Rescue Contacts

Below you will find a list of Volunteer Rescue Coordinators by State (US only). Please note that each Rescue Coordinator operates as an individual rescue organization and they are not directly affiliated with, or part of, the Vizsla Club of America.

VCA Breed Rescue Chair, Laurie Cummings Cahill (vcarescue@gmail.com)

Please contact the rescue volunteer closest to your area. If the matter is urgent and you cannot reach a local volunteer, please contact the Regional Coordinator, listed at the top of each regional section. A Regional Coordinator will contact someone else in the volunteer rescue network to help with both surrender and placements of pure-bred vizslas.

Because they are a volunteer rescue network, they all work together and can provide referrals for transport, foster homes or adoption to another rescue group as needed. While they may, coincidentally, help you find the dog of your dreams, their primary concern is placing the right dog with the right owner. Therefore, dogs are placed on a "best fit" rather than a "first come/first served" basis.
