Circle of Caring



Over the past 10 years the numbers of dogs entering IGCA Rescue has increased dramatically. In 2016 over 900 IGs are projected to enter the program ... so we are well on the way to 1,000. Every dog is provided with an evaluation by experienced Rescue Reps, veterinary care if necessary (and that care is usually necessary), spay/neuter, and a collar and leash. Most of these dogs ultimately are placed in loving homes. Dogs benefit and people benefit. The canine gift of love is unconditional and forever. Dog lovers understand that we owe our dogs a debt that can never be repaid. One of the few things that we can do is to make a permanent commitment to helping their kind.

With the current weak economy Rescue expenses have increased beyond income. It would be so great if Rescue could count on a steady revenue each month to help these little guys in need. Therefore we are asking that you consider joining the IGCA Circle of Caring by donating just $5, $10 or $20 or $50 per month through your paypal or credit card account by making an ongoing donation per month .....more good things will happen than you could ever imagine! After clicking on the donate button you will be directed to the PayPal site. You can sign up via PayPal or by clicking on the Credit Card link on that page. You will be making a positive difference in the lives of these little dogs that you love so much. And your kindness will be recognized. The names of all donors (except those who do not wish to be listed) will be placed below in the IGCA Circle of Caring. However, all donors will be listed regardless of donation amount. We hope that most of you choose to be listed. This will encourage others to join. When people visit the IGCA website we want them to know that IG lovers are special people with real character and caring. And we want them to know that there are A LOT OF US who love this this breed. All donations to IGRF are tax-deductible. The Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation, Inc. is a 501c(3) corporation.

The dogs of Italian Greyhound Rescue are in need and they quite literally have no one else. Dog lovers are the finest people in the world. We have hearts and we care about a species other than our own. Join the ranks of Italian Greyhound lovers everywhere. Please join me in supporting the IGCA Rescue Circle of Giving.
