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!
