Midwest Italian Greyhound Rescue serves seven states in the Midwestern United States, including Wisconsin, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Potential adopters fill out an application, and then a volunteer conducts a follow-up phone interview and in-home visit. The organization matches potential adopters with suitable dogs and puts adopters in touch with dogs' foster parents to ensure a good match.

Mid-Atlantic Italian Greyhound Rescue serves Delaware, Washington D.C., North Carolina, South Carolina and Maryland. Potential adopters begin by filling out an adoption application, and then a representative calls or emails to determine which dogs are a good match. After a home visit, potential adopters meet suitable dogs and complete the adoption if they find a match.

The Italian Greyhound Club of America Rescue Service accepts Italian Greyhounds whose owners must give them away due to death or divorce. It also rescues dogs from abusive homes. The dogs live in foster homes where volunteers evaluate their health and temperament. The dogs are spayed or neutered and have their vaccinations updated and teeth cleaned. Potential adopters fill out an application and pay a $275 to $350 donation that pays for medical care for future rescued dogs.
