Getting Involved: Volunteer for Arizona Greyhound Rescue

Bob Mittan, 2014 Volunteer of the Year
Congratulations to Joan and Ken Unwin, 2015 Volunteers of the Year

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

We need volunteers, including a Volunteer Director and a greyt Fundraiser or two! Please peruse the list to see what you can do to help. Read more about volunteering for AGR

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 Heartfelt Houndsplaced 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!

EinsteinEinstein 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.


Cossette's sister, Arabella, was adopted and now she would like to find HER new to our family. Cossette is a Dark Brindle and a very sweet young lady.



Diedra and Baby Girl are also new to our family. They are in foster homes and ready for their forever homes now!



Baby GirlDiedra is a happy and bouncy girl. Baby Girl is sweet and inquisitive.

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 foster@azgreyhoundrescue.org. Our hounds need YOU!
