Dawson

Hi, I’m Dawson and I’m what you might call a bit of a velcro dog, I’m always happy to see you! I’m good with older kids (maybe some teenagers to throw a toy around with), and LOVE being with people – I’m looking forward to sharing the couch with you if you’ve got a spare spot for me! I don’t ask for much really – a bit of your lounge, a good walk every day and some playtime, and lots of love!

Junior

Hi there, I’m Junior! You can tell I’m the goodest boy, because I’ll sit for you! I’m a pretty chilled out dude, I do love my toys but I’m also just happy hanging out and lapping up all the attention. I’m dreaming of a home with lots of space so I can practice some new tricks, so I don’t think the apartment life is for me. While I get on well with other big dogs, they tell me I’ve not quite learned my sharing manners yet (ahem) so probably best as an only doggo for now until I can be the goodest boy I can be. Besides, once you meet me – you won’t want to share me with anybody else!

Sasha

Hello! I’m Sasha, a cheeky little miss ready to steal your heart! At just over 2 years old, I am still a playful girl – I love meeting new people and toys… I LOVE toys! Especially if you have a squeaky toy. Oh boy, I LOOOOOVE those! As I’ve had a previous injury*, I’d do best in a home without a big yard (a courtyard or apartment would suit me just fine). I’m not too bad with other dogs, but I think I’d like to be the centre of your attention so I can concentrate super hard on learning what this pet business is about without too many distractions. I promise I’ll pay you back with lots of affection!

Neville

Hi there, I’m Neville… you can probably already tell I’m a bit of a larrikin. I mean, I’m already auditioning for ‘tongue out Tuesday’. I arrived here at Greyhound Rescue with my brother Norman but I’m still waiting patiently for my forever home! When I’m not being the class clown, I’m happy just to chill out and watch the world go by. I’d love a home with plenty of room to stretch my legs, in a nice quiet neighbourhood or suburb – I don’t really fancy myself much of a city slicker, I reckon I’m much more of a country boy. I don’t mind other large dogs, I’m just not so comfortable around ‘tiny’ things, like tiny dogs or tiny humans so best if you don’t have any of those. I really love being the centre of attention… which means I’m not really keen on sharing the spotlight so I’m best as an only dog. Once you meet me though, you’ll learn why you wouldn’t want anyone else in your life but me!

A big thank you to Innopets!

We’d love to thank Innopets for their generous donation of Lickimats and Throbizz balls for our enrichment program.

Paula, the lucky volunteer who got to distribute the toys said “The Lickimats were a hit, Kwazi had a few licks followed by prancing around with the Lickimat in his mouth as if he was showing it off to the world. The other hounds loved them, it kept them occupied and focused until the Lickmats were licked totally clean. The mats proved to be a great enrichment activity for the hounds.”

Enrichment activities are important for our hounds; it keeps their minds active and gives them something to do during the day. If you would like to donate some toys to our enrichment programs please get in touch.

Greyhound Rescue are running the City 2 Surf!

Our team are busy training for this year’s 14km City2Surf – they’re running so the greys don’t have to! But if you’re more of a couch potato like our hounds, don’t worry there’s another way you can help! Sponsor our team and help raise much-needed funds for our rescue greyhounds.

If you’re already in training, why not consider running for us? Anyone is welcome to join team Greyhound Rescue and those who raise $150 in sponsorship will get a yellow Greyhound Rescue T-shirt to wear on the day.

There’s still plenty of time to join in.
