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!

THANK YOU to everyone that supported AGA's 
spectacularly successful Greys Uncorked event on April 8th!! 

     We cleared over $4200 for the AGA greyhounds and hosted 91 attendees (including AGA staff and spouses working the event)! This major fundraising success will help a lot of greyhounds as AGA continues its mission throughout 2018.
     Thank you to our events team for all of their planning and coordination. Special thanks to Martha Grissom for spear-heading and organizing our silent auction, Stacie Bush and Pat Webb for working the raffle and door-prize tables, and Lewis Merritt for all the wonderful photos that you can see on Facebook! Also, AGA sends big Thank You's to Hawks Shadow Winery for their continued hospitality to AGA for the event location and to our many silent auction donors - all of whom really outdid themselves this year with their extraordinary contributions to the silent auction and raffles!!

WE   NEED   FOSTER   HOMES!

Adoption/Foster Application

...and sometimes, it's not even 6 weeks!

Greyhounds are waiting to come in from farms and tracks.
Adopters are waiting to adopt Greyhounds.
Help AGA bridge the gap between the track and adoption! 
If you have ever considered fostering a Greyhound,
NOW IS THE TIME!

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!
For more information, email the AGA foster team
at foster@austingreyhounds.org or call 512-895-9150, ext. 2


Cal here to remind you that April 
is National Adopt-A-Greyhound Month.

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!
