Are you an Indiana resident keen on adopting and caring for a whippet?
Then naturally, you are going to need to be aware of all of the whippet rescues in the state.
Well, I decided to pull together a directory of all the potential options, whether whippet rescue specific or general dog shelters that have been known to have this fantastic and gentle breed.
So, let’s take a look at them!
Whippet Rescues In Indiana
The state of Indiana is currently not home to any rescue shelter that only takes in whippets.
To find a whippet, you’re going to need to look for a rescue that takes in various breeds, or operates across states.
Whippet Rescue and Placement, Inc.
Consider reaching out to Whippet Rescue and Placement, Inc.
They work across the entire breadth of the United States, and may have a whippet available at the time of your search.

IndyHumane has been helping stray cats and dogs find loving homes since 1905. Their work in the community has been outstanding. Go ahead and approach them to see if they have whippets that you can adopt.

Southern Indiana Animal Rescue
Southern Indiana Animal Rescue is different from your typical rescue organization because they don’t have a dedicated facility.
Instead, the dogs in their care are placed in personal foster homes.
Since the dogs already have experience staying in homes, it may be easier for you to accommodate them inside your residence.
They may have your whippet; so give them a call.

The loving whippet you want to welcome into your home may currently be residing in one of these rescue shelters in Indiana.
While it’s true that there are no specific whippet rescues in the state, don’t let this deter you or put you off.
Many dog-general shelters have whippets from time to time. They also have contacts or may be aware of where you may be able to find one.
So absolutely get in contact, make some enquiries and even visit some of these rescues.
The sooner you do, the sooner you will be to getting that loving dog you always wanted.
Hello. I’m Luke- the founder of WhippetCentral. I’m somewhat of a whippet nut and have been for most of my life. In that time, I’ve owned and raised numerous whippets. Bonnie is my latest girl; she is currently eight years old and keeps me very busy! Understanding the need for whippet-specific content, I decided to create this blog to share what I have learned and to share my expertise regarding owning and raising whippets – the right way!
