Texas Italian Greyhound Rescue is a small group of six people, plus fosters and volunteers, that rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Italian Greyhounds, Whippets, and an occassional mixed sight hound. The work that this small group does, on a strictly volunteer and dontation funded group is phenominal. My husband and I started off as a foster home and enjoyed the work so much that we devote most of our free time as volunteers. On average we have 5 fosters in our home at one time. IGs are the most amazing companion animals and really lift our spirits on a daily basis.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

rehabilitating rescued dogs and finding them the prefect forever homes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a dozen more foster homes and volunteers, and get the donations rolling in.
