Rescues can have long waiting lists.
I have had 7 rescue whippets of my own (some come in pairs!), 1 greyhound, 1 lurcher and fostered a few whippets besides.
If you do not mind paying (sometimes it is very little), there are often whippets and whippet X for sale that need a new home beacause of changes in the owners circumstances.
I found one of my whippets on EpupZ. I traveled quite a long way to collect, but I have never regreted it. Do however ask plenty of questions and get as much history as possible. Take your time (especially if using EpupZ). Some whippets can be quite damaged. This does of course apply to rescue whippets too.
Hope this helps

If you want the most comfortable seat in the house, move the whippets
