I’m Elton (after Elton John you know) I can be a bit shy at first meeting new people, so don’t go breaking my heart and overlook me! I am gently playful and give the best cuddles around. I believe that everything worth doing takes time (napping, eating, making friends) life wasn’t meant to be rushed.  I don’t like being bossed about so will appreciate a home with other dogs that are calm. With my cute overbite, I may look a little funny but it just adds to my character. Kids are OK by me, as long as they aren’t too noisy or I may get a bit scared.

Hi! I’m Leo and you know I’d be lyin’ if I didn’t say I’m looking to be king of your couch!

I’m a happy boy who loves a play and a good zoomie. I love my toys especially if they squeak! So when I arrive at your place, make sure you’re well stocked. I also have my lazy moments too, I’m happy to relax and have a chill – always keeping one ear up, and watching the world go by. I’m the biggest water baby you’ve ever met – so you’ll have to get a kiddie pool for me to chill in or if you lived near the beach, even better! Being the laid-back kind of guy I am, I get on well with other dogs and if you have any tiny humans, they’re OK by me too.

Lucy (homed

Hi – I’m Lucy and everybody loves me! I’m a pretty and petite little girl who’s not long finished racing so I’m really keen to find out what this pet life is all about. I’m sweet and affectionate and really more interested in cuddles than chasing a ball. In fact, I love cuddles so much I get super excited when I meet new people – hey, I’m all about maximising any potential cuddle time!  I’m good with other dogs too so you’ve got any fur-siblings for me, that’s just ‘greyt’.  I haven’t met a lot of kids but they shouldn’t be a problem for me either.

Volunteer of the Month – September

We’d like to introduce you to Natalie, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of  September.

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 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 Natalie to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Lush Cosmetics – Charity Pot Launch

Greyhound Rescue would like to say a big thank you to Lush Cosmetics for its support of our work and launching the Greyhound Rescue Charity Pot featuring our very own super hound Bevan. Every purchase of the Charity Pot funds charities like ours and helps us keep saving greyhounds’ lives.

The launch was a wonderfully colourful event with lots of great vibes, happy hounds and people enjoying the sunshine and celebrations at Lush’s Sydney manufacturing facility. Many thanks to Carol for driving from Newcastle to take the photos and support the event, Tim with Donny and Sugar, and Tara for letting us include Lucy and Pigeon.

Look out for the Greyhound Rescue Charity Pot in a Lush store near you! Find your local store »

Rupert (homed)

Hi! I’m Rupert, and I’m looking for a home that keeps me in style. As you can see – I’m really ridiculously good looking and I have the best buns of steel you will ever see and I’m not afraid to show them off. Seriously, I need to be in GQ or something, maybe you can be my agent?

I’m OK with other greyhounds, and definitely prefer the company of ladies. I’m not really into sharing the limelight though, I prefer to be the centre of attention, can you blame me? It’s all about me after all! Also, I like to prefer to dine alone, so no small kiddies that will disturb my degustation time thanks!

Marlo (on trial)

How you doin’? I’m Marlo and if tall, dark and handsome is your type – I’m the hound for you!  I’m a fun outgoing, fun loving kind of guy with a bounce in my step.  I love my toys and will play games with you over and over if you let me. I love to lean right in for a cuddle and if you scratch me in just the right place – my teeth will chatter together with happiness!

I’m new to this pet business so I’m looking for someone to help show me the ropes – the word here at the kennels is I might even get a nice comfy couch to share with my new family! I can be a little bit excited around other dogs so it might be best if I’m the only fur kid so I can be the centre of attention. Children could be OK if they’re a bit older – sometimes I can be a bit of a klutz!

Gaius (homed)

Hi there! I’m Gaius! They tell me I’ve been named after one Gaius Julius Caesar because of my very distinguished ‘roman nose’.

Currently, I’m on the lookout for an empire to call my own. You don’t need to have a palace – maybe just a few couches for me to regally recline on. Honestly – I’m not very much like my namesake,  I’m just a big sook that loves soaking up attention and being close to people.

I’m good with other dogs as long as they don’t try to be too bossy. Kids shouldn’t be a problem either as long as they understand that sometimes if I’m busy doing my thing, I like to have my own space.
