The Friends of the Hound Greyhound Adoption Group is dedicated to the welfare of Greyhounds.
Their mission is to create public awareness of the Greyhound as a gentle, affectionate dog and excellent family pet, and to save and find companion homes for as many beautiful Greyhounds as possible. They advocate the ADOPTION, NOT DESTRUCTION motto.
Through a comprehensive program of promotion and education, Friends of the Hound aim to dispel any lasting misconceptions about Greyhounds and increase public awareness of their plight. Greyhounds are not just race dogs, they make lovely family pets and companions and are suitable dogs for suburban homes and people of all ages.
Friends of the Hound Inc. is a volunteer-based, not-for-profit rescue charity, relying solely on fundraising and donations, the generosity of the local community and the efforts of members, to achieve their aims. Show your support of Friends of the Hound by making a donation here
Racing2Rehome is an all-volunteer non-profit organisation operating in Victoria, Australia. Established in 2017, adoptions through R2R are already nearing 300, to date.
The R2R team are always looking for opportunities to find loving homes for greyhounds. In 2019, R2R established a partnership with 2 USA Adoption groups, Greyhound Pets Inc & Royal Hounds. 23 greyhounds were flown to the USA for rehoming. The program was a huge success and is set to continue. Unfortunately, due to the COVID pandemic this initiative is on hold.
Racing2Rehome believe every greyhound should have the opportunity to find a forever home and take in greyhounds with high prey drive, medical issues, and seniors looking for love in their twilight years. The team at Racing2Rehome work closely with a behaviour trainer for dogs with high prey drive or behaviour issues, with great success in setting them up for pet life. Every greyhound is fostered in a home environment to enable them to learn about pet life.
Racing2Rehome are committed to making the world a better place for the greyhound. ‘Our dream is to see every greyhound adopted into a loving, responsible, forever home.’ Make a donation to Racing2Rehome here
