RESOURCES

There are thousands of useful resources. Add the ones that make sense to you when creating your Borzoi Ready plan.

Borzoi Club of America

The BCOA has been a strong leader in supporting its members and Borzoi in general, having contributed to hurricane relief efforts in the gulf coast and other national disasters. The creation of this disaster preparedness website is another example of the club’s commitment to Borzoi and fanciers.
