About Our Rescue Group:

Italian Greyhound Rescue is an organization that receives Italian Greyhound puppies and adult dogs who have been turned in for various reasons with housebreaking issues and "not knowing the breed" being at the top. Italian Greyhounds are typically, very sensitive and 'needy', they want to connect to their owners and be part of their lives....if the dog is unhappy and misunderstood, the owner will also be unhappy.

We are dedicated to helping any and every Italian Greyhound that needs our assistance.

Our Adoption Process:

To outline our adoption program, we require a fenced yard in most cases, the dog must be an indoor pet and a member of the family and you must have time to give the dog the attention it requires and deserves.

Prospective adopters are required to fill out an application, provide references and go through a brief 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 of $250 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 of our Italian Greyhounds (including the puppies) are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm and on preventative, teeth cleaned if necessary and any other medical concerns addressed as determined by a veterinarian. 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.
