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.

One of the best ways to help support IWaG is by making a regular monthly donation. Because of your generosity, we can plan confidently and budget more effectively. Donations $2 and over are tax-deductible and we will provide you with an annual receipt summary for your tax purposes. Check out our Regular Giving page here to find out more!

Hound of the Month



Johnny is an affectionate 4 year old black boy who needs a new foster home.

Johnny is a fast learner who has already mastered the stairs, waits politely for his dinner and walks well on the lead.  He has a beautiful nature that gives everyone he meets a big cuddle and the greyhound lean.

Sadly, this sweet boy is struggling to relax and adapt to pet life and he isn't coping when left alone.

Johnny needs a special foster home where he has a predictable routine with at least one adult, or dog savvy older teenager, is home all the time, or a family member, friend or neighbour can dog sit if all members of the home need to go out.

IWaG will provide ongoing training through Fellowship of the Paws - Dog training.
Johnny would be best without young children or other pets for now as we help him gain confidence and independence.

If you can help Johnny please contact IWaG a call on 0421 298 970 or complete the adoption enquiry form.

Hounds in homes


Gentle boy Barney has found his forever home!


Bringing joy to his new home, Barney’s forever human Paula describes him as very energetic, a lover of toys, an expert in roaching, excellent company in the car and a gentleman on the lead.

Barney has gotten straight to work helping to heal Paula’s broken heart from the loss of her previous beloved hound. Paula says, “Barney is not shy at all, he walked into the house and made himself right at home, like he had been here for years. I slept on the couch to keep him company and I woke up in the middle of the night with something heavy on me. It was Barney! I love him so much. He has brought joy into my life. Thank you everyone for giving me Barney.”
