AAGI has received several questions regarding the reported leptospirosis cases in Maricopa County and also about the vaccine.
Ariel Cooper, DVM works in the East Valley and owns an AAGI greyhound. She has graciously provided us with the information on this page of our site.
PLEASE NOTE: decisions about vaccination and/or what and where is safe for your dog should be made in consultation with your veterinarian.
Arizona Adopt A Greyhound is proud to be one of the nation’s largest Greyhound Adoption agencies. Lots of dedicated and hard working volunteers have made AAGI the successful program it is today.
We keep all of our dogs in foster homes. We host or attend various special events throughout the year as well as regular Meet & Greet events so people can see what wonderful pets these “greyt” dogs make. We have relationships with racing kennel owners who like us to take their dogs, plus the ever returning stream of dogs coming back for divorces, deaths, moves or finances. We always have dogs for adoption!!

Stop by to say hi and learn more about adopting a greyhound. Since our dogs are fostered in homes all over the valley, available dogs are NOT usually on site but we always have “floor models” on hand along with any outgoing placements so you can see what terrific dogs they are. The New Adopter Orientation is from 6:00 – 7:00pm and required prior to any adoption. We appreciate you emailing us that you plan to attend.
**In months that have a 5th Friday we will be at PetCo from 4:30-6:30 pm but will only schedule an Orientation on request.
