The Borzoi community is fortunate to have a low rate of dogs needing rescue and excellent homes waiting to adopt them. Any web site or organization offering a large number of rescue Borzoi should be researched thoroughly if you are considering acquiring a dog from them. In addition, there are now quite a few 'pets for profit' organizations here in California and nation-wide. These organizations often incorporate the word 'rescue' into their company names and marketing materials, and their fees are typically very high compared to legitimate rescue groups.
We wish to help potential owners discern 'pets for profit' from true breed and all-breed rescue organizations. Click on our links for the Borzoi Rescue organizations outside our geographic area. Please feel free to contact us for background information on any other organization which may be offering Borzoi as rescues.
