I don't know what I would do without GALT! The amount of knowledge and willingness of members and volunteers to step up and help out is amazing. I love the unending support I receive when I needed and enjoy every volunteer opportunity because of the amazing people that make up the group.

After deciding to adopt a greyhound I found GALT and couldn't be happier! Even prior to adopting Lexi I knew I had found a wonderful group of dedicated people! I have an endless supply of answers to any questions and general support. I'm happy to say that I truly enjoy volunteering with them and considering everyone a wonderful new friend!

I am so proud to be part of such a wonderful organization. I have fostered puppies (and other dogs) for GALT. First of all, taking in litters of puppies is an effort in itself, but moreover, these poor darlings would be dead or homeless if GALT didn't step in. Below is a photo of a puppy that GALT saved from terrible conditions. Thank you GALT for all you do!

I encountered GALT from a friend's referral when we moved to the DFW area. I didn't look them up at first, but my friend kept nagging me and saying...this is the best greyhound rescue in the country. After awhile, I connected with GALT, and began fostering and volunteering occasionally, but the entire organization is so friendly and well-run that I'm now fundraising for them too. The best part about GALT is that they are an all-volunteer organization, so every single dime goes to the care and placement of the rescued dogs.

I became involved with the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas in 2005. This dedicated group of volunteers work together for the good of the greyhounds that come into their program. The extensive work they do on the incoming greyhounds to get them ready for a home, the adoption process that does the best possible job matching the right family to the right greyhound and the continuing support given to the adopters and their hound is truly outstanding. GALT gives their all every time, every greyhound.

In 2005 our son rescued a greyhound from a local kill shelter and we fell in love with the breed. Soon after we adopted our first greyhound from the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. We discovered that in our area there are many greyhounds that end up in the local shelter found as strays, injured or sick. GALT has always, without fail, taken in any greyhound we have found, in any condition and given that greyhound the medical attention it needed, no matter what the cost. Then worked tirelessly to find the perfect home for that greyhound. The entire group of Greyhound Adoption League of Texas volunteers is to me like a family united in the cause of helping all greyhounds all the time. We are proud to be a part of GALT.

GALT takes care of the dogs in exemplary fashion, and all the volunteers work hard to ensure happy adopted outcomes. I'm proud to foster for them, helping as many greyhounds as I can. I know my fosters always get the best medical care possible. The adoption coordinators vet applicants and make sure that the right dog is matched up to the adopter.

Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT), is a wonderful organization to work with and to donate to. It is run solely by volunteers, and depends on donations to continue it's good work. GALT has placed over 1500 greyhounds in homes in the past ten years. They never turn away a greyhound and often take in the ones that need considerable medical attention.

Although volunteer driven, they strive for professional results. GALT is welcoming to new volunteers, and has had a big impact in raising awareness about the plight of retired racing greyhounds in the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been directly involved in the wonderful medical and foster care given to every greyhound in the system. I've seen my donations put to very good and accountable use.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get them more donations!

Yes, run by volunteers, but so professionally—a grade A operation, both efficient and compassionate from start to finish.

What a professional operation! I chose GALT hoping that my greyhound adoption would be completed with every attention to detail, and it was. Both our family and our hound received personal attention that ensured a perfect match. We have looked at similar organizations but are simply wowed by GALT's organizational and personal zeal and competence. Our first experience with GALT won us back not only for a second adoption but as volunteers. A class act.

I have been a volunteer with GALT for about 6 months now. I love that a dog is not available until they are completely healthy and ready for their forever home! What an amazing group that always has the best interest of the hounds as top priority.

How I adore an organization where every bit of the funds goes to the purpose for which it is intended, to help dogs and not to some highly paid executive. we have volunteered with GALT for years and years now. It is a rewarding venture made all the more so as we share our experience with so many other caring volunteers. This is the most worthy of support animal adoption group. There are not enough superlatives.

