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
Are you looking for the pawfect companion? Meet 3 year old Kong, he’s a gorgeous black boy, sporting a formal tuxedo white chest and white toe socks (just like his brother King).
Kong is an incredibly sweet, happy go lucky kind of guy. He has been loving pet life in foster care and is now ready to start his next adventure with a forever home!
Kong really likes to be involved in life. His forever home will be with someone who is around a lot, that can take him to work or has another dog for him to chill out with. With gentle introductions, we believe Kong would enjoy a home with kids to play with.
Aside from being a total darling, Kong has an inquisitive nature, is very food motivated and is a very quick learner. During his time in care, Kong has mastered the sit command and stairs. He enjoys a daily stroll and is mostly good on the leash. Kong is still learning that cats and birds are friends not foe so is best suited to a home with large breed canine pals only, please.
We see Kong flourishing in a patient home with someone who is open to investing time into his development through further training. In return, you will be rewarded with a loving snuggle bug who will make you laugh with his playful antics.
Don’t snooze on this hunk, Kong is ready to take up residence in your home and heart.
If you think you could help Kong, please give IWaG a call on 0421 298 970.
Hounds in homes
Project 21 Spice girl Mel B has found her forever family and is officially adopted!
Mel B who is now Millie, is enjoying pet life alongside her new human siblings who are making her feel at home with many belly rubs. When she is happy, she makes her cheeks puff and it looks like she’s blowing bubbles.
Her new backyard is the place to be for zoomies and playtime. Millie’s enjoying new treats such as eggs and enrichment activities using egg cartons and high value treats. A favourite treat of Millies is a raw egg, including the shell!
“Millie has settled in well with her new family. She loves playing with her human sisters and is great with kids. She loves pats and if you stop, she'll tap you with her paw and boops you with her nose to request more. Millie has the most adorable eyes and can get pats out of anyone!” says Millie’s mum, Karen.
You can follow Millie and her family on Instagram at @Milliethe_greyhound
