A Home for Hannah

IMG_2637Hannah had a very serious break to her leg, so serious that trying to surgically repair it would only MAYBE give her a 20% chance of having a stable leg.  IMG_2633

The best decision to make was to amputate the leg to prevent putting Hannah through multiple surgeries and pain throughout her recovery.  Just a few hours after surgery, Hannah was already showing everyone how three legs work just fine and she is doing very well.  

She had her surgery Friday and is currently in short-term foster, with "Sir Bounce a-lot Chili"...but NEEDS to be in a long-term foster to allow her to recover.  Do you have a quiet home?  Can you open it up and take Hannah in?  She really needs your help!  If you can open up your quiet home to Hannah, please let us know!

Apollo FaceWelcome to 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.  Since our incorporation in early 2012, nearly 200 greyhounds have found new forever homes.

Our greatest accomplishment is being able to rehabilitate injured greyhounds.  Since 2012, 53 dogs, many of whom 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.

Taking and caring for these injured dogs has marked a significant expansion in our mission, and a significant commitment of resources.  Our veterinary expenses in 2014 totaled in excess of $100,000, with 19 injured dogs receiving treatment, surgery where needed and rehabilitation.  In 2015, in just the first six months, 24 sick or injured dogs have come into our care.  Our 2015 veterinary expenses will in all probability again exceed $100,000.

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.
