I adopted my first greyhound, Cabby, from GALT in early 2008. Cabby and GALT changed my life forever. After seeing what wonderful creatures greyhounds were I jumped in with both feet, started fostering and now I have 6 GALT greys of my very own. I can honestly say my life revolves around greyhounds!

GALT never turns away a greyhound in need, no matter how bad off they are. I have fostered a few that came to GALT very Ill, GALT always goes the extra mile to make sure that each grey in its possession is given the best care for its individual needs. Not only does GALT take in retired racing greys, they also open their doors to greyhound mixes, owner releases, ex-coyote hunting greys and strays. I am very proud to be a member of GALT and am sure to tell everyone I can about the fantastic work they do and how wonderful greyhounds are as pets!

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Volunteering for GALT spurred the creation of my own business making products that are specifically for greyhounds including martingale collars, leashes and greyhound christmas stockings. I vend at some of GALTs events. I also voulnteer my time to make GALT's bellybands that they sell in the online store and include in all male greyhound adoption packets. I have met many many wonderful friends though GALT and so often they feel more like family to me.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Wonderful, I love greyhounds more than I can ever convey in writing

GALT is one of the most amazing rescue groups I have ever come in contact with. They NEVER say no to any hound, be it abused, broken limbs, or lost and found. They have an outstanding bunch of volunteers as well as vets who take the best care of everything that comes their way. Superior care and concern in what they do so well.

GALT has shown it commitment to retired racing greyhounds through its actions. Its mandates to aid all greyhounds is admirable. GALT has shown over the years, that money is secondary to the well-being and health of a retired racing greyhound. Each and every greyhound receives the highest level of care regardless of its situation. For this GALT should be proud and duly recognized for its efforts.

GALT made our family complete with the addition of a hound. They all work so hard to keep the pups in good shape and going to good homes. If our house ever starts to feel a little too roomy we will add another GALT hound in a minute. Thanks to them for all their hard work!

I have such admiration and respect for GALT. This organization takes in greyhounds who need extensive medical care and they do it again and again, no matter the circumstances. Everything from one stray at a time, to whole groups of dogs taken from a hoarding situation. The fact is that volunteers, space, time and money are all stretched extremely thin when a group goes above and beyond this way. GALT deserve to be recognized as the amazing greyhound rescue group they are. They have saved so many greyhound lives and they adamately refuse to give up on even one of them. They are like angels to greyhounds in need.

By seeing the dogs who are saved, by GALT and seeing the dogs after they have been rehabilitated by GALT. Amazing.

There aren't enough words to express my deep appreciation and admiration for the amazing people at G.A.L.T. and the cause they work so hard to support. There is a dire need for Greyhound rescue, rehabilitation and education, and Greyhound Adoption League of Texas provides this service as a genuine labor of LOVE.

My family was recently introduced to GALT when we adopted a beautiful greyhound from them - a retired racer and recently retired brood momma. Words cannot express how amazing the experience has been from the beginning - and we have no intention of seeing an "end" to the relationship. We've had the pleasure of meeting countless GALT volunteers who work so diligently and selflessly to ensure that each and every greyhound is placed into the RIGHT forever home - not just ANY home - a "furever" home which will benefit ALL parties for the "greyter" good. To witness the lengths to which GALT goes to ensure each animal is made healthy, happy and SAFE is astounding. The fact that every foster parent gives SO MUCH of themselves - their time, their energy, their home and their heart is truly awe-inspiring. Such loving care is put into finding the right "match" for each hound by the foster parents and the administrative volunteers - it's an inspiring and heart warming process to go through and one that I will never forget.

Immediately following the adoption of our new and already beloved four-legged family member, we felt so compelled and moved by the efforts and cause supported by GALT, we immediately became donating members so that we could continue to support their amazing rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and educational efforts. We are SO PROUD to call ourselves "members" of this outstanding organization and even PROUDER to feel as though our time, monetary donations and love will help GALT to continue providing these amazing animals with medical care, foster care and ultimately the forever homes they so desperately need and deserve. The fact that they achieve all that they do SOLELY from the efforts of loving volunteers and from the support of charitable donations is difficult to wrap my head around - I pray that they continue to find the support they so desperately need which enables them to continue this greyt and desperately-needed work.

Without GALT, it's unfathomable what would become of these animals. It's even more unimaginable what our family would be like, had we not found Greyhound Adoption League of Texas - their selfless and unyielding efforts brought us together with our beautiful new family member, Simone, and for this we will be forever supportive and eternally greytful.

If I were able to, the only changes I would make to GALT would be to provide them with more funds, more volunteers and more supplies! They so desperately need all of these things to continue their work.

Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is one of the very best humane, adoption agencies in the US. Greyhounds deserve the best homes and treatments and are the least likely to receive them. Too many are bred for racing and discarded. In GALT's ten years of operation they have provided medical care and homes for hundreds and hundreds of greys. Their fund raising for the greys is unceasing and their officers are untiring in their efforts.
I have a beautiful grey, Roxie, adopted from GALT. She is the light of my life and if I weren't 80 years old, I would adopt more. I love them. They are the most beautiful, sweet dogs and I am grateful to GALT.

GALT is such an incredible organization. My greyhound Olivia is such a joy, and GALT did an amazing job of making sure that I got to meet a ton of dogs and choose the perfect one. They also have a ton of activities for humans and dogs so we can all stay in touch. They are extremely well organized that make sure greyhounds are safe and well cared for, and they do their best to find foster homes for the dogs that are waiting for adoption. GALT is the best pet adoption organization I have seen or dealt with, and when I get a brother or sister for Olivia, they will come from GALT as well. Please check them out! They have a very good website as well!

GALT will quickly activate a search party upon getting news that someone's greyhound has gotten lost - they put the word out on Facebook and through e-mail to get the dog back home ASAP.

I live in PA but I try to help adoption groups from all around the country. This organization is wonderful-they help greyhounds that are most in need of help without a second thought. Their volunteers work very hard to help find homes for retired racing greyhounds. My family currently has 3 greyhounds and I cannot say enough about how wonderful these dogs are! I have had the privledge of adopting greyhounds since 1994 and I am super impressed with this group. Please consider their more than worthwhile cause for while people donate to other causes, few people remember this vulnerable member of society--the retired racing greyhound which cannot speak for itself. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
