Homings

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 HAS FOUND  HER FOREVER HOME

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.

Staying home for the holidays?

If you are staying home for the Xmas and New Year holidays, why not give a greyhound a special Xmas present and foster one over that period of time.

We always need foster carers but never more so than at this time of year. Can you imagine a greyhound spending Xmas Day in a kennel, on its own, while we are all enjoying the festive season? Why not share your love and happiness with a gentle, affectionate greyhound who will return that love many times over?

If you feel you can help, please contact Peter or Janet on 0412 562 104 in Sydney or Kayleigh on 0424 569 148 in Melbourne.

Thank you and have a good Xmas.

Good news, bad news and DESPERATE NEWS

The good news is that to date this year we have found homes for 40 greyhounds which has far exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled with this achievement.

The bad news is that we still have about 40 greyhounds looking for homes and DESPERATELY NEED MORE FOSTER CARERS to get greyhounds out of kennels and into homes, especially the newly arrived 8 month old pups, Betty and Smokey, who need close and personal attention.

The DESPERATE NEWS is that we are DESPERATELY SHORT OF FINANCE which is needed to get the greyhounds desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, etc, kennelled, fed, transported, etc. etc. Without more finance WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAVE THE GREYHOUNDS which otherwise would not have a life after racing. We are a full charity and donations can receive a tax deductible receipt. Can you help us now please by going to the ‘How you can help’ section at the top  and donating via Paypal or by paying straight into our bank account ‘Greyhound Rescue Inc’, BSB 012289, Account no. 5247 92379

We would be very grateful for your support, no matter how large or small the donation. Thank you for your help.

Leichardt Stall and Next Stall

On Sunday 10th October we did a stall at the Leichardt Council’s ‘Dog Day Out’, and the photos show a general gathering plus Amy having ‘time out’ from the hard work of being patted by everyone!! The day was very successful with a number of helpers and greyhound adopters turning up. The raffle raised some much needed funds and the main part of the raffle was a Windows 7 software package donated by Microsoft. Ironically the raffle was won by Karen Convy who adopted Holly, one of our beautiful greyhounds, only a few months ago. Greyhound Rescue also took part in a session for the public, where we could explain the common misunderstandings about greyhounds and what great pets they make.

Thank you to all those who turned up to make the day a successful one.

The next stall is this Sunday, 24thOctober, when Mosman Council are having their ‘Pets Day Out’ at the ‘Alan Border Oval’, The Crescent, Mosman from 10am to 3pm. Come and meet the greyhounds. Unfortunately this event was cancelled due to bad weather.

We will also be doing a Sausage Sizzle at Petbarn, Brookvale on Saturday 23rd October from 10am to 3pm.
