Wirehaired Vizsla Club
Celebrating 10 years of Protecting and Promoting the Wirehaired Vizsla
The Official AKC
Parent Club of the Wirehaired Vizsla
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.
Rusty and Poppy explore their new yard.
THANK YOU to Stacey and Kelly, in Sacramento, who've given these two sweet dogs a loving forever home!!
Rusty and Poppy are doing so well at making the adjustment from being ranch dogs who lives outside all the time, to living inside. It looks like they're learning the finer aspects of being pampered pooches and learning how to be couch potatoes sometimes, too!
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.
Rescue operations put a very great strain on our limited rescue funds and wouldn't even be possible without the generosity of some very special people.
The good news is you can help, too, just by getting your dog a new collar or toys, or a canine T-shirt for yourself!
Please take a look at the wonderful merchandise at Helping Udders, who donate a percentage of your purchase to our rescue fund.
Order a new collar and leash, an "Udder tug", or a "rescue ribbon" for your car , any of the great toys, or one of the cute T-shirts from Helping Udders (and they have a lot of cool stuff!)
and 10-50% of your purchase will go to
Wirehaired Vizsla Rescue of America.
