Featured Hound of the Week
Age: 5 Years old
Willow is a pretty, fawn-colored greyhound who is ready to finally settle down. This girl has been around! She must have been a fast one! She ran 331 races! Her last race was in Mexico exactly one year ago. After finishing her first career, this young lady moved to a farm in Kansas and had puppies. Boy that was even more exhausting! Willow is finally ready to retire and live the good life! She is a little love bug! She loves giving people hugs and kisses and also has made friends with her foster greyhound sister. She is also house-trained, walks fairly well on a leash and likes going for rides in the car.
Won't you find it in your heart to give this awesome girl the forever home she deserves?
Special needs: Willow 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, we have placed over 425 greyhounds into forever homes.
Our greatest accomplishment is being able to rehabilitate injured or ill greyhounds. Since 2012, we have taken in 98 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.
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 sick or injured.
Our first post-TGP hounds arrived from Alabama very late Tuesday night, August 9. A total of 12 Alabama dogs have joined our family in August.
Transforming retired racing greyhounds, including injured or ill hounds, takes dedicated volunteers and resources. We expended almost $300,000 in veterinary care and treatment since our founding in 2012. We know it is worth it every time we place a happy, healthy greyhound in a forever home. Join us in supporting the hounds any way you can.
