Riley

Hi, I’m Riley! I’m a happy boy who just can’t wait to be your friend! I absolutely LOVE playtime – in fact, I might like it a bit too much and I’m still learning how to share my toys with others, but I’m working hard on learning my manners! While I learn all about pet life, I think I’d do best in a home where I’m the only dog – being the centre of attention sounds good to me anyway!

Moonie (on trial)

Hi, I’m Moonie. I’m a timid girl and the big wide world can still be a bit overwhelming for me. Because of that, I’m looking for a quiet home in the suburbs with some nice humans who will give me time and space to get used to pet life at my own pace. If you have a calm and confident dog who can help me learn how to dog then that would be fine by me – I don’t mind if they’re big or small!

Hi, I’m Drew! I’m a quiet but friendly boy who is coming out of my shell more and more each day now that I’m at Greyhound Rescue.

I’m quite happy to hang out with other dogs too so if you have any of them, maybe we can be friends!

Hope (puppy)

Hi there, I’m Hope! I’m still a puppy which means I’m playful, inquisitive and love to make new friends. In fact, I love hanging out with all breeds of dogs and I don’t mind cats either!

When I was just a young pup, I had an injury to my back legs, and the dogtors are still figuring out exactly what that will mean for me.* Because of that, I’m looking for a patient and compassionate human (or humans!) who can take me to the appointments that I need. Like all puppies, I love to spend time with my people so it’s best if you’re not a full time worker.

Despite my injury, I’m still a happy girl who loves to play, run around and be a normal puppy, so a foster home with a backyard is a must!

*Hope was surrendered to Greyhound Rescue after a paralysis injury to her back legs as a young pup. We do not yet know the extent of her injury, but we are conducting further investigations while Hope is in foster care.

Amarin (on trial)

I’m Amarin! I’m a sweet girl who can be a little shy when we first meet, but once I get to know you I’m sure we will be good friends! I like hanging out with other greyhounds so I think I’d be happy for my forever home to have a greyhound pal for me to play with. I’m still learning my leash manners around other types of dogs, but I’ve met some medium sized ones and I think I’d be okay with them too!

I would prefer a more leisurely life as I have had a broken hock in my previous life which didn’t heal very well. It can get sore if I over exercise, or sometimes when it’s cold – so I would sure love a nice warm home of my own! Sometimes I may need some pain relief and arthritic supplements too.

Deanie

Hi, I’m Deanie. I was a bit fearful of everything when I first came to Greyhound Rescue, but with the love and care of all the vollies I’m slowly learning about the big wide world and building my confidence. I’m still a timid girl though, so I’m looking for a very special home where my people can give me plenty of space and let me take things at my own pace. That means for now I’d prefer a home without small kids, and where I’m the only dog – although if you have a chilled out big-dog brother for me, that might be okay too.

Are you the special home I’m looking for? Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

We are finalists in the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards 2019!

Margot with Zephyr

Margot Undercliffe with greyhound Zephyr

Greyhound Rescue (GR) made it to the finals for ‘Outstanding Rescue Group’ in the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards 2019.

These awards showcase excellence and innovation in rescue. In its second year, the program attracted more than 1,000 entries.

To get this far, GR volunteer Margot Undercliffe put together a knock-out submission which took 25 hours, but she said it was “worth it” given the incredible team effort by GR volunteers.

“Being a finalist for this category is well-deserved recognition for the incredible work GR’s dedicated team of volunteers undertake in the many areas of running a successful animal rescue,” said Margot. Read More »

Rain (on trial)

Hi, I’m Rain! I’m a social butterfly who just loves meeting new people! I might be eight and have a few teeth missing, but don’t let that fool you- I’m still young at heart and I’ll show you by being so happy and playful every time you come home! Once that’s out of the way through, I’m the friendliest girl and I can’t wait to just spend time with you (and maybe ask for a few pats too)! I get on well with other dogs so if you have any of those, that’s fine with me!

*Rain has been diagnosed with Pannus for which she’ll have to have ongoing daily medication. As Rain has also lost quite a few teeth, good dental care will be essential.

If you’re looking for a social butterfly like me, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Azalea

Hi, I’m Azalea and I’m every bit as pretty as my namesake! My favourite thing in the world is roaching – I just love a good roach! I don’t need a lot of room so if you live in an apartment that’s fine by me – as long as I have a nice soft bed of my own where I can roach to my heart’s content. I don’t mind other greyhounds but I’m not too fond of those small dogs, so I think I’d prefer not to be in the inner city – I hear there are a lot of them there! I’m still learning how to be a pet and how to share my things, so for now I think I’d like a home with no other dogs – but I’m sure you’ll only have eyes for me!
