National Volunteer Week

During National Volunteer Week (20-26 May, 2019), Janet and Peter Flann, Greyhound Rescue (GR) co-founders, want to say a big ‘thank you’ to all GR volunteers.

This year the theme for National Volunteer Week is ‘Making a world of difference’.

“Our volunteers do exactly that, whether it’s kennel work, processing adoption and fostering applications, liaising with people who sponsor a dog or driving greyhounds back and forward for medical checks,” said Janet.

“Everyone’s welcome. We need more volunteers for shifts at our kennels near Camden at the moment.”

Meanwhile, one volunteer, foster carer Andrew Garrick whose day job is as a TV executive producer, has made a short video to help GR reach more potential foster carers. You can view the video here >

“Fostering is rewarding because greyhounds have so much love to give and Cheeky’s settled in easily,” he said.

Andrew’s partner, assistant principal April Morley, is a new volunteer with GR who helps process adoption applications in her spare time. She says the couple fostered because they wanted to help.

“We fostered because we love dogs and wanted to help prepare a greyhound for successful adoption into its forever home. Also, I’ve really enjoyed doing volunteer shifts at the kennels where I always want to take every dog home with me,” she said.
