Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation


Multiple people have reported an ongoing scam with a new website selling Italian Greyhound puppies and deposits being taken. If you find a website that you cannot verify the breeder, cannot video chat, are requested to wire money, send via money gram, or gift cards then IT IS LIKELY A SCAM.

Cash or Check Donations

Donating by cash or check is the easiest way to give to IG Rescue and ensures that 100% of your donation benefits the dogs compared to giving online (where a small percentage of the donation goes for processing fees or to credit card companies). We track our donations by area where they are given, so your donation can be credited to dogs being cared for locally.

Please specify in the notes section of your check which state affiliate should receive credit for your donation. We ask that all donations go to our national treasurer to reduce overhead on our local rescue representatives who are busying caring for dogs, checking applications and coordinating volunteers throughout the state. In addition, donations are credited faster to each state so they can be available in a more timely manner to use for local veterinary costs.

However, if you prefer to give a cash donation, please email a rescue representative for your state and make arrangements with them directly on how the donation can be made. No matter what method of giving you prefer, we appreciate every donation no matter what size.

  • Want to Double Your Donation?

    Many employers offer charitable matching programs as a benefit to their employees, and these programs are some of the most overlooked benefits offered today. Often upon providing documentation, employers will match 100% or a portion of any donation to the Italian Greyhound Rescue. Read more about Employer Matching Programs or Paycheck Contributions and how you may be able to take advantage of such offerings from an employer.
