Welcome to Austin Greyhound Adoption!
AGA's primary goal 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.
Helped Greyt Hounds! Support the AGA $5K
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.
Join AGA and the Greyhounds at Life in the City's first Annual Pet Fest!

2016 AGA Senior Class
Austin Greyhound Adoption Celebrates National Adopt A Senior Month
This year alone AGA has helped seven senior greyhounds. Five have found their forever families
and two are waiting for their match to a loving family.
Congratulations to our 2016 Seniors: CTW Secret Life (aka Remy), Topaz Lady Luck, Peggy Do Run,
BI's Fast Pace (aka Mariah), Atascocita Bowl, HK's Apoclypse, and KB's Hamlin.
Senior greyhounds teach us to honor age and dignity. They show us how the end of life can be just as interesting and rewarding as the beginning and that there is always something new to learn.
Most of the senior dogs available for adoption are brood mamas, however, we do get retired stud dogs too. Brood mamas have usually had a very successful racing career or have good bloodlines. Once their racing career ends, they are placed on farms to whelp puppies for the industry. When their puppy making days have ended they wait patiently for an adoption group to take them. Brood mamas and any senior
greyhound for that matter require very little effort. They are often referred to as "the best kept secret in greyhound adoption."
Won't you consider adopting a senior greyhound this month? Austin Greyhound Adoption will waive the adoption fee for any senior adopted during Adopt A Senior Month.
