About Sighthound Rescue SA (SRSA):

Sighthound Rescue SA is run entirely by volunteers.  We do not employ any full time staff, and all funds raised are used exclusively for the care and rehoming of our dogs!

We are a registered NPO (159-730 NPO) that operates throughout South Africa to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome sighthounds.  Our dogs are primarily cared for in foster homes until permanent homes can be found, although they may be placed in high quality boarding kennels briefly while healthcare is undertaken and suitable foster or permanent homes are secured. When you adopt a dog from SRSA you can rest assured that your new best friend has been thoroughly checked for any health issues and treated if necessary, sterilized, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped.  In addition, because of the foster home approach, we have detailed knowledge of the characters, temperaments and special needs of all our dogs.  While in foster care the dogs are rehabilitated and socialized and they learn how to live in a normal home environment.  This ensures that everything possible has been done to make sure that they are ready to become a much-loved and happy part of your family. 

Please note that strict home checks, an adoption fee and terms and conditions apply when adopting one of our precious hounds. Take a look around and do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or would like to adopt or volunteer!
