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:I raced around in circles for a long time, then broke my leg. I'm so happy I will celebrate my fifth birthday next week in my new foster home. I'm really enjoying my foster siblings - the kitties and the other dogs. Also, my foster mom feeds me roasted chicken from a place called the grocery store. YUM!! This grocery store thing sounds interesting... I've asked my foster mom if I can go with her to get groceries, but she won't let me. She said she'd take me to PetsMart or Petco instead, so I can charm a forever family. Sound like a plan. Maybe my forever family will take me to the grocery store. :)

About me:I think Storm is a good, strong name. Also, my brindle patches kinda' look like storm clouds. However, my personality is more like a bright blue, sunshiny day. I LOVE people and my foster brother, River. I clomp after them when they move from room to room so I can stay close. I'm looking forward to getting my cast off so I can run and play with the other greyhounds. It sure looked like fun! I am hoping to find a foster person or family who wants me by their side almost all the time.

About me:I went directly into a foster home because I had to have surgery to fix my broken leg. The cast hasn't slowed me down a bit! I love being close to my foster mom and dad, and am happy to clomp along after them, room to room.
The transition from racing greyhound to pampered pet was pretty easy. All I have to do is roo that I'm hungry or want to go outside, and they feed me or let me out. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE my new toys. Toes crossed I'll be snuggling with my forever family soon.

About me:I'm Frosty. Well, at least that's my name. I think I'd like to stay in the southwest so I'm never REALLY frosty. I had to have surgery to fix my broken foot, so I was taken directly to a foster home after I visited the vet. Even though my foot still hurt, I grabbed my new squeaky toys as soon as I got home and gave them all a good squeak! I had heard rumors of toys that squeak, and I'd been waiting to do that!!
I am living with another greyhound, a miniature pincher, a cat, kids and of course, my foster Mom and Dad. I'm totally cool with everything - yes, pun intended. I'm going to put more energy into healing and less into squeaking so I'll be ready for my forever home soon.

About me:Here's a story 'bout a dog named Brady.... That's ME!! They don't let us watch reruns at the kennel, but a volunteer said something about a bunch of kids, a big house and my very own yard. Sweet! I'll be ready to move in as soon as I have my no-puppies surgery. I know I'm going to LOVE living with you, even if you don't want to call our pack the Brady Bunch!

About me:I am Legend. I definitely have stories to tell... I didn't have to race as long as other dogs because I had a sore leg. I'm doing fine now that I'm in the SA GREYS kennel. The volunteers keep a leash thingy on me when I'm in the exercise yard so I don't hurt my leg again. I don't mind. I'd want to stay close to the peoples anyway and I can still pounce on stuffies. I think my leg would feel A LOT better if I was laying on your sofa being hand fed jerky treats. Just sayin...
