Orientation & Adoption


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 and any outgoing adoptions are done here so you can see what terrific dogs they are.  The New Adopter Orientation (required prior to any adoption) is at 6:00 pm and 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.

Phoenix Greyhound Park
3801 E Washington

PGP is located at 38th Street & Washington and the only complicated part is that you have to come through the traffic for Park & Swap. Turn into the main entrance, which is 38th Street, turn right, turn left and go straight towards the large 3-story building at the back of the property. There is an area that was used for Valet parking & that is where you can park. You will come through the big sliding gate in the wall to the covered parking in the back of the old paddock. We will have signs but if all else fails call Joni @ 602-999-2900.
