Italian Greyhound Rescue Gulf Coast (IGCA)

Lutz, FL

Our Mission

The Italian Greyhound Rescue of the Gulf Coast is a non-profit 501c3 organization maintained entirely by volunteers of the Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation IGRF - Rescued dogs are held in foster homes throughout the Gulf Coast region (LA, MS, AL and FL States), until an appropriate home is found within our Gulf Coast region or a bordering state. We do not have a shelter where applicants can stop in, so please do your research to make sure this breed is a good fit then submit an application to get the adoption process started. We require you have an approved application with us prior to meeting any dogs. The dogs that come into rescue may be surrendered by their owners, stray, rescued from shelters in the region, or turned over by another rescue organization.

If you are new to the breed, or want to learn more about Italian Greyhounds, please review the information at to start your research process.

Adoption Policy

Please remember: Our organization relies solely on volunteers throughout the state, we do not have a physical shelter. Please be patient as we process your application, or answer your questions. It is best to enter the process with an open mind. Please apply before you get your heart set on a dog on the website. An applicant who has been approved prior to you may have been waiting for a dog just like the one you like! We want to make sure all of the dogs in our care find their perfect forever home!

A potential adopter must do some preliminary research; to be sure this is the right breed for their family. The information on this site is a good place to start. If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to contact us for more information at If you have decided that an Italian Greyhound is right for you, please submit an through our website at or by requesting an application via email to
