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:Boo came to us with a badly broken leg that required surgery. He also spent a long time at VSCOT overcoming complications. Boo was a tail-wagging, face licker, even while he was still undergoing treatment and not feeling his best. Boo is definitely going to be a "people dog" who will want to curl up in your lap on the sofa. He will be ready for adoption as soon as his leg heals.

About me:ZigZag came to us with a badly broken leg that required surgery. ZigZag also had to endure follow up surgeries because the bone protruding through his skin caused an infection, which is turn killed some of the skin surrounding the wound. Despite 14 days in VSCOT and significant pain, ZigZag is an absolute sweetheart. He is now resting comfortably in a foster home, learning the joys of being a pet while her recovers.

About me:I'm Sundance, named for my pretty reddish, glowing fur. I'm a happy boy who enjoys sprinting around the exercise with my new toy. (Thanks, Auntie Paula.) I also really like spending time with the people too and can't wait until I have one of my own!
The volunteers were telling me about the holidays coming up. I'm so excited I get to be a pet this Christmas! Maybe I'll get my own sock full of toys and treats!!! I don't understand the sock thing, but I'm in! If you bring me home I promise to roo as melodically as possible while you sing your holiday songs and to help you clean the dinner dishes. (YUM - hee hee)

About me:I like my new name Emily. It fits me. They tell me I'm tiny and ridiculously cute. I'm taking their word for it. I can tell you I'm a happy, bouncy girl who loves toys and people. I have SO much fun during turnout, just running around and then getting nice back runs from the volunteers. I hope I get to do that with my forever person before I turn two on December 22!!

About me:My new pet name is Domino. I've never played dominoes before, but I'm a pretty laid back hound, so I might like it. The volunteers keep telling me to "get the toy." I'm not sure what that's all about, but it's nice to spend time with the volunteers.
I've heard something called the holidays is coming. Rumor has it there is turkey and presents and forever people have time off, so you gets lots of walks and cuddles. I totally want in on that, so hopefully someone will pick me soon and take me home!

About me:Hello again, everyone. I met a bunch of you on FaceBook. Thanks so much for all the great suggestions for my new pet name. It was REALLY hard to pick one. I went with Dylan because Matt Dillon is a famous, fictional Marshal who chases bandits. I LOVE chasing my litter mate Bandit, it works for me. I also prefer the modern spelling. I won't be upset it you spell it differently on my NEW collar. HAHA. See how I just slid that in?
I'm just waiting my turn for a foster home so I can can have my neuter surgery. If you want to foster-to-adopt, we'll just cut out the middle man. I'm ready whenever you are.
