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!

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 460 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!

to adopt Greyhounds.
Help AGA bridge the gap between
the track and adoption! 

If you have ever considered 
fostering a Greyhound,

If YOU can help bridge that gap, please fill out an AGA Foster Application today.

There is no fee to foster and the reward is knowing that you've helped
a retired racing greyhound on they journey to their forever home!
