ROMP Italian Greyhound Rescue (ROMP stands for Rescue Our Mill Pups) was founded in 2007 by a generous volunteer determined to find homes for animals in need. Over the decades, ROMP Rescue’s objective has remained the same: to place animals into permanent, caring homes and advance the humane treatment of animals through education.
We are a private, “no-kill”, 100% volunteer based, 100% foster based and 100% donation based organization and receive no funding from the government. Your bequest, a gift from the heart, guarantees that our life-saving work continues. Planned gifts are an important source of support in building a sound future for the organization and the kindhearted animals we rescue.
Although bequests are the simplest and most popular form of planned gifts, your gift can consist of almost anything — money, bank accounts, life insurance policies, securities, works of art or real estate.
