Covered – Northern beaches resident travels to Camden for ‘hound love’

Covered Magazine (with an audience and followers across  Sydney’s northern beaches and north shore) ran a story about GR kennel volunteer Robyn Rice on its website and social media feeds.

Northern Beaches resident Robyn Rice travels to Camden to volunteer with rescue greyhounds and says it’s worth it for ‘hound love’.

She does the Wednesday morning or afternoon shift every week at the Greyhound Rescue (GR) kennels near Camden.

“Morning shifts in summer are 8-11am, while the afternoons are 3-6pm in summer, seven days a week,” said Robyn, who started with GR two years ago.

“Going there is one of the awesome parts of my week. I find it so heartwarming, inspiring and feel like it is an honour to have a connection with and serve the hounds with a ‘greyt’ bunch of vollies.”

Robyn loves dogs and stumbled upon Greyhound Rescue when she was looking for a volunteer opportunity.

“I met some greyhounds at the Newtown Festival and was so amazed at the chilled and evolved vibe of the greys. I fell in love with them instantly and wanted to help them live their best lives,” said Robyn.

 She encourages other beach-side residents to consider volunteering.

“Just do it, you’ll love it,” said Robyn.

She said greyhounds are very special.

“They’re advanced and evolved souls that will grab hold of your heart every time. Once you fall in love with a grey and adopt it takes so much self-control not to adopt five or more,” Robyn said.

“You will fall in love with them all!”

Robyn said it’s incredible to watch the hounds flourish.

“You get to see them develop as they are nurtured at Greyhound Rescue in preparation for finding their forever homes,” she said.

She said people who’re interested can watch a short video about the work and apply to volunteer here –
