A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to our AZ Gives Day campaign!
We raised $23,332 during the 24 hours, we won $2,500 for the most unique donations over $50 during the 7:00 a.m. Power Hour, AND we won an additional $10,000 for being among the top three in total donations in our class. We received an additional $1,000 after midnight - bringing our grand total to $34,332!
We couldn't have done this without your continued support!
Thank you for giving us the ability to continue our mission:
No Hound Left Behind


Featured Hound of the Week

Name: Windy (Whirlwind)

Age: 6-1/2 Years old

Oh, my gosh!!  Someone wrote a song about me!  It goes like this:

Who's prancing down the streets of the city, Smilin' at everybody she sees?  Who's reachin' out to capture a moment?  Everyone knows it's Windy!  And Windy has stormy eyes, That flash at the sound of lies.  And Windy has wings to fly, Above the clouds (above the clouds),  Above the clouds (above the clouds)*

In addition to being someone muse, I've been a career girl and a mother.  I ran 67 races, then raced around after little devil dogs.  I am SO ready to live a life of leisure!  I can picture myself prancing down the street with my forever person.  Maybe we'll sit at a sidewalk cafe where I can drink a puppachino or shop for a new toy.  Heaven.

If you'd like a breezy, easy cover dog in your life, have your people call my people.


*DISCLAIMER:  I don't think I can fly.  I'm going to try next time I get to go to Bark in the Park playgroup.


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 472 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 105 greyhounds who suffered career ending injuries or illnesses.  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.

In 2016, we were an integral part of the organizational effort to respond to the closing of Tucson Greyhound Park.  Over the course of three months, over 450 hounds were moved from TGP.  Over 250 hounds were placed with adoption groups across the Southwest.  SA Greys was instrumental in facilitating this process.  In three months, SA Greys took in 51 of those greyhounds, 18 of them injured or ill.

Our first post-TGP hounds arrived from Alabama very late Tuesday night, August 9, 2016.  A total of 43 greyhounds from Alabama, Oklahoma and Kansas have joined our family since the closing of the Tucson track. 

Transforming retired racing greyhounds, including injured or ill hounds, into couch potatoes, takes dedicated volunteers and resources.  We have incurred almost $300,000 in veterinary care and treatment expenses since our founding in 2012. 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.

Thinking about adopting a greyhound? You've come to the right place. Most of our available dogs come from the dog track in South Tucson. Although some retired race dogs are from Mexico. 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.

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.
