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.
You can start by completing an adoption application and meeting the hounds at Meet & Greets around town (link to calendar). Do your research to determine if a greyhound is the right pet for you/your family.
If you're not sure a greyhound is right for you, consider becoming a foster home (foster application link) to find out.

About me:I'm Scarlett, named after a really pretty movie star. I could never be a movie star. I prefer to stay out of the limelight and live a quiet life. I guess I'm a bit of an introvert.
I won't come running up to you or jump on you, but if you take the time to get to know me, I'll be a great companion. I think I'd like to live with a quiet family and maybe someone who is a homebody like me. We can just spend time together, and maybe go for a nice walk every day. If that sounds good to you, fill out an online application thingy and come visit me.

About me:I guess I wasn't a very good race dog, but I think I'm going to ace this pet thing. I love to play with people and toys. I like snacks. I like taking naps on soft beds. I like playing in the yard. I even held still and let them give me a completely unnecessary bath! Come visit me and I'll demonstrate how I excel at all of these things! Look into my eyes and repeat after me, "Zach is the dog for me." Really, I am the dog for you! Pick me.

About me:I'm Katie. I'm a bit of an introvert, so I'm just hanging back, watching what goes on around me. So far, living in a house instead of a kennel seems like a good thing. I have new best friend, Sam. We get to play in the yard together. We even got a bath and went on a road trip to meet kitties. I've heard living in a forever home will be even better. I can't wait!

About me:I'm Romeo. I love people, other dogs and even cats. I'm shy and am not super comfortable in new situations. As long as you are patient and gentle I will be fine. I think I'd like to live in quiet home, where I can have a comfortable routine and another doggie to keep me company.

About me:My new pet name is Peanut, although people keep calling me Princess. What's up with that? I like to keep my crate very clean and tidy, no messes for me. I don't like walking on gravel because I don't want to get my pretty white paws dirty. I think cleanliness and high standards are good traits!
I like cuddling with the people who visit. I don't really understand the whole "get the toy" thing yet. Do they really expect me to go it for them? That seems like something a golden retriever or lab would do, not a graceful greyhound.
If you would like to add a princess greyhound to your life, have your people contact my people. I'll have my no puppies surgery on May 6, so I'll be ready to move in with you soon (if you have a tidy, comfortable house, a soft doggie bed with no pea underneath, and a pretty girl collar.)

About me:I broke my leg racing, so I had to retire early. I moved in with a nice foster family who has a really handsome black greyhound. Don't tell, but I have a crush on him. He seemed pretty excited to have me move in too. He escorted he all over the house and yard so I could check it out. I saw toys, snacks, kibble and bunch of other stuff.
I had surgery to fix my leg this week, so I'm going to take it easy for awhile. I'll update you on my progress (with my boyfriend and my leg.)

About me:I'm Bunny, but I'm not actually a bunny. I'm a greyhound. I broke my ankle racing so I "retired." I'm not even two years old! So far, I've spent most of my time in crate so I've learned to roach and to play with toys.
I'm watching the other greyhounds and the little furry things they say are dogs. Seems like they just hang around, eat snacks and get pets. If my foster mom would let me out, I will prove I can do that too!
I can't wait until my leg is healed so I can play is the house and yard, and get pets whenever I want!

About me:Cami is a gorgeous girl who loves people, more than anything. All she wants is to be a companion. She enjoys playing with toys, going for walks or simply lounging around the house together. If you meet Cami, you will love Cami. She will return that love ten time over, and will make you laugh every day.

About me:UPDATE: I've healed and I am bionic!
I'm trying to decide whether my nick name should be Chili Bean or Chili Dog. I have a lot of time to think right now. I broke my leg into seven different pieces during a race at TGP. The surgeons at VSCOT put it back together with plates, screws and wire. (Thanks, Jackie's Fund!)
Does that mean I'm a bionic chili dog now? They have me incarcerated in a crate, allegedly for my own good, so I haven't had an opportunity to see if I have any super powers. My foster mom says in a few weeks my leg will be stronger and I can test for super powers then.

About me:They're calling me Gatsby, I guess because I'm wearing a tuxedo. When I moved into the boarding facility, I found out my brother Rusty was living right next door to me! It's great. We can hang out together. Everybody laughs at our tails. My tail is very curly and Rusty's in bushy and striped. When we're excited our tails stick out of the top of our crates. Everyone seems to get a kick out of that... If it makes the peoples like us more, that's fine by me.
I'll miss Rusty, but I'm really looking forward to moving into my own home. I like people and toys and running around in the yard. Actually, I like everything! If you pick me, I'll make sure to wiggle my tail every day so you can have a good laugh.

