If you are no longer able to care for your Irish Wolfhound
Please contact our Rescue Coordinator (see left) to discuss all
we can do to help you and your hound.
We have excellent pre-approved homes that are Veterinarian reference checked, personal reference checked, premise checked, and often are Irish Wolfhound experienced, waiting to provide a loving, safe, and responsible home.
In addition, the owner of an Irish Wolfhound that comes through IWAMS rescue is eligible for a grant from the Irish Wolfhound Foundation (www.iwfoundation.org/iwfrescue.html) if they experience a
major veterinary expense with your Irish Wolfhound that creates a financial burden.
Our priority and commitment is to the safety, comfort, and well-being of
your beloved hound and we place yours with as much care, love, and
due diligence as our own.
