TEXAS ITALIAN GREYHOUND RESCUE INC
December 30, 2010

As a local group of folks (including those in Houston and other Texas towns), I find that they have a dedication and drive to save the Italian Greyhounds that rivals none.
Once you get one of these little guys into your home, you will totally understand why they are so loved.
The hardest part is dealing with one which has been abused or used as breeding stock, locked up all day and night in a cage, averse weather conditions and no human compassion.... it's a wonder they ever come around to loving and trusting someone again.
The sadness we feel in turning over a iggie to a new home is compensated by the fact we gave them a second chance at living and being loved as well as seeing the joy on the face of the new family as they cuddle with their new found addition.
Unfortunately in this day and age, our foster homes are not long for being empty, too many owner surrenders due to family or financial issues keeps us busy.

The Great!

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

fostering and rehoming Beau & Bella, Dino & Bella, Ruby and currently foster several Iggies now.

Ways to make it better...

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

win a lottery and build new homes for familys who foster, creating a perfect atmosphere for the family, the iggies and the community, dog parks and national/regional campaign for awareness.
