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

The new Holly


Holly has found her forever home with Karen in Newtown.

Holly is an extremely affectionate greyhound who just loves to be with you and she has a glossy black coat with a hint of dark brown in it. She gets on well with both large and small dogs and on top of that she is also CAT FRIENDLY. Holly walks well on a lead and papers are available from her ‘racing’ days. Ann wrote of Holly ‘I am one of the foster mums for Holly. Holly joined our family of two Greys and nine indoor cats a few months ago. What an affectionate girl Holly is and very considerate/respectful towards her feline cousins. Holly has been in the wrong place at the wrong time (easily done with cats) and has been scratched a few time just as a reminder that the felines rule this household. Without even blinking an eyelid Holly removed herself from the area (yelping) and licked her wounds (minor) to the lounge. We have been introducing Holly to new experiences such as going to the beach, cafes etc. Whilst a little unsure at first of these new experiences, as long as she is shown love and lots of touching she embraces the experiences. What a water girl she is, well at home in the clam shell shallow bath that is. Holly is a very clean dog as she is often seen washing her paws in the clam shell water. Holly would be well suited to a home where she has the company of another dog. Also Holly just loves being around humans. Whoever gets to be Holly’s forever parent(s) will be very lucky indeed. Between you and me she is more affectionate then my two Greys.’

Holly is:

6 years old (dob Nov 2003)




heartworm tested
