Current Rescues - January 2022
There are currently no whippet rescues with NCWFA Rescue. Please submit an application if you are interested in being placed on the wait list for our next rescue whippet.
A Note on Puppies & Rescues: There has been a huge uptick in interest in our breed, perhaps related to the phenomenon of "the Pandemic Puppy", perhaps just because the secret is out about the best dog breed ever. In any case, our Breeder Listing has seen an increase of 90% in traffic from pre-pandemic levels & all of our listed breeders are fielding between two and five inquiries a day. Long-planned litters that are on the ground now are spoken for many times over & breeders with Fall and Winter puppy plans have wait lists that are many potential owners deep. Bottom line, if you are interested in a whippet puppy, you will have to wait & maybe wait a long time. The situation is the same all over the US & Canada right now. The wait for adults will most likely even be longer. Rescue has seen the same uptick in applications & inquiries, while the number of dogs needing our help has shrunk, perhaps due to to the pandemic.
