What animals are available for foster and adoption?


Greys4Pets Inc primarily helps rescued and privately surrendered Greyhounds, however due to the growing number of domestic numbers needing rescue, we have taken on other breeds ranging from small to giant.

Please look at our Pet Rescue profile for all animals available for adoption and foster at www.petrescue.com.au/groups/10272.




How long will I have a foster animal for?


While some animals only need a short time in foster, others require long term care - which can potentially reach up to a few years. When you are applying to foster, you are able to specify what duration of care that you are able to provide.




What do I need to provide for a foster animal in my care?


Greys4Pets Inc try to provide as much as possible e.g food, bedding, toys, leads and collars. Our rescue relys on donations to provide all of these items to foster carers. Carers must be prepared to cover all neccessary items for their foster dog if donations are not available.

The rescue covers all necessary vet care and procedures that are preapproved by the administrative team, at select rescue vets.




Will being a full time carer be an issue?


No, as long as you are able to spend qaulity time with yoru foster dog/s before and after work, the foster dog should cope well. Many carers and adopters have full time jobs so it is important for the dogs to get used to being on their own and not become too dependant on someone being with them all of the time. If there are any animals that do require more time with someone home, the rescue will place them with the best suited carer who is able to provide for the needs of the dog.
