World Greyhound Organisation
The World Greyhound Organisation (WGO) was formed to give all countries and their greyhounds a voice.
WGO will unite all countries under one umbrella to encourage development and understanding of the magnificent animal we call a greyhound.
We constantly hear about cruelty in many countries but do not hear about the people in these countries who care for their greyhounds and are trying to do the right thing. The World Greyhound Organisation will give these people as well as their greyhounds a voice and at the same time try to educate and change those that are not doing the right thing.
