Paddington Pups Lends a Helping Paw

Paddington Pups Lends a Helping Paw.

At Paddington Pups we love dogs and want the best for all of them. That is why we are honoured to be big supporters of Gumtree Greys. Gumtree Greys works to rescue, foster and find forever homes for greyhounds. With unregulated breeding of Greyhounds for the racing industry in Australia, there is a huge problem with thousands of dogs being euthanized every year. This is due to a surplus in needed dogs and dogs that are no longer able to race. At Paddington Pups we have provided over $30 000 worth of support to Gumtree Greys and look forward to continuing to support them in the future. You can find out more about Gumtree Greys here .
