Happy Holidays from Greyhound Rescue

With 2017 drawing to a close, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of our wonderful supporters for enabling Greyhound Rescue to do what it does best, rescue and rehome greyhounds.

People just like you are what makes Greyhound Rescue tick. From our dedicated and tireless volunteers, our fantastic sponsors and supporters, fabulous foster carers, and everyone who has adopted a hound.

Happy Holidays, and on to an even more amazing 2018!

A big festive thank you to Lush Cosmetics!

Greyhound Rescue would like to thank Lush Cosmetics once again for its generous support of our lovely hounds! After our visit to the manufacturing plant at Villawood earlier this year, the whole team has a very soft spot for Greyhound Rescue.

Lush’s Villawood Manufacturing team chooses a charity each year to be the recipient of Kris Kringle presents. Instead of gifting to one another, the team members purchase items for a charity of their choice and this year they chose us.

Thank you so much Lush!

A dog for Christmas?

We’ve all seen those cute photos on Instagram of adorable puppies wearing a big bow and sitting under the Christmas tree. But is getting a dog for Christmas a good idea? Yes and no! While you should NEVER get a dog as a gift without consulting the recipient, the Christmas break can be the perfect time to welcome a new dog. Read More »

Volunteer of the Month – December

We’d like to introduce you to Lex, one of our dedicated volunteers who we are recognising as our ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for the month of December.

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. These volunteers have demonstrated exceptional passion, commitment, reliability, and cooperation to make GR what it is, and we thank them tremendously.

We had a chat to Lex to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…

Help Iona Heal

Iona needs our help to heal

Iona came to Greyhound Rescue just recently, and has shown herself to be an incredibly sweet and affectionate lady. After a prior injury left her predisposed to dislocating her toe, and after repeated dislocations, vets made the tough call to amputate the toe in order to save her from future pain and suffering.

To date, Iona’s vet bills are over $1500 and will continue to climb as she needs ongoing veterinary care, and possible physiotherapy, while she starts along the road to recovery.

 

Iona is described by everyone who meets her as a sweet and affectionate dog who just loves the company of people. She deserves a loving forever home with a family who will give her all the love and ear scratches that she can get, and at just three years old Iona is just a young pup with plenty of ear scratching time ahead of her.

We need to raise the money to cover her surgery and ongoing care. Greyhound Rescue isn’t government funded, in fact, we rely entirely on kind donors just like you in order for us to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these gorgeous dogs.

Can you make a tax-deductible donation to help Iona heal?
