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.

Downey

Born: 9/06/11
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

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.

I need a quiet place with a soft dog bed to recuperate from my injury. I promise I'll be a good boy if you let me stay with you. Just contact the folks at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.!

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!

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!

Dylan

Born: 8/09/12
Color: Black with White
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Unknown
Status: available

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.

ZigZag

Born: 4/06/12
Color: Red Brindle
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: Unknown
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: coming_soon

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 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!

Chili

Born: 5/7/11
Color: Red
Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No
Status: available

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.

Rosie (Kismet)

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

About me:
REDUCED FEE: $100

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:
Indy came back to SA GREYS after living in a home for a few months. Once Indy gets to know you, he is playful, affectionate and loves to be pet.

Indy is house trained, walks well on a leash and rides well in the car. Indy has lived happily as an only dog and would probably be happiest as an only. He could also live with a submissive female dog.

I'm Simon. Sam, the pretty red brindle girl dog, and I were named in honor of Sam Simons. He added a greyhound to the cast of The Simpsons and donated millions of dollars to help animals.

About me:
I guess I wasn't a very good race dog, but I think I'm going to ace this pet thing. I love to play with people and toys. I like snacks. I like taking naps on soft beds. I like playing in the yard. I even held still and let them give me a completely unnecessary bath! Come visit me and I'll demonstrate how I excel at all of these things! Look into my eyes and repeat after me, "Zach is the dog for me." Really, I am the dog for you! Pick me.

Asher

Cats?: With_work
Small Dogs?: Yes

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.

Gender: Male
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: No

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:
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'm Katie. I'm a bit of an introvert, so I'm just hanging back, watching what goes on around me. So far, living in a house instead of a kennel seems like a good thing. I have new best friend, Sam. We get to play in the yard together. We even got a bath and went on a road trip to meet kitties. I've heard living in a forever home will be even better. I can't wait!

Cats?: With_work

Status: coming_soon

About me:
Did you know I'm named after a girl race car driver? I think that's pretty cool!D When I'm running around the back yard, I pretend I'm driving in a NASCAR race. vROOm! I think I'd really like to hang out with a forever family, watching TV and just being together. Then maybe we could go for a nice, long walk or to the dog park. I know I didn't race as long as the other dogs, but I'm still super excited to start my pet life. I'm tiny, so I won't eat as much as those HUGE greyhounds living next door to me. I'll be good if you teach me how to be good. PLEEEEEASE pick me! In the mean time, I'll be dreaming about you...

I'm Grace. I am so happy I can hardly contain myself. I absolutely love being a pet. There are so many new things to see - like chickens! Who knew.... Anyway, I would love to go on adventures with you!! I am having no puppies surgery on April 3 so you should probably go out and buy a soft bed and squeaky toys now. Oh...and snacks. Don't forget the snacks. I may be a size zero, but I still like to eat.

Small Dogs?: Unknown

About me:
I'm Scarlett, named after a really pretty movie star. I could never be a movie star. I prefer to stay out of the limelight and live a quiet life. I guess I'm a bit of an introvert.

I won't come running up to you or jump on you, but if you take the time to get to know me, I'll be a great companion. I think I'd like to live with a quiet family and maybe someone who is a homebody like me. We can just spend time together, and maybe go for a nice walk every day. If that sounds good to you, fill out an online application thingy and come visit me.

My new name is Paddy because I joined the SA GREY family on St. Patrick's Day. I had surgery to fix some muscle damage to my front leg, but I'm doing great now.

I'm a mellow boy and would love to live in a quiet home.

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!!

Noel

Born: 11/01/12
Color: Black
Gender: Female
Housed where: Foster
Cats?: No
Small Dogs?: Yes
Status: available

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:
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!
