New Hounds from Alabama!

We have Greyt News! With the closing of the Mobile, AL track, we welcomed nine new houndies on Sept 1! We are super excited about their arrival and we are hoping you are too. We can use a little help with the expenses so we are asking our membership for assistance. In addition to the usual intake expenses, we paid $50 per hound to transport them to us. We created a new campaign to raise funds to help with the costs. We appreciate the support we've received and hope to make our goal to cover all costs.

The first nine people who donated $50 or more named the new hounds! We took in eight females and one male. Stay tuned for updates! We'll be posting new profiles and pictures.


 

As always, thank you for your tax-deductible support! We look forward to sharing pictures and profiles with you in the coming weeks!

Featured Hound of the Week


Name:
 Indy

Age: 6 Years Old

Indy is a very handsome, large red brindle hound who is a happy guy with lots of energy!

He is a very well-mannered boy who loves to be around his people and will lay in whatever room you are in. He is house-trained, a good eater with no food aggression and walks well on a leash.

Indy gets along well with other medium-large dogs and is currently in a foster home with another greyhound. At Meet & Greet, Indy is the perfect gentleman! Indy is an awesome dog and would make a great companion! Please give this wonderful guy a call. You won't be sorry you did.

Special needs: Indy needs to be in a home with no cats or small dogs. He would prefer another companion to hang out with or someone who is home most of the time.

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, 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.

My foster dad says it's my turn to write an update.

I joined the SA GREYS family in May. I'm six years old and ran 110 races before I retired in Arizona.

I LOVE my foster family, including Napa and Zin, my greyhound brother and sister. In one of pictures, I'm using Napa as a pillow because he and Zin were hogging the doggie beds. Because I was already there, I gave Napa a little bath.

I aced pet training. I get along with everybody, sleep through the night, potty outside and walk well on a leash. I don't mind napping in my crate when my foster mom and dad are away. I even know a trick called sitting.

I'm generally pretty calm and enjoy napping quietly while my foster dad works at his computer. I DO like to chase the occasional lizard around the yard. I'm also a collector... gathering toys, towels, socks and other things, and stacking them on my dog bed. A girl never knows when she might need something, and I don't have a purse. I don't chew them up or anything because I'm a good girl.

Although I like my foster siblings, I think I'm be fine as an only dog too. Sometimes I like away time and to nap in an empty room. Also, as an only dog, I wouldn't have to push the other doggies out of the way when it's time for pets and kisses.

I'm hoping to move in with my forever family soon so we can plan for Halloween. I think I want to dress up as a doggie vampire. I'm willing to wear another costume if we have a family theme.

Hope to See You Soon.

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.
