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.

Better than expected. So helpful and quickly helped us found our new baby girl. Thank you so much to Scott for being so knowledgeable and helpful thru this process. We worked with the Georgia IGCA Rescues and Boroughs & Beyond IGCA Rescue NJ.

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.

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!
