Reviews for Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation Inc
I adopted a wonderful Italian Greyhound from the Arizona rescue group. She is a joy and I am thrilled that the Arizona group is so loving and wonderful
My brother and I adopted two sweet Italian Greyhounds who have special needs. The Gulf Coast IG rescue went beyond what was expected of them. They were careful in determining if we were a good match for this breed by their detailed application questions, home visits and phone calls. We can't stop raving about this organizations dedication. As seniors, we appreciated the detailed health histories provided to us as it helped to assess our future expensives. We now have two sweet IG loving boys.
I saw Buddy on Petfinder while looking for a rescue for my daughter. Buddy is special needs and was available through IG Rescue in Dallas, Tx. I fell in love with him on first sight. I visited Buddy at his home with his foster parents who were very attentive. Knowing Buddy's puppy mill background and previous condition, I could tell he was well nurtured to prepare him for a forever home. They brought him to my home for a home visit and to see Buddy with his new sisters. They got along great and he is now a permanent member of my pack. IGRF is a great rescue service.
We are happy to tell everyone to adopt, their life will be changed forever. The process was smooth and so reassuring to see how much they care to make certain this is the right decision for both parties
IG rescue gulf coast has remained in touch with us and answered all our questions
We love Prancer so much and are glad to know his transition was from such a place of care and love...they're so great!
The IG rescue group in Phoenix AZ is great! The process from start to finish was efficient, friendly and very accommodating. We have the perfect dog for our family. Thanks to the group!
I have adopted two IG's, and fostering another. This organization is top notch! Everyone involved has the animals interest their number one priority. The love and caring they exhibit as they care for and try to find loving homes for the IG's is inspiring. My dogs have enhanced my life so much, and I have enjoyed my interactions with Dawn and others. This very special breed is lucky to have this rescue love them so much!
I first found Italian Greyhound Rescue by wanting to adopt! I've had my girl Paloma for 4 years now. I was so impressed with this recur foundation I've become a sponsor and a volunteer! Love my biggies, love their rescue foundation!
We just love our little Geno. The IG rescue was wonderful to work with. They gave us a lot of helpful information about the breed and also are very generous. We are now part of the IG community in our area and it's just wonderful. I highly recommend getting your IG from the rescue. It's worth it!
I cannot begin to express how life-changing adopting my Iggy (Kopi) has been. Coming home to his wagging tail, goofy smile, and unconditional love has improved the quality of my life considerably. I know it sounds cliche, but I cannot imagine what life would be like without an Italian Greyhound in it.
My search for an Iggy started over a year ago when my husband and I decided that we wanted a companion for our dog, Piper. I had researched the breed and knew that an Iggy would be the perfect addition to our family. I was determined to rescue, so I turned to the California Italian Greyhound Rescue. I got in touch with Roxann and completed the application process. I was ecstatic when she informed me that our application was approved! I took comfort in the fact that the IGCA took great care in matching IG's to the perfect home. Knowing that there is an organization out there dedicated to helping re-home Italian Greyhounds filled me with a restored faith in humanity.
Our entire experience adopting Kopi was wonderful. I thank the universe every day for bringing both dogs into my life, but I am especially grateful to Roxann and the IGCA for the role they played. I whole-heartedly support this organization and I can only hope that the search for my next Iggy will be with them.
We have been IG owners for nearly 20 years and have had 2 amazing rescue experiences with the Southern California IG Rescue Foundation, specifically Roxann. She is absolutely the best. When we lost our first IG after 12 loving years Roxann was able to find our grieving boy a new sister that he adored and his sister helped him through his loss (and ours). After we lost both IG's she found us the most amazing twins, they have truly been a godsend and healed our grieving hearts. We cannot say enough about the amazing and dedicated volunteers of Southern California Italian Greyhound Rescue.
