I am an IGCA Rescue Rep for Northern California. Some of you have adopted an Italian Greyhound from us. Right now we are in desperate need of foster homes for Italian Greyhounds in the SF and surrounding Bay Area.
We have been adopting dogs out, but they are coming in at a faster rate than we have applications to adopt or foster homes to care for them.
We are getting 2-3 calls or emails to pick up dogs every week. In the last 2 weeks we have been forced to turn away 3 dogs due to not having enough foster homes.
Just this past 1 week we got calls for a 5 year old male and a 7-8 month old female. We have another year old male coming in on Saturday.
I know fostering isn't always so easy, but it can be rewarding. So even
if you can only foster for a couple of weeks or even during the Thanksgiving week as a relief for some full time foster homes, anything at this point is appreciated and needed.
If you have ever considered or are interested in getting involved in rescue, now would be a great time. If you can offer any assistance short or long term - please contact me via email and I will get in touch with you.
