Sydney’s best dog beaches you simply have to visit!

Dog-friendly beaches are a summertime paradise for pooches, and best of all they’re more common than you think!

Sure, many of Sydney’s most iconic beaches don’t allow pups, but you’ll find several harbour beaches, bays and lagoons where your dog can get his fur salty.

Once your pooch has dog-paddled, stick-collected and butt-sniffed to his heart’s content, why not let him feel the sand between his paws on a short stroll to dry off?

Volunteer of the Month – October

We’d like to introduce you to Anne, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of  October.

Our volunteers are the very backbone of what we do at GR. Without them, we could not possibly save and rehome as many greyhounds as we do. While every single one of our volunteers is important no matter how much they do whether hands on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Anne to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Lush Cosmetics – Charity Pot Launch

Greyhound Rescue would like to say a big thank you to Lush Cosmetics for its support of our work and launching the Greyhound Rescue Charity Pot featuring our very own super hound Bevan. Every purchase of the Charity Pot funds charities like ours and helps us keep saving greyhounds’ lives.

The launch was a wonderfully colourful event with lots of great vibes, happy hounds and people enjoying the sunshine and celebrations at Lush’s Sydney manufacturing facility. Many thanks to Carol for driving from Newcastle to take the photos and support the event, Tim with Donny and Sugar, and Tara for letting us include Lucy and Pigeon.

Thank You Pymble Ladies College

Greyhound Rescue is very grateful to the year 10 girls from Pymble Ladies College, their teachers and parents for spending time at our shelter as part of their service learning week and helping us with all manner of tasks.

Here is some of what they achieved.

  • Cleaned and tidied our two dog trailers to get them ready for their next home via freecycle.org
  • Washed every dog using our hydrobath. A big thank you to Jim’s Dog Wash franchisee Theresa McKenzie for also volunteering her services and making the dogs even shinier.
  • Filled holes, cut thistles, walked dogs, cuddled dogs. Played ball with them and gave them their first real run in the sunshine since they were rescued.
  • Cleaned the blanket room and tidied the office helped by Karen Gaddis.
  • Washed the greyhound rescue van and cleaned it inside.
  • Created an inventory of all the poles and wires from our dismantled dog runs ready for our relocation once we find somewhere to go.
Thank you ladies, and we hope to see you again soon!
