Got Shoes? Fundraiser for Jackie’s Fund for Injured Greyhounds
Featured Hound of the Week
Age: 7 Years old
Meet Dakota. She is a beautiful fawn colored greyhound who likes everyone and everything! Dakota is a gentle, friendly and happy hound who gets along well with her three foster greyhound sisters! Dakota loves to go for walks, play in the yard, riding in the car and most of all her squeaky toys! Dakota is house trained and likes to sleep in her crate when it's bed time. She has been described as "the perfect dog". So if you have room in your heart for this former mommy dog, she would love to move in with you!
Special Needs: Dakota needs to be in a home with no cats or small dogs.
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, we have placed over 350 greyhounds into forever homes.
Our greatest accomplishment is being able to rehabilitate injured or ill greyhounds. Since 2012, we have taken in over 88 greyhounds who suffered career ending illnesses or injuries. They are now enjoying pet life 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, takes dedicated volunteers and resources. We expended over $200,000 in veterinary care and treatment in 2014 and in 2015. We know it was worth it every time we place a happy, healthy greyhound in a forever home. Join us in supporting the hounds any way you can.
