Hound of the Week
Hello! We'd like to introduce you to London! We're not sure how London received his name as he has never been to England but he is a calm and reserved hound with very good manners! London was at a recent event with two of his female roommates and he was the perfect gentleman!
London is a large, red male hound with beautiful amber eyes. He loves people and doing new things, a bit of an adventurist. He also likes likes to talk and for a larger hound he does not seem difficult to handle. So why not give London a ring on the telephone? He would love to join you for a spot of tea, every morning! He would be most delighted!
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.
