Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Locally we are a group of around 10 volunteers who are in constant communication with other shelters and states. We are a group of iggy lovers who not only find loving homes for Italian Greyhounds, but also inform potential owners of the difficulties in addition to the benefits of owning IGs.
Prospective adopters are required to fill out an application, provide references and go through an interview process, including a home visit.....the visit is simply a social call to meet the family and other pets and to see the home environment....all of this helps us match the right dog to your situation and needs as well as theirs. We always strive for successful, permanent placements and in assessing your family and home we are better able to determine if a particular dog will 'fit' into your life based on their temperament and personality, which is to your advantage.
We require a donation with each adoption and the adoptee must sign a simple adoption contract. These donations are returned to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Fund to provide medical care for future rescue dogs. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and on preventative, teeth cleaned if necessary and any other medical concerns addressed. Vet records are provided and we reveal as much of the dogs history, personality and health as is known to us.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
