It’s tax time… boost your refund and help a hound!

End of Financial Year Greyhound Rescue Donations

Tina here has been busy reviewing the figures now that the end of financial year is almost here, and she thinks Greyhound Rescue could really use your help.

Here at Greyhound Rescue, we receive no official funding, and our vet bills, kennel bills, food bills and more just keep on mounting. Yes, we know you’ve heard this before, but try as she might, Tina just can’t balance the books. There’s so much money going out and not enough coming in, which is exactly where YOU come in.

An end of financial year donation will not only help us (so, so much), it will actually help you, too. Donations at this time of year allow you to reduce your taxable income. Plus, it’s no secret that giving simply makes you feel good – by giving a small donation,  you get warm fuzzy feelings by helping to keep our fuzzy hounds warm!

So when you’re finalising things for the end of the tax year, please spare a thought for Tina’s fellow houndies, who haven’t been as lucky as her and are waiting patiently for their forever homes. 

The easiest way for you to help is via bank transfer or PayPal.

Account Name:  Greyhound Rescue Inc
BSB: 012 289
Account No: 524 792 379
Reference: EOFY Donation

If you do a bank transfer, please also email to let us know you’ve donated.

The hounds thank you!

Help fix baby Astro’s deformed leg

Poor little six-month-old Astro has arrived at Greyhound Rescue with a severely deformed leg, leaving him unable to walk properly. We are committed to getting him the care he needs so he can live his best possible life! Despite his setback, he’s still a bright and effervescent pup.

Astro will be able to live a normal life and walk without discomfort after some pretty complex surgery. The healing process will be long and potentially tricky, but he should recover well. This surgery needs to be done ASAP before his bones have the chance to grow further with the deformity. He is being well looked after by our dedicated volunteers and his medical team, but the road to recovery will be delicate and everyone has their fingers crossed for no complications.

We need to raise $4000 to cover the costs of Astro’s surgery and recovery. Greyhound Rescue relies on the generosity of donors like you to help us do what we do; saving puppies like little Astro who otherwise wouldn’t be given a chance.

Hi there, I’m Ezra. I wasn’t in the best shape when I arrived here at GR HQ but thanks to lots of TLC from the lovely volunteers I’m doing so much better! I’m quite a joyful boy who loves to play and hang around people. It really hasn’t taken me long to discover the simple pleasures in life – snacking, snoozing and squeaky toys! I’d love a caring and patient home that understands all of these new things and the big wide world is all very new to me.

Hi there, I’m Sundae. Like my name, I’m a sweet boy looking for my forever couch. You see, I’m quite timid and will need an extra special family who will take the time to gently and patiently bring me out of my shell. I’m a little bit unsure of this big wide world so I like to take my time to get used to new people and situations. I’d love a quiet home with a friendly female doggy friend who’s braver than can help show me the ropes of this pet life.

Hi there, I’m Cheeky and my mission in life is to be your best friend (and sleep on your couch). I’ve matured as I’ve grown older and developed some manners however I still like to go by the name of Cheeky or Sweet Cheeks. I am a lively and happy girl who is learning to play and socialise. I much prefer humans so please don’t make me hang around with any of those furry things you call cats or dogs. I’m well behaved with older children who can give me pats and treats. I’m a rather stylish girl. When I’m not wearing the latest fashion out of Milan, I’m dressed in my sleek black coat. Not to toot my own horn, but you won’t believe how shiny and soft it is. I wear a boot when I go walking, but don’t worry it goes with my outfit. I’m a country girl at heart who prefers some peace and quiet out of the big city.

Hello! I’m Bolt, and If tall dark and handsome is your criteria, I already fit the bill. Add to that my athletic build, my radar ears to catch all your signals, and cheeky personality I could just be the perfect catch! Just like my namesake, I’d say I’m pretty partial to a zoomie or two… oh, and playing with toys – love it! I can be a wee bit shy around new things but it doesn’t take long for my happy personality to come through, especially if you’ve got a toy or a good ear scratch for me!! I’m not too sure about those small fluffy-type ‘dog’ things yet, so best if you don’t have any of those at yours.

Clancy (on trial)

Hi there, I’m Clancy – the happiest boy you’ll ever meet! I’m currently available for interviews for the role of being your best friend ever! I’m a chipper and outgoing boy that absolutely loves hanging out with people – I’m certainly not shy when it comes asking for a pat or three. When it comes to other dogs, I prefer the company of the ladies… I’m still learning my manners around those small fluffy things (I think they’re dogs too?)  so best I don’t go to a home with one of those. Oh, I should tell you too, I love food and squeaky toys and food (just in case you missed the part about the food).

Hi, I’m Muriel and there’s nothing terrible about me! I can be a wee little bit shy, which means I’m not much of a city slicker and would prefer to spend my days in a nice, quiet suburb. Also, if you have a chilled out big-dog brother for me, I’d be OK with that – they can be my security blanket! I am the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet, so what do you say?
