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:Cami is a gorgeous girl who loves people, more than anything. All she wants is to be a companion. She enjoys playing with toys, going for walks or simply lounging around the house together. If you meet Cami, you will love Cami. She will return that love ten time over, and will make you laugh every day.

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:I'm Downey. I dislocated my shoulder when I was racing other greyhounds. My doctor at VSCOT popped it back into place and gave me a cool looking sling. I gave them kisses in return, but I think they're still going to want money from Jackie's Fund.
The vets at VSCOT are awesome doctors and surgeons, but not the greatest photographers. I'm MUCH cuter than these photos indicate.

About me:I'm Noel and I'm one of "the triplets," as we're known. My sisters and I all moved into the SA GREY kennel on the same date. It's nice to have them with me because I'm a little shy.
The kennel is pretty noisy. I'm looking forward to living in a house where it's just me, my foster or forever people, and maybe one or two other dogs. I can picture myself laying on a soft doggie bed while my person reads a good book on a Sunday afternoon. If that sounds like fun to you, you could foster or even adopt me. In the meantime, maybe I someone could bring me some ear plugs.

About me:I'm Jackson. I like to play with my new toy and run around the exercise yard. I'm not sure I can trust the peoples yet, but I check them out when they're not looking. Maybe next week I'll be brave enough to walk right up to them to get pets. Buzz and Sprite seem to enjoy it. Wish me luck!

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.)

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: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!

About me:My new name is Savannah. When I moved into the SA GREY kennel, I was assigned my very own toy. I even get to take it with me to my forever and foster homes. Mine is a bunny. I named her Bunny. I LOVE playing with Bunny. We run around the exercise yard together at the speed of light. Every once in awhile I drop her, so I have to go back and grab her. She likes it too. If you'd like to play with Bunny and I, and be our forever people, we're ready and waiting for you...

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!

About me:My new pet name is Raven. I LOVE being a foster dog! When my foster mom is at work I play with my new toys and nap on a doggie bed. My foster brother, Walter, keeps me company. When my foster mom comes home, I wag with all my might because I like spending time with her. She says I'm a sweet girl and I'll find a forever home in no time. I'm having my no puppies surgery this week, so I'll be available soon...

About me:I'm Diesel. I broke my leg when I was racing other greyhounds. Auntie Liz picked me up right away and took me to VSCOT to see the dog doctor. At first I thought the doctor was going to be a dog! I was relieved when the doctor was a person, and I was just confused. I had surgery on Friday so I should be better soon. (Thanks Jackie's Fund contributors!)
I tried to play with a fluffy dog in the lobby at VSCOT but Auntie Liz wouldn't let me, so I just lay down and pouted. I'm hoping my foster family will let me play with other dogs once my leg is healed. If my leg looks good tomorrow, I get to leave VSCOT and start my life as a pet. YAY!

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!

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:My new name is Holly. Noel and Joy probably already told you, but I'm the wild child. I LOVE running at full speed, chasing toys and playing tug-of-war.
There's a rumor that once we go to a foster or forever home, we get to go for long walks and to run around in dog parks. Yippee!! I'm ready to roll, so come on down to the kennel and get me!

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!

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.

About me:I'm the new guy on the block. It's a little awkward living with Archer and Archer and all the other SA GREY dogs at the Lazy Grey Ranch. They keep talking about all their races and "retiring." I'm a little young to retire and I never ran a single race.
I guess I'm destined to excel as a pet instead of a racer, and that's okay with me. I'm going to start work on my pet skills like napping and playing with a squeaky toy. You could come out and meet me now and I'll be ready to go home with you as soon as I have my no puppies surgery in early March!

About me:I'm trying to decide whether my nick name should be Chili Bean or Chili Dog. I have a lot of time to think right now. I broke my leg into seven different pieces during a race at TGP. The surgeons at VSCOT put it back together with plates, screws and wire. (Thanks, Jackie's Fund!)
Does that mean I'm a bionic chili dog now? They have me incarcerated in a crate, allegedly for my own good, so I haven't had an opportunity to see if I have any super powers. My foster mom says in a few weeks my leg will be stronger and I can test for super powers then.

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.

About me:I'm Keeper and I"m a keeper. Everyone says I'm "striking." I'm not sure what that means, but they say it in a happy voice so I assume it's a good thing. I'm only one year old and love to play with my toy during turnout. I also like getting soft pets. I'm super excited to find my forever family so I can chase toys and get soft pets any time I want!
