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.

Our Successful Heartfelt Hounds

Please read about the Heartfelt Hounds we have placed with partners or are currently in training and awaiting a match with their person.

We look forward to many more successful Heartfelt Hounds!


MacOur first success was in partnership with Operation Wolfhound in Sierra Vista. AGR successfully placed Mac, a psychiatric service dog, with a veteran who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder ("PTSD").

Mac Mac is a rescued greyhound placed by AGR free of charge with a veteran in Tucson. The veteran had been homebound for many months. Mac has given his person the confidence to leave the house and reconnect with his friends and family.

Mr. Fry

Mr FryAGR’s second successful placement was a rescued sighthound named Mr. Fry. He received this name because he was abandoned in a Fry’s food store parking lot and had figured out how to operate the automatic door so he could get warm.

Mr Fry

Mr. Fry is trained as a Therapy dog and is permanently placed with Sunrise at River Road, a senior living retirement and memory care center in Tucson.

Mr. Fry’s service has led him to competition in the American Humane Association HERO DOG AWARD this year. He did not advance to the finals, but he is truly an AGR Hero!


JewelOur third success came with the placement of Jewel as a trained Emotional Support Animal ("ESA"). She was placed to assist a veteran in Phoenix with his daily routine and activities.

Jewel is a Russian Wolfhound and was trained by one of AGR’s volunteers who fostered Jewel until her placement.


BlazeBlaze is our fourth success and was placed as a Service Dog with a female recipient. BlazeWhen Blaze was a newly petted out two-year-old retired racing greyhound, he was identified and assessed as being a viable candidate for the Heartfelt Hounds service dog program.

Blaze now serves as a trained Service Dog that provides support to his owner for balance and mobility issues as well psychiatric support.


Pippin - was Wallace

Wallace (now Pippin)Our fifth success is the placement of Pippin (his name was Wallace) with a recipient in Tucson.

Wallace / Pippin

Pippin and his person went through the rigorous service dog training with our partner, Handi-Dogs.
