Available Greyhounds

AGA volunteers work very hard to bring you the healthiest and happiest hound for adoption.  

Our hounds are taken to AGA's veterinarian immediately upon arrival to be spayed/neutered, heart worm tested, teeth cleaned, vaccinations, nails trimmed & bathed.  

However, vet costs can run 

anywhere from $300 to $500 or more depending on what the newly retired greyhound's needs are when they are brought into our adoption program

 - and adoption fees only cover a portion of those costs.  

The remainder is paid for by generous donations by Hound-lovers like YOU!

Unfortunately, due to concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic and following recommendations from the CDC and government agencies,
AGA will be suspending all public events and Meet & Greets until further notice. 
However, AGA is still receiving hounds for foster and adoption!
Please complete an adoption or foster application and contact us directly to meet the greyhounds.

Lexi

Sponsor Lexi:
Lexi is good with dogs as long as humans make sure she plays nice. At first, she can be possessive with other dogs, but if you correct her and stay on top of it, she will be good within a week. Likes the yard but doesn't need a large one. Just hunts, doesn't run much. Would be OK in an apartment as long as she gets walks. Likes kids. Good in crate and will sometimes voluntarily sleep there at night. Very affectionate. Will whine when you leave, but she's fine. May grab some magazines or blankets when you're gone to remind you that you left her behind. If she doesn't have any dog friends, she probably needs humans that are around a fair amount. She really likes the company. She gets attached.

Sadie
Fawn, Female
Date of birth  9 NOV 2019
Tattooed, but never registered
or raced!
Sire: FGF Adam

Sponsor Sadie:

Sadie is every bit the 10-month old greyhound puppy! She has beautiful dark kohl eyeliner, tons of energy, a sweet disposition and curious nature. Sadie is so cute and quirky as she navigates learning how big and wonderful the world is! While we do not know the origin of her special abilities, Sadie came to us with a significant vision impairment and weakness in both right-side legs. She sees well enough outside to do full-speed zoomies with her foster sister and not run into anything, but in the house with lower light, it was more difficult, with (we think) the ability to only see light/dark/shadows. It took us about 6 hours to start deducing the sight impairment, but within just a couple of days, she had successfully mapped the layout of the house to get around. She is quickly learning to walk well on a short leash and trust that her human companion will not lead her anywhere unsafe. She is housebroken, not destructive, and sleeps all night. We think she will work best with a family that includes another grey or greys (the younger the better, because she will wear them out!), a family that is content with the furniture layout of your house, because once she learns it, she will make you doubt she has a sight impairment, and perhaps a family with a human home during the day or part of the day. Throughout the time she has been staying with us, she just keeps trying and believing in herself and is looking for her forever family who will be patient with her and believe in her too.

Mariah - AGA Lifetime Foster

Mariah has become a favorite Senior Gal within the AGA Family! As she has gotten older, though, she has developed a series of chronic benign skin cancers and small blood tumors that must be monitored and removed when necessary. 

AGA made the decision to make Mariah a permanent foster family member and assure that she gets the attention and medical care 
that she needs for the rest of her life.

Although she is not in any life-threatening danger, we just think she deserves extra TLC  and a "permanent" place to land with us!
