Featured Hound of the Week
Age: 5 Years Old
Meet Minnie! She is a pretty red fawn greyhound who is a real sweetheart! She is a very loving girl who gets along very well with everyone. She loves to be close to her humans and laying next to them. She is a confident girl who is not afraid of loud noises or thunder. She is always happy and enjoys exploring. She also likes to go for walks and does not pull on her leash.
Minnie is looking for a home that will give her lots of love and attention along with yummy food and treats! Let's give this lovely lady the best forever home she has been dreaming of!
Special Needs: Minnie needs to be in a home with no cats.
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.
