|Spencer says we’ll see you Saturday!|
Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption
1517 North Wilmot Road
Tucson, AZ 85712
For those of you who were unable to attend the Udall meeting, or did not get a chance to make a pledge, we hope you will also consider mailing a check. Anne Marie, our interim Treasurer, is ready, willing and very eager to deposit those checks and put them to work for you and for our greys.
SA Greys is not yet a 501c3 organization (the application process has begun). These initial donations are not yet tax deductible. Anne Marie did announce at the Udall meeting that IRS regulations governing non-profits provide for retroactive granting of non-profit status if the 501c3 application is approved by the IRS within 15 months of the organization’s incorporation. We fully intend to have that approval, and expect that it will be retroactive to February 17, 2012, the date our Incorporation was approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission.
When you make your donations, please be sure to keep copies of your checks for your records, so that you may take advantage of our non-profit status in your tax planning and preparation for 2012. You will also receive a written acknowledgement of your donations from SA Greys, which should also be retained for tax purposes.
Thank you so very much for your support.

Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption Unveils Our Logo
We hope you will like the look of our new logo!
Our Communications Team continues to outdo itself, with one major accomplishment after another. Mark M. in particular has worked his magic with this image.
We think it perfectly represents our greyhounds – the logo reflects their graceful presence, their serenity (most of the time!), and their beauty as they enrich our lives.
About Our Name
We are all very happy with our official name: Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption describes us well and distinguishes the mission to which we are committed. We have been wrestling, though, with the “shorthand” of SAGA.
We would like you to think outside the box… think SA Greys. We think this works on several levels. It is more descriptive, SA representing Southern Arizona, and Greys of course representing the dogs we serve, and treasure, and love so much. It reflects more than a collection of letters, more than an acronym, it leads us into our story.
Try it – we think you will like it.
We are delighted to announce to you that Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption has greyhounds!
If you want to volunteer and haven’t checked in yet, please contact us.
