Vet bills…can anyone help please?

We have been hit recently with some very heavy vet bills of over $2000 and this is partly due to the fact that we do not discriminate in the greyhounds that we take on.

Amy, 10 years old. Teeth and desexing.

Harry, only young but no testicles descended. Desexing.

Solo, 5 years old. Teeth and burst ear drums.

Etc etc

If anyone can help with these bills, we would be very grateful. Donations can receive a tax deductible receipt and can be made straight to our bank account, ‘Greyhound Rescue Inc’, BSB 012289, account number 5247 92379 or via Paypal through the website.

Happy New Year

We wish everyone a Happy New Year, those who have adopted from us, those who have fostered for us, those who have helped us, those who have donated, everyone who has looked at our website or shown an interest in the beautiful greyhounds and those who are yet to be converted. We hope that 2011 will be a good year for you.

2010 was a good year for Greyhound Rescue, during which time we found homes for 46 unwanted greyhounds and helped numerous others. You can see some of their stories by going to the ‘Success Stories’ section on the website.

After a quiet spell we have had a number of greyhounds go on trial these last two weeks.

Billy has gone to Sarah and family, Toby and Thomas have gone to Linda and Kerry and Homer and Woody have gone to Jenny and family.

Also in the New year Amy is going to Brian and Jan and Puppy Sarah is joining the family who adopted Buddy.

We wish all these greyhounds and families good luck on their new venture together.

Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings, Belrose

Xmas shoppers and a beautiful, fine day kept us very busy from 8am until 3pm by which time we had sold out of everything. An exhausting day but very rewarding and it produced some much needed funds.

Thank you to all those who helped behind the stall and thank you to all those who bought our sausage sandwiches and drinks to help support Greyhound Rescue.

Dixie (Homed)


Dixie is a gentle, very people oriented dog. She’s quite an active girl for a greyhound – medium energy – and loves to play with dogs of all ages and sizes. Dixie is very responsive to learning new things, if she doesn’t know something she’s always keen to give it a try! She hasn’t been tested with cats but has been non reactive to other small pets. She loves small and large children and is very gentle with them. She adores playing fetch, especially with squeaky toys, and will play all day if she can! She walks beautifully on a lead and really enjoys going out, for either a relaxed stroll or a brisk jog. Her tail never stops wagging, at home and when she’s out meeting people and dogs. She is fully housetrained and equally at home lounging indoors as playing in the backyard.

Dixie is being fostered at Gunning near Canberra.

Dixie is:

*  4 years old(dob Feb 2006)

*  desexed

*  vaccinated

*  microchipped

*  heartworm tested

*  costs $300

Greyhounds on ‘Death Row’

Update on 24.12.10

Of the 15 original greyhounds there are now only 4 needing help. The immediate danger of these greyhounds being PTS is over but we still need foster carers for these 4. Please help if you can.

These greyhounds were taken by a Council and are currently impounded. With Xmas, both Pounds and kennels are overflowing and these greys are taking up much needed space.

PS  The greyhounds are situated in Sydney, but if interstate help is available please also contact us on 02 9453 0602 or 0412 562 104

If you are not in a position to help with fostering/adopting, you might consider a donation to help with the expenses the 15 are incurring.
