Whippet Rescue and Placement, Inc.


WRAP is a 501(c)(3) charity devoted to the rescue of pure-bred Whippets. The organization operates exclusively in the United States of America.

WRAP rescue includes pickup from owners or animal welfare facilities, assessment of the Whippet’s suitability as a pet, providing health care and training as needed and appropriate, qualification of prospective homes, placement, follow-up, and, if a placement fails, recovery into WRAP.


Please see the Donate page or contact our Treasurer for tax-deductible donation information.

WRAP is an all-volunteer organization

We have volunteers all across the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii. Our volunteers are compassionate, caring, generous individuals who donate their time to further the safety of our beloved breed. As a result of their efforts, there are very few Whippets in rescue and there is always a waiting list for adoptable dogs. Fill out the adoption application to have first consideration for any dogs that become available.

If no rescue whippets are available in your area you may want to browse the American Whippet Club’s listing of reputable member-breeders located throughout the country.
