Getting Involved: Volunteer for Arizona Greyhound Rescue

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 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. Read more about volunteering for AGR

Monsoon Madness

AGR HoundThe Monsoons Have Officially Ended!
AGR has had a productive season, thanks to you... you have helped us raise $4,805 for the hounds. A sincere thank you to all who have contributed to the storm!

We always need foster homes for our new hounds!

Arizona Greyhound Rescue has an ongoing need of foster homes for our hounds while they await adoption. Watching a greyhound blossom during this transitional phase is a beautiful thing, and is one of the most important jobs our AGR volunteers take on.

If you can open your home and your heart to foster an AGR hound, please read the foster requirements, fill out a foster application, and email foster@azgreyhoundrescue.org with any questions.

Arizona Greyhound Rescue

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 2013, 39 hounds were adopted! Read more about AGR

We do not adopt our greyhounds 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
