Arizona Greyhound Rescue
Arizona Greyhound Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) corporation committed to the belief that every sighthound deserves a loving, permanent and responsible home. With the help of our many volunteers AGR has placed over 1,400 hounds in forever homes since we began in 1992. In 2015, 38 hounds were adopted! Most were placed as pets and several joined our Heartfelt Hounds Program!
We do not place our hounds on a first come first served basis; but rather, we make an educated and conscientious attempt in matching the right dog with the right home. Read more about AGR

We Have New Hounds!
Einstein is a very confident and happy boy. He had a rough start and went in to kidney failure during his neuter surgery. We have a Fundraiser on LoveAnimals.com to help with his and our other new hounds' medical expenses.
Einstein smiles and soaks up all the attention he can get. We have started loving referring to him as "Al" while he recovers and gets ready to move in to a permanent home! He will be ready soon to grace your couch.
Rudolph has been with us since before Christmas! He is watching his new friends find forever homes and wondering why he keeps getting passed over. He would like to find his very own forever home soon.
We have welcomed 19 hounds in to our family from Tucson Greyhound Park, which closed their live racing venue in June. Eleven hounds have found their forever homes already. Here are pictures and stories of these happy hounds!
There is a constant need for foster homes for all our adoptable dogs. If you can provide a respite foster home and/or long term foster care, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our hounds need YOU!

Here are Blaze and President Jean Williams in the KVOA story: " Dozens of dogs will need homes as greyhound racing ends in AZ".
