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 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.

Muriel (on trial)

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?

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!

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.