About me:I'm Lindsey. My twin brother Tony broke his leg racing one day, so he left the track. I didn't know where he went, so I decided I had better break my leg too. The very next day, I did it. It probably wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done, but I found Tony! I had surgery at Briarcrest the day after Tony did, so we hung out together in recovery. (Thanks, Jackie's Fund!) Tony and I don't live in the same foster home, but we're both safe and happy, so I'm okay with that.
Everybody laughs at my "helicopter" tail that is always going round and round. I can't help it. I'm really happy to be starting my pet life. If you let me be part of your family, I promise to make you smile and I'll try to use better judgment in the future.

About me:My new pet name is Rusty, but I'm not really rusty. That's just my shiny red fur. I'm going to be two years old in July, so I should be settled in my forever home in time to plan a birthday celebration.
I'm thinking maybe we'll get up early and go for a nice long walk or to the dog park. Then we can go to In N Out burger for a pup patty and DQ for a pup cup for dessert! We can nap for awhile, then play with squeaky toys. Maybe that evening we can watch 101 Dalmatians or Homeward Bound while you pet me. If that sounds like fun to you, come and get me!

About me:I'm Wrigley and yes, I am wiggly. I injured by ankle so I had to stop racing. Luckily, I didn't need surgery. I just need to rest it for awhile. I may have a limp, but that's okay as long as I can still run and play!
I'm having a great time despite my restrictions. I want to see everything and meet everyone in the boarding facility. I can't wait to move in with my own foster or forever family. Come get me soon. There is so much to do and I don't want to miss another minute.

About me:Did you know I'm named after a girl race car driver? I think that's pretty cool!D When I'm running around the back yard, I pretend I'm driving in a NASCAR race. vROOm! I think I'd really like to hang out with a forever family, watching TV and just being together. Then maybe we could go for a nice, long walk or to the dog park. I know I didn't race as long as the other dogs, but I'm still super excited to start my pet life. I'm tiny, so I won't eat as much as those HUGE greyhounds living next door to me. I'll be good if you teach me how to be good. PLEEEEEASE pick me! In the mean time, I'll be dreaming about you...

About me:I'm Jackson. I like to play with my new toy and run around the exercise yard. I'm not sure I can trust the peoples yet, but I check them out when they're not looking. Maybe next week I'll be brave enough to walk right up to them to get pets. Buzz and Sprite seem to enjoy it. Wish me luck!

About me:Hello! I'm Jaden. I've heard the peoples say I'm a leaner love bug. I do like to lean on people because it seems to prompt them to pet me. Ahhhh.
I'm a pretty happy, chill hound. I was roaching in the back of the car on the way home from surgery to fix my shattered leg. No worries...the blanket was soft, the person transporting me was nice and I had a really good feeling about where I was going.
I have a good feeling about finding a nice forever home too. If you can feel me, come on out and meet me. You can foster me while my leg is healing, then finalize the adoption after I'm medically cleared and neutered (whatever that is.) Time for another nap...resting is good for my leg and dreaming about my forever home makes the time go more quickly.

About me:Hello! I'm Terra. I think they meant to name me tiara, because I'd look GREAT in one. Not that I'm materialistic... I don't even care if you give me a bling collar, as long as you let me be by your side.
I absolutely LOVE life as a pet, but I'm a little sad right now. My person just told me he's moving away and I can't go with him. We've had SO much fun together it's hard for me to imagine what my life will be like without him. I have my paws crossed that someone else will love me and take me for great adventures for the rest of my life.

About me:I'm Indy. I've love to play and get pets from my foster people. I have already lived as a pet for over a year, so I'm house trained, I walk well on a leash, and like riding in the car. I love a play and to get back rubs.
I wouldn't mind being an only dog or living with another dog, as long as I get to be the boss. I've been waiting longer than most of the other hounds for a forever home, so I hope you pick me.

About me:I like my new name Emily. It fits me. They tell me I'm tiny and ridiculously cute. I'm taking their word for it. I can tell you I'm a happy, bouncy girl who loves toys and people. I have SO much fun during turnout, just running around and then getting nice back runs from the volunteers. I hope I get to do that with my forever person before I turn two on December 22!!

