We are a group of rescue volunteers located in areas throughout the US and Canada that assists owners who no longer are able to care for their Irish Wolfhound. We also provide an adoption policy that assures your Irish Wolfhound will find a loving, permanent, and safe home.
The primary mission of the Irish Wolfhound Club of America Rescue Committee is to support the dedicated individuals and organizations, listed in the National Rescue Directory, who rescue Irish Wolfhounds in need of a permanent home.
All rescue volunteers use rescue documentation, premise and reference check adoptive homes, and spay/neuter if the hound is age and health appropriate. Many have a list of pre-approved and often Irish Wolfhound-experienced homes waiting to adopt.
Additionally, the IWCA has agreed to provide reciprocal cooperation with the UK Irish Wolfhound Club, through our IWCA Rescue Chair, in assessing homes for breeders who are contemplating shipping their puppies from overseas.
If you are considering adopting a rescued Irish Wolfhound, our volunteers will be happy to discuss availability and explain how their rescue program works.
Please help us protect the breed by keeping rehoming ads off the internet and social media.
For assistance, please contact a state rescue volunteer (listed below) or the National Rescue Chair.
