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.

SA Greys welcomed four new female hounds on Sunday, December 16: Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Brandy, and Eggnog! Early holiday present! Check our Available Hounds page  for updates and pictures! A haul of another 10-12 dogs is expected to arrive in January.

Hound of the Week

Zara is a sweet and quiet black hound who has recently retired from Kansas. She said goodbye to snow and hello to sunny and warm Arizona! Zara ran in over 100 races in Alabama and then went on to raise puppies in Kansas. She is ready to enjoy the good life!

Zara is a bit shy and would prefer to have another 4-legged companion to hang out with so she can learn all about what home life is really like.

So please give this lovely lady a call. She would love to start the New Year with that special family who will shower her with love and affection, a soft, comfy bed and a few squeaky toys to play with. That would make her soooo happy!

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.
