I am one of the 51

Jackie’s Fund is an ongoing campaign to raise funds for greyhounds in our care with extraordinary injuries and illnesses.  Jackie’s Fund gives hounds the chance they deserve for a new life as a beloved pet.  

This year, Jackie's Fund has paid over $100,000 in veterinary care and treatment for 51 hounds with extraordinary injuries or illnesses!  Hounds with broken legs, ruptured spleens, thyroid disorders, heart worms and a variety of other illnesses or injuries were healed.  

The 51 received appropriate veterinary care and went on to live happy pet lives because Jackie’s Fund was there to help them in their time of need.  Your donations will ensure SA Greys and Jackie’s Fund can continue the mission of “No Hound Left Behind” in 2016.  Our goal is to raise $10,000 between now and January 1.

Thank you to our wonderful donors who have donated to holiday “51” Jackie's Fund drive so far:

Skye nearly died because her spleen twisted, cutting off circulation to the organ.  Jackie’s Fund paid all of her veterinary expenses, including surgery.  Skye is now a happy, healthy girl living the good life with her brother, Hobbs.  Your donation will ensure we can help hounds like Skye in 2016.

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.
