Hound of the Week

Checkers

Checkers anyone?  Well check out Checkers!  Although he can't play the board game he is a very playful hound.  Checkers is quite the handsome hound with a beautiful red brindle coat.

Checkers is a smaller male hound and is a happy guy who is very affectionate. He loves to socialize and meet people including children. Checkers is a mellow, quiet guy who would love to have another dog to hang out with.

Checkers is looking for that special someone who will spoil him beyond his wildest dreams!  Could that be you?  Give him a call and check him out!      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.
