Italian Greyhound Rescue

IG Rescue - Adopt a Friend for Life!

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life the aching,
or cool one pain
or help one fainting Robin
unto his nest again,
I shall not
Live in vain.

~Emily Dickenson


About Time Italian Greyhound Rescue
Our rescue is about the dog, and only the dog.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our rescue program. Since we began working with rescues years ago, even BEFORE we began breeding, we have quietly helped many dogs (IGs and many other breeds) in need. It is sometimes a very costly process to rescue and rehabilitate an IG in need, and find a loving home to adopt and care of it for the rest of its life, but one to which we are completely dedicated to.

The IG community is relatively small, as there are not a large number of these precious dogs in our country. Because there are such negative connotations to the word "rescue", About Time Italian Greyhound Rescue has chosen to provide this service on a confidential basis. There is no blame, no condemnation, and no disgrace ever assigned to anyone who asks for assistance with their IG or IGs. There is only help.

Many times the word rescue does not really apply. We receive some IGs who are quite healthy, in good flesh and just need a place to live in retirement or simply need a new family to love and care for them. This process is more of a placement service for people who love this breed and their dog, and simply want the best for their IGs.

It should be noted that we do not become involved in forced rescue. That is accomplished by different legal entities in each state. We will assist only when asked. (We can provide a referral if a situation warrants.)

Please do not be ashamed if you need to give up your IG or if you know someone who wants to. This breed is not for everyone and sometimes a new situation in the home makes it stressful for the family and the dog. If you do not have the time or patience, or need to place your dog for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to try to help you work through the problem, help you place the dog, or take the dog into our rescue program until it can be placed. Sometimes we ask for a donation if the dog needs to be spayed or neutered or needs its shots, but (even if you can't) no dog is refused.

If you can no longer care for or meet the needs for your IG let us know and we will do our best to assist you.All efforts are confidential.

We also volunteer and work with local rescue groups, shelters, and humane associations in our area.
Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted IG's. To find suitable homes for adoptable dogs, and to provide care and a safe haven to dogs in need.
