Greyhound Haven Tasmania

Greyhound Rescue and Education

News and Updates

Due to ongoing funding issues, Greyhound Haven Tasmania will now only be taking in dogs on a very limited basis. While we would like to be able to take in larger numbers, the welfare of the dogs must be our first priority.
As of January 1, 2013, our adoption fee will increase to $250 to help us to recover some of the many costs associated with preparing the dogs for rehoming. 
The Greyhound Health and First Aid Guide is finally complete and we hope to have it available by January.
Site updates will be sporadic while we work on the Greyhound Health and First Aid Guide. We're hoping to have this completed by mid-February and available to download towards the end of February.
Certificate of Incorporation received.
Application for Incorporation was submitted, waiting on response.
The constitution for Greyhound Haven Tasmania has been written and will be available soon to view in our downloads area.
We've started writing up a constitution for Greyhound Haven as part of the process to become an incorporated association.
Incorporation is not compulsory but establishes Greyhound Haven as a legal entity, amongst other benefits.
Additionally, we're now looking for people willing to become part of our committee. Our membership requirements are fairly broad however we may refuse applications that we believe run counter to our aims or applications from individuals previously placed on the exclusion list of the Greyhound Adoption Program (TAS) Inc. under the management of Maddy Phillips (this serves to protect both our reputation and our group from activities that we believe are counter to ethical rescue and promotion of greyhound welfare).
