Adopt A Greyhound

Every sight hound needs a home, but not every home needs a sight hound. We do not adopt our hounds as first come first served; but rather, we make an educated and conscientious attempt in matching the right dog with the right home.

In an effort to match each hound with his or her best possible home, Arizona Greyhound Rescue has a multi-step adoption process that allows our volunteers to get to know potential adopters, and to provide the information and support necessary to ensure a successful placement.

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 where you fit in and what you can do to help. Read more about volunteering for AGR

Every month Arizona Greyhound Rescue incurs huge operating expenses. We lease the kennel and pay for all the hounds’ medical needs, including broken legs and other maladies.

Every retired racing greyhound deserves a wonderful home, don't you think?

Every donated dollar translates into food, shelter, or medical treatment, and is tax-deductible. Here’s a close approximation as to how we spend our funds based on one dog:

$600 – Boarding ($540) and food ($60) for one month
$350 to $400 – Discounted medical fees, including blood work, spay/neutering, and a dental cleaning
$63 – Provides vaccinations, collar, leash, and muzzle

Of course, these costs increase for dogs that come to us with injuries, illnesses, or other medical problems. And the longer the dog is with us, the higher the expenses climb. Sometimes it takes from three or four months with us to place a dog. But... that moment when a hound finds a loving, responsible forever home and the new adopter falls in love with their new dog -- PRICELESS!

Your generosity can help give greyhounds a new lease on life!

Thank you for your support!

Donation Information

You can now donate online, through payroll deductions,
donate by mail, or sponsor a hound.

Thank you for your generous and continued support! Because of our wonderful contributors, Arizona Greyhound Rescue is able to help place many sighthounds, including greyhounds, into permanent homes that will give these elegant creatures the kind of life that they so richly deserve.

As we continue to get more hounds off of the race track, to care for hounds with special needs, to care for hounds surrendered to us, and to cover our boarding costs and the increasing veterinary costs, we ask for your continued support. We are a non-profit, all volunteer-run organization and our continued existence depends on your help and generosity.
