Today we remember all the men, women, service dogs and horses who gave their lives and fought for our freedom. Our country may have flaws but we are forever grateful for the freedom and opportunity that their sacrifices have given us. We hope and pray that one day we live in a world with no evil, no cruelty and no war. Lest. We. Forget. ANZAC Day 2018. #anzacday #rememberthem #lestweforget

So much can change in 5 years – bad situations can turn good, there is always hope ❤
5 years ago, I was 1 day from being born as part of a litter of 7. I was unfortunately born into greyhound racing. I raced in Newcastle, Gosford, Dubbo, Ipswich and Bundaberg, which is where I found myself no longer wanted after my last race in August 2016. I raced 52 times and made $6,721 in prize money which isn’t considered much, so I was now ‘wastage’. At least I found myself at a shelter, unlike 3 of my siblings who have been euthanised. My other 3 siblings haven’t had any activity or status updates since mid-2016, yet they are still listed as ‘racing’, so I can only imagine where they might be now and what has happened to them…

The fact I ended up in Brisbane, being collected by a lady who is now my Mum, was such an unlikely chance. As of the 21st November 2016, I was now part of my forever home and finally being treated, respected and loved the way that all dogs should be. It took me many months to feel safe and secure and to adapt emotionally, and I also had physical injuries that had never been treated, that were finally being looked at. It’s been 17 months since I was rescued by my family and tomorrow I turn 5 years old. Life is now good! Me finding my way to my forever home was so unlikely, and this is why my Mum named me Chance. ** Picture of me and Clover, touching paws as we do every night when we got to sleep **

Our legal counsel Shatha works approximately 400 hours a day and does lots of important work for animals. But she always finds time to share her lunch (and is very forgiving of Blue's lack of manners) and we 💙 her for it.

Hooray! The Victorian Government will remove the requirement for non-racing greyhounds to be muzzled in public as of the 1st of January 2019. Agriculture Minister, Jaala Pulford has stated, "the evidence tells us these are not dangerous dogs... I think the time has come." This is fantastic news for rescue groups and for greyhounds who suffer from a common misconception that they must be dangerous or aggressive because of this out-dated requirement for them to be muzzled. We have no doubt this will help greyhounds to be seen by the public as the loving companions they are, and will go a long way to restoring their image as gentle, affectionate hounds that deserve to be loved just like all dogs, and to be free from misconceptions that breed specific legislation like this brings. Faces this beautiful should never be hidden behind a muzzle! Thank you Vic Government! #FreetheFace #GreyhoundSmile
