Italian Greyhound Club of America

Welcome To Italian Greyhound Club of America

Our mission is to preserve and protect the unique qualities of our breed and to share our knowledge with others. We hope this web site is helpful to you.

We are a member club of the American Kennel Club. The IGCA is what is known in the dog world as the "parent" or "National breed" club for Italian Greyhounds.

In addition to educating the public about the breed, two of the IGCA's main functions are rescue and health research. Be sure to check out our merchandise offerings and use our affiliated vendors so we can continue to fund these worthwhile projects.
