Why not think about saving a greyhound?
GSN desperately need more Foster carers.
If you have a ‘cat-free home’, please look at Cody's appealing eyes, and consider fostering to save a greyhound’s life.
When you join the GSN Fostering team, we will support you with a mentor and our closed Foster facebook page.
Worried you won't be able to part with the dog?
You will get to meet the loving family who want to adopt your greyhound, and you can choose to stay in touch with them - which makes the parting so much easier.

GSN can't understand why such a friendly, outgoing dog like Steve hasn't found a home?
So if you wish to meet Steve before the end of May, we will discount his adoption fee down to $150, as we are sure you will fall for his charms!
Need a Handsome Fella in your Life?
Steve is a fit, strong, handsome gentleman with a shiny coat and gorgeous eyes.
More importantly he has a gentle soul. He is a smoocher who wants to be loved and is ready to be a wonderful pet for his forever family. This beautiful, funny boy does all the greyhound things. He roaches (a lot, in hilarious ways!), leaps, takes over the couch, gets excited for meals and walks, and has a huge smile to show his happiness. He loves being in water, especially a clam shell pool, is a confident walker and is currently in foster care with another greyhound and a bull terrier.
For more details about Steve and our other wonderful greyhounds that are looking for their adoptive 'forever' homes, please go to our Greyhounds for Adoption page.
GSN greyhounds live in foster homes up until the time you adopt them - as this provides you with a well socialised pet.
The muzzle laws in Victoria changed on 1st January, 2019, for pet greyhounds that have been adopted and are registered with their local council.
GSN wishes to share with you some tips and traps:
🐾 Although muzzles can legally come off, the leash must stay on, even in designated ‘off-leash’ areas. This is required by law under the Domestic Animals Act, and that law is not changing.
🐾 GSN recommend avoiding taking your greyhound to off-leash areas, as it may become frustrated and upset with surrounding dogs running off-leash.
🐾 If your dog is overly excitable or reactive around other dogs, please continue to use the muzzle to protect other dogs, and your dog as well, as a dog can be declared ‘dangerous’ or ‘menacing’ if it attacks or even rushes another dog.
GSN are always in need of more Foster-carers as requests to rescue greyhounds are much greater than the available foster-homes in our program. Our foster-carers are a vital link in the rescue chain, as GSN dogs are kept in foster-homes until adopted. Every greyhound taken into foster care is a dog saved, and every greyhound adopted makes room to save another. More details

GSN was extremely fortunate to be one of the recipients of the Victorian Government's Animal Welfare grants, which assisted us to buy a new vehicle for our mobile rescue and rehoming service.
Sarah Jane May kindly donated her beautiful ‘pointy friends’ artwork for the car, and pictured enjoying the spacious interior are GSN adoptees Mitch (rear seat), Debbie (front).
