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: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:We think Bentley grew up in New York. He has that unmistakable East Coast attitude. Although Bentley lives happily with several medium to large dogs, he has NO problem telling them exactly what he thinks and going toe-to-toe with any of them. Bentley does have a soft side. He loves his person and wants to be underfoot whenever she is home. If you're looking for a loyal, loving companion, Bentley would be a great choice.

About me:Spencer is a love bug. He is happiest when he is with his people and loves to cuddle. Even at 12 years old, Spencer still likes to go for walks and play with toys. He is healthy and happy.
Spencer and Simone have been together their entire pet lives, so they need to stay together.

About me:Simone is friendly, loving hound. She enjoys a long walk every day, and to simply relax at home with her people. Like an old married couple, Simone gets annoyed with Spencer when he gets too playful.
Simone and Spencer are looking for a stable, loving home in which to spend their golden years together.

About me:You can call me Pepper. I tore a muscle when I was running as fast as I could. That night my muscle bled a lot. My leg was so full of blood it broke open. You should have seen my kennel person's face when she walked in the next morning! I didn't mean to scare everyone. She took me to straight to VSCOT and they fixed me up.
Because I was injured, I moved directly into a foster home. I have a greyhound foster brother who seems nice, but I was hoping to meet Chili. The people at VSCOT and the other greyhound girls seem to think he's pretty special. I was thinkin' Chili and Pepper seem to go together. Maybe someone will adopt both of us - we'd be a cute pair!

About me: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:If you're picturing a ballet dancer, think again. I'm more of a crazy party dancer. I LOVE to jump around and wiggle! I can't wait to dance around in my own living room and back yard!! If you want to be my dance partner, just submit one of the on-line adoption application thingies. My people will call your people.

About me:I'm a greyhound mix. Really, I am. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
My previous owner left me at a shelter in Southern Arizona. Apparently, an SA GREY supporter saw my picture and convinced SA GREYS to come get me before it was too late. I'm not sure what that means and I'm not sure I want to know.
I'm still learning to trust people. I like to lean on them if they talk softly and pet me just right. When I went to Aunt Cindy's house for "cat testing," I got to lie on the sofa and cuddle. I really liked that. I'm only 40 pounds, so I don't take up as much room as a real greyhound. Oops -- not that I'm not a real greyhound...

About me:I'm Tripp, Rory's brother. Everyone expects Rory and I to be just alike, but we're not. He's an extrovert and I'm more of an introvert. He loves to run around the yard and play with his toy. I prefer to lean on the volunteers and get pets.
Kennel Update: Tripp is now running around the exercise pen and seeking attention from the volunteers. He is still a little shy, but has come a long way. He's a big boy - 80 pounds - but is very gentle and mellow (when he isn't sprinting.)

About me:I'm a Vixen. Everyone says I'm tiny and pretty. Maybe instead of retiring I'll be a dog model! I'll be like one of those celebrities who has a long list of things they need before they appear. I'm going to have roasted chicken, squeaky toys and new bling collar on my list of "must haves." On second thought, I think I'd be happier retiring and being a pet. The word on the street is being a pet is a pretty sweet gig. I'd still like the roasted chicken, squeaky toys and bling collar. :)

About me:My new name is Savannah. When I moved into the SA GREY kennel, I was assigned my very own toy. I even get to take it with me to my forever and foster homes. Mine is a bunny. I named her Bunny. I LOVE playing with Bunny. We run around the exercise yard together at the speed of light. Every once in awhile I drop her, so I have to go back and grab her. She likes it too. If you'd like to play with Bunny and I, and be our forever people, we're ready and waiting for you...

About me:I'm Crystal. Well, I'm actually not crystal, I'm just named Crystal. My foot broke like it was crystal. The nice doctors at VSCOT are going to put my foot back together on Wednesday. Thanks Jackie's Fund!
The good news is I got to move into foster right away because I broke my foot. So far, it's fun. I have two boy greyhounds and a girl whippet to hang around with, and a orange, fuzzy thing they tell me is a dog. I'm not really sure about that, but whatever she is, she seems nice. The best part of foster is the people. I want to be with that all the time. They give pets, walk me around the yard, and give me yummy food. I think I'm going to like being a pampered pet.

