Pet of the Week – Falcon

Hi there, I’m Falcon and I’m just a youngin’ at 3 years old. While I do love a good romp around and a zoomie or two, I’m happy with some chill time as well so I’d be down with either a home with a yard or a unit (as long as it has a comfy couch, right?). I’m a happy boy that’s always looking forward to making new friends of either the 2 or 4-legged variety! Just not too many 2-legged ones at once because crowds aren’t my jam and I get a bit shy, so I don’t think I’m quite ready to be a cafe doggo just yet. That’s OK though, it means I get to spend lots more time with you and I think that idea is just greyt!

It’s tax time… boost your refund and help a hound!

End of Financial Year Greyhound Rescue Donations

Tina here has been busy reviewing the figures now that the end of financial year is almost here, and she thinks Greyhound Rescue could really use your help.

Here at Greyhound Rescue, we receive no official funding, and our vet bills, kennel bills, food bills and more just keep on mounting. Yes, we know you’ve heard this before, but try as she might, Tina just can’t balance the books. There’s so much money going out and not enough coming in, which is exactly 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 – by giving a small donation,  you get warm fuzzy feelings 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 Tina’s fellow houndies, who haven’t been as lucky as her and are waiting patiently for their forever homes. 

The easiest way for you to help is via bank transfer or PayPal.





Account Name:  Greyhound Rescue Inc
BSB: 012 289
Account No: 524 792 379
Reference: EOFY Donation

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

The hounds thank you!

No grey area: NSW government must fund dogs charity – Peter FitzSimons

Image credit: Simon Bennett

Read the article on SMH »

You and me, babe. You’ll recall we got into the whole greyhound thing back in 2015 after the mighty Four Corners exposé of the horrors of live-baiting, and we not only supported the Baird government banning it, but were loudly appalled a couple of years ago when they caved in after all. But then our attention shifted, didn’t it? We went on to other things, and while we were out some of the industry went back to their old ways.

Barney

Hi! I’m Barney and I’m a pretty cool dude and all-round loveable goofball. When I’m not seeking out pats, my favourite thing is my toys – especially chasing balls. So when I arrive at your place, make sure you’re well stocked so we can play together! My enthusiasm for life might be a little bit much for toddlers and I’m definitely WAY too enthusiastic about small and fluffy creatures, so probably best there’s none of those in my new home but I’m happy to have another greyhound friend for company and to chase balls with!

Halo

Hello! I’m Halo (because I’m an angel, obviously!). I’m currently living it up in foster learning the many ways in which a greyhound can enjoy a couch. I’m a sweet girl who’s definitely not backwards when it comes to asking for a pat – I mean, who doesn’t love a good ear scratch? I’m also loving all of this delicious food… I might love it a bit much and sometimes I’m not very keen on sharing, but I’m working real hard on my manners! Hanging out with my foster bro is fun too – so I wouldn’t mind it one bit if you had another brother for me!

Prinny

Hi, I’m Prinny. I’m an older girl who’s just turned 9 and I’m really looking forward to finding a furever home of my very own! You see, I’m quite timid and will need an extra special family who will take the time to gently and patiently bring me out of my shell.  This big wide world is so new to me so I can be a little shy to begin with. I like to take my time to get used to new situations and people, but once I get to know you I’m really very sweet. I don’t mind other dogs, but I think I’d do best on my own while I learn how to be a ‘pet’ in your happy home. I’m OK with that though, if you are – it means more affection for me!

Summer

Hi, I’m Summer, nice to meet you! With my sunny disposition, I’ve got a real zest for life and I love nothing more than a good zoomie and chasing my soccer ball around (I’ll even bring it back for you!!). This means I’d prefer a house with a back yard so I can stretch my legs and keep up my athletic figure. When I’m all zoomed out though, I’m happy to chill out on the couch with you and happily take whatever affection comes my way. As I’ve been in homes before, I’m already across this whole pet business – I come when I’m called and I’m toilet trained! Now, I’m a bit of a little bossy paws but don’t hold that against me, I’m a girl that knows what she wants… what I don’t want is a home with small fluffy dogs or cats – they are just not my thing but I’ll happily live with another greyhound if you have a greyt friend for me!

Daffodil

Hi there, I’m Daffodil and I’m 9 years young!  I think if they were giving out prizes for the best ‘woe face’, I’d win, paws down! Even though I’m heading towards my senior years please don’t pass me by, as I still have plenty of love to give. I’m a sweet girl with a lovely quiet nature, but I can be a wee little bit shy sometimes so maybe you’ve got a doggie friend for me to help be my security blanket?  I’m not fussed if they’re big or small, I get along with everyone!

Trixie

Hi, I’m Trixie and I’m a toy-aholic. I’m a fun-loving girl who’s been lucky enough to discover my passion in life… and no surprises, it’s TOYS! I’m really looking forward to having a whole stash of them I can call my own (not so subtle hint).  I think I’d fit right in with a family that doesn’t have any of those small fluffy dogs to cramp my style (who needs them anyway!). So, if you’re looking for a fun and affectionate girl to be the centre of your attention, I might be your girl!

Winter

Hello there! They call me Winter, I’m not sure why though – I’m a little ray of sunshine! I’m an outgoing and happy guy with a big smile and an even bigger heart. I’m sweet natured and definitely not shy about asking for a pat. I also love to play so I just know you will fall in love with me. I’m a young boy at only two years old so I have lots of love and life to give!

Mozart (on trial)

Hello there! I’m Mozart! Now, I might not be able to write you a symphony (though I have been known to be a bit musical on occasion), but I’ve got plenty of other skills… did you know I can sit? That’s pretty special for a greyhound. I also play fetch too and love bringing the toy back so we can start the games again. When I’m not showing off my special skills, I like to take a break to enjoy a good ear scratch or two. I’m also good with other large dogs, but they can’t be too small though – I’m still learning my manners and those small fluffy ones look like toys to me!