Been a volunteer for years now. Here's a reason why. We have a foster on injured reserve. No vet has yet figured out what exactly is wrong with her, but GALT will not give up. She continues to be treated, tested, fed a special diet. If necessary, GALT will care for her for her entire life. GALT never ever gives up on a dog. People should treat each other with as much respect. Thank you GALT

We volunteer and adopt from Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. It is truly amazing for an all volunteer group to be run so efficiently. If we, as foster volunteers, need something for our dog, if we are concerned about our foster, it gets addressed immediately. The dogs are so well cared for and so loved by every person in the group. Perhaps one of the best things about the group is how volunteers work so well together to insure that each dog receives the best care. Or, perhaps the best thing about the group is that no greyhound is turned away, no matter what the medical costs. We're proud to volunteer for such a fine organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes, just wishes that it were easier to find money to support the dogs' medical needs. then some of the volunteers wouldn't have to spend so much time fund raising

We began fostering for GALT many years ago. Quickly we discovered that this organization was run by the most dedicated and selfless people we had met. There is not a single paid employee on the GALT team. Everyone volunteers time, becomes a member, devotes energy and money and love all in an effort to bring greyhounds to their forever homes. We now are proudly owned by a GALT dog who is trained as a therapy dog. He is the perfect example of a terrible track racer who was taken in by an adoption group so that he could race into people's hearts. Thank you GALT for being there for every greyhound who needs you.

I have been a GALT volunteer for over 6 years - as a foster family helping greyhounds prepare for their forever homes and as part of a fabulous team that cares lovingly for the greys in boarding. Over the year we have also become the proud parents of 3 amazing GALT greyhounds. It is wonderful to watch these sweet creatures blossom and see the wonder in their eyes as they experience home life for the first time. To see them gain confidence and in some cases, help them to learn to trust us 2-leggers. We have nurtured fosters that were extremely shy and fearful of people; cared for fosters with broken legs; kept some calm and quiet while going through heartworm treatments; and above all, treated them as part of the pack. GALT is an amazing organization and makes sure every single greyhound is placed in the right home.

GALT is the first and only group we've worked with, and we know we started with the BEST! We adopted first, donated and then started to foster greyhounds waiting for their forever homes. It is such a rewarding experience to know that no grey is turned away and that every greyhound adopted through GALT is lovingly considered part of the family pack while in foster care. To watch a shy, insecure dog blossom before our eyes has be the most rewarding experience imaginable. GALT ensures every dog is healthy and well matched to their new family.

The GALT leadership is totally committed and works tirelessly to raise the funds necessary to provide medical care. It's a wonderful, tight-knit community that really is an extension of family. I am proud to be part of this amazing organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure the next generation of leadership is groomed and ready to take the reigns if people choose to leave their position.

I am proud to be a GALT member for many years now. GALT volunteers are the very best and always rise to the occasion to help hounds in need. I like knowing that my donations are used to help the dogs exactly as expected. Thanks, GALT, for 15 years of dedication to "no grey turned away!"

Being a GALT supporter is one of the best things that I have ever done - a real first class organization that is truly all about the hounds. I like that I know how the money is being used and that none of it goes to salaries or perks. GALT is just stellar!

It's hard to put my feelings into words about GALT - always there every single time for greyhounds and other sighthounds too. GALT takes the tough cases that other groups won't touch - broken legs, questionable heritage, stray puppies, old and unwanted - you name it.

I feel very proud of this group and am so happy to be a member. I really recommend spending time with this group. It will be a real life-changing experience. (And you just might gain a new 4 legger for your family!)

I truly believe that GALT is THE best greyhound adoption group anywhere. The dogs are always, always put first - whether it is a greyhound fresh off the track with a broken leg or a poor pup who has been returned due to family changes. GALT finds the right solution for each and every one and even provides training if that is what is needed to get the dog its perfect home. It has been on year since I wrote my first review for GALT and I am even happier to be a GALT supporter today than I was then. I support GALT's "no grey turned away" motto.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing many greyhounds find the love and families that they deserve.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing comes to mind.

I have made so many new friends as a result.

I support several greyhound adoption & rescue groups, but GALT is special to me. They go above and beyond and do not hesitate to take the real hardship cases as they arise - no matter what the situation is. That is why they have my support and always will. If someone is looking for a greyhound charity to support, GALT is the one.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my donations put to good use and seeing all of the happy families enjoying their new additions.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them find more money to help more greyhounds.
