Colouring Competition

Thanks to all the children who entered our Greyhound Rescue Name a Dog colouring in competition. All the pictures were so good, it was hard to pick out a single winner. So the most impressive and imaginative three of the 0 to 5 years, and 6 to 10 age groups have been selected to display on our website. These are their art-works. Also, the talented children will receive a certificate with a picture of the greyhound they have named. However, as many greyhounds come to us with names, it may take a little time to find a special greyhound that suits your special name. So please be patient.

Hold the mouse over the picture to see the name and age of the child who coloured it in.

Big Dog day Out

Warringah Council’s ‘Big Dog Day Out 2010’ was a great success and many thanks to Mike, Fiona and girls who put in a lot of hard work to make sure of it. Holly also helped with preparation and on the day and thanks to her as well. It was good to see a number of adopted families and their greyhounds come along, some old stagers by now but also some newly added to the ranks.

The colouring competition was a great favourite with the children and the results of the competition will be published very shortly on the website.

!st prize in the Raffle was donated by Petbiz at Belrose. Many thanks to them for 15kg of Eukanuba, a box of treats and a collar and lead to match, valued at approx $150. This prize was won by Gordon Roberts of Turramurra. 2nd prize was won by Becky McManus of Seaforth.

Solo has fallen in love!!

Solo and Sarah have been with us for a few weeks now and as time goes by they are playing together more and more each day. In the photo they are sharing a lounge together and if you look on you will see a video, under Sarah’s name, of the pair of them playing like puppies!!

They really do have something special between them and it would be marvellous if they could find a home together.

They call it ‘Puppylove’!!

These two greyhounds certainly have a great affinity for one another, indicating further that they not only get on well with humans but also each other.

Victorian Greyhounds do well

Our new representative in Victoria, Kayleigh, is working wonders down there. Of the 7 greyhounds that we have sent down so far, Shawee has already been adopted into a new home with Ruth and Tony, Butch has gone on a two week trial with another family and the others are all settled into excellent foster homes.


So congratulations to Ruth and Tony for adopting our first Victorian greyhound and particular thanks to Kayleigh for the hard work and effort she is putting in on behalf of Greyhound Rescue in Victoria. We and the greyhounds very much appreciate your dedication to the task of finding homes for these beautiful animals.

Curly goes to Curl Curl!!!

He came with the name of Joe because the ladies at the Pound needed a name to put on his papers, but he soon became known as Curly because of his most unusual tail.

And to make the story even more unusual, on Monday of this week Curly went to new home and guess where? Curl Curl of course on Sydney’s Northern Beaches!!!

Good luck to Curly, who has been joined in his new home by girl friend, the beautiful Maggie the Smooch

Oldies find homes

p1130514Stacey came with 4 of her offspring. We found a home for Princess who is 9 years old, even before she went on the website and this week Baby, 8 years old, also found a home. It is wonderful that there are kind people out there who are willing to take on the not so young greyhounds and give them a comfortable and loving home in their later years.

Our main priority now is to find a home for Stacey,  and daughter April, so that Stacey’s remaining days are not spent in kennels. She deserves better than that. Have a look at Stacey in the ‘Dogs Available’ section and if you feel you have a home to offer this grand old lady, then please contact us as soon as possible.