About me:I'm Diesel. I broke my leg when I was racing other greyhounds. Auntie Liz picked me up right away and took me to VSCOT to see the dog doctor. At first I thought the doctor was going to be a dog! I was relieved when the doctor was a person, and I was just confused. I had surgery on Friday so I should be better soon. (Thanks Jackie's Fund contributors!)
I tried to play with a fluffy dog in the lobby at VSCOT but Auntie Liz wouldn't let me, so I just lay down and pouted. I'm hoping my foster family will let me play with other dogs once my leg is healed. If my leg looks good tomorrow, I get to leave VSCOT and start my life as a pet. YAY!

About me:I'm Peyton. Picasso, my brother, had a "happy tail," so he had to move into foster right away. His tail healed and his foster family decided to keep him forever. I have taken the first step in following his lead. I am banging my tail against the kennel walls as hard as I can, and I've developed happy tail. (It wasn't difficult because I'm a really happy guy and I have a long tail.) Next step, foster home!! Come get me. I'd hate to lose my beautiful tail...

About me:My new name is Colton. The volunteers said I have a new name because I'm starting a new life. I ran over 200 races and I'll be five years old soon. I'm really happy that I get to move into a house soon and be a "pet."
When the volunteers visit, I stay right by their side. I'd much rather lean on them than run around with a toy like that silly Rory dog. I'm hoping the volunteers will get accustomed to me by their side. Then I'll just follow one of them to the car and they won't notice until we're home.
I'm moving to a foster home this Saturday, so you'll see me soon at Meet & Greet events. I think I'd like to live in a nice, quiet home where I can just hang out with my forever person after a nice, refreshing morning walk. I practiced counter surfing at the vet, so I think I'm ready.

About me:They picked the right name for me! I am SO fast. You should see me run around the exercise yard with my toy! I've included a couple photos so you can get the idea...
I can't wait to find my forever person and start my life as a pet. I've heard I'll get to go for walks and car rides, and to play with squeaky toys whenever I want. I'm so excited my toes are wiggling!
I'll have my no-puppies surgery and be ready to go home with you before Halloween, so file your adoption application soon! The volunteer told me she has a picture of me in which I look like the Headless Horseman. She promises to post it on the SA GREYS FaceBook page before Halloween, so watch for it! I'm very cute, if I do say so myself.

About me:I'm happy to have joined the SA GREY family, but I'm even happier to be out of their kennel. The non-greyhounds talk constantly and it stressed me out. I guess the volunteers noticed I was shaking all the time and let me go to the front of the foster home line.
I like my new foster mom and my greyhound foster brother, Dino. In one of my pictures, I'm wearing my new harness donated to SA GREYS. Thanks Auntie Paula!! I'll let you know how I'm doing in foster once I'm settled.

About me:I'm Keeper and I"m a keeper. Everyone says I'm "striking." I'm not sure what that means, but they say it in a happy voice so I assume it's a good thing. I'm only one year old and love to play with my toy during turnout. I also like getting soft pets. I'm super excited to find my forever family so I can chase toys and get soft pets any time I want!

About me:They should have named me Wiley. I had heard the rumors about the land of squeaky toys and pets on demand, so I hatched a plan. When the kennel volunteers came out on Sunday I turned my nose up at food and gave them my best "I'm so pitiful" look. It worked!
Turns out, the rumors were true. Life as a pet is SWEET! I am feeling a little guilty about jumping ahead of the other dogs in the foster home line, so if you could, would you please give them a foster or forever home? They're really nice dogs, just not as cunning as me.

About me:Aura is a "greyhound mix" who was turned into PACC. SA GREYS partnered with PACC to foster Aura, and find her a good home.
I'm Aura. I just moved into a foster home where I live with a male greyhound and kitties. I like my new foster dad and foster siblings. Everyone keeps telling me I need to put on some weight before I get adopted, so I'm going to focus on carb loading. I'll be ready to go home with you in no time!

About me:I'm Downey. I dislocated my shoulder when I was racing other greyhounds. My doctor at VSCOT popped it back into place and gave me a cool looking sling. I gave them kisses in return, but I think they're still going to want money from Jackie's Fund.
The vets at VSCOT are awesome doctors and surgeons, but not the greatest photographers. I'm MUCH cuter than these photos indicate.
