STOLA, incorporated in 2000, is the U. S. National Saluki Rescue Organization. A 501 (c) (3) registered charity, all donations to STOLA are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Since STOLA is an all-volunteer organization, donations directly support our rescue program.


STOLA saves Salukis from kill-shelters, abusive situations, when individuals can no longer properly care for them, or when help is needed in natural disasters.


Our volunteers and fosters work to heal the dogs' physical and emotional wounds and place them in loving, adoptive homes.

Education & Mentorship

STOLA provides books and eductional materials about the history, welfare and training of the Saluki breed to help reduce the number of rescues that occur. We also provide one-on-one mentorship for people new to the Saluki breed and for people adopting Salukis to ensure that person and dog live compatibly together.


The welfare of the dog is always our priority. Each situation is individually assessed with that goal in mind.
