About Italian Greyhound Rescue
Rescue is a 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.
IG Rescue members foster these orphans in their homes, where their health and temperament are evaluated. All dogs are taken for a veterinary check-up: vaccinations are updated, the animal is neutered/spayed and, if necessary, its teeth are cleaned. Each Italian Greyhound is evaluated so that it can be placed in a home suitable to both the dog and new owners.
Adopting a friend
The process to become approved for adoption includes an application, phone interview, and home visit. Once you are approved and if one of the fosters fits your lifestyle and needs as determined by the home visit, we will put in touch with the foster home where you will go to visit the dog. If we don't have a fit, we will put you on a matching list. The adoption fee is returned to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Fund to provide medical care for future rescue dogs.
