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.

Estate Planning Gifts

Gifts to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation made as part of estate planning, are a wonderful way to recognize the charities that are important in your life. Some people simply choose to leave a specific amount of money, while others specify a percentage of funds that should be donated to a charity or non-profit organization.

We recommend that you define the exact charities of importance to you specifically in your will, so that relatives are not left guessing which they feel would be most representative of your wishes. It is also important to select charities who utilize your gift to the fullest extent, to benefit the end-result of those causes, and avoid those who spend excessive money on marketing, salaries and bonuses, or other "overhead" expenses. We are a transparent organization and want you to be fully informed about how donations to our group are used annually. Therefore, our annual financial reports are available for public review.

The following information should help provide your financial planner, attorney or others the information required to bequest a gift to the Italian Greyhounds in foster homes throughout the country.
