AGA welcomes everyone to our monthly 'Meet & Greets' at various locations in the Austin and surrounding area. Meet and Greets 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.
Please like us on our Facebook page & follow us to see new dogs & community news.
AGA is proud to present our new AGA approved t-shirts. They are a great addition to our fundraising efforts. For a $12 donation you can sport the AGA colors too. Give a shout out to Chris at email@example.com if you would like to get one of these great shirts.
As always 100% of all donations go directly to the hounds.
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 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.

AGA is in need of Loving Foster Homes
for retired racers.
Please consider opening your home up
to Foster one today.
Please Contact Foster Coordinator Tim Kruger
for more information.
Foster families help newly retired racing greyhounds adjust to life in a home. They introduce their foster dogs to things they may not have seen on the farm or at the track, like sliding glass doors, mirrors, stairs, tile floors, ceiling fans, and more. They get to know each dog's personality which helps us to find the best forever home possible.
Austin Greyhound Adoption pays all medical expenses for greyhounds in foster care, and all we ask of foster families is that they love their foster dog like one of their own, feed it, and talk to prospective adopters about their foster dog. Nobody knows the greyhounds in our program like their foster families!
The toughest but most joyous part of fostering is placing your foster dog into its new home. Although it can be sad to see them go, the sorrow is quickly overtaken with the joy of matching a greyhound with its new family.
The number of greyhounds we can bring into our program is limited only by the number of available foster homes. Please contact us if you would like to open your home and heart to a greyhound on their journey from the track to their forever family.
AGA has recently taken in several Grey's that were in need of major medical procedures. Please see the following link and look for more to come if you would like to help these beautiful creatures.
