More info on how they rescue greyhounds:

In 1992 Joan and Steve Randles wanted to adopt some greyhounds from the Tucson Greyhound Park, but there was no program in place to allow the dogs to be placed when they were no longer viable racing dogs. The Randles were finally able to get the hounds through PACC. With the help of friends, large crates were donated and four hounds came to the Randles’ home where they lived in the laundry room until they were placed in homes. In 1994, the Randles incorporated Arizona Greyhound Rescue, and in 1995 received non-profit status.

Since its inception, Arizona Greyhound Rescue continues 23 years later to provide services to our community by using dedicated Volunteers who participate in kennel turnout and new dog intake; home checks; Meet-and-Greet events at Petco, Petsmart, and Bookman’s; and transporting dogs to and from events.

With the help of our many volunteers AGR has placed over 2,000 hounds in forever homes since we began in 1992.
