Earl

Hi, my name is Earl…. Earl Grey, that is! Despite my fancy title, I don’t come with a bit list of demands, my needs are pretty simple really. A warm bed, abundant toys, and a backyard for me to stretch my legs. I’m a happy boy who’s definitely not shy about asking for a pat when I want one. I like kids and get along well with other greyhounds, I’m just not much of a fan of those small-fluffy things they call dogs so none of those please!

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.

Help us find a home for Toesie

 

UPDATE: We’re happy to let you know that Toesie has found her forever home! 

Toesie is twelve years old and has spent every single night of her life sleeping in kennels. She is desperately seeking a foster or forever home before the chill of winter sets in.

Unsure of herself at the moment, she needs a quiet and patient home to come out of her shell and learn to live life. Toesie is feeling every bit of her twelve years, she is frail and not capable of much exercise.

She may be suitable to live with other dogs who are relaxed and low energy. A home with young children will be too overwhelming for her, and we believe she will prefer company during the day.

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.

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…

Keith

Hiya, the name’s Keith but my mates like to call me ‘Keef’. Just like my namesake, I’ve become quite the rock star here at GR HQ, I’ve certainly got a lot of fans! I’ve got loads of personality and I’ve been told that I’m an excellent cuddler. I’m certainly not shy and just love getting out and about. I do have to tell you that my kidneys need a little bit of help, this means I need to be on a special diet* and have to go to the dogtors every six months or so to make sure I’m still doing well.

Now, in true rock star style, it’s all about me…  so while I’m learning this pet caper, it probably best that I’m the centre of your attention for now. Not to worry though, once you meet me you won’t want to share me with anyone else!

Patches

Hi! I’m Patches. If you’re looking for a quiet but goofy kind of companion, I might be your guy! I haven’t known much of this big wide world yet but so far since I’ve arrived at GR HQ, I’ve discovered how much I love toys – oh, and nothing is beating a good cuddle and a scratch! I really enjoying the company of people! I’m still very new to this whole pet business, so it’s best that I’m the only doggo in your life while I get used to living in a home. I’m sure it won’t take me long to learn the ropes though!
