Thanks to Team Up For Tucson, we were able to pull two greyhound mixes from Pima Animal Control. And BOTH of these cuties have been adopted.

KermitKermit, now known as Diesel, is a tuxedo, whippet mix who found himself at PACC after being rescued from a hoarding situation. We brought him in to our family mid-July. He has been adopted and is right at home with his new brother Harley, now known as Hero. Note that they are not overly impressed with Cesar.

LilyThis beautiful, 13-year-old Grey-hound mix named Lily was sur-rendered to Pima Animal Control on August 5th. She has already been adopted and will spend her days with Mr. Fry at Sunrise at River Road and her nights lounging on her new Mom's couch.

Trick, AGR service dog in training, is helping Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, promote Don't Leave Me, an organization that educates the public that Hot Cars Can Kill.

Adopt A Greyhound

Every greyhound needs a home, but not every home needs a greyhound. We do not adopt our greyhounds 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 greyhound 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.
