It’s tax time!

Mina here is busy boning up on Australian tax law to make sure she’s across things now the end of financial year is upon us.

You see, Greyhound Rescue could really use your help. We receive no government funding, and our vet bills, kennel bills, food bills and more just keep on mounting. Yes, it’s the same old story, but try as she might, Mina just can’t balance the books. There’s so much money going out and not enough coming in, which is exactly … er … where YOU come in.

An end-of-financial-year donation will not only help us (so, so much), it will actually help you, too. Donations at this time of year allow you to reduce your taxable income. Plus, it’s no secret that giving simply makes you feel good – studies show altruism has real mental and physical benefits (so you get the warm fuzzies by helping to keep our fuzzy hounds warm!)

So when you’re finalising things for the end of the tax year, please spare a thought for Mina’s fellow houndies, desperately waiting not only for her to get through these textbooks, but for their forever homes as well.

You can donate via bank transfer or PayPal (although please keep in mind PayPal charges fees so we don’t get all of your generosity.).





If you do transfer, please also email peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au to let us know you’ve donated.

Pet of the Week – Kid (on trial)

Hi, I’m Houndie The Kid, or just Kid for short. Now, I try not to be an outlaw, but I can tell you that I will steal your heart! With my striking brindle coat, how could you resist me! I’m a friendly, chilled, and curious guy that loves a good cuddle. Oh, I love to play too, so if you come with squeaky toys – I’ll be your friend forever! I’m also a rather social chap so if you have other large dogs or even tiny humans that would be just fine by me, just none of the small fluffy kind of dogs please – they cramp my style! Read More »

The Blaze Memorial Fund

This story doesn’t have a “happily ever after”… Beautiful Blaze – a happy, playful and cheeky boy passed away peacefully this weekend in the arms of our Kennel Manager and GR founder.

He never knew the comfort of a home, nor found his forever home, but he was so loved by our dedicated team of volunteers. He knew human kindness and spent the last of his days safe and surrounded with love thanks to our team. When Blaze wasn’t acting like his usual bouncy self, an MRI revealed a large and inoperable spinal tumour. The kindest thing to do was to let him pass the Rainbow Bridge and stop his suffering.

Blaze never got his fairytale ending, which is heartbreaking. Our volunteers and supporters want nothing more than to find loving homes for all of our hounds and are devastated that beautiful Blaze will never get to find his forever home.

We would like to make a memorial tribute to Blaze, to remind us all to live life to the fullest like Blaze did. Additionally, we have to cover nearly $7000 in bills from Blaze’s treatment. With extra funds, we would like to get some new enrichment toys for all of our Hounds who are left behind, in memory of Blaze, who loved nothing more than  a new toy to play with.

Annie (Greenhound – on trial)

Hi there, I’m Annie. I’m a rather special hound – you see, I’m already a Greenhound which means no muzzles for me! Unfortunately, my owner couldn’t keep me anymore so that’s how I found myself at Greyhound Rescue HQ. I’ve been in a home for the past few years, so I’m already an expert on how to be a pet. This means I’m already expert in all things domestic – like being toilet trained, walkies and even hanging out with tiny humans, I just take it all in my stride. Besides learning to be a good housemate, I’ve really been practising my ‘woe face’ so you won’t be able to resist my charms! I’m a bit confused by what’s going on at the moment, so it’s probably best that I’m the centre of your attention while I get re-settled.

Sid (on trial)

Hi, I’m Sid and I’m a big loveable goofball looking for my forever couch! I love spending time with the volunteers playing with toys, quick zoomies, long naps, and big cuddles. I’m a carefree kind of guy and I promise I’ll be a good boy, I’ll give you all the love in the world and then some more…we can take walks in the park together, maybe go for a run, and I heard watching movies is just the thing to do on a couch. I’m best as an only dog, for now, that’s just because I want to keep all of the attention for me!

Jarrah and Lauren (bonded pair)

Hi, we’re Jarrah and Lauren! What’s better than one greyhound you ask? Well, two of course! We’re sisters and have spent our lives together and are totally BFFs, so we can’t bear to be apart. We’re both young with PLENTY of personality as well as plenty of love to give. While we both love to play, we’re also super sweet and very affectionate – we will lap up any cuddles you have to give! We’re good with other dogs and good with kids, but best that they’re a little older just because we’re so playful!

Boo (on trial)

Hi, I’m Boo. Please don’t look past me because I’m heading towards my senior years, I promise you – I’m quite the catch. Besides, I don’t look a day over six! I’m a super sweet and gentle girl, I just love to chill out and lap up some attention – that doesn’t mean I don’t have a cheeky side, I still love to play! I walk well on lead and enjoy getting out and about on walks. Because I’ve spent some time in a home, I’m already toilet trained and have a pretty good handle on this pet life. When it comes to doggie company, I have to say, I do prefer to hang out with larger canine pals. With my gentle, quiet nature I think I’d make the perfect couch companion to snuggle up with on these cold winter nights.

Iggy (homed)

Hi, I’m Iggy – and with my brindle coat, I’m so fancy! Well… not so fancy that I wouldn’t be happy to settle for a comfy bed (or couch!), lots of walks, some toys and LOADS of affection. But if you want to throw in a few designer coats and collars, I won’t complain! Really, I’m just a big softie and all-around sweetheart with a gentle nature… oh, I’m also very much into cuddles. I’m good with tiny humans and other dogs, I think they are greyt fun and I would do just fine with some of those in my new family.

Matty

Hi, I’m Matty and I come with my ears already packed up and ready to go! I’m a handsome, affectionate guy looking for my forever home… or I should say LISTENING for my forever home – nobody has ears quite like mine! I’ve had a bit of a rough start in life, but I’m more than making up for it now at GR HQ… I’m absolutely lapping up all of this new attention! I can be a bit shy with new things at first, but that’s because I’m just starting to learn about this big wide world.

Dixon (on trial)

Hey there, I’m Dixon. I’m a sociable, chilled out kind of guy looking for my ‘furever’ home. With my striking coat, it looks like I’m trying to channel my inner German Shepherd, but I can assure you that I’m all greyhound. My cool, calm temperament means that I’m suited to loads of family situations… kids of any age, other dogs (big and small) and even apartments are no problem for me!
