Getting Involved: Volunteer for Arizona Greyhound Rescue

Bob Mittan, 2014 Volunteer of the Year
Congratulations to Bob Mittan,
2014 Volunteer of the Year

As with most pet-related, non-profit organizations that save lives, volunteerism is vital to our success. There are many soothing hands and dedicated hearts that go into rehoming one dog. AGR realizes that everyone has various amounts of time and skills to offer and we appreciate everyone for their efforts great and small.

Please peruse the list to see what you can do to help. Read more about volunteering for AGR

Arizona Greyhound Rescue

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 2014, 35 hounds were adopted! Read more about AGR

We do not adopt 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

BoomerWe have a greyhound mix named Boomer who is ready to find a permanent home. Last Fall, he was surrendered at PACC and was a very sick boy. He also had behavior problems.

His foster Dad reports that Boomer does very well on a leash and has learned how to comfortably be around other dogs and people.
