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
We welcomed six hounds from a farm in Kansas in January! They have had their surgeries and dentals. Two of the brood moms have already been adopted, and the other four hounds will be available for adoption soon.
ASAVET again provided spay/neuter surgeries and dental cleanings at our kennel. We are grateful for this partnership!
In March, we will be bringing 4 lurchers from the Ohio Lurcher Project. Most Lurchers are 7/8th Greyhound and 1/8th Coonhound. The typical Midwestern Lurcher is the result of an NGA registered Greyhound, or a full-blooded hound, being bred with a Greyhound mix. While Lurchers are survivors of underground racing, their most common trait is that they love people. There is no safety net for these hounds except the American Lurcher Project. You can also check them out on Facebook. Estimates are that there are about 5,000 lurchers in need homes at the end of the mid-west racing season.
Please keep your adoption applications coming! And we also need your donations to help give our new babies a new leash on life!
