Available Hounds

for me-2

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:
My pet name is Mason. I was named by Michele as part of the Mother's Day fundraiser. She named me after her father, so I'm trying really hard to make her and everyone proud.

I like the boarding facility and all the other greyhounds. I'm just hanging out and taking it easy, waiting my turn for no puppies surgery. I've heard I'll have surgery just prior to Memorial Day weekend. Maybe I'll get to eat hot dogs in my forever person's back yard! That would be awesome.

Hera

Born: 11/29/10

Gender: Female

Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes

About me:
I"m Hera, named after the Greek goddess of family. A lady named Cheryl named me as part of her Mother's Day gift. Rumor has it she's going to bring me my very own toy. I may lick her.

I'm a confident, happy girl. I didn't have any problem adjusting to the boarding facility. I've been out running the boy dogs for years, so living with a bunch of them doesn't scare me a bit. With that said, I'm excited to move into my very own foster home to learn now to be a pet dog instead of a racing dog. I'll try to be the best at that too!

Lindsey

Born: 4/2/13
Color: Dark Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Lindsey. My twin brother Tony broke his leg racing one day, so he left the track. I didn't know where he went, so I decided I had better break my leg too. The very next day, I did it. It probably wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done, but I found Tony! I had surgery at Briarcrest the day after Tony did, so we hung out together in recovery. (Thanks, Jackie's Fund!) Tony and I don't live in the same foster home, but we're both safe and happy, so I'm okay with that.

Everybody laughs at my "helicopter" tail that is always going round and round. I can't help it. I'm really happy to be starting my pet life. If you let me be part of your family, I promise to make you smile and I'll try to use better judgment in the future.

Tony

Born: 4/2/13
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: No
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Hello! I'm Tony the Tiger. RRRRRRR. (That's my best play growl.) I broke my leg in three places last night, so I moved from my racing kennel at the track to a foster home. I'll have surgery next week.

There are SO many interesting things to see! They wouldn't let me sit in the front seat on the way to the vet, so I just crammed my head through the gap and lay my head on the driver's shoulder. I like people and wanted to see everything! When I was at the vet, I saw a box with fuzzy dogs in it. They said it was a "tv." I couldn't get the other dogs to notice or play with me, but I liked watching them.

I'm SO happy with my new foster people and can't wait until I can go on adventures with them or my forever family!

Marigold

Born: 2/20/12
Color: Light Fawn
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My new pet name is Marigold. Do you think my nickname should be Mari or Goldie? I'm a pretty golden color, so I'm thinking Goldy.

I was trying to run really fast at the track and broke my leg. I'm having surgery next week to fix it. Meanwhile, I'm hanging out with several other greyhounds. We rest of soft beds and are hand fed sausage and cottage cheese. If I had know pet life was like this, I might have broken my leg a little sooner!

Anyway, I'm really excited about getting my leg fixed and finding a forever home. I think I'll be great pet, so you should take a chance on me.

Jaden

Born: 2/04/13
Color: Black
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: With_work
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
Hello! I'm Jaden. I've heard the peoples say I'm a leaner love bug. I do like to lean on people because it seems to prompt them to pet me. Ahhhh.

I'm a pretty happy, chill hound. I was roaching in the back of the car on the way home from surgery to fix my shattered leg. No worries...the blanket was soft, the person transporting me was nice and I had a really good feeling about where I was going.

I have a good feeling about finding a nice forever home too. If you can feel me, come on out and meet me. You can foster me while my leg is healing, then finalize the adoption after I'm medically cleared and neutered (whatever that is.) Time for another nap...resting is good for my leg and dreaming about my forever home makes the time go more quickly.
