My goodness, y’all. Chelsea has been working like a mad woman to make Shelter Sketches a fantastic community effort. She now has pulled together several artists that are going to be taking part in Shelter Sketches. Are you an artist interested in harnessing your talent for good? Contact us!
Huge thank you to Chelsea for putting this all together. You are a rock star!
Idgie is an 8 yr old female Italian Greyhound. She loves everyone she meets but would prefer a home with older children & smaller dogs. She snuggles up with her foster brother (IG) but wishes her foster sister (German Shep) would please leave her alone. She’s 9 lbs. playful, bouncy & prancey-loves to go for walks. She is potty trained, crate trained, sits and comes when she’s called-Wow!
She is a little bit sensitive-doesn’t like her nails cut, isn’t really enthusiastic about being picked up – preferring instead to come to you. She’s looking for someone with a gentle touch, a comfy couch and plenty of time for cuddles. She’s not barky, licky or bitey. She’s missing some teeth, after recent dental work, but is happy to have her teeth brushed so that she can keep the rest.
Idgie comes well equipped with a travel crate, beds, clothes and toys and is ready to find her forever home. She’s a little sweetheart and has quickly wiggled her way into the hearts of her foster family, who’ll really miss her when she goes.
Idgie is being fostered in Seattle, WA. Washington residents who want to begin the process to adopt an IGCA Rescue dog, please write firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the IGCA adoption process and receive an application. We are always willing to consider placing a dog out of state, but applicants are asked to apply to and work with us through their local IGCA Rep.

Chelsea Conlin is a freelance fantasy illustrator, but if she can help spread the word about animals in need with her skills, she’s more than happy to do so! She currently lives in Kentucky with her husband where they do what they can by driving dog rescue transports on weekends. They have two dogs of their own: a rescue greyhound named Storm and a mixed breed named Azu. You can find her at Paper Nautilus, her sketchblog, twitter, and deviantart.
