Bob

G’day, Bob here. Yeah, I’m a pretty chilled out kinda guy and in fact, one of my favourite pastimes is roaching. I’m also not shy when it comes to asking for attention and ear rubs. There’s nothing better really! I’m eagerly looking for my furever home in the suburbs, with a family without other pets so that I can have your attention all to myself!

Victorious

Hi! I’m Victorious and if you adopt me, you’ll know be the one who’s a winner! I’m a sweet and outgoing boy and I’m certainly not shy about letting you know when I want a pat!! When I’m not asking for pats, I like to enjoy the simple pleasures in life –  snoozing, snacking and don’t forget the squeaky toys! While I don’t mind other dogs, I love being the centre of attention, so I’m happy being on my own for now. Just none of those small-fluffy things they call dogs, they cramp my style.

April is Adopt a Greyhound Month

Greyhound Rescue is again declaring April to be ‘Adopt-a-Greyhound Month’!

We are asking the public to consider adopting one of our 50 plus dogs now in need of a loving home, two of which have been at our kennels near Camden for over a year.

Janet Flann, Greyhound Rescue founder, said this year she is keen to find a home for Zephyr and Axel, the two long-timers at our kennels because boys are often overlooked as they’re a bit bigger than the girls.

“Our Zephyr had a rough start because he wasn’t socialised with humans, but now he loves our volunteers. He’s fine with other dogs, but needs a kind, patient household where someone’s home most of the time because he was left on his own too much in his prior life,” she said.

Unlike many greyhounds, Zephyr’s still quite active at five years, so he also needs a backyard for the occasional zoomie.

Peter Flann, Greyhound Rescue co-founder, said the second long-time resident, Axel, needs a quiet home without kids and it would be best to walk him at non-peak times as he’s not a fan of small dogs: “He’s slowing down so only needs walking every few days, but is a sweet-natured dog. We’re a no-kill rescue and have found from experience there’s the right home for each greyhound which comes to us,” he said.

We will be offering a discounted adoption fee during April Greyhound Rescue of just $250 instead of $350 per hound. With this important fee, we can pay for these beautiful dogs to have a full health check and be de-sexed, vaccinated and heartworm tested.

We are a registered charity and rely on donations, which are tax-deductible. If you’re unable to adopt, foster a dog, or physically volunteer, why not consider joining our Helping a Hound program, or purchasing some of our merchandise? Every cent helps us find more greyhounds loving homes all year round.

Hildy

Hi, I’m Hildy. Don’t let my grey muzzle fool you, I’m only 5 years old with plenty of love to give. I’m a happy and playful girl, and I love nothing more than being the centre of attention while I’m getting a good cuddle.I’m pretty good with all dogs – especially the smaller kind and confident larger doggos but I’m also happy to go solo and be the centre of your attention.

Wayne (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Wayne. I’m a confident and cuddly guy with plenty of love to give. I love being the centre of attention and hate missing out on the action, so I’m thinking if you have a family so there’s always someone to throw a ball around with me, that would make me one happy chappy!

Tutti

Hi there, I’m Tutti and I’m a bit fruity… as in I’ve more than filled the role of class clown here at Greyhound Rescue. I’m a goofy, playful, and affectionate boy with a real zest for life. I like toys and cuddles and treats and cuddles and zoomies… oh, did I mention cuddles? My enthusiasm may be a little bit much for little things like we little kids and small-fluffy doggos, but otherwise, I’m an all-round happy go lucky guy.

Omega (on trial)

Hi, I’m Omega! I’m a happy and confident girl with the biggest smile. I’d fit right in with a family that doesn’t have any of those small fluffy dogs to cramp my style (who needs them anyway!). I would suit a family without very young children, but if you have some teenagers I’d be a greyt companion. If you want to see my smile get even bigger, bring out the squeaky toys, I love them. I’m really looking forward to having a whole stash of toys I can call my own!

Crixus

Hi there, I’m Crixus. I’m a happy boy who will do just about anything for food! If you don’t already have anyone being a ‘taste tester’ at your place, I’d be perfect for that job! Because I haven’t been a pet before, I’m still learning what it all means – so I’m on the lookout for a quiet household (with plenty of snacks) and no little humans where I can be the centre of attention while I get a handle on everything. Oh, and if you’ve got a big back yard for me to stretch my legs and play with my toys, that would be perfect!!

Volunteers of the Month – January/February 2019

We’d like to introduce you to dynamic duo Kelly and Paul, some of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteers of the Month’ for the months of January and February.

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 on with the dogs or behind the scenes, every month we are introducing just one of them to you and acknowledging their amazing efforts. Kelly and Paul have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Kelly and Paul to learn more about why they love volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…
