Vale Nyx

Yesterday afternoon we made the sad decision to put one of our beloved Kennel Kids Nyx to rest after a diagnosis on incurable cancer. He was in pain and there wasn’t any treatment that could make him better.

Nyx had a magnificent 11 months with us and will be remembered for his special personality, absolute obsession with having a billion toys, and the joy he brought us.

He was surrounded with the love of four of his long-term carers from Greyhound Rescue and our wonderful vets Dr Yamuna and Dr Shay as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

We have set up a memorial fund for Nyx if you would like to help us honour his memory.

Adopting in the time of COVID-19

Working from home? We feel you. Think it might be a good opportunity to settle in a dog? We agree!

BUT! A dog is for life, not just for a shutdown. If you choose to adopt (or indeed foster!) a dog at this time then you can’t expect to give it back once we all return to work.

We are receiving an unprecedented number of applications which is AWESOME, however we are a tiny, volunteer-run charity. It’s going to take us some time to process these applications and we ask for your patience.

Please, make sure that you’re serious about bringing a dog into your life and making that commitment before you send in that form. Inviting a rescued greyhound into your family is a process that requires some adjustment from everyone.

DO APPLY:
* After you have done some research and believe that a greyhound is a good fit for your family. Our website is a great place to start!
* Everyone in your family is on board with the decision.
* You’re willing to make necessary adjustments to your home and lifestyle to accommodate a hound.
* You have landlord and strata approval (where required) in writing and can forward it with your application.
* You can care for your new furry family member once the crisis is over and everyone returns to work.

Please DO NOT apply:
* Regular working schedule means you won’t have time for a dog.
* You want to only have a dog while in self isolation/shutdown.
* You haven’t got permission from your strata/landlord. Please have that in writing before submitting your application to us.

Don’t decide on a whim – it won’t work out. If you are going to dedicate yourself to this journey please do fill in an application form, we’d love to hear from you.

Pet of the Week – Sirius

Hi there, I’m Sirius – Sirius Black! I’m a big boy, but don’t let my size fool you – I’m a true softie at heart and I love nothing more than resting my head on you to ask you for lots of gentle pats. It’s the greyhound version of a hug! As you can see from my pics, I also love a good scratch under my neck – oh boy, that is my favourite!

I’m a quiet and very polite boy, and you might have noticed one of my most adorable features is my overbite – the volunteers tell me it gives me such a cute smile with my little front teeth poking out! It certainly doesn’t stop me eating though, I just can’t get enough of food – if you need a taste tester at your house, I’m definitely happy to help with that!

Unfortunately I got attacked by an unfriendly dog while out in the world, and being the gentle soul that I am, I’m understandably a bit nervous of other dogs now. So I’m looking for a home where I’m the only dog, and preferably one with a secure yard where I can hang out and get some exercise if I don’t feel like going for a walk. It might be best if I have an experienced human who can work with me to build my confidence again over time.

When I’m not asking you for chin scratches, I’m a chilled out boy who loves having my own comfy space to curl up and snooze the day away. What do you say, could I be your new best friend?
