House a Hound - Help GALT's hounds waiting for their forever homes by sponsoring their boarding at a kennel. The average stay for an adoptable hound is approx. 4 weeks which allows time to complete vetting and general health/personality assessment before placement in a foster home. http://galtx.org/help/houseahound.shtml
