Hound of the Week

Aspen

Hello! Meet Aspen. We're not quite sure how Aspen got her name, since she has never been to Colorado, but she is as beautiful and elegant as the Aspen trees that grow there. She has a gorgeous brindle coat with a white chest so she is ready to attend any special event there maybe!

Aspen is a happy little girl with her tail constantly wagging and always has an abundance of kisses to share with you. At times Aspen can be a bit shy and uncertain of new things but once she figures it out she is fine. Aspen also likes to sing and will get all of her hound friends to sing along with her! She is also very playful and will amuse herself with her kong toy for hours.

So if you are looking for a soloist to share your musical aspirations with why not consider Aspen? She will sing her way into your heart and home.      Click for More Info

Welcome to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption

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.

Adopt

Thinking about adoption? You're at the right place! We work with farms and tracks nationwide to bring in retired racers. We're dedicated to finding loving forever homes for these deserving hounds. Prior to adoption, they are spayed/neutered and tested for cat tolerance. Dogs spend a few weeks with trained volunteers to learn the ropes of home living and living with their new families.

Foster

Every dog in foster care is one step closer to our goal of a loving forever home. Our objective is to help the dog become acquainted with family living. Your foster greyhound will experience many firsts – to walk on tile or stairs, to watch TV, to be in a house, to be with other dog breeds, cats, and perhaps children. You will guide and correct behaviors as their foster parent.
