Welcome to Gumtree Greys

Thousands of greyhounds are destroyed every year in Australia. At Gumtree Greys our mission is to rescue greyhounds, place them into appropriate foster care and ultimately have them adopted into loving, permanent homes. We are forever grateful to our foster carers and for donations – without which we are unable to carry out our rescue work.


Contrary to popular belief, these gentle, loving dogs require minimal exercise. Greyhounds make the most wonderful pets for families, couples, singles, the elderly – there is a perfect greyhound for everyone!


Temporary homing or “foster care” offers these beautiful creatures the opportunity of a safe haven, with an introduction into the wonders of a domestic world they have often previously been denied.

Who are we?

A volunteer rescue group, Gumtree Greys rescue and re-home greyhounds across Australia, primarily from Gumtree online classifieds, regional pounds and regional trainers.
