Arizona Greyhound Rescue coordinates greyhound adoption in and around Tucson/Green Valley, Pinal County, and the southeast suburbs of Maricopa County. If you are in the Phoenix area, we may be able to serve you. Or we may recommend that you fill out an application with Racing Home Greyhounds or Arizona Adopt A Greyhound. Also, The Greyhound Project maintains a list of all greyhound adoption organization in the US.
The Board will review your adoption application. If approved, a home visit is scheduled.
If the Board approves the findings of the home visit, a time is scheduled at our kennel for the adoption. Please know if you already have dogs, you will be required to bring them to the kennel so our behaviorist can observe the interaction. If there are no issues at that time, the adoption can proceed.

AGR realizes that everyone has various amounts of time and skills to offer and we appreciate everyone for their efforts great and small.
