Happy Easter

Happy Easter to anyone who is logging in and it has definitely been a Happy Easter for the greyhounds because, after a slow spell, 6 greyhounds have gone on trial at various homes this week end. Holly has gone to Karen in Newtown, Joseph and Susie flew down to Canberra to be with Nick and Patch and Socks have gone to Katoomba with Vanessa and Peter.

Not to mention that a week ago Anna went to Mike and Fiona at Forestville, who have already adopted Jack and Poppie from us!!

So good luck to all the greyhounds and all the families and we hope that many more greyhounds will soon find homes like their lucky friends.

Garage Sale makes $525

It was hard work but thanks to a wonderful effort by all concerned, we raised $525 towards Greyhound Rescue’s funds. Particular thanks must go to Mike, Fiona, Charlotte and Natasha for donating so much of their Barbie collection and being a great help on the day as well. Also thanks to Maureen who donated the proceeds of a ‘walker’ to the total for the day and to Isobel and Linda who also donated items.

It should also be noted that the above mentioned Mike was also responsible for the ‘Bark in the Park’ photos and has since produced an excellent hand out for us. Thanks for all your hard and creative work Mike.

Bark in the Park

Today we went to Bark in the Park at Victoria Park, Camperdown, Sydney and the greyhounds had a marvellous time. The white sisters Patch and Socks looked just great in the Greyhound rescue coat, as did Dozer, Sophie, Jack, Angus and Poppy. Poppy even got to go on stage with Charlotte and Stevie Jacobs! However, it all became a bit too much and some of the hounds had to have a lie down!!

Also today, Andy and Sally went to foster carers Maria and Chris in Fairlight, so a big thank you to Maria and Chris.

More donations

Greyhound Rescue is proud to announce donations from Jess at Cross City Logistics, from Maureen in Killarney Heights and Amanda Waring and friends in Mosman. We are most grateful for this support which enables us to continue to rescue more greyhounds who deserve a life after racing or instead of racing.

We apologise if we have not mentioned any major donators and any omission is unintended.

More foster homes

February and March seem to have been the months for foster homes but not forever homes. We are very grateful to the number of people who have come forward to help with fostering a greyhound and this week end has seen Blackie go to Peter and Claire in Ermington, Louis go to Andy at Beacon Hill and Oliver go to Colleen and family at Wentworthville, who have already adopted Angie. Thank you again to all of these people and this means that we can now bring more greyhounds home to learn the ropes of living in a house as opposed to a kennel.

If anyone else can help in this way, then please contact us as we still have more greyhounds in kennels.

Foster Homes

Thank you to Jessica who is looking after Dasher and Tinsel, Jody and Richard who are looking after Anna and now Carol and family who are looking after the charismatic Tiger. We are very grateful to you all for the help that you are giving us. Every greyhound that goes into a foster home means that we can bring one more home from kennels to not only live in more comfortable surroundings but also learn how to live in a home with vacuums, washing machines, little dogs etc.

If you can help by fostering a greyhound, or adopting one, you would be doing a wonderful service and we would be very grateful to you. Please contact Peter or Janet on 0412 562 104

Foster homes coming in

On Friday the ‘Manly Daily’ ran a small article for us and we have had a heartwarming response, with 3 greyhounds already installed in foster homes this week-end as a result and two more potential foster families to follow up. Thank you to all those who have helped so generously and responded so quickly.

However, we still have a lot more greyhounds who are currently in kennels and we would love them to be living in homes with foster carers. So if you can help us and foster a beautiful greyhound, they are so gentle and affectionate you just have to experience it to believe it, then you would be doing a wonderful thing for the animal world.

Please email or call us on 02 9453 0602 or 0412 562 104
