Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We primarily work with people in the Chicagoland area and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin. However, we have made exceptions for foster families and forever families in the past so please contact us if you find yourself with a strong connection to one of our rescued pups!
About Our Rescue Group:Rescue Our Mill Pups (ROMP) is a private rescue organization located in Chicago. We are a 100% no-kill, 100% volunteer, 100% foster, 100% donation based rescue group whose goal is to rescue as many otherwise 'discarded' dogs from puppy mills as possible, freeing them from the mill cycle and finding loving forever homes for each one. We also rescue dogs from kill shelters, those relinquished by their owners and strays.
No dog should spend its life living in a mill - especially not Italian Greyhounds who are among those who fare the worst under such conditions due to their soft, sweet dispositions and need to bond with their very own human companion. While our focus is Italian Greyhounds, you may see other breeds represented among our adoptable dogs from time to time simply because we could not leave them behind. While mill life is horrid, the dogs in those mills are not. They can be some of the sweetest, most loving dogs around. Please consider giving one a chance to live a normal, happy life.

Come Meet our Pets:We are a foster based rescue for which reason we do not have a central location. All pet meet and greets take place after adoption forms are completed so please fill out an adoption application if you are interested in one of our available pups. Upon completion, we will review and if it is a good fit, follow through with a reference check and setup a home visit for you to meet the pup!
Our Adoption Process:Italian Greyhounds are not for everyone. Please do your research before making the decision to make one a part of your family. If you feel that an IG would complement your lifestyle and that you could provide your IG with the patience and love it deserves, see the application link below.
Once the adoption application is completed and submitted for consideration, we will contact you to discuss adoption options further (usually 5-10 days). References are checked and a home visit prior to adoption is required.
Adoption fees vary based on breed and age, and an adoption contract is required.
