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.
