Our Mission... Austin Greyhound Adoption’s (AGA) primary mission is to find responsible & loving homes for purebred greyhounds after life on the racetrack and to acquaint the public with the desirability and availability of greyhounds as pets. AGA is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes as defined by section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Small dog and cat testing, as well as other behavioral assessments if needed, are done so that a better placement may be achieved. Our hounds are taken to AGA's veterinarians immediately upon arrival to be spayed/neutered, heart worm and parasite tested, teeth cleaned, vaccinations, nails trimmed & bathed. AGA is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We do not operate a commercial kennel facility and are totally dependent on foster homes, adoption fees, and generous financial contributions from the public. All funds received literally go to the dogs!
