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. 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. Most of our hounds are placed as pets but occasionally a special hound comes in to our family that is identified as a future service dog and enters our Heartfelt Hounds Program!
Heartfelt Hounds trains retired greyhounds and other sighthounds as service dogs to be placed with individuals with disabilities and veterans who suffer from medically recognized injuries and disorders.
For these programs, AGR has formed strong collaborative partnerships with well-established organizations in southern Arizona to assist in providing the proper evaluation and training and to aid in the placement of sighthounds as service dogs. Read more about AGR

Everyone has had their spay/neuter and dental cleanings. Cuddle lost a lot of teeth due to bad dental hygiene and will be spayed next week.
Kisses had a particularly hard time because, as we discovered, she is a bleeder. She crashed because she was bleeding uncontrollably into her belly. She first went to the Emergency Veterinarian and was stabilized. Then she was rushed to Santa Cruz Veterinary, where Dr. Karter Neal performed an emergency surgery at midnight. Kisses is recovering well and we believe that she will have a positive outcome.
The boys' surgeries were complicated as well. TMI? We are just letting you know that these dogs' medical expenses are more than expected, and we need your help.
ASAVET Charities provides veterinary services, including spay/neuter surgeries and dental cleanings, for all our new hounds. We are grateful for the partnership with this non-profit veterinary provider!
The ASAVET mobile unit was lost in a recent roll over accident. If you would like to help with replacement costs, please go to the

Article by Scott Barker
WATCHING A GREYHOUND RUN IS LIKE OBSERVING A FERRARI AT FULL THROTTLE. Speed, power, and beauty all mesh in fast-twitch muscle and double-suspension rotary gallop. Even an Olympic sprinter couldn’t catch that canine once it hits top speed. Read the full article...
