Arizona Greyhound Rescue
Arizona Greyhound Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) corporation committed to the belief that every sighthound deserves a loving, permanent and responsible home. With the help of our many volunteers AGR has placed over 1,400 hounds in forever homes since we began in 1992. In 2015, 38 hounds were adopted! Most were placed as pets and several joined our Heartfelt Hounds Program!
We do not place our hounds on a first come first served basis; but rather, we make an educated and conscientious attempt in matching the right dog with the right home. Read more about AGR

Hounds, Hounds, and More Hounds!
We have welcomed 19 hounds in to our family from Tucson Greyhound Park, which closed their live racing venue in June. Eighteen hounds have found their forever homes already... Simon is still waiting for the home of his dreams. Here are pictures and stories of these happy hounds!
Simon is a handsome blue brindle boy who is ready to find his new home. He is the last of the 19 hounds we welcomed in to the AGR fold when live racing ended in Arizona. He isn't able to live in a home with cats or small dogs and needs an adopter who has experience with Greyhounds.
On August 9th, eight new greyhounds (4 males and 4 females) came to our family from Mobile Alabama where a lot of the hounds from Tucson Greyhound Park were taken after the end of live racing in Arizona. They are scheduled to have their surgeries on Monday, August 27th and will be ready for adoption soon after that!
Thanks to Team Up For Tucson, we were able to pull two greyhound mixes from Pima Animal Control in the last couple of weeks. And BOTH of these cuties have already been adopted.
Kermit, now known as Diesel, is a tuxedo, whippet mix who found himself at PACC after being rescued from a hoarding situation. We brought him in to our family mid-July. He has been adopted and is right at home with his new brother Harley, now known as Hero. Note that they are not overly impressed with Cesar.
This beautiful, 13-year-old Greyhound mix named Lily was surrendered to Pima Animal Control on August 5th. She has already been adopted and will spend her days with Mr. Fry at Sunrise at River Road and nights lounging on her new mom's couch.

Here are Blaze and President Jean Williams in the KVOA story: " Dozens of dogs will need homes as greyhound racing ends in AZ".
