Welcome to Austin Greyhound Adoption

Will You Buy a Pumpkin for Tasha’s Pumpkin Pie?

Tasha Pumpkin Pie

Tasha came to AGA because her previous owners had to move and could not take her. Born with an underdeveloped growth plate in one of her legs, she never had a racing career. She has always been a pet. She is small dog and cat friendly. Tasha turns four on September 24th. She has tested positive for heartworms. The treatment to kill heartworms is very aggressive and requires that the animal be kept confined and quiet, taken outside on a lead during her treatment period and transported to Great Oaks for the treatments themselves - all in all, a 2-3 month process. Great Oaks has estimated treatment costs to be between $800-$850 (everything included). That’s a lot of pumpkin seeds!

AGA needs your help to pay for Tasha's treatment and Tasha needs a foster parent who can provide transportation to Great Oaks Animal Hospital in Round Rock. If you can help, please email Chris at cmiller357@att.net or call her at 512-895-9150. Help save a greyhound life! Thank you.

Special Upcoming Events:

As we say goodbye to summer & hello to fall, please remember to mark your calendar with our special events.

  • A Greyt Fall Festival - Saturday, October 25th

    12noon-4 pm. Fun activities are being planned for you and your greyhound. A special event will be the blessing of the hounds, greyhound bobbing for weiners, longest tail, loudest rooooo, costume parade and contest (just to name a few). Admission is free, but we do ask you to bring a covered dish to share. Hot dogs, beverages and baked goods will be available for sale (for all you bakers, we could really use some help with this!!) There will also be a silent auction to raise funds for the medical care of our greys and raffles throughout the day. All funds raised from the picnic will be used for medical expenses for the greyhounds that come into the AGA adoption program. Want to help? Contact Chris Miller

  • Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Christmas Parade, Saturday, November 29th

    Kick off at 11:00 am. Want to help decorate the float?


  • Gift Wrapping at Barnes & Noble Book Store, Arboretum

    AGA’s been given three dates: Nov. 30, 3-8 pm; Dec. 15, 5-10pm; and Dec., 19, 1-6 pm. Two greyhounds at a time while we wrap (more humans are allowed). At least 2 humans and 2 greys max at each shift. This is always a lot of fun, and we get sizeable donations at these events because everyone is in the Holiday spirit!

AGA's primary goal is to find responsible loving homes for pure-bred greyhounds after life on the racetrack and to acquaint the public with the desirability and availability of greyhounds as pets.

AGA welcomes everyone to our monthly 'Meet & Greets' at various locations in the Austin and surounding area. Meet and Greets are are a great place to meet and learn about available and adopted greyhounds. Current owners and fosters will be there to let you discover how gentle, lovable, and sociable these dogs are and to answer any questions you have about them and the adoption process. Click the Events link for more information.

AGA is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Our volunteers work very hard to bring you the best possible hound for adoption. Small dog and cat testing are done so that a better placement may be achieved. Our hounds are taken to AGA's veterinarian immediately upon arrival to be spayed/neutered, heart worm tested, teeth cleaned, vaccinations, nails trimmed & bathed.

Hug them hounds!

Hound hugs back!
