Hound of the Week

Flute is a pretty brindle hound who was made for adventure! She traveled all the way from Kansas to her new home in Tucson. As soon as she walked in her foster home she was ready to play with her new toy and even chased a ball!

She's already been to Karchener Caverns and Tombstone where everyone stopped to see her and she was friendly with children and adults. Needless to say, Flute loves to ride in the car and will settle down quickly. She loves to go for walks, sleeps on her dog bed and is housetrained.

Flute is a real sweetheart! So give her a call! She is ready to start a life of fun and adventure with YOU!

Welcome to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption

Mission Statement

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.

Adoption

Thinking about adopting a greyhound? You've come to the right place. We work with farms and tracks around the country to bring in retired racers. It's not important where they come from. What is important is where they go. Our job is to find these deserving dogs forever homes. The dogs on this page are either at our kennel or in foster homes. Before any dog can be adopted they have to be spayed or neutered and cat tested for living in homes with cats. Dogs spend a few weeks or more in a foster home learning the ropes of home living and interacting with family members.

Foster

Every dog in foster care is closer to the 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 the foster parent.
