You’ve probably heard of Surrealism, Impressionism and maybe even Fauvism.
But have you heard of Houndism?!
It’s our Friends of the Hound art movement that celebrates the beauty and love we feel for greyhounds.
So ready your paints, pastels, clay, embroidery or whatever medium inspires you and unleash your creativity!
We’d prefer art made with your hands rather than with a computer or phone but are open to seeing where your creativity takes you.
Entries open: Monday, 1 May 2023
And close: Friday, 30 June 2023

In case you missed us on TV…
After a visit to a pound two decades ago saw Lisa White save an ex-racing greyhound from euthanasia, she has devoted her life to giving these precious dogs a chance to find their forever homes.

Adoption not Destruction
The Friends of the Hound
Greyhound Adoption Group
is dedicated to the welfare of Greyhounds.
Our 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.
We advocate the ADOPTION, NOT DESTRUCTION motto.
Through a comprehensive program of promotion and education, we 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 our local community and the efforts of our members, to achieve our aims.
All Greyhounds homed through Friends of the Hound are desexed, vaccinated and wormed, and are homed with their own warm coat, collar, lead, toy, tag and muzzle.
Happiness is a Rescued Greyhound
Big thanks to Luke for his generous help putting this beautiful video together for us.
Commit to make a change
Greyhounds in our care are desexed, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated, and often provided dental care and treatment or surgery for injuries.
This all comes at significant cost for a volunteer-based, not-for-profit charity.
We rely heavily on fundraising and donations from our supporters.
We’re asking for your help!
Can you commit to make a monthly donation – just a few dollars each week – to Friends of the Hound so that we may continue our important rescue and adoption mission?
