The CWVC Rescue is powered by volunteers. Our Rescue Coordinator will review adoption applications when they are submitted and add the application information into our database. We will reach out to you if a dog within our program might be a good fit for your family.

Rescue is very rewarding work and gives you a chance to give back to the community and help those dogs who just need a second chance in life. For more information or to volunteer, please contact the Rescue Coordinator.

Who's Available

Thank you for your interest in adopting a Vizsla! Rescue Vizslas make wonderful pets and adjust well to their new families. Vizslas are active dogs that often act like "puppies" until they are three or more years old. We highly recommend adopting an adult, housebroken Vizsla for working couples or families with children.

Before placing a rescue in a forever home, all shots are brought up to date, and all immediate medical needs are addressed. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Vizslas coming from an animal shelter environment may spend several days in quarantine as an extra precaution against contagious illness or temperament problems.

Important Information:

  • If you are interested in adopting, please complete the adoption application to help match the best dog for you/your family. Filling out an adoption application does NOT guarantee you will get a dog through the program.
  • Many of our applicants wait quite a long time for a dog. If you are looking for specific qualities, that can also lengthen the time to find a dog to fit in with your family. 
  • Many people desire females over males. If you only want a female, examine your reasons closely. Many times people want females because they feel they are more trainable, more affectionate, etc. That is not true in Vizslas. Talk to a "Vizsla person" before you rule out getting a male dog. You may find a male is more to your liking and they are often easier to get.
  • Rescue dogs generally have some baggage. If you are looking for the perfect dog, there is no such thing. Sometimes rescues require more time and attention than raising a puppy.
  • Rescue is not the place to look if you are interested in a hunting dog. We have placed a few dogs that are now hunted, but it is not the norm.
  • Many Vizslas are turned into rescue because the family "doesn't have time" for them. Vizslas require exercise daily, and playing with the kids or out in the yard by themselves is not adequate. Make sure you are prepared to provide them with the exercise and mental stimulation they need.
