April is ‘Adopt-a-Greyhound Month’

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

Nat Panzarino, Greyhound Rescue president, said this year everyone is keen to find a home for Bjorn and Sasha.

These two long term houndies have been with GR since 2018. Both are delightful three-year olds.

Bjorn

“Bjorn, a gorgeous blue boy arrived in early March 2018. He needs a home in a quiet neighbourhood with a yard where he can stretch his legs. He’s happy to be home alone during the day and is being fostered with another greyhound. It’s really heart-warming to read in his online profile what his foster carers say about how he’s blossomed,” said Nat.

Sasha

Sasha had a broken leg and has been doing physio exercises with GR’s kennel manager as part of her rehabilitation: “While Sasha doesn’t need further leg care, she should have no off-lead runs in large spaces for a few more months and even after this period, should not be ‘zooming’ too often.”

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 Help a Hound program, or purchasing some of our merchandise?

Please keep in mind that when you decide to ask us about adopting one of our greyhounds, you can do so via its online profile. Here’s what that looks like in Sasha’s profile –

If you end up adopting her, contacting us this way means you get a free bag of food from SavourLife and we get a donation! Every cent helps us find more greyhounds loving homes all year round.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to reward our other food supplier Raw and Fresh for supporting us, you can use this affiliate link to make purchases with the code GR10.

With more people at home due to COVID-19, Greyhound Rescue is receiving a larger number of foster and adoption applications than usual, but we’re encouraging people to think through their decision carefully before applying.

“It’s great to get this support, but applicants should keep in mind that adoption’s for life. Also, when the COVID-19 pandemic is over, we won’t be able to suddenly take in all the dogs that have been put in to foster placements. So, if you’re keen to be a foster carer, be aware that you may still have the dog when the time comes for you to return to work,” said Nat.
