Skylar

Hi there, I’m Skylar, the happiest girl with the waggiest tail! I’m a sweet-natured girl who absolutely loves hanging out with people (that’s when I do my best tail wagging). I like to take it fairly easy and get to know my what’s around me first so I don’t think I’m much of a city gal with all of the hustle and bustle and would enjoy a quieter neighbourhood. Besides, that means lots more room for me to wag my tail!

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

Wilbert

Hi! I’m Wilbert. I’m a wee bit shy so I’ll need some extra-special ‘pawrents’ 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. Once I get to know you though, I’m a rather affectionate and playful boy. I’d do my best in a home without any kids or other dogs for now while I get used to my new life as a pet but I’m really excited about finding my forever home!

If you’ve got room for a special boy like me, get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

Nyx

Hi! I’m Nyx – nice to meet you! I’m a happy go lucky and friendly guy who’s not really shy about asking for some attention. I’ve not seen much of this big wide world, so I’d love a home where I can discover all of these new and exciting things at my own pace. Maybe if you’ve got a yard for me to stretch my legs, that might be nice too. Speaking of new things, I met a small dog the other day, and I don’t think I’d be keen to live with one of those but I think another big dog for company might be nice! I also LOVE my food almost as much as I love my toys, so I’d love a home where you could accommodate my needs.

Got room on your couch for a handsome chap like me? Get in touch at info@greyhoundrescue.com.au or fill in an application form.

No grey area: NSW government must fund dogs charity – Peter FitzSimons

Image credit: Simon Bennett

Read the article on SMH »

You and me, babe. You’ll recall we got into the whole greyhound thing back in 2015 after the mighty Four Corners exposé of the horrors of live-baiting, and we not only supported the Baird government banning it, but were loudly appalled a couple of years ago when they caved in after all. But then our attention shifted, didn’t it? We went on to other things, and while we were out some of the industry went back to their old ways.

Barney

Hi! I’m Barney and I’m a pretty cool dude and all-round loveable goofball. I’ve been living it up in foster care and discovering just how much I love seeking out pats – they’re the best! I’m a gentle boy and I’m fine with children as long as they’re a bit older. I’m still learning about small fluffy creatures at the moment but I’m happy to have another greyhound friend to chill out with!

A note from Barney’s foster carers:

He loves toys, his bed, pats. He’ll just stand next to you if you keep patting him and has been coming out of his shell and getting a bit demanding which is amazing! He loves ear, neck and chest scratches.

He’s a bit lazy and loves laying down but will engage with toys and treats when you ask / encourage. He’s a good listener and gets up when we want to put his coat on and responds well to his name if he’s barking in the backyard for some reason.
He’s good on walks and his confidence has skyrocketed when manoeuvring over and up rocks and likes getting his feet wet! Happy to come home and sleep when we get home, you can tell he gets tired half way through the walk and never pulls with the harness. He’s very good on lead and listens.

When we’ve seen other dogs he has reacted with a bark (especially if they’re barking at him) but we took him for a walk the other day and he ignored chickens (he was walking on the other side of me and was happy to keep walking with me on a short leash). However on the walk there were a few dogs that were barking at him through fences and he barked back and tried to stand still but didn’t pull me off my feet and let us walk off with some redirection. He’d be so good with a older person – he’s very lazy, VERY gentle and would be happy with a walk around the block. Very cute and good boy!

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 peter@greyhoundrescue.com.au 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.

Cheeky

 

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.

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