Where does Arizona Greyhound Rescue's Money Go?

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?

Dr. Neal Neutering RavEvery 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:

Of course, these costs increase for dogs that come to us with injuries, illnesses, or other medical problems. Most dogs are adopted within 3 to 4 months.

Nora/Jasmine in the therapy pool Special needs dogs can be with us as much as a year. The longer the dog is with us, the higher the expenses climb.

But... that moment when a hound finds a loving, responsible forever home and the new adopter falls in love with their new dog -- PRICELESS!

AGR has been an IRS 501(c)(3) charity since 1995. Read more about AGR's Charity Status.
