Daisy has found her forever home in Lara, VIC.  This is what her lovely new family have to say…..

This is a small note from our 3 boys about our new, wonderful and special dog , Daisy.
[our new addition to our family, forever! ]
       Daisy has found a forever home with us and is apart of the family now. we love it when she gets up and plays with us outside in the morning. It is funny when she runs around the yard playing with her squeaky toys and runs around the yard with our small dog scooter. She loves us to give her lots of cuddles and she is really gentle to us. She is a big sook and sleepy head. We love her!  from all the boys.

Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings, Belrose

Xmas shoppers and a beautiful, fine day kept us very busy from 8am until 3pm by which time we had sold out of everything. An exhausting day but very rewarding and it produced some much needed funds.

Thank you to all those who helped behind the stall and thank you to all those who bought our sausage sandwiches and drinks to help support Greyhound Rescue.

Dixie (Homed)


Dixie is a gentle, very people oriented dog. She’s quite an active girl for a greyhound – medium energy – and loves to play with dogs of all ages and sizes. Dixie is very responsive to learning new things, if she doesn’t know something she’s always keen to give it a try! She hasn’t been tested with cats but has been non reactive to other small pets. She loves small and large children and is very gentle with them. She adores playing fetch, especially with squeaky toys, and will play all day if she can! She walks beautifully on a lead and really enjoys going out, for either a relaxed stroll or a brisk jog. Her tail never stops wagging, at home and when she’s out meeting people and dogs. She is fully housetrained and equally at home lounging indoors as playing in the backyard.

Dixie is being fostered at Gunning near Canberra.

Dixie is:

*  4 years old(dob Feb 2006)

*  desexed

*  vaccinated

*  microchipped

*  heartworm tested

*  costs $300

Greyhounds on ‘Death Row’

Update on 24.12.10

Of the 15 original greyhounds there are now only 4 needing help. The immediate danger of these greyhounds being PTS is over but we still need foster carers for these 4. Please help if you can.

These greyhounds were taken by a Council and are currently impounded. With Xmas, both Pounds and kennels are overflowing and these greys are taking up much needed space.

PS  The greyhounds are situated in Sydney, but if interstate help is available please also contact us on 02 9453 0602 or 0412 562 104

If you are not in a position to help with fostering/adopting, you might consider a donation to help with the expenses the 15 are incurring.

Staying home for the holidays?

If you are staying home for the Xmas and New Year holidays, why not give a greyhound a special Xmas present and foster one over that period of time.

We always need foster carers but never more so than at this time of year. Can you imagine a greyhound spending Xmas Day in a kennel, on its own, while we are all enjoying the festive season? Why not share your love and happiness with a gentle, affectionate greyhound who will return that love many times over?

If you feel you can help, please contact Peter or Janet on 0412 562 104 in Sydney or Kayleigh on 0424 569 148 in Melbourne.

Thank you and have a good Xmas.

Thomas has found his forever home with Linda and Kerry.

Loveable Thomas can be a typically affectionate greyhound, he gets on very well with other dogs both large and small.

He also LOVES massages!!

Thomas is not cat friendly.

Arrange to meet Thomas today!

Red has found his forever home and is staying with his foster carers Moka and Nicola in East Melbourne. They had fallen in love with this big beautiful boy and did not want him to leave.

Red now spends his days going for lovely walks, snoozing and lapping up all the cuddles! He also has a new found talent for swimming, and can now be nicknamed “aqua dog” as he was fantastic at swimming in the doggie pool last week. Luckily they had a life jacket big enough for him! 

A wonderful success story for beautiful Red.
