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.
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.
On Wednesday, March 27th, Mary Freeman was interviewed on the Buckmaster Show (Local Tucson KVOI 1030 AM) about SA Greys. Forward ahead to 45:30 to hear the start of her segment!
Lancelot became part of the SA Greys family on March 7th. He was a tall, handsome, black boy and he carried himself with grace. Named "Smoo's Lancelot," he was born on November 24, 2010. He was not a racer; his career consisted of 2 races in Tucson. He was just 2 years and 5 months old.
Shortly after he came to the SA Greys kennel, enlarged lymph nodes were noticed. After tests, he was diagnosed with lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer. His life expectancy was less than 2 months.
On Friday, Lancelot left the kennel to spend his only weekend enjoying a home and family life with the Hall family. He went on walks, had Dairy Queen multiple times, discovered squeaky toys and slept on his own soft bed. Late Sunday afternoon with Cindy Hall and Liz Troudt by his side, Lancelot crossed over the Rainbow Bridge .
Rest in peace sweet Lance. Your time on this earth was far too short, you touched all our hearts.
Casey the greyhound has probably never seen a baseball or run to first base. But as a 3 ½ year old racing greyhound, he’s raced around the track more than a hundred times. His last time out of the starting box, Casey struck out with a broken hock.
Fortunately for Casey, the team at SA Greys picked him up and have started him on the process to recovery. Unfortunately, like with the recent broken hock hound, Basco, costly surgery was required. Once again, we are looking to raise funds specifically to address the expenses directly related to his injury, to help transition Casey into his deserved retirement.
If you can spare a few dollars, head over to our Casey Status Page and donate. Every single dollar helps us get to our goal.
Update: The Fund is already over $1,780, more than half way to our goal. After a fabulous start, donations have slowed down. Time to raise the visibility of our effort. Please help us get the word out.
Casey is humbled by the generosity, and looking forward to his forever home.

On Friday, April 19, Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption will host a Memorial Service at Reid Park to celebrate the life and times of our fabulous greyhounds while encouraging others to adopt. On this special evening SA Greys will honor and remember those beloved greyhounds in our lives who have crossed to the Rainbow Bridge.
People came. The wine flowed. People mingled and noshed. People walked among the wine displays eating cheese and grapes. There was laughter. There were old friends meeting new friends. Everyone wanted to win those awesome raffle prizes. Foster dog Herbie was a star; he was proclaimed the most amazing dog.
Head on over to the Blog to read more about the fun that was had!
