In 2003, WHVCA Rescue was created in response to several WHV or possible WHVs in shelters. As a rare breed, they don't turn up in shelters often, although occasionally a dog is relinquished to our club's Rescue by the owner. We defines a "rescue" as a WV from various types of shelters, a stray, an abandoned dog, or a dog whose owners can no longer care for it. WHVCA Rescue is dedicated to the welfare of such Wirehaired Vizslas. Rescue program workers are volunteers, and give their time, effort, expertise, and often their own resources to help WHV in need. WHV Rescue is supported entirely by donations. We always appreciate donations of funds, supplies, and services.

Dogs in the rescue program are spayed, neutered, and their temperament evaluated before placement into a new home. In addition, all applicants wishing to adopt through the rescue program are carefully screened by experienced Rescue volunteers (Wirehaired Vizsla owners, breeders, and trainers.) A detailed questionnaire, interview process and home check are all part of this screening process. The adoption fee is $200 and helps pay our veterinary expenses. 

If you are familiar with this wonderful breed and think that adopting a dog through rescue might be an option for you, or if you know of a Wirehaired Vizsla in need, please contact us.

HAPPY ENDING!
These two Wirehaired Vizslas from Southern California have a new, forever home in Northern California!   We want to give special thanks to the volunteers and helpers in CA who helped us with these dogs, picking them up and giving them a foster home and helping with their placement.



THANK YOU Stacy & Kelly in Sacramento who have given these two sweet dogs a loving forever home!
Rusty & Poppy are doing so well at making the adjustment from being ranch dogs to wonderful house dogs.  It looks like they are learning the finer aspects of becoming a couch potatoes!
