Shoalhaven greyhound racing is dedicated to the welfare of our dogs and below is small sample of dogs available for adoption. We have dogs ready to be adopted in the Shoalhaven, Southern Highlands and Goulburn area’s. By adopting locally you will have access to the owner for ongoing advice, help if ever needed plus access to a large network of people that are there for you no matter what. Some of our dogs are placed with free lifetime boarding as well which allows you to go on holidays worry free.
Got a question? Contact us or come down to the markets held at the Nowra track every 4th Sunday of the month and talk to our volunteers. and meet some of the dogs looking for forever homes. All dogs are placed at no cost and are desexed, vaccinated, micro chipped and vet checked to the right homes. Homes will be subject to a yard inspection and through an application process. For dogs out of the Shoalhaven, Southern Highlands or Goulburn area, please look at NSW Greyhounds as pets.
A sample of current dogs for adoption
WANTED – one or more faces to plant this tongue on on a regular basis. Its weird how dogs can love up to their names but Marcia is a bit of a dag. She is perfectly suited for any type of family from a retired couple, to a full on Brady bunch of kids. Being in kennels she can be a bit jumpy with new things, however once she sees them she is back off brushing her hair without a care in the world.
So if your a Greg, Peter, Jan or Cindy she would love to grove her way into your family and will fit right into your bunch. Like all of our Grey’s she is desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and is free to an approved home with a fully fenced yard under application. A home inspection will be required with any application. Contact Glenn for more information
*** YOGI HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR HIS HOME FOR OVER A YEAR **
He is a 6 year old black male and is not your average bear. In fact he is HUGE!. He is tall, strong and very muscular making him not suitable for families with small children as he likes a hug or 2 and may knock them over.
He is a happy go lucky boy that would make the perfect pet for someone who has had large dogs before. He is fine with other dogs but we recommend a meet and greet if your looking to add him to your family.
Yogi can be seen at the next market day or we can arrange a meet up at the track one day. He definitely will leave an impression on you. He comes free and is desexed, micro chipped and vaccinated to the right home. A home inspection will be required with any application. Contact Glenn
A lovely happy go lucky 3 year old girl who can multi task with being a cuddle one minute then can quickly switch gears to be a co-pilot on a family adventure the next. She is great with children and would make the ideal family pet suited to any type of home.
She is a dream to walk on a lead but will require a daily walk because although she loves a good lay around like the next greyhound, she is young and wants to see the world.
Roxy like all of our Grey’s is desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and is free to an approved home with a fully fenced yard under application. A home inspection will be required with any application. Contact Glenn for more information
Dodger has a bit of a sad story. He has been looking for his forever home since he was born and is now over 1 year old. He had 2 potential homes, both of which fell through and the sad result for him was he has grown up in a kennel instead of being a puppy in a happy home.
Have no fear though as he has grown up to be a big goofy fur ball of love and is a puppy trapped in a fully grown body. He is over shot in his mouth but it gives him a enduring look – very much like “Sid” from Iceage. He loves a game, he loves to crash after a game and is very comfy crashing anywhere for a nap – including right in the middle of the stand on adoption day.
Not being a race dog he really needs to get out of kennels and into life. He has a lot of it to offer and would love it if you could consider sharing it with him. Like all of our Grey’s he is desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and is free to an approved home with a fully fenced yard under application. A home inspection will be required with any application. Contact Glenn for more information
Ryder is a DUDE! at 3 years old he is a big unit weighing in at 34kg so will require a home that is used to large dogs. He LOVES sausage sandwiches which we found out at the adoption day and has a versatile nature where he was happy and content meeting the public then was happy to have the off button as well. He is polite, placid and quiet which we saw first hand and although he is a big boy, he can be a little lazy so only reqiure’s light exercise. He showed no reaction to little dogs at our adoption days and would be a great addition to any type of family. Like all of our Grey’s he is desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and is free to an approved home with a fully fenced yard under application. A home inspection will be required with any application.

Cant adopt but can foster?
Well we need you! If you are able to foster a grey to help them find their forever home we would love to hear from you. Fosters are important to our program as they expose the dogs to every day living like the lounge 😀 and simple things like the vacuum or washing machine. If you can help or would like more information please contact us. We really could use your help. Foster homes have their expenses ( food/vet bills etc) covered by the program and dogs need to be returned back to us after a max of 6 weeks (we don’t just dump them and forget about them). Of course you can adopt them, but we would love foster homes that are happy to return them and help another grey
