As a non-profit Italian Greyhound rescue (IG rescue) that includes IG mixes, Italian Greyhound Place welcomes dogs into foster care, provides them with veterinary care, and locates wonderful adopters for them.

The organization lists and highlights Italian Greyhounds and Italian Greyhound mixes that are in need of adoption, including those fostered by Italian Greyhound Place and those being rehomed by an owner with the assistance of Italian Greyhound Place. Free assistance is given to those looking for, or rehoming, an IG or IG mix.

In addition, Italian Greyhound Place provides Italian Greyhound breed information and resources, and insight on where to get, and where not to get, an Italian Greyhound, whether a puppy, adult, or senior.
