Most of the money donated to Friends of the Hound pays for vet bills.
We take a lot of broken Greyhounds that no one wants to take on due to the expense of veterinary surgery and treatment.
Currently FOTH Vice President, Lynette, has 3 Greyhound pups in her care.
About 7 years ago FOTH helped me find Dicey. Or you helped Dicey find me. She has been the greatest gift I have ever received. She has showed me a kind of love that I didn’t know the world could create. She loved first and judged second and that is a lesson I will take with me forever.
Everyone in FoTH and the Sunshine Coast has now heard of Boo (now known as Bear). The infamous little chap who decided to go walkabout for a week in Coolum on Easter Saturday.
Boo was only having a temporary stay in Coolum while we went away for the weekend. However, it soon became apparent that he doesn’t like bad weather. Whilst heading out for a final toilet stop before bedtime, a sudden gust of wind caused flapping of some nearby leaves, scaring the living daylights out of him. Unfortunately, he pulled so hard and fast that his lead slipped out of a very secure hand. Into the wind, rain and dark he bolted. That was the last time he was seen for just over a week.
What a year it has been... Sunshine is just our life!!!!
We love everything about her and she is hilarious. She is quirky, loving, loyal, beautiful and sooo funny ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Georgie’s adoption was very much anticipated, and on Boxing Day 2013, she finally arrived!
We had specifically wanted a black girl after meeting several and seeing how pretty they were with their glossy black coats. Barnaby our male greyhound almost lost his mind when she arrived and was eager to share everything with her, including his toys and beds!
For at least a year before we put in an application to adopt a greyhound from Friends of the Hound, I'd carry around a FOTH pamphlet acquired from market stalls (at West End and Eumundi) in my bag and would whip it out at random so my wife Marian would get the hint. Not very subtle!
We just wanted to thank ALL involved in the adoption of our very-loved girl, Sooty.
Losing 4 beloved pets over the past 4 years had taken a toll on us, but we wanted to adopt another rescue dog. We love that both Lyndal & Alison took the time to get to know us and our needs to work out what hound would suit us and our lifestyle. We appreciate the duty of care shown with the whole process. As soon as I met Sooty, I fell in love with her.
