SCOA: Saluki Rescue

The Saluki Club of America does not perform 'hands-on' rescue work, but instead supports the efforts of the various saluki rescue groups in the USA. In 2007, for the first time, the SCOA offered an exhibition "Parade of Rescues", to recognize the dogs who have had their lives changed for the better through their placement into 'forever homes' via a Rescue Program. The SCOA Rescue Liaison maintains amicable relationships with the rescue groups and compiles statistical data on the overview of Saluki Rescue.
