How Can You Help?
All sales promote AGA's mission and help raise funds for the greyhounds in our adoption program!

We also welcome donations of dog food, crates, beds, toys, collars/leads, muzzles, Heartgard, Frontline, shampoo, and any other item that can benefit the greyhounds.

We Need Foster Homes! Can you open your heart and home to one of our loving Greyhounds?
Austin Greyhound Adoption is staffed entirely by volunteers dedicated to finding loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. Foster homes are always needed to introduce people to these gentle creatures. Without foster homes, these greyhounds might have no place to go!
Foster families help newly retired racing greyhounds adjust to life in a home. They introduce their foster dogs to things they may not have seen on the farm or at the track, like sliding glass doors, mirrors, stairs, tile floors, ceiling fans, and more. They get to know each dog's personality which helps us to find the best forever home possible.
Austin Greyhound Adoption pays all medical expenses for greyhounds in foster care, and all we ask of foster families is that they love their foster dog like one of their own, feed it, and talk to prospective adopters about their foster dog. Nobody knows the greyhounds in our program like their foster families!
The toughest but most joyous part of fostering is placing your foster dog into its new home. Although it can be sad to see them go, the sorrow is quickly overtaken with the joy of matching a greyhound with its new family.
The number of greyhounds we can bring into our program is limited only by the number of available foster homes. Please contact us if you would like to open your home and heart to a greyhound on their journey from the track to their forever family.
