About

Foster care - If you have been sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the right time to jump into the foster pool, it's "go time." Providing a foster home for a TGP greyhound during these next two months will make a huge difference in the life of that greyhound. Become part of our foster care team and help a retired greyhound transition from a career as a racer to a beloved family pet. We are an all foster organization and we need your help. The primary goal of Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption is the successful integration of retired racing greyhounds into Forever Homes. The first step in this process is to place the newly retired greyhound in a foster home. Greyhounds fresh off the track have no house experience; they've never seen a TV, tile, stairs, kids, or other pets. Your one-to-one tender loving care and guidance will ready him or her for adoption into a forever home. (Greyhounds are generally quick learners.) No previous experience is required. Training is provided by members of Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption. We have dedicated and experienced volunteers to walk you through the process, work with you, answer questions and are available to provide support for you and for your foster.
