Happy New Year from Greyhound Rescue!

2019 was a big year for Greyhound Rescue!

We found loving homes for 203 greyhounds, grew our foster care program, welcomed many wonderful new volunteers, expanded our enrichment and rehabilitation program, and celebrated our tenth birthday with an incredible black tie fundraiser.

We also saw the retirement of Greyhound Rescue’s founders, Peter and Janet Flann, who dedicated their lives to the cause, making many personal sacrifices along the way. They built Greyhound Rescue from nothing and worked tirelessly for the greys to build an amazing team that will take Greyhound Rescue into the next decade.

Greyhound Rescue is going from strength to strength and the best is yet to come.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the journey, bring on 2020!

Pet of the Week – Gracie

Hi, I’m Gracie! I’m a bit of an all-round sweetheart with such a gentle nature. I came to Greyhound Rescue with a broken leg, but with plenty of love and care I’m well along the path to recovery and ready for a home of my own. What does this mean for my forever family? This means I’m classed as a sanctuary dog and Greyhound Rescue will cover certain vet expenses for ongoing issues with my leg for the rest of my life.

Because I’m such a softie, I get along well with everyone really, whether they’re dogs or people, big or small! All I ask is a nice soft bed and a family who will give me plenty of love and pats, and I’ll be oh so happy.

Orion

Hi there, I’m Orion! I’m a big loveable goofball who is sure to keep you entertained with my playful and cheeky ways. I love walks and adventures and just about everything, really – so I can’t wait to get out there and explore the world!

I get along great with other dogs, but I can get a bit over-excited about the smaller kind, so I think it’s best my new home doesn’t have any of those. Apart from that, I’m happy to have a dog buddy in my new home! I would love to have a yard to play in too, although I might not be able to resist rolling in any mud patches I come across – it’s just one of my cheeky charms!

Spritz

Hi there, I’m Spritz! With my sweet and bubbly personality, I’m sure to add some refreshment to your life. I’m a happy boy who enjoys being active, so if you’re looking for a buddy to go on some adventure walks, that sounds greyt to me! I came to Greyhound Rescue in need of a bit of TLC, and I’m still getting my coat looking all nice and shiny, so I’d love a home where I can get all the pampering I need to get back to my best self.

I get along great with humans of all sizes, so I’m happy to share my home with some kids. I love leaning on people to ask for pats – even better if they can give me some ear scratches, they’re my favourite!

I’m still working on my manners around small dogs so I don’t think I’d like to share my home with one of them, please. I’d be quite happy to live in an apartment or small house though!

Massimo

Ciao, mi chiamo Massimo! I’m a friendly and oh so handsome boy who just loves hanging around with humans. My favourite things are playtime, asking for pats, going for walks… anything that we can do together really! Oh, and I love food too – I guess you could say I’m pretty easy to please!

I get quite excited about greeting people and I can be a bit bouncy, so it’s best my new home doesn’t have any smaller kids in it – my enthusiasm for life might be a bit much for them. I’ve met some medium sized dogs and I did okay with them, but I think I’d do best as a solo hound for now. I think my ideal home would be one where I’m not on my own for too many hours, if that’s okay – I just love company too much for that!

Faker

Hi there, I’m Faker – aka Faker the heart breaker! I’m a handsome dude who is definitely not shy about asking for some attention – in fact I just love seeking out all the pats I can get. Despite my name, I am definitely the real deal, and with my winning personality I’m sure you won’t be able to resist me once we meet. I’m looking for some doting human subjects who are ready to cater to my every need – I don’t ask too much though, just a comfy bed, some yummy food and all the pats a hound could ask for! I don’t like sharing the spotlight too much so I think I’d do best as an only dog – I’m a bit of a scaredy cat about those smaller dogs anyway!

Bentayga

Hi there, I’m Bentayga, or you can call me Benny for short! I’m a sweet and handsome boy who gets along well with dogs of all sizes. I am a bit of a timid boy though, and things like loud noises or too many people can make me quite nervous. Because of that, I’m looking for some kind humans who will let me take things at my own pace and give me the gentle encouragement I need to come out of my shell. I prefer the quiet life, so no inner city living for me, please. Once I get to know you, I’m sure we’ll be great friends – I just need some time to learn about pet life and all the new things that come along with it.

Rex

Hi there, I’m Rex. Some call me the Zoolander of the greyhound world because as you might have noticed, I’m really really ridiculously good looking! Don’t worry though, I don’t let it go to my head. I’m a big boy but despite my size, I’m quite the gentle giant and I just love coming up to you to ask for some pats. I can get a bit bouncy sometimes when I’m excited, so I think it’s best I don’t go to a home with any smaller kids so I don’t bowl them over with my love. I don’t mind socialising with other greyhounds but I’m not much of a fan of those small dogs, and for now while I’m learning how to be a pet, I think I’d do best in a home where I’m the only dog. Being the centre of attention sounds pretty good to me anyway!

Owen (on trial)

I’m Owen, the happiest boy you will ever meet! I’m just bursting with so much enthusiasm for life and I like to channel it all through my tail, so I’ve got the waggiest tail around. I’m a super playful boy too, so if you’ve got some time to play with me, that would be swell! I get along great with greyhounds and with the smaller doggies too, so I’m happy to have a doggie playmate in my new home!

Whiskey

Hi there, I’m Whiskey, and if you’re thinking of adopting a greyhound, I’m all ears! Get it? I think my ears are my best feature – you can bet I’ll never miss the sound of a snack packet being opened!

I’m a bouncy boy with plenty of enthusiasm for life and especially for toys – the squeakier, the better! I hope my forever home has plenty of squeaky toys and some people who enjoy playing with me – that will make me so happy! I get along with dogs of all sizes too, so I’m happy to share my home with a doggie playmate. Until then, I’m chilling out in foster care and enjoying learning all about the joys of pet life – it’s the best!

Pedro

Ola, I’m Pedro! I’m a friendly boy who definitely has two ears, although the second one is often missing in action… I guess you might call that my signature look!

I love to hang out with humans and other doggies – they’re all future friends, if you ask me! I’ve been very gentle with the kids that I’ve met so far, so I’d be happy to go to a home with some smaller humans. I get along well with other dogs too, big and small, so if you have any of them that’s fine by me too! I’m just an overall chilled out guy really, so I’m happy to go on some adventures or just hang out at home and take it easy… as long as we can do it together, then it sounds greyt to me!
