Adopt Us!



The dogs available for adoption on our site will only be placed in the following States:
CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, and VT.

The adoption donation varies depending on the dog's age:
• Under 6 months - $350
• 7 months to 2 years - $325
• 3 years to 8 years - $300
• Over 8 years - $275 or discretion of Area Coordinator

Please review our "What We Do" page to learn how we get our rescues, learn about IG's and their characteristics, and learn about the adoption process. We would like to remind potential adopters that IG's are playful well into their teens and can easily live to be 14-16 yrs old, some even older! We have wonderful older iggies looking for homes. Please consider meeting one or a pair of them in person so you can see how wonderful they can be!

If you are a couple that is contemplating having children in the near future or if you currently have a young a child, please be sure that you are aware than an IG demands a lot of attention and can be very fragile. If you are interested in adopting, please be sure that your child is well behaved and understands that they need to be gentle with the dog.

If you are thinking of adopting an IG, please know that 95% of these guys/gals are BED BUGS, they prefer to sleep in bed and under the covers because unlike many other breeds they crave warmth and body heat, they are snuggle bugs to the max! If you prefer that your dog sleep elsewhere, please consider adopting a different breed as it may take several months before we get an IG in rescue that would be okay with not sleeping in bed. We MUST have your application in hand prior to having any discussions on specific dogs due to the increased volume of inquiries on our adoptable dogs.

The application can be printed from the link at the top of this page and must be completed and faxed or emailed with attention to ONE of the following people:

We often have a list of approved homes waiting for dogs, so there are some IGs that don't make it onto our website. If you've researched the breed and think a rescued dog is for you, please submit an application, even if there is not a dog on our website in which you are interested. We may have more dogs in our rescue program than what are found on our site.


Bella and Lola

Meet Bella (seal and 11 yrs old) and Lola (fawn and 9 yrs old). These girls are inseparable. When they are not together they look for each other. They are both pee pad trained but will also go outside to do their business. Like most Italian Greyhounds neither of them barks very often and they both like to sleep in bed at night with their owner. They have their own bed as well and Bella will stay in there most of the day while her foster mother is at work. Lola prefers napping on the couch but also enjoys her bed. Although both of these girls are curious with new people, Lola being a bit shy has Bella take the lead on checking them out. Lola can get a bit of a nervous tummy, but once she settles into her new forever home she will be just fine. Bella and Lola will make a wonderful addition to anyone’s home. Please consider making them yours!

Bella and Lola belong to IGRF and is being fostered in MA.

Joey is very sweet and well behaved, 8 year old Italian Greyhound. He loves to snuggle up to his people under blankets, he is very playful, he knows lots of commands, and he listens very well! He does seem to need the aid of a belly band during the day, but at night he sleeps in a crate without the belly band, and so far has been accident free. He can be stubborn about doing his business outside, like most iggies and may need some prompting ("go pee!"). Joey loves to go on walks/hikes! And is a great listener! He gets along great with other dogs and cats, and loves to play with them. Joey does have seizures but they are well controlled with medications that he takes easily with a small piece of ham or turkey twice a day. We have not seen him have any seizures since coming into rescue several weeks ago. Joey is neutered and is up to date on vaccines.

Joey belongs to IGRF and is being fostered in NH. The adoption donation for Eddy is $175.

Meet Rocky, a twelve year old fawn gentleman. Rocky is a quiet little guy and gets along with all the animals in his foster home. He ignores both the birds and bunny’s even when they are out of their cages. Rocky is very food motivated therefore he cannot be free fed and will need to have a structured feeding schedule. He is an active boy but also enjoys napping in his crate when the door is left open. He is up to date on all shots and will be having a dental done in the near future. Rocky has a lot of love to give to the right family.

Rocky belongs to IGRF and is being fostered in MA. The adoption donation for Rocky is $100.
