Riley and Ron go to Hollywood!
Last month we learned of an upcoming Hallmark show called “2018 American Rescue Dog Show.” The show was looking for owners of dogs in their forever homes in order to give rescue dogs some national exposure. At stake is a $25,000 prize that will be donated to the winning dog’s rescue organization to help it keep doing its good work.
Ron Sevier and Sherri Rotchford, who are the proud parents of three SA Grey hounds, jumped on the chance to enter Ron and Riley (formerly Marigold) and they were selected! Riley and Ron will be representing Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption and will be competing against hundreds of other rescued dogs for the opportunity to win a $25,000 donation to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption. The program will be filmed January 13-14 and will air February 12.
Stay tuned for updates on Riley and Ron's Big Adventure!
Featured Hound of the Week
Satmika means "good heart" in Hindu and this is true of Satmika. She is a lovable hound with a beautiful, shiny black coat who is very friendly! She is a happy girl and her tail is constantly wagging!
Satmika (Mika for short) is also a very loyal hound who will stay by your side once she knows you are her friend. Mika is hoping to find that special someone that will shower her with soft beds, squeaky toys and lots of loving!
She is ready to spend many happy days and relaxing evenings with you. Please give this special girl a call. She will be a welcome addition to your family and home.
Satmika needs to be in a home with no cats or small dogs.
SA GREYS is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing the opportunity to better the lives of ex-racing and rescued greyhounds by securing loving and qualified forever homes, predominantly in the Southern Arizona area.
Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption is a Tucson-based all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving forever homes for retired racing greyhounds from Phoenix to New Mexico. Since our incorporation in early 2012, SA Greys has placed over 500 greyhounds into forever homes.
Our greatest accomplishment, though, has been to accept and to rehabilitate injured or ill greyhounds. Since 2012, we have taken in 143 greyhounds who suffered career ending injuries or illnesses that require exceptional veterinary costs. These hounds are now enjoying retirement in their forever homes, just like the hound on your couch and in your heart. These special needs dogs were helped by a special fund – Jackie’s Fund, which began when Jackie, the original poster dog, required costly veterinary expenses and recovery.
Transforming retired racing greyhounds, including injured or ill hounds, into couch potatoes, takes dedicated volunteers and resources. Since our founding in 2012 through 2017, we have incurred almost $900,000 in veterinary care, treatment, and housing expenses. We know it is worth it every time we place a happy, healthy greyhound in a forever home.
Please join us in supporting the hounds in any way you can.
