Join us Sunday afternoon, May 3 for wine tasting, and a silent auction to benefit the hounds. Once again, we will be at Catavinos, for a leisurely afternoon event, for your enjoyment, and to benefit the hounds.
The details are at the GreytVines page. Be sure to pre-register to reserve your place.
Even non-drinkers can participate, and still help the hounds.

Very simply, our mission is to take racing greyhounds at the end of their careers and place each one of them in a forever home to be loved and cared for in their retirement years. We have been doing this since the beginning of 2012 - initially it was easy. Greyhounds came to us, we socialized them and provided spay or neuter surgery, and they went to a loving home (not always that simple, but it seemed so).
Today, the task is a much more challenging. In the past eighteen months, we have taken in a number of special needs dogs. These dogs have suffered career-ending injuries requiring complex surgery, or they have suffered illnesses or other serious conditions that required extended (and costly) care and treatment.
We created Jackie’s Fund for Special Needs in July of 2013, in response to the significantly higher costs of veterinary care that we experienced for these special greyhounds. Jackie, the namesake of the Fund, came to us that month with a badly broken leg. The cost of the surgery to repair her leg exceeded $5,000.
Chili after his latest vet visit
Chili is one of our latest poster children for the beneficiaries of Jackie’s Fund. Chili came to us on September 16, with a badly broken leg. His surgical costs have reached $10,000.
In late November, we took in Boo and ZigZag. The surgery, recovery and rehab for each of these dogs will also reach $10,000.
At this time of thanksgiving, peace, joy and celebration, we need your help. Please consider a donation to these wonderful greyhounds. You can see all the beneficiaries of Jackie’s Fund in the Gallery. Please help us place these dogs in loving homes, healthy, happy and ready for a full life of fun. Donate now.
We hope you and your family and friends have a joyous holiday season and a wonderful New Year.
With appreciation, Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption
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. So far this year (thru mid-November), 65 greyhounds found new homes.
Our greatest accomplishment is being able to rehabilitate injured greyhounds. Since 2012, 28 dogs, many who suffered career ending illnesses or injuries, now enjoy life just like the hounds 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.
