Italian Greyhound Club of America Rescue

roanoke Animal Shelter

13493 Henrietta Creek Road
roanoke, Texas 76262
The Italian Greyhound Club of America was founded in 1954 and consists of serious IG breeders, exhibitors and other aficionados all over the United States who are interested in learning as much as possible about the Italian Greyhound and helping to dispense that information to the general public, along with some of the love they share with this charismatic little dog.

Like other national breed clubs, the IGCA is not really a "club" in the manner most people think of clubs. The IGCA exists mainly to further the best interests of the breed. We organize and present specialty shows in different parts of the country; plan educational programs for breeders, judges and other fanciers; sponsor research on genetic and other health problems; distribute breed information to newcomers to IG's and to those who want to know about our dogs; maintain a breed rescue organization and attempt to establish a network of ethical, responsible breeders to whom inquiries can be referred. On occasion a need arises for possible change in the breed standard, at which time the national breed club, with the input of its members, becomes the final decision maker as to whether or not there should be a change. Prospective members must have three years involvement with Italian Greyhounds, be in good standing with the AKC, and have the sponsorship of two current members in good standing.
