PVIWC Rescue and Placement

The PVIWC has an active wolfhound rescue/placement program operating in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Our program was developed to find permanent new homes for IW's whose owners are no longer able to care for them, or found in shelters, or other temporary accommodations. We accept wolfhounds of any age.

We have complete medical workups done on all our dogs, and screen the new homes carefully to be certain the hounds will be well cared-for in their new lives. Medical care includes a physical, heartworm test and preventative, updated vaccinations and worming as appropriate, and spaying or neutering.

If you need to place a hound with us, for whatever reason, please contact the Rescue Chairman as soon as possible at 703-759-6316. We can arrange for pickup anywhere in Maryland, Virginia, or the District of Columbia.
