GRNTS BDGES 2016_FIN

Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption would like to thank the ASPCA for the generous grant that helped us fund boarding for the 51 greyhounds that we took during the closing of live racing at Tucson Greyhound Park from April - J13442162_1194532313912813_9061553392800483136_nune, 2016.   Our boarding facility has been the intake point for the greyhounds that we received from TGP.  

Here the dogs were bathed, evaluated, treated for fleas and ticks and boarded until a foster or forever home was available.  13590491_1046769705377398_6464666552895062739_n

Some of our most injured greys were also given a safe recuperating and resting space at the ranch.  We are deeply appreciative that the ASPCA assisted us keeping the hounds in safe and nurturing housing while on the way to their forever homes.

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, 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.

Adoption

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.

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.
