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

Call Chris Miller, at (817) 366-6264 or email if you can volunteer.
A “HOWL-I-WEEN” 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?
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!
