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.
