big word for a baby greyhound) fractures in my back legs! I am now a 10 month old puppy with a healthy life ahead of me. Because I’ve been a long term foster until my little legs grew and recovered, I’ve had lots of TLC from two foster families who have had their own dogs as well as other fosters in and out of the house. As a result I’ve been very well socialised with dogs of various breeds and sizes, and my foster families say I am growing into a well- rounded dog. I’m used to living with lots of company, so I’m very adaptable.

I have been learning Come! On Your Bed! Stay! Look! And Leave It! but I’m an independent girl that knows my own mind so I still need a bit of convincing to do what I’m asked (my foster mum says it’s called Training but I like to think of it as Treating hehehehe).

I’m looking for a forever home that might have a friend or I will get very lonely if you are at work all day. Both of my foster mummies say I would benefit from having an older (and bigger dog) dog boss me around (well that’s what they think anyway! I’ll just let them think I’m bossed around…)

I have been getting various treatments to rehabilitate my legs, including visits to hydrotherapy with Sharon at K9 Swim. I love water – when I was only very very little I liked to launch my whole body into the water bucket for a drink, but now I’m bigger I can’t quite work out why this doesn’t work anymore so I have to make do with putting my whole head in instead! Life will never be boring with me!”

Grace is as elegant as her namesake but hidden behind that sleek physique is a cheeky little kleptomaniac who can often be found roaching away with her collection of soft toys, as well as her foster parents’ belongings (socks and undies are her favourite!). She is outgoing and playful, affectionate, and loves to snuggle, you can’t help but fall in love with this little lady.

As she is still a puppy and has a very determined and independent personality that has got her through the knocks of her early life, Grace will need a family that has the time to commit to reinforcing her dog manners and ongoing training. She is compatible with children over 10, and small dogs. To continue to live with  very small dogs Grace will need the right introductions, ongoing supervision, and reinforcement.

If you think you have the right palace…erm, we mean home…to fit her royal highness, or have any questions please contact us info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

Grace is:

  • 9 months old (DOB 12.6.14)
  • Located in Sydney/ Blue Mountains
  • Adoption cost $400
  • Desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and treated
  • Not cat tolerant
  • Small dog tolerant
  • Child friendly (over 10)

Calling for fosters and funds!

image

Greyhound lovers, we beg for your help. Due to the recent airing of Four Corners we are under the most pressure we have ever been under, to take surrendered greyhounds. Our inbox has been flooded and phones have not stopped ringing.

WE WANT TO SAVE THEM! We are desperately begging for foster carers and donations to help us build more kennels on our new property to enable us to take more surrendered greyhounds and to be able to pay private boarding kennels to reduce the amount that trainers or owners may feel they have to euthanise.

Any donation small or large would be greatly appreciated or if you can foster in NSW please email info@greyhoundrescue.com.au

AccountName: Greyhound Rescue Inc
BSB: 012289
Account No: 524792379
Reference: Donation

Please send an accompanying email to peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au with your details to let Janet and Peter know you have donated.

For PayPal: http://greyhoundrescue.com.au/how-you-can-help/

Please share, this is a matter of urgency!
