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.

Tiffany

Born: 8/09/12
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I'm Tiffany. I dislocated my ankle running as fast as I could, so I had to retire. I got to move into a house with a bunch of other dogs. They all seem nice. I tried to play with one of them, but then I realized my leg wasn't working right (and I was on a leash.) This pet thing seems pretty easy. All I have to do is nap on a soft bed, eat yummy food and get pets. They tell me once my leg is working I'll get to go on walks around the neighborhood too. I can't wait!

Rosie (Kismet)

Born: 1/01/14
Color: Dark Chocolate
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I was running around lost, so someone took me to the "shelter." When no one came to take me home, a shelter volunteer decided I was a greyhound mix and contacted SA GREYS. The ladies who picked me up called me Kismet; the lady who let me live with her calls me Rosie, so I guess I have two names...Now all I need is a forever family to give me a last name! (Don't tell anyone, but I'm not a greyhound. Some people think I'm part Laborador and part German Short hair Pointer. I'll never tell.)

Archer

Born: 5/25/09
Color: Black w/ Grey
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm Archer. Asher and I are really excited to start our lives as house pets. We've heard all the stories about delicious snacks, squeaky toys, nice walks, and playing on a soft dog bed near our forever people. We saw some white, feathered squeaky toys in the back yard, but our foster mom wouldn't let us play with them. Oh well, there were other toys inside. I'd love to live with a person who is retired like me or spends a lot of time at home. I'm going to nap now, and dream about my forever home. Maybe when I wake up it will be real!

Asher

Born: 5/25/09
Color: Black w/ Grey
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

About me:
I'm Asher. My twin brother, Archer, and I just retired and moved into the Lazy Grey Ranch. There are a lot of greyhounds laying around here, so I guess it's aptly named. There is a pen with white, feathered clucking things in the back yard. I think they should let me in that pen to "meet" the white things. They look chasable and possibly tasty. Anyway....I'm nearly six years old so I'd love to move into my forever home soon. I've got a lot of plans for my pampered pet years.

Calista

Born: 10/21/12
Color: Brindle with White
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster2adopt
Cats?: Yes
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: pending

About me:
Auntie Liz picked me up at the track earlier this week and drove me to a lady's house. I've never seen a house before so it was really interesting. There were a bunch of other greyhounds and I got to play in the yard.

The other greyhounds told me I will move into a different foster home soon and then a forever home. I'm really excited about living in a house, spending time with people who pet me and play with me, and exploring the world outside the track!

Daisy (Sky)

Born: 9/26/11
Color: Brindle
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: coming_soon

About me:
I ran as fast as I could during a race, then something in side me twisted the wrong way and I got really sick, really fast. My kennel person drove me to the doggie emergency room and SA GREYS agreed to take care of me.

I had surgery to remove my spleen and tack my stomach in place so it can't twist again. I feel great now and am having fun running around the house with my foster brother and sister greyhounds. I can't wait to have my very own forever home and people!
