Review for Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation Inc, Lima, NY, USA
I've been drawn to the idea of adopting a dog for over a decade. Over the last couple of years I've fallen in love with Italian Greyhounds and have researched their breed and dreamed about "some day." I have spent hours and hours online looking at adoptable IGs in several surrounding states and finally this summer decided the time was right. I filled out the adoption forms and enjoyed our home visit by one of the Lincoln IG rescue volunteers and met an older adoptable IG who we fell in love with. Our family was wanting a younger dog and I figured it'd be several months or maybe even a year before one was available. I was surprised to receive a call after only a couple of weeks saying that a young female was just received at a foster home. I went to visit her the very next day and my heart melted. I couldn't stop thinking about her! The foster family was amazing; very helpful and patient answering my questions and working with my schedule. The foster family took her to a vet who checked her health, cleaned her teeth and spayed her. Within only a week and a half or so of meeting her, we were able to bring our IG home with us to her 'forever home.' She has made the transition very well and we adore her!
My experience with the Lincoln IG Rescue has been extremely positive. The response time to my queries and application as well as the volunteer who conducted the home visit were all excellent. The foster family blew me away! Their care for our little IG as well as another foster dog in their home blessed me and inspired me.
I'm grateful to all the volunteers who make this possible for people like me to receive the benefit of a longed for forever friend!
