Welcome to Austin Greyhound Adoption!


Our Mission...

Austin Greyhound Adoption’s (AGA) primary mission is to find responsible & loving homes for purebred greyhounds after life on the racetrack and to acquaint the public with the desirability and availability of greyhounds as pets.  AGA is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes as defined by section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. 

Small dog and cat testing, as well as other behavioral assessments if needed, are done so that a better placement may be achieved.  Our hounds are taken to AGA's veterinarians immediately upon arrival to be spayed/neutered, heart worm and parasite tested, teeth cleaned, vaccinations, nails trimmed & bathed.
 
AGA is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff.  We do not operate a commercial kennel facility and are totally dependent on foster homes, adoption fees, and generous financial contributions from the public.  All funds received literally go to the dogs!




Giving Is Better With Friends


On March 1, it is time to rally the people of Austin to take action and support local nonprofit organizations (like Austin Greyhound Adoption!) 
with critical operational dollars for life-changing programs and services, especially when this investment is needed the most.
We are challenging Central Texans to think of one person, one family member, one coworker to join this movement. 
When social services are increasing in demand and the opportunities facing our region are vast, 
this community needs our neighbors to show up and inspire.

Did you know that vet costs to intake a hound 
and ready him/her for adoption can cost $300 to $500 or more?

Austin Greyhound Adoption has placed over 440 Greyhounds in loving homes and still counting!
Adoption fees only cover part of the cost of readying a Greyhound for adoption.
The remainder is paid for by generous donations by Hound-lovers like YOU!
Your tax-deductible donation will help even more hounds race into loving homes!


Every purchase benefits the AGA Hounds!
