WRAP Rescuers
(Updated 06/27/2014)

Adoption Application - - PDF Format - print and mail to the WRAP Rescuer nearest you
E-mail Application - - Copy and paste into an e-mail, fill in the blanks, and send to the WRAP Rescuer nearest you

If you are interested in adopting a whippet or have one to surrender, contact the rescuer nearest you. Please allow at least 48 hours for a response before contacting another rescuer. Remember that WRAP volunteers are just that: volunteers! They have jobs, families and lives outside of rescue, so may not be able to respond to inquiries immediately. If you have not heard back from any rescuer in your state after a week, contact the regional advisor (the last listing under each state). This roster is kept current; if you find an address bouncing or a phone out of order, please let the regional advisor know.

WRAP members are networked and share information about the dogs available, so you don't have to contact all the rescuers in your state. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, click on the adoption application above, print it out, and mail the completed form to your nearest rescuer. If there is no mailing address listed, email or phone the rescuer to ask for it. You can also fill out the email application instead, though you'll need to provide a signed copy before a rescue dog can be released to you. To use the e-mail form, copy and paste it into an e-mail, and send the application to the rescuer nearest you.

Remember to check out our Homes Needed page for whippets currently available. If you'd like more information about one of those dogs, call or email the rescuer indicated.

WRAP Membership Roster
Click on your state. If it is not listed, WRAP has no rescuers there...just click on a neighboring state to find your nearest rescuer, or contact the Regional Advisor listed for that state.
