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
Arizona Greyhound Rescue is having an online fundraiser to create a Monsoon Storm of donations, and raise $5,500 by the end of this monsoon season! That's soon, so please don't miss your chance to help!

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. And ALL 19 hounds have found their forever homes already!
Simon is a handsome blue brindle boy who was the last of the 19 hounds to go to his forever home! Congratulations to Simon and his new family!
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.
ASAVET brought their mobile unit to our kennel and Dr. Karter Neal performed surgeries and dental cleanings on our greyhounds. Four are available for adoption now, and the others will be ready for adoption soon!
Check them out... Adoptable Hounds!
Congratulations Daisy, who is now known as Destiny.
And our best wishes to Buttercup and her new family!
