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:
So, I'm Bandit's sister. You may remember him. He's the sneaky hound who faked being sick and landed a foster home his second day in the kennel. I hate to admit it, but I tried to follow his lead.

I successfully convinced the SA GREYS folks to take me to the vet the day after I arrived. I was so excited the plan was working I MAY have forgotten to look sick and pitiful. They got wise to my shenanigans, and I'm still in the kennel.

Oh well, I understand tomorrow is spa day, and they're going to give me a nice bath and brushing so my pretty black fur shines. I guess I'll wait my turn for a foster home... If you volunteer to foster, the line may move more quickly. Just sayin'

About me:
I'm Gwen. I'm happy to be part of the SA GREYS family, but I'm really looking forward to moving out of the kennel. The volunteers and the other greyhounds are nice, but those other dogs never stop talking.

I'm looking for a quiet home where I can hang out with my forever person and maybe go for a nice, peaceful walk every day. Does that sound good to you? I'll be ready to move in with you in early September. You've got lots of time to get a nice soft doggie bed to lay by your feet near the sofa.

Breaker

Born: October 1, 2010
Color: Dark Brindle with White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
They call me Breaker because I'm a heart breaker. Not only am I dashingly handsome, I love to have fun. I love chasing toys and playing with the volunteers. I hear them laughing at me when I'm playing. They also seem pretty happy when I stop by to cuddle and lick their faces. I think I'll be a good pet because I'll do my best to make you smile and laugh too. All I need in return is a good squeaky toy and you!

Copper

Born: March 4, 2012
Color: Brindle with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
My new name is Copper - the volunteers says my pretty eyes look like coopper pennies. I LOVE to run around the exercise yard and play with toys. I've heard I'll get to do that whenever I want once I'm a "pet."

There are lots of rumors around the kennel about this "pet" thing, all of them good. I'm told I will take the next step in my journey, no-puppies surgery, on August 22 and I'll go to my foster home the next day. After foster, I'll go to my forever home. I'm SO excited!! I think I'll take my excitement out on my stuffie.

Jesse's Chance

Born: Unknown (4/14)
Color: Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: pending

About me:
Little Jesse is a greyhound mix who was scheduled to be euthanized because he tested positive for Parvo and had an injured leg. PACC reached out to SA GREYS and we jumped at the chance to save him.

Jesse was a love bug from the beginning, despite illness and injury. Multiple re-tests revealed Jesse does not have Parvo, but he does have a broken leg. He will undergo surgery in the near future to correct the break, which had already partially healed incorrectly.

Jesse was snapped up by an adopter the first day, and is living in his forever home in foster-to-adopt status. His adoption will be final once he is healed and neutered.

Whiskey

Born: 1/4/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: pending

About me:
I hurt both a front and rear leg last week racing, so I was allowed to leave the track and become a pet. I didn't know what that meant, but I'm a happy guy who's pretty much up for anything.

I ended up at a house with a nice lady who pets me and plays with me. She has a BIG back yard too. She says I'll be able to run and play whenever I want as soon as my legs feel better. I'm pretty content just snoozing on a dog bed near her feet for now... I'd love to snooze at your feet and play in your back yard. Just fill out one of those adoption applications thingies. Then we'll both be happy.
