Join Our Monthly Roos Circle of Champions!
In 1992, Arizona Greyhound Rescue, ("AGR"), an all-volunteer organization, was formed to find homes for greyhounds when they were done racing and "petted out" by their owners from the Tucson Greyhound Park. In 1994, AGR was incorporated, and in 1995 AGR received non-profit status.
As they say, the rest is history. AGR continues 23 years later to provide services to our community by using dedicated volunteers who participate in kennel turnout and new dog intake; home checks; meet-and-greet events at Petco, Petsmart, and Bookman's; and transporting dogs to and from events.
Since its inception, Arizona Greyhound Rescue has grown tremendously... we've placed more than 1,400 dogs so far!
In 2013, AGR underwent an extensive strategic planning process where the mission was expanded to assure the continuation of the organization for many years to come.
While AGR's focus will remain greyhounds, it will also include all sighthounds, such as Afghan hounds, Borzoi, Saluki, and Irish Wolfhounds. In addition, AGR has started a new program called Heartfelt Hounds. Some hounds have callings to be service dogs, facility residential dogs, or emotional support dogs. As new hounds come to AGR, they are evaluated to see if they are candidates for the program.
Your monthly donation helps form a predictable source of income we can count on to fund local services to sight hounds and their families and further our mission to Enriching our community and the lives of sighthounds through adoption, companion programs and education.
