Greyhounds make "greyt" pets

​Welcome to IWaG!

Greyhound Adoption, Education and Support

Queensland.

 

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 Harry!

Harry is a fun-loving black boy who’ll turn 5 years old in June. His foster Mum describes him as “an amazing dog” and “an absolute joy”.

While Harry enjoys walks along the Manly Esplanade, he also loves hanging out at home where he’s a professional couch potato. He’s a big teddy bear who will lean in to give greyhound hugs and sometimes thinks he’s a lap dog!

Harry is a charmer who likes joining his foster Mum on coffee shop outings, where he’s much admired and is happy for everyone he meets to stop and pat him. He’s been gentle with young children he’s met, but because of his size he’s probably better with children 8 and over as he make knock little ones down with his bounding enthusiasm.

Harry is being fostered as an only dog, however he has lived with other dogs his size and has reacted well with little dogs he’s met on walks, so with careful introductions may be small dog friendly.

Harry is not cat friendly.

 

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