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

Meet Xena!

This little warrior princess is looking for a special forever home.

At 3 years old, Xena is affectionate and inquisitive. Due to anxiety, Xena would best fit a home where she can lap up all of the attention as an only dog and with humans who are around most of the time. IWaG has partnered with Ruff Diamonds Dog Services to provide Xena with ongoing remote specialist separation anxiety training which we will happily supply through the adoption process until Xena is settled.


You can find more out about Xena on our 'Adopt' page.  

Hounds in homes


Robert, Bobby, Bob dog, Big ears, Long dog. These are just a few of Bob's nicknames!

He is a sweet, cheeky boy who continues to surprise his Mum & Dad with new funny traits as he settles into his home. They have found that when he is happy, Bob will let out crackly gurgles and if you scratch behind his ears in *just* the right spot he will produce deep groans of satisfaction.

Bob’s favourite pastimes include going to local parks for his morning walks, taking long car rides on the weekends and landscaping his backyard.