About me:I'm Simon. Sam, the pretty red brindle girl dog, and I were named in honor of Sam Simons. He added a greyhound to the cast of The Simpsons and donated millions of dollars to help animals. I will carry his name proudly and will always try to be a good dog. I've very calm and mellow, even though I'm young. You can visit me whenever you want. I'll just stay by your side while you read (and hopefully pet me.) My no-puppies surgery is in early April, so I'll be ready to go home with you in no time.

About me:Hello! I'm Tony the Tiger. RRRRRRR. (That's my best play growl.) I broke my leg in three places last night, so I moved from my racing kennel at the track to a foster home. I'll have surgery next week.
There are SO many interesting things to see! They wouldn't let me sit in the front seat on the way to the vet, so I just crammed my head through the gap and lay my head on the driver's shoulder. I like people and wanted to see everything! When I was at the vet, I saw a box with fuzzy dogs in it. They said it was a "tv." I couldn't get the other dogs to notice or play with me, but I liked watching them.
I'm SO happy with my new foster people and can't wait until I can go on adventures with them or my forever family!

About me:My new pet name is Marigold. Do you think my nickname should be Mari or Goldie? I'm a pretty golden color, so I'm thinking Goldy.
I was trying to run really fast at the track and broke my leg. I'm having surgery next week to fix it. Meanwhile, I'm hanging out with several other greyhounds. We rest of soft beds and are hand fed sausage and cottage cheese. If I had know pet life was like this, I might have broken my leg a little sooner!
Anyway, I'm really excited about getting my leg fixed and finding a forever home. I think I'll be great pet, so you should take a chance on me.

About me:I"m Hera, named after the Greek goddess of family. A lady named Cheryl named me as part of her Mother's Day gift. Rumor has it she's going to bring me my very own toy. I may lick her.
I'm a confident, happy girl. I didn't have any problem adjusting to the boarding facility. I've been out running the boy dogs for years, so living with a bunch of them doesn't scare me a bit. With that said, I'm excited to move into my very own foster home to learn now to be a pet dog instead of a racing dog. I'll try to be the best at that too!

About me:My pet name is Mason. I was named by Michele as part of the Mother's Day fundraiser. She named me after her father, so I'm trying really hard to make her and everyone proud.
I like the boarding facility and all the other greyhounds. I'm just hanging out and taking it easy, waiting my turn for no puppies surgery. I've heard I'll have surgery just prior to Memorial Day weekend. Maybe I'll get to eat hot dogs in my forever person's back yard! That would be awesome.

About me:ZigZag came to us with a badly broken leg that required surgery. ZigZag also had to endure follow up surgeries because the bone protruding through his skin caused an infection, which is turn killed some of the skin surrounding the wound. Despite 14 days in VSCOT and significant pain, ZigZag is an absolute sweetheart. He is now resting comfortably in a foster home, learning the joys of being a pet while her recovers.

About me:I'm Asher. My twin brother, Archer, and I just retired and moved into the Lazy Grey Ranch. There are a lot of greyhounds laying around here, so I guess it's aptly named. There is a pen with white, feathered clucking things in the back yard. I think they should let me in that pen to "meet" the white things. They look chasable and possibly tasty. Anyway....I'm nearly six years old so I'd love to move into my forever home soon. I've got a lot of plans for my pampered pet years.

About me:I'm Maddie. Mary Ann named me as part of the Mother's Day fundraiser. I really like my new name, and everyone says it suits me. Auntie Taryn picked me up at the track on Saturday morning because I broke my leg racing. She took me to see my doctor, then took me home for the weekend.
I really like the other greyhoundies and the people who live with me and visit. I've spent most of the holiday weekend hanging out on a soft bed and eating snacks. There are so many new things like toys and running shoes that I want to keep close to me, so they're saying I'm a "collector." They smile when they say it, so I guess that's okay.
Wish me well in my surgery tomorrow. I'm be all better soon and ready to move in with my forever people. Maybe they have visitation hours at Briarcrest...

About me:My new pet name is Wrangler, which seems like a pretty good name for a Southwest dog like me. I broke my ankle, so I have to have surgery next week. The splint is kind of heavy, but I can still walk with a swagger.
I moved into my foster home right away because of my leg. I'm living with another boy greyhound and my foster mom. So far, I'm just hanging out on a dog bed. Mom says I'll be able to go for walks after I'm healed, so I hope that happens soon.
