Getting Involved: Volunteer for Arizona Greyhound Rescue

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

We always need foster homes & have an urgent need for temporary homes for new hounds!

AGR has an ongoing need for foster homes while our hounds await adoption. If you can open your home and your heart to foster an AGR hound, please read the foster requirements, fill out a foster application, and email foster@azgreyhoundrescue.org with any questions.

RamaSay Hello to AGR's Newest Service Dog Trainee!

Rama passed her Handi-Dogs assessment and will begin the first phase of training in January to become a psychiatric service dog. We are so proud of this beautiful girl! Rama came to AGR from PINAL COUNTY ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL where she was surrendered by her owner.

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 2013, 39 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
