Welcome to Austin Greyhound Adoption.

Find Your New Best Friend: Adopt a Greyhound Today!

Our AGA 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!

All adoption applications are processed in the order they are received. And then, prioritized for the best possible match to your family and individual living situation (other pets, children, personality of the hound, etc.) or preferences.

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! 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 their journey to their forever home!
