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!

Please consider sponsoring one of AGA's available greyhounds by clicking the PayPal button
next to the hound you'd like to help race into retirement!

From Doc: "Mama Mia! What do you mean.....I'm not an Italian Greyhound????"
Check Doc out....He's available!

...and sometimes, 
it's not even 6 weeks!
The number of greyhounds we can bring into our program is limited only by the number of available foster homes.  If you would like to open your home and heart to a greyhound on their journey from the track to their forever family, contact us at
or (512) 895-9150 ext. 2

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 430 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! Please donate today!
