The Ohio Italian Greyhound Rescue is a non-profit 501c3 organization maintained entirely by volunteers of the Italian Greyhound Club of America (IGCA). Rescued dogs are held in foster homes throughout Ohio, until an appropriate home is found in Ohio or a bordering state. We do not have a shelter where applicants can stop in, so please do your research to make sure this breed is a good fit then submit an application to get the adoption process started. The dogs that come into rescue may be surrendered by their owners, stray, rescued from shelters in the region, or turned over by another rescue organization.
We do not have a shelter or central location. Foster families all over the state offer the dogs in their care a second chance. Their health and behavior are evaluated, and treated as needed. Generally, a trip to the vet for a few shots and a check-up, and a brush up on housetraining is all a dog needs to be ready for a brand new forever home. Any special needs or quirks that foster or rescue become aware of while a dog is with us will be fully disclosed to a potential adopter, we make every effort to ensure a dog is a good match for an adopter.
The weather is getting cold and people are seeing more potty relapses. Check out our potty training info. Keep your dog on track and keep your dog!
If you want to meet some IGs or talk to one of our volunteers before you jump feet first into adopting or volunteering, check us out at one of the events we plan to attend! We have posted our new events calendar in the Community tab.
