Arizona Greyhound Rescue has been operating in Southern Arizona for over 25 years. They are committed to the belief that every sighthound deserves a loving, permanent, and responsible home--their "forever home". AGR is an all volunteer organization that relies exclusively on donations and grants. In addition to placing retired greyhounds, AGR also works with local shelters to retrain and rehome all breeds, and helps place rescued sighthounds as service dogs with individuals with disabilities and veterans.
The AGR Capital Campaign is supporting the development of Sol Dog Lodge. Sol Dog Lodge is part of a comprehensive plan by AGR to enable the organization to rescue and place more dogs, and to help AGR achieve growth and financial self-sufficiency. Sol Dog Lodge will be a non-profit operation that will provide kennel services for all breeds awaiting adoption, top quality daycare and overnight boarding to the public, veterinarian care, assessment and training facilities to support AGRs mission. Sol Dog Lodge will also provide emergency boarding for pet owners facing their own personal challenges that might prevent them from caring for their own companions. Sol Dog Lodge will be located just a few miles from our house in Northwest Tucson. Sol Dog is expected to break ground on their new site this summer, and open in late 2019 or early 2020.
Please check out Arizona Greyhound Rescue and Sol Dog Lodge on the web. We are excited to be teaming with such a visionary organization that not only rescues greyhounds like Chevy and Napa, but does so much more for the community though Heartfelt Hounds and in the future through the facilities that Sol Dog Lodge will provide. You can expect to see more in the future as we work together over the next four months... and soon, greyhounds on the signature RAW 2019 yellow checkered race kit!
