Featured Hound of the Week

DSC_0230Name:  Maverick

Age:  4 1/2 Years old

Maverick is a handsome dark brindle greyhound who is a real charmer!  He is gentle and affectionate and loves all people including younger children and is not shy at all!  Maverick loves to ride in the car and likes to go for walks and does very well on a leash. Maverick has lots of energy and runs around the house playing.  His new found interest is the tennis ball!  So if you're looking for a fun and lovable guy please consider Maverick.
Special needs:  Maverick needs to be in a home with no cats and would do best with another dog or with someone who is home most of the time. 


Welcome to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption

Mission Statement

Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption provides quality care and nurturing  while seeking loving, responsible adoptive homes for greyhounds.  We educate the public about the needs and issues of greyhounds in the racing industry as well as greyhounds in the community and in adoptive homes.

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 75 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 $100,000 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.

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.
