The National Borzoi Rescue Foundation Presents:
Vintage Borzoi Collectables from the collection of
Norma Eliscu Banas
In 1935 a well known sculptor and National Academy prize winner, Frank Eliscu, designed the Heisman Trophy. In addition to his genius as a sculptor, Mr. Eliscu was an owner and lover of Sighthounds. That love was passed down to his daughter, Norma Eliscu Banas, Ed.D. For many years Ms. Banas has bred and loved both Greyhounds and Italian Greyhounds. She also has an enduring love of Russian Wolfhounds.
During those years she amassed some lovely Borzoi collectables. The items below are from the Banas collection. 50% of your payment less the cost of shipping will go directly to the National Borzoi Rescue Foundation. Shipping will be handled by Norma Banas. Each item will be carefully packed with careful attention to detail.
This offer will be limited to purchases through July 31, 2014 ONLY!
All prices listed INCLUDE the cost of USA shipping

Any person with a Borzoi in need of help please contact Carol Backers at the phone number or email shown below!
The Borzoi community is fortunate to have a low rate of dogs needing rescue and excellent homes waiting to adopt them. Any web site or organization offering a large number of rescue Borzoi should be researched thoroughly if you are considering acquiring a dog from them. In addition, there are now quite a few 'pets for profit' organizations nationwide. These organizations often incorporate the word 'rescue' into their company names and marketing materials, and their fees are typically very high compared to legitimate 501(c)3 rescue groups.
We wish to help potential owners discern 'pets for profit' from true breed or all-breed rescue organizations. Click on our links page for the Borzoi Rescue organizations in California and Canada. Please feel free to contact us for background information on any other organization which may be offering Borzoi as rescues.

Thank you for visiting the National Borzoi Rescue Foundation on the web. We were formed in December of 1994. N.B.R.F. is dedicated to the rescue and placement of all displaced borzoi into good, permanent homes through our adoption program.
The Rescue operation is costly, but the need is urgent and, unfortunately, ongoing. The N.B.R.F. is made possible with the continuing efforts of our many supporters and donations from Borzoi Breed Clubs across the country, individuals, fund raisers and adoption fees.
Since you will be making a ten to fifteen year commitment, please consider carefully before adopting a borzoi. Please feel free to contact the N.B.R.F. at any time. We will be happy to answer all your questions or assist you in finding the right Borzoi for your particular situation.
