Fundraiser for young Zacharie

Adopt me :)

Please donate & share!

We are pleased to say we have covered our costs now for Zacharie and we thank each and every one of you that has donated to his surgery! He is on the mend and should be going well on all four pins in no time!

Early this April, we saved a sweet boy named Zacharie, who was surrendered because of an ‘injury’ that never healed properly. That ‘injury’, we had seen to and we found out that 3 of the 4 bones in his foot were broken and had not mended correctly. The weight of the paw causing him to hunch. A surgical option was presented by the wonderful vets at Queanbeyan Vet Hospital in ACT. The surgical specialists at Gunghalin Vet Hospital have offered a generous discount and their surgical specialists will mend his paw next month.

Even with these generous discounts, we have to pay in excess of $2000 so we need your help! If you can spare anything, we would be so grateful as you know we get no funding from the government that supports greyhound racing and the bills just keep on coming. Greyhound Rescue is not picky, and we strive to save all greyhounds that come our way no matter what disability they come with.

If you think you can help us, we would be so “greytful” and so would Zach!

A big thank you to one of our foster carers Kerrie, who’s wonderful parents have offered to care for him throughout the procedure and recovery. So much good effort and good will to help young sweet Zacharie!

Before the walk:

SAVE THE DATE! Please gather at Ash Paddock to drop off picnic, bags, have a coffee etc

During the walk:

Humans and dogs of all ages and sizes are welcome. We are allowed 4 leashed dogs per person on The Grand Drive and unfortunately greyhounds must be muzzled as this is not an official event. Greenhounds are the exception.

After the walk:

You are all invited to have a picnic social. Some refreshments and snacks will be provided but we would love if you were able to bring a dish to share.

For those that are unable to physically walk The Grand Drive but still want to take part at the event, feel free to come along and sit at the picnic area to support the others.

Volunteers are also welcome!
