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?

Foster carers give the gift of love to homeless hounds

All Rescues need great foster carers – and Greyhound Rescue is no different.  One such foster carer is Julie-Ann Duncan.   Julie has so far fostered 4 greyhounds since she joined is just over a year ago!  All 4 are in wonderful homes and it’s due to the work Julie has done with them to get them ready for home life.  We also can’t forget Harrison the red cattle dog who is a wonderful foster brother to the greyhounds that come into Julie’s care

Keep your ‘hot dog’ cool this summer!

With summer on the way and forecasts climbing, it’s important to remember that furry family members feel the heat even more than we do. Temperatures that are merely uncomfortable for us can be life-threatening for dogs, making canine cooling techniques absolutely essential at this time of year. 

But don’t feel you have to hole up in air conditioning to keep Fido from overheating. There are many great activities you can enjoy together outdoors, too. Here are our top five fun ways to keep dogs cool in hot weather.  Read More »

Sydney’s best dog beaches you simply have to visit!

Dog-friendly beaches are a summertime paradise for pooches, and best of all they’re more common than you think!

Sure, many of Sydney’s most iconic beaches don’t allow pups, but you’ll find several harbour beaches, bays and lagoons where your dog can get his fur salty.

Once your pooch has dog-paddled, stick-collected and butt-sniffed to his heart’s content, why not let him feel the sand between his paws on a short stroll to dry off?

Volunteer of the Month – October

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

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 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 Anne to learn more about why she loves volunteering with Greyhound Rescue…
