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 rescuing 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.
Arizona Greyhound Rescue is in constant need of foster homes for Tucson greyhounds while they await adoption.Greyhound socialization is a key component to successful adoption. Fostering is especially beneficial if your situation doesn’t allow for adoption of an animal at this time in your life. Fostering is one of the greatest gifts you can give to a greyhound. By getting a greyhound out of the kennel, you could be saving the life of a hound coming off the track with nowhere else to go.
"The more we give, the happier we feel. Volunteering increases self-confidence. You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity."

What does the mentoring program accomplish? It is an attempt to ensure a successful and lasting adoption by providing support, resources, and information to new adopters in the first critical days and weeks of a new adoption. Read more about our mentor program.
