Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption is an all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving forever homes for greyhounds.
We are the new greyhound adoption group in Southern Arizona, based in Tucson, we have more than 70 veteran greyhound adopters and volunteers. Our members have 5, 10, or even 15 years of experience in greyhound adoption. We have done it all: clean kennels, animal care, meet & greets, foster care, and, of course, adoption.
Our mission is simple: To connect greyhounds with loving forever homes throughout Tucson, Southern Arizona and Southern New Mexico.
WE DID IT! The $15,000 goal is matched 1:1 -- meaning $30,000 has been set aside for dealing with expensive specialized veterinary care beyond the normal cost of care. All this happened because of the generosity of an “anonymous” donor who provided the matching funds.
Thank you to one and all who donated to this special matching fund.
Every dollar you put in support of this fund means a huge impact on the life of an injured greyhound. Since August 1, your donation dollars have helped four greyhounds: Jackie, Kia, Flame and Parker. Not only have these dogs received specialized care but they have all been adopted and are in loving homes.
Jackie's Fund for Injured Greyhounds will be ongoing because the need is always there... to take care of injured greyhounds. Our goal is to give these hounds and others like them specialized veterinary care, rehabilitation and the chance to find loving forever homes.
Adopt, fall in love with a greyhound, who will capture your heart and change your life.
Donate, every dollar goes directly to the greyhounds. Your donation pays the vet, food and kennel bills. Check the Donation page for the wish list items you can help supply.
Volunteer, short term, long term or for special events. Get up close and personal. The greyhounds will love you and expect lots of heavy petting.
Last year, our sales of the stunning "Celebrating Greyhound" calendar was a smashing success. This year, we will be offering the calendars for sale, either via the shopping page on our website, or at our fall events. Regardless of where you purchase yours, you will have a stylish, fun calendar reminding you of the joys of Greyhounds throughout 2014.
They will sell out, so act fast wo ensure you get a copy. And another hint: they make GREYT Christmas gifts.
Imagine five young fraternity guys standing quite a distance from a cute, petite blonde with gorgeous brown eyes. Slowly, they approach her and ask each other with conspiratorial grins, "Do you think we could sneak her into the house? Or perhaps get her certified as emotional support and insist that we absolutely, must have her?"

It is time for another of the Shelter Challenges. Your votes each day help us win recognition, and prizes to help us with the hounds. Unlike votes for the President, where you can only vote once, you are encouraged to vote EVERY day for your favorite shelter.
The new system has made it super easy to do you can log in, it remembers who you are, and you can just vote. No excuses, vote early, and vote often! Join Team Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption.
Top vote getter in the nation gets a $10,000 prize (we can dream); #2 prize is $2,000. The highest vote-getter in each state gets $1,000. The second highest receives 100 doses of vaccines (such as Bordatella), #3 receives 50 dog beds and #4 receives 25 dog beds. The top winners are often small rescue organizations that have a dedicated voting base and social network.
