GALT is the third greyhound adoption agency that my husband & I have had the pleasure of working with & adopting from. GALT is by far the most organized, caring, and active greyhound adoption organization. They come to the rescue of greyhounds in our area without hesitation! They organize many fund raisers as well as FUN RAISING activities that bond our members & benefit our hounds.
We are proud to be associated with GALT, it is a wonderful group of caring individuals who make a huge difference!!!

I do not live in Texas, but I had been told about a stray who would part greyhound and was in a shelter. This dog needed help. Contact with GALT was made and they instantly jumped and saved this part greyhound.
Many greyhound groups do not have the funds or time to help mixed greys. GALT did
not stop to think, they just did what was right for the dog. GALT is a great rescue group!

We are foster greyhound parents and a happy adopter of a GALT greyhound. I think what we most appreciate about GALT is that GALT never turns away a greyhound because it might have expensive medical needs. Hounds get treated with whatever they need for as long as they need to be treated until they are healthy. We have had some very sick fosters, picked up as strays, who required multiple trips to the vet and expensive medicines, and GALT took care of those dogs. They are now in wonderful forever homes and living contented, safe, couch potato lives.

I never thought Greyhounds would make a good pet. Until I got to know them through GALT. These folks love their dogs and run a great organization working selflessly to serve the Greys and their adoptive people.

Through GALT, my opinion of Greyhouds and my trust of people has grown.

I have adopted two greyhounds through Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. The needs of the greyhounds and their placement as pets in loving, safe homes is paramount to this organization, and the volunteers are tireless. They will not refuse any greyhound in need, even driving long distances to pick up and deliver greyhounds, and they meet all the medical needs of any sick or injured greys. This past summer was their shiningest moment when they took in many greyhounds that had been seized in an animal cruelty case in Fort Worth, Texas. These hounds had no one to speak for them but GALT, and sadly some of therm did not survive their horrid treatment despite all GALT did for them. But the ones GALT has successfully placed in forever homes and foster homes are the ultimate success stories.

My husband is I are greyhound adopters. We have adopted 10 dogs now through Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. My husband is also a Veterinarian and I am the Hospital Administrator of his clinic. We work with many adoption organizations and none are as professional and well run as GALT. They are amazing with what they do for the dogs and the success they have in finding these amazing animals such good homes. We recommend them all the time and they should be a model on how to run an adoption organization. We can't say enough good things about them.

There is something about a Greyhound that provides us all a deeper spiritual connection to love and be loved. We are the forever home to two Greyhounds now; and our home will always have a Greyhound.
Adopting a Greyhound may not change the world, but it will change the world for you and your
Greyhound.
GALT has a loving and supportive group of volunteers that want nothing but the best for every Greyhound brought into their care.
We fully suppor them with our time, talents, and resources.

I wish that GALT had all of the resources needed; and all of the adoptive families needed for all Greyhounds.

My husband and I have been a foster home for GALTx almost since its inception. We have also volunteered in other capacties for them, such as transporting dogs to the vet, giving the incoming greys tlc, etc. The biggest thing I can say about this organization is that they will not turn an animal away, no matter if they have funds or the animal will require expensive medical care. It is all about the greyhounds, and they are each and every one given the care and love they need. This is an all volunteer group, and each person who volunteers with them, as well as potential adopters must fill out a form with background information. I can't say enough about the dedication of the leadership of this group. They are AAA rated.

I have witnessed first hand the care these animals receive with no thought to cost or any other consideration. It is greyhounds first, last, always.

I think they run a pretty tight ship, and expect a lot from their folks in leadership. If I knew more about the inner workings of this group I might be able to offer a suggestion or two, but from where I sit, they do a very good job.

In 2005 we adopted our first greyhound from the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT) and over the years adopted four more. We have fostered several greyhounds and I have been GALT's greyhound photographer since 2006. I have taken photographs of hundreds of the greyhounds which GALT has taken into its family and adopted to their forever homes. GALT never turns away a greyhound in need. This was evidenced in July, 2010, when GALT took in 9 greyhounds found in deplorable condition by Fort Worth Animal Control Cruelty investigators. GALT has adopted over 1,600 greyhounds to their forever homes since its inception. The volunteers are very dedicated to do whatever is necessary to help the greyhound. GALT is an outstanding organization and I am proud to be a part of it.

My late husband and I were greyhound breeders. The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is the only adoption agency that we trusted to find great homes for our retired racers. We have sent them many dogs, and everyone is in a super home. I have been able to stay in contact with many of the current owners of our dogs. GALT greyhounds receive the absolute best medical care available. They are treated by the best specialists in the Dallas area. I used to work for a vet in the Waco area. She referred difficult cases to the same specialists that GALT uses. When my husband passed away, GALT sent their wonderful volunteers to pick up five of my greyhounds that I could not keep. I still have eight retired racers. I know without a doubt that if anythings happens to me, GALT volunteers would be here in a matter of hours to pick up my dogs. I simply cannot say enough good things about the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas.
