"We're IG Rescue and we're

passionate about saving dogs!"

 

 

Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation Inc. is a national club sponsored re-homing service provided for Italian Greyhounds that have been abandoned at animal shelters, taken from abusive homes or surrendered to Rescue due to the death or divorce of the former owner. Occasionally, dogs are turned over to Rescue because the owner can no longer keep the dog and the dog was acquired from a source to which it cannot be returned. 

 

 

 

Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation Inc. is an 501 c 3 nonprofit organization, we are an all- volunteer organization that foster these dogs in our homes, we are not a kennel or shelter. Our foster dogs are health and temperament evaluated the dogs are loved and treated as our own dogs. All dogs are taken for a veterinary check-up and when necessary, vaccinations are updated, neutered/spayed and its teeth are cleaned. Each Italian Greyhound is evaluated so that it can be placed in a home suitable to both the dog and the new owner.

 

 

 

IGCA Rescue is a club sponsored re-homing service provided for Italian Greyhounds that have been abandoned at animal shelters, taken from abusive homes or surrendered to Rescue due to the death or divorce of the former owner. Occasionally, dogs are turned over to Rescue because the owner can no longer keep the dog and the dog was acquired from a source to which it cannot be returned.

 

IGCA Rescue volunteers foster these dogs in their homes, where their health and temperament are evaluated. All dogs are taken for a veterinary check-up: when necessary, vaccinations are updated, the animal is neutered/spayed and its teeth are cleaned. Each Italian Greyhound is evaluated so that it can be placed in a home suitable to both the dog and the new owner.

 

Prospective adopters are required to fill out a short application and go through an interview process, including a home check. At the time of placement, the adoptee is required to sign a simple adoption contract. A $275 - $350 donation is requested at the time of placement. These donations are returned to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Fund to provide medical care for future rescue dogs.

 

Unfortunately, the number of Italian Greyhounds being placed through the Rescue is on the rise. Responsible, loving homes are always needed. Want to know more about rescue? Find a rep near you and contact them.
