Racing 2 Rehome - Greyhound Adoption - Korumburra, VIC
Adoption, Shelter, Welfare
Racing 2 Rehome is an all-volunteer non-profit corporation operating in Victoria Australia. We are a new and small group established in 2017, working in South Gippsland and the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Our greyhounds come from local trainers in the racing industry. We get young dogs that didn't want to race or aren't fast enough. We get dogs a few years old that have finished racing. We also get older dogs after they have had puppies, or maybe they were a pet. Sometimes we get greyhounds of various ages from adopted homes - maybe circumstances have changed and the family can't look after the greyhound any more. We foster each dog in a home environment while they transition to pet life. This means they live with a foster family until they are adopted.
Finding the right home is the most important thing we can do for our greyhounds. Our volunteers will assist you through the adoption process in selecting the right greyhound for your circumstances, and to ensure your new family member has the smoothest transition into their new life with you.
Greyhound and Whippet Coats
When the temperature is below 15 Â°C, your greyhound or whippet needs to wear a coat or a blanket. There are other dog breeds with shaggy, warm coats of their own. Greyhounds and whippets don't have their own heavy coats - that would be a problem to a dog built for running speed. So the dogs have to trust their human to keep them warm.
?Greyhound coats are pretty easy to find. Lots of places sell greyhound coats. Whippet coats can be harder to find - a greyhound coat is usually too big for a whippet.
?Racing 2 Rehome sells various different types of coat. Our best-selling coat comes from Skinnydog Bling. These dog coats are professionally made to our custom design. They are warm and water-resistant, ideal for the winter months (and we've been getting some cold nights this summer, too). Our dog coats are brightly coloured - useful if you are walking your dog after dark. We carry a large range of colours, designs and sizes. If you want a good-looking coat for your whippet, or a snuggly warm coat for your greyhound, this is the place.
Racing 2 Rehome also makes our own whippet coats and greyhound coats. Making them ourselves means that we can do custom designs and custom sizes. Most of our coats are polar fleece - nice and warm but not soggy when wet. We've also done some greyhound coats in more out-there materials, such as the "bikie-leather" coat that we did for Ken's greyhound, with Harley Davidson logo and everything. Custom coats means custom coats!
