Kathy- did you find fosters for all the Iggys? I did send an application to the national headquarters a couple of weeks ago... I really want to help- please let me know if I can. Thank you,

Greetings from IG Rescue:

Did you know that this year so far IGRF-NW has helped nearly 40 Italian Greyhounds move from uncertain situations to forever homes.  This is all made possible by our “village” of volunteers who foster, do home visits, transport, fundraise, plan events, and sew coats and jackets.  None of this would be possible without the help of our volunteers.  

At the end of last week, two young IGs came into rescue.  A few weeks before, several more IGs came in.  And this week, we need to help 5 more.  Our awesome volunteers always come through, but sometimes life gets in the way and they can’t help.  Several foster homes are contending with serious medical issues and are unable to foster right now. We are completely out of foster homes and will have to turn these little IGs away.

We’re writing to ask if you might consider a foster gig.  We know it’s hard to foster, and that perhaps the most difficult part is that you risk falling in love with your foster dog.  But the really cool part is that you help a dog move from an uncaring situation or uncertain future, to a new life.  Playing a role in that transformation makes the temporary sadness you may feel when your foster moves to his or her forever home incredibly worthwhile.

Please consider joining in and offering your home and your heart to help a little IG in need. 

Please remember:  We can only save as many IGs as we have foster spots available.
