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:The first couple days, I just wanted to cuddle with the volunteers. Then I was introduced to my first squeaky toy. I'm not sure which I like best, the peoples or the toys, so I bounce from one to the other.
I've heard all the rumors at the kennel about being a "pet"... I know my family is out there somewhere, so I'm keeping a close eye on the gate. I love them already.

About me:I’m Hayley, and I can run like a comet when I don’t have a broken leg. My racing career is over, but I’m considering taking up soccer. I have a definite advantage over the two legged peoples because I will be able to kick the ball with all four paws, and run between their legs. Tee hee.
I would be willing to forgo my soon-to-be-illustrious soccer career if you’ll let me be your forever couch potato. Let me know. Until then, I’m keeping my options open…

About me:I am Slick. I wiggled my way into a foster home before I turned three years old! I love being a pet. I have two greyhound foster siblings to keep me company. I can go through the doggie door to go outside anytime I want. I get chicken for dinner every night. What's not to like! My foster parents give me lots of love and pets. They've even talked about taking me to dog beach in San Diego on their airplane. Sweet!
As great as all this sounds, what I really want is to find my forever family. I don't care if they feed me kibble instead of chicken or don't ever take me flying, as long as they love me forever. I think I'd be happiest with a doggie brother or sister, but I'm willing to try anything!

About me:I'm a bit of an introvert. I see Sammy and Leah playing with the peoples and it looks like they're having fun. I'm just not ready to do that yet. I prefer to stand on the sidelines until I'm more comfortable with my new environment.
I think I'd really like to live in a quiet home with another greyhound who could be my mentor and friend. If you give me time to adjust, I'll be the best friend you ever had.

About me:I think the person who named me was blond. Sorry, that wasn't nice. It's just that I'm proud of my pretty chocolate brindle fur. Maybe they named me Blondie because they were hoping I would have more fun. That would be okay.
I think it will be fun to have a forever person to love me. We can hang out together, go for walks, and play with squeaky toys. Well, from what I hear, I'll be the one who plays with squeaky toys but I am willing to share... If you want to be my forever person, I'd love to meet you. No need to wait. From what I hear, we tiny brindle girls go fast!

About me:I'm Leah the Love Bug. I LOVE people! I know the volunteers were trying to take pictures of me and wanted me to stay back, but I couldn't help myself. I want to be right next to them. (I know it looks like I was sneaking up on Cindy to bite her behind, but I wasn't... I'm a happy, bouncy, friendly dog. I'd never bite anyone in the behind. :)
I would love to cuddle with you on the sofa. I'll be ready for pick up in April, as soon as I have my no-puppies surgery.
