The Irish Wolfhound Association of the Mid South (IWAMS) was initially organized in 1992 by Joe & Donna Pitt, Steve & Karen Levan, Art & Linda King, Donna Brown and Bambi Rabe. Many of our foundation members are still actively involved in the club to this day. This provides our members with a depth of history and a wealth of information about the breed. In 2009 IWAMS was incorporated as a 501(c)7 nonprofit in 2009. IWAMS was formed to support the Irish Wolfhound community in North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. our goals are to educate on the health and welfare of Irish Wolfhounds, promote responsible breeders focused on producing healthy and structurally correct Irish Wolfhounds.

  • Provides rescue and placement for Irish Wolfhounds in our region of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and currently also in our neighboring states of Florida and Georgia.
