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:Extremely shy.
My name is Guinness and I’m a dark brindle male. I’m happy to be a member of the SA Greys family, but I’m extra shy about meeting people. The volunteers are very kind. They know it will take a little while for me to adjust to my new life, and they are all rooting for me. My kennel mates send me ROO’s of confidence and this helps me a lot. It’s so nice to have an outside area to my kennel. I can stand outside, breath in the cool morning air, and greet my greyhound kennel mates every morning. This I love. Maybe, in a week or so, I’ll try out for the choir. I’ve been told I have a very melodic ROO!

About me:I answer to Cami. I’m a gorgeous black female, elected by my kennel mates as the spokes dog for the group. Yes, we’re thinking of joining the greyhound union. I’m a natural for the job because I’m rather vocal. There’s just one problem. The union refuses doggie biscuits as payment for our union dues. Anyone know a good pawfur attorney?

About me:I'm Scotty, a tall red Brindle boy. I'm love everyone. I'm happy whether I'm chasing a tennis ball or getting pet. I've heard the kennel volunteers say I'm going to be a wonderful companion for some lucky person or family. It could be you!

About me:Dash is my name. I'm a little shy, but am getting more confident everyday. Now I look forward to running out the door to play with the volunteers. I love to pick up the string toy and try and sneak it into the kennel, but the volunteer tells me I must leave it for the next hound to play with. So, I settle for my big milk bone while I wait for breakfast.

About me:My new name, Bahama, suits me. I'm very laid back and can't wait to chill on the sofa with my forever peeps. Don't tell anyone, but I'm actually a little shy. Maybe after I get to know you better, I'll show you my party side. I'll be ready to move in with you before the Super Bowl, so save a spot for me close to the snacks!

About me:I've been told I'm one of a a kind - black fur, white eyebrows, pink nose. I may look different that other greyhounds, but I've got the same sparkling personality you know and love. I like to run around and play, but leaning against the volunteers and getting hugs and pets is heaven! I will be available to be your companion as soon as I have my no-puppies surgery. See you soon!

About me:I'm glad I have an Arizona name - Mesa. I lived in Alabama for awhile, but I really like it here. The volunteers at the kennel give good back rubs and let me play with a teddy bear. They tell me the next step is a foster home, and then FOREVER home. There are rumors about soft beds, long walks and toys that squeak. I'm going to do my best to get into one of those foster homes as soon as possible and report back to everyone here. I'll let you know how it goes...

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 can't wait to take long walks or even just sit on the sofa together and watch old movies. Auntie Liz says it will be my turn to get a foster, then forever, home soon. Yeah!

About me:I am Legend. I definitely have stories to tell... I didn't have to race as long as other dogs because I had a sore leg. I'm doing fine now that I'm in the SA GREYS kennel. The volunteers keep a leash thingy on me when I'm in the exercise yard so I don't hurt my leg again. I don't mind. I'd want to stay close to the peoples anyway and I can still pounce on stuffies. I think my leg would feel A LOT better if I was laying on your sofa being hand fed jerky treats. Just sayin...

About me:Here's a story 'bout a dog named Brady.... That's ME!! They don't let us watch reruns at the kennel, but a volunteer said something about a bunch of kids, a big house and my very own yard. Sweet! I'll be ready to move in as soon as I have my no-puppies surgery. I know I'm going to LOVE living with you, even if you don't want to call our pack the Brady Bunch!

About me:I'm Frosty. Well, at least that's my name. I think I'd like to stay in the southwest so I'm never REALLY frosty. I had to have surgery to fix my broken foot, so I was taken directly to a foster home after I visited the vet. Even though my foot still hurt, I grabbed my new squeaky toys as soon as I got home and gave them all a good squeak! I had heard rumors of toys that squeak, and I'd been waiting to do that!!
I am living with another greyhound, a miniature pincher, a cat, kids and of course, my foster Mom and Dad. I'm totally cool with everything - yes, pun intended. I'm going to put more energy into healing and less into squeaking so I'll be ready for my forever home soon.

About me:I went directly into a foster home because I had to have surgery to fix my broken leg. The cast hasn't slowed me down a bit! I love being close to my foster mom and dad, and am happy to clomp along after them, room to room.
The transition from racing greyhound to pampered pet was pretty easy. All I have to do is roo that I'm hungry or want to go outside, and they feed me or let me out. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE my new toys. Toes crossed I'll be snuggling with my forever family soon.

About me:I think Storm is a good, strong name. Also, my brindle patches kinda' look like storm clouds. However, my personality is more like a bright blue, sunshiny day. I LOVE people and my foster brother, River. I clomp after them when they move from room to room so I can stay close. I'm looking forward to getting my cast off so I can run and play with the other greyhounds. It sure looked like fun! I am hoping to find a foster person or family who wants me by their side almost all the time.

About me:I raced around in circles for a long time, then broke my leg. I'm so happy I will celebrate my fifth birthday next week in my new foster home. I'm really enjoying my foster siblings - the kitties and the other dogs. Also, my foster mom feeds me roasted chicken from a place called the grocery store. YUM!! This grocery store thing sounds interesting... I've asked my foster mom if I can go with her to get groceries, but she won't let me. She said she'd take me to PetsMart or Petco instead, so I can charm a forever family. Sound like a plan. Maybe my forever family will take me to the grocery store. :)

About me:If you be my bodyguard, I can be your long lost pal. Roo roo roo roo, roo roo roo roo. You can call me Al.... Sorry. From what I'm told, many of you may not get that musical reference. You CAN call me Al, 'cause that's my new name. I've been told I'm a handsome red and cream greyhound with a "pleasant disposition." Where do they get these volunteers?! I am a happy boy who would love to go on walks with you and then just nap by your side. Maybe we can take a road trip and I can roo along with you to songs on the radio! I think that would be a blast! I will have my no-puppies surgery at the end of March, so you've got a couple weeks to buy a nice soft dog bed and plan our road trip.

About me:I got my first wish. I am officially retired. No more running in circles - I get to be a pet!! My second wish is to find my forever family. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for, other than someone to love me. I think it would be nice if we did things together, like going for walks, watching TV or sharing delicious people food. :) I thought I might be able to slip that last one past you. Even if I can't have delicious people food, I will love you back ten times over. I get to move into a foster home at the end of March. From what I've heard it's pet boot camp, where I'll learn where to potty and what is or isn't a toy. Word in the kennel is... furry things that say "Meow" = not a toy. I'll try to keep that in mind. (Please note my cute little snaggle tooth in my photo. The volunteers say it's adorable...)
