Greyhound Adoption, Education and Support
I Want A Greyhound (IWaG) Inc. is a registered not-for-profit greyhound rehoming, education and support charity.
IWaG’s mission is to find forever pet homes for all greyhounds placed in our care.
The founders, members, volunteers and supporters of IWaG are passionate about greyhound welfare. We are opposed to the harming of any animal and the use of animals for entertainment.
One of IWaG’s core philosophies is that we will not harm other animals while undertaking our greyhound rehoming work. Examples include a prohibition on the sale of animal products.
As well as rehoming, we believe it is important to focus on educating the wider community about the welfare of greyhounds by building a strong, supportive greyhound loving community and network of partners.

Hound of the Month
Hi I’m Kong a three year old handsome black boy, that has a white blaze chest and paws that look like they’ve been dipped in white paint.
I have been looking for my forever home for nine months now and I’d really love to find my forever family and couch that I can snooze my days away on.
I have been described as a snuggle bug as I love to cuddle with you on the couch and bed if you’ll allow me. I will happily sleep on my own bed but I love the company of my people and will shower you with my affection.
If you leave food on the counter, I will absolutely be delighted to taste test, so it’s best if you keep food in the pantry. My snoot is built for investigation, perhaps that’s my calling in life, Detective Kong. Learning new tricks is something I enjoy doing, especially if you reward me with a treat. I also enjoy enrichment activities and food puzzles.
If you have a yard, I can show you my zoomies and how much fun we can have together playing fetch. I also enjoy the company of other dogs and would love the companionship.
I would really thrive in a home where my people are home most of the time and where you could give me your time and patience in training me. I also need consistency and dedication in training and in return can give you oodles of love and cuddles.
I love my people so much that when you leave me I get upset and suffer separation anxiety. As I am a big strong boy, I need a home with adults that can walk and exercise with me.
If you want to know more about me or meet me, please give IWaG a call on 0421 298 970 or complete the adoption enquiry form.
Lots of love,
IWaG will provide training and lessons with Sue from @fellowshipofpaws to support Kong’s transition to his forever home.
Hounds in homes
Beautiful Project 21 girl Shari has found her forever family and couch!
This sweet little girl is shy when she first meets you and takes a moment to warm up, yet she smiles and wags her helicopter tail the entire time. Although Shari is besotted and so calm with her parents and loves to lap up their affection.
As Shari is a city girl, she lives in an apartment where she has a balcony to enjoy and loves to scan the other apartment windows to see what’s going on in the lives of others.
Her parents, Stephen and Jordy have already experienced her GSOD (greyhound scream of death!) as they were patting her and running their hands over her when suddenly she lets out the scream. After lots of scans and checking over Shari, they soon realise it was because they stopped giving her the attention and pats.
You can follow along with Shari’s adventures on Instagram at sharshar.grey!
