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.

Phoenix

Born: October 1, 2012
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
My new name is Phoenix. I'm a goofy puppy who liked being close to people A LOT more than I liked running. The other dogs tell me not to feel about being a racing failure. They say it will work out for the best.

Diego was telling me about going to the beach. I want to go too, so I took a few "beach" shots today. Then I heard about Rebel's awesome roach featured on the SA GREY Facebook page. I want to be awesome too, so I started practicing my roach. I think it will be easier when I have a soft pillow.

Madison keeps asking me what "get the toy" means. I have absolutely no clue, so I couldn't help her. If you know, stop by for a visit. I want to succeed at being a pet and I can use all the help and intel I can get! Maybe you could bring a doggie birthday cake for me. I promise to share.

Madison

About me:
My name is Madison. I'm enjoying my summer vacation at the SA GREY kennel so far. The other dogs and the volunteers seem nice. They keep throwing a red thing around and telling me to "get the toy!" I have no idea what that's all about, so I just distract them with my beauty and sloppy kisses. I'll be ready to live with you in early October after I have my no puppies surgery. I can't promise I will "get the toy" but I will snuggle.

Diego

Born: Sept 10, 2011
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Diego. I am a happy boy, whether playing with my new toy or getting back rubs from the volunteers. I was trying to convince them that they should take me to dog beach in San Diego in honor of my new name. They weren't buying it, but said I should ask my forever person to take me.

Turns out I don't have a forever person yet. Would you like to be my forever person and run with me on dog beach? Just think about it... the lapping of the waves, the wind in our fur (okay, my fur), a graceful hound prancing by your side... I've submitted a photo of me gracefully running so you can better picture it in your mind. It would be fun and who doesn't need more fun in his or her life!

Picasso

Born: Sept 20, 2010
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I am Picasso and I am an artist. I don't work in oils or watercolors. My medium is monkey business. When I moved into the SA GREYS kennel yesterday, my new best friend was hanging from my door waiting for me. He's a big pink monkey and his name is Barry.

This morning the volunteers let us out to play together. We had a lot of fun running around, then I stopped to get some nice pets and scratches. I can't wait until Barry and I move into our foster and forever homes, when we can run around and play anytime we want. Do you have room in your house and your heart for us?

Gina

Born: August 9, 2012
Color: Black with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Kennel
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

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'

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!
