Pet of the Week – Emelda

Hello there! I’m Emelda and I’m a 7-year-old gal looking for my forever home. Even though I’m 7, you wouldn’t know it! I’ve got a real zest for life. I’m a fun, playful kind of girl… I just love my toys and going for a zoomie or two. You’re only as old as you feel, right? And you’re sure to get a new lease on life yourself with me around! I’m still happy to have a bit of downtime too. Whilst I’m a pretty outgoing girl, I really love being the centre of attention… which means I’m not really keen on sharing the spotlight so I’m best as an only dog. Once you meet me though, you’ll learn why you wouldn’t want anyone else in your life but me!

April is Adopt a Greyhound Month

Greyhound Rescue is again declaring April to be ‘Adopt-a-Greyhound Month’!

We are asking the public to consider adopting one of our 50 plus dogs now in need of a loving home, two of which have been at our kennels near Camden for over a year.

Janet Flann, Greyhound Rescue founder, said this year she is keen to find a home for Zephyr and Axel, the two long-timers at our kennels because boys are often overlooked as they’re a bit bigger than the girls.

“Our Zephyr had a rough start because he wasn’t socialised with humans, but now he loves our volunteers. He’s fine with other dogs, but needs a kind, patient household where someone’s home most of the time because he was left on his own too much in his prior life,” she said.

Unlike many greyhounds, Zephyr’s still quite active at five years, so he also needs a backyard for the occasional zoomie.

Peter Flann, Greyhound Rescue co-founder, said the second long-time resident, Axel, needs a quiet home without kids and it would be best to walk him at non-peak times as he’s not a fan of small dogs: “He’s slowing down so only needs walking every few days, but is a sweet-natured dog. We’re a no-kill rescue and have found from experience there’s the right home for each greyhound which comes to us,” he said.

We will be offering a discounted adoption fee during April Greyhound Rescue of just $250 instead of $350 per hound. With this important fee, we can pay for these beautiful dogs to have a full health check and be de-sexed, vaccinated and heartworm tested.

We are a registered charity and rely on donations, which are tax-deductible. If you’re unable to adopt, foster a dog, or physically volunteer, why not consider joining our Helping a Hound program, or purchasing some of our merchandise? Every cent helps us find more greyhounds loving homes all year round.

Bob

G’day, Bob here. Yeah, I’m a pretty chilled out kinda guy and in fact, one of my favourite pastimes is roaching. I’m also not shy when it comes to asking for attention and ear rubs. There’s nothing better really! I’m eagerly looking for my furever home in the suburbs, with a family without other pets so that I can have your attention all to myself!

Virgil (on trial)

Hello! I’m Virgil! You can’t miss me – I’m the boy with the cute white spot on my snoot so you know I’ll turn heads wherever you take me. It definitely ups my cute factor too (not that I need that much help!!). Overall I’m a pretty relaxed and chilled out kind of guy who’s happy to stick close by people so I can seek out a good ear scratch or three. Being such a relaxed kind of guy, I’m pretty good with other dogs so I don’t think it will be an issue if you’ve got a furry friend for me!

Seven

Hi, I’m Seven. I’m an older girl looking for my dream home to spend my retirement years. My dream home is a nice quiet one where my new humans work part-time or are retired so I can receive maximum love and kindness – I’m certainly not shy about asking for a pat! As you can guess I’m a pretty sociable girl too, I like most dogs (big and small) and I’m even OK with tiny humans.

Victorious (on trial)

Hi! I’m Victorious and if you adopt me, you’ll know be the one who’s a winner! I’m a sweet and outgoing boy and I’m certainly not shy about letting you know when I want a pat!! When I’m not asking for pats, I like to enjoy the simple pleasures in life –  snoozing, snacking and don’t forget the squeaky toys! While I don’t mind other dogs, I love being the centre of attention, so I’m happy being on my own for now. Just none of those small-fluffy things they call dogs, they cramp my style.

Toesie

Hi there, I’m Toesie. At 12 years old, I’ve not known what it’s like to live in a home as I’ve spent all of my 12 years sleeping outside in kennels. I’d very much like to see out my twilight time with a comfy warm bed and know the love of a family.

I’m a bit unsure of what’s going on at the moment as this is all very new to me, so I’d love a quieter home (without kids or older kids only) so I don’t get too overwhelmed and a home where I have company more often than not. I might be okay with calm dogs for company, but I’d have to meet them first – I’m a bit frail you see.

If you can find it in your heart to give an old girl like me a loving home before the chill of winter sets in, I’d be forever grateful.

Hildy

Hi, I’m Hildy. Don’t let my grey muzzle fool you, I’m only 5 years old with plenty of love to give. I’m a happy and playful girl, and I love nothing more than being the centre of attention while I’m getting a good cuddle.I’m pretty good with all dogs – especially the smaller kind and confident larger doggos but I’m also happy to go solo and be the centre of your attention.

Kylie

Hi, I’m Kylie and I’m 7 years young and nothing short of fabulous! Even though I’m getting a few grey whiskers I am the sweetest hound you could ever meet, so please don’t pass me by! I love a good scratch and a cuddle and I’m really hoping you’ve got a nice soft spot on your couch to share with me so we can laze the days away. When it comes to other dogs, I can’t go around sharing my limelight with any doggy, so I think it’s best that I’m your only princess for now.  Besides, after you meet me, why would you want to give the royal treatment to anyone else?
