I.W. Rescue & Adoption (SIWRA)
SIWRA is a formal network of breed rescue volunteers in GA and
FL, who assist in all areas of IW rescue. Our goal is to ensure that every needy Irish
Wolfhound is placed in a loving, responsible and reliable home.
The adoption process begins with a written application form that
must first be on file-followed by reference checks and in-home visits that help us match
each hound with the pre-approved home that will best meet his or her needs. Every adoption
is covered by a formal adoption agreement, to ensure the lifetime well-being and happiness
of each hound.
Our network of rescue volunteers also works to provide
general breed information, educating the public about this giant breed and promoting and
fostering responsible dog ownership. Breeding and placement practices is another integral
part of SIWRA's efforts. We also coordinate efforts with other recognized IW rescue
orgaizations throughout the country and our organization assists out-of-state breeders who
are considering shipping an IW puppy to a home in our area, by arranging premise checks on
behalf of the breeder, to help ensure responsible puppy placements.
