Welcome to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption

SA Greys is a Tucson-based, all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving forever homes for retired racing greyhounds in Southern Arizona. Since our incorporation in 2012, we have placed over 500 greyhounds in loving and qualified forever homes.

Our greatest accomplishment has been to rehabilitate injured or ill greyhounds. We have taken in many hounds who suffered career ending injuries or illnesses that required exceptional veterinary care. These hounds now enjoy retirement in their forever homes, just like the hound on your couch and in your heart. Special needs dogs are helped by Jackie's Fund, a fund started when Jackie, our original poster dog, required costly veterinary expenses.

Transforming retired racers, especially those who are injured or ill, into "couch potatoes" takes dedicated volunteers and resources. Since or founding, we have incurred nearly a $1,000,000 in expenses for veterinary care, treatment, and housing. 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.

The first six houndies of our next bunch arrived 11/27. They had spa day and are heading into their health checks next. Check back on our Available Hounds page for updates and pictures!

The rest of this bunch, another 10-12 dogs, are expected to arrive in early January.

Hound of the Week

Cindy Lou Who

Cindy Lou Who is a super sweet and amazing brindle hound who just arrived from Kansas. You know the same place ToTo from the Wizard of Oz came from.  And just like ToTo -- Cindy Lou Who wants to find her way to her forever home.

Cindy Lou Who ran in over 125 races in Alabama and then went to Kansas to raise more amazing puppies just like her.  What a career this lady has had.  Did you know she was born on Christmas Eve??  Wouldn't it be wonderful if Cindy Lou Who could spend her birthday and her first real Christmas with her new family?  Let's make this special lady's wish come true.  Why not give her a jingle?  She will be waiting to hear from you with bells on!

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.



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.
