Greyhounds make "greyt" pets
Welcome to IWaG!
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
Since moving from Lismore, Melanie and Lexi are settling into pet life and eagerly awaiting their forever home. As a duo, the girls politely take turns being playful, with Lexi being a morning girl and Melanie coming to life in the afternoons. The pair are looking for a home where they can go for a trot in the morning, squeezing a few zoomies into the afternoon.
Since moving to their foster parents, Lexi has found confidence in adjusting to life as a pet, and Mel has mastered the stairs.
Big sister Lexi is gentle and affectionate, eager to please her foster parents. At first, she may appear shy, but it won’t be long until she becomes your shadow. Lexi doesn’t mind watching her taller half play with her toys as the day goes by. She understands that she shouldn’t counter surf or dig in her bed; however, she is a little more stubborn regarding commands like staying still.
Melanie,her adventurous partner in crime, is the little sister. She is the adventurous one who likes to see how cheeky she can get by snuggling into small spaces to sit next to you. Sometimes Mel attempts to test the boundary by scoping out available slippers to add to her collection. However, she is a clever girl who responds well to a stern ‘Melani!’ if she steps out of line.
If you are looking for a duo to add to your family and you enjoy pats and snuggles, Lexi and Melanie could be the hounds you’ve been waiting for.
If you want to know more about the girls, please give IWaG a call on 0421 298 970 or complete the adoption enquiry form.
Hounds in homes
Sweet little Minnie girl has foster failed and is now officially in her forever home! Congratulations on your adoption Minnie.
When Minnie first arrived at her foster to adopt home, she had just been in special care, as she had most of her teeth removed. After having teeth removed, Minnie was also desexed. This incredible senior girl took both in her stride and is loving life post surgeries.
Minnie is loving having a big backyard to run, play and dig in! Her days are mostly spent either in the backyard or keeping Mum company by napping nearby.
“She LOVES her food even without teeth. We walk most days weather permitting. Sleeps all night in her bed beside mine. Minnie loved her petting and brushes, a quiet and relaxed girl” says Mum, Relma.
