Our beautiful 15 year old blue and white IG Misty died from mast cell cancer in March 2015. I could not begin to imagine how lost we would continue to feel after that sad time. We finally took the step to adopt in August 2016, and found ourselves under Lincoln IG Rescue's umbrella. Lincoln's primary rep, Scott, was very responsive from the outset. This was an entirely new adventure for us, and we learned much over the months of waiting thanks to him. Lincoln IG rescue is a very careful, caring organization, much attuned to the needs of the waiting dogs and the hearts of potential adopters. Our local rep, Rebecca, visited to ensure our home was safely prepared for a new addition. When we finally were notified in December that a little 4-year old fawn was waiting for us in the Trenton, NJ, area, we immediately made plans to drive there from our Pittsburgh home. She was worth every waiting moment and every long mile. We have named her Ivy. She is loving and sweet, and is super cuddly. In addition to Scott's very professional and personal touch, I need to commend Kaylee (and Sill) for their commitment to opening their home and fostering so lovingly. Ivy is thriving because of them. What assets to the IG rescue community. We will be forever grateful to all involved.

Love this rescue... we adopted our little iggy from here and it was such an easy process!
It was very evident that the dog was well cared.
He was very loving from the start we had little to no adjustment period with him.
Placement occurred rather quickly - I expected to be waiting a few months....

Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation helped us find a new addition to our family. They are very thoughtful when choosing a family for a rescued greyhound, communicate clearly, and are always available for questions after the adoption. I would highly recommend this team of committed and generous people. Our new addition is Kobe, and our lives will never be the same.

I couldn't be more pleased with the people and experience I have had with this group! The incredible work they do not only in rescue and placement, but also in outreach and follow-up is phenomenal!
They are a nationwide group and I feel lucky as a resident of Washington to have been touched by their important work.

I adopted an Iggy from the Northwest IG rescue this summer and it was a fantastic experience. They were very supportive and made the transition very smooth for him and us! Thanks!

It was a wonderful experience of adopting my iggy through the IGRF. They are very professional, informative about the breed but most of all caring abut their dogs! They review applications carefully and make sure their pupils find loving home.

Our IG,Ricco.,broke his right leg just above his wrist. We were devasted. We called Scott, he told us about an awesome vet in Souix City, Ia. Everything went great. Ricco, is back to running and sniffing out varmits. Thank you to the Ne. I G rescue.

Recently my full-size greyhound, Cayenne, and I were fortunate enough to work with IG Rescue Texas and to welcome Isaac into our home. I've worked with several rescue groups and even been on the Board of one over the past 25+ years and want to say that I am very favorably impressed with this organization. They did a great job of vetting me, fostering Isaac and overseeing the transition from his foster home into mine. Everyone I talked and worked with was kind as well as professional (on-time, kept appointments, etc.). They do a fantastic job and have my full support.

I have had the pleasure of adopting two beautiful Iggy's from IGCA Rescue of Texas. The adoption process itself with seamless, and they were always timely in their communications with me when an inquiry was made. Tammy fostered both of my babies, now Pika and Incy, and she was a wealth of knowledge that helped me ensure that their transition to my home was as easy as possible. I would highly recommend IGCA to anyone that is looking to add another Iggy furbaby to their home. I know that this was my first experience with them, but it will not be my last.

I was very fortunate that Italian Greyhound Rescue Hawaii IGCA was recommended to me when I decided to adopt a rescue dog. Right from the very first contact, the organization provided me with information and advice about IGs that helped me understand the breed and make an informed decision. The thoroughness of their research and level commitment to insuring the best adoption situation for both IG and potential IG homeowner was most impressive. Since I adopted Charlie, the continued caring support for both of us has been awesome. We are indeed a lucky pair.
I was told by local dog owners that Italian Greyhound Rescue Hawaii was one of the best animal advocate organizations in the Islands, and now, having adopted through them, I am in total agreement. Hawaii is very fortunate to have this wonderful organization.
