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.

GALT is simply the best! I have been associated with this group for years and just keep coming back for more. Their care and concern for the hounds and the creation of happy families is just unmatched. I am a GALT supporter for life. Come join the fun and gain a family!

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.

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

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.

There is a special place in Heaven for the people in this organization. We have adopted three beautiful houndies from GALT. Their volunteers are exceptional. The love they show to each and everyone of their rescues is extremely beautiful. I have the most respect for all that are involved with this organization. They are true friends of the adoption process to the people adopting and most of all to the hounds!

We adopted our Sweetie 4 yrs ago, from GALT. Since then we have adopted Johnny B and Barnaby. GALT is the most wonderful group of people in the Greyhound rescue organizations! They are always there for you, if you need assistance, they also are always finding ways to get everyone together for the hounds! I am a better person for being allowed to know these wonderful giving angels!

We have adopted 2 Greyhounds from GALT. Their devoted service to the Greyhounds is more than anyone would ever imagine. Their Foster program exceeds all others. I have never seen or been around such wonderful, caring thoughtful people. Everytime they have an event, such as a meet and greet or fund raiser it is a total experience of fun and devotion to the animals. They are relentless in the care and finding good decent forever homes for each and every Grey they can.

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 the great honor and pleasure to work with this group and they are top notch! Everything they do is in the best interest of the greyhounds and NO GREYHOUND IS LEFT BEHIND, whether it's shows up in a shelter, stray, an abusive situation or just retiring from their racing career. This group is all about the GREYHOUNDS!!!

My husband is a veterinarian and he has done some of the vet work for GALT since they started in 2001. We have both worked with many animal rescue organizations but Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is by far the best. They should write a book on how to run a rescue organization. To date they have found forever homes for over 2100 greyhounds. They work strictly on donations with an operating budget of over $250,000 per year. Their fundraising abilities are just phenomenal and this group works tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt greyhounds, all the while, educating the general public about the joys of owning a greyhound. We have never worked with a better group of volunteers and what they do for greyhounds should not go unnoticed.

I initially adopted from GALT. It was the spirit and the professionalism of the volunteers that inspired me to be a part of this organization. I have now been a volunteer for about 2 years. This organization and it's all volunteer 'staff' are superior to any other organization that I have been involved in. The work that is done by this team to support the cause, 'NO GREY TURNED AWAY', is amazing. The dogs benefit, the adopters are supported even AFTER they adopt, there is a sense of community within the organization and the overall goal, to provide outstanding care to sight hounds is accomplished through the tireless efforts of the volunteers.

As a GALT volunteer and donor, I can definitely attest to this important organization. My greyhound broke his leg during his last race back in 2010. GALT is the only greyhound adoption group in Texas that will accept greyhounds with broken leg injuries from the racetrack. Without GALT, I shudder to think of what would have happened to him. GALT paid for his broken leg surgery and his loving foster mom opened up her home to him during his recuperation. With GALT, you can rest assured your donation will go towards helping the greyhounds.

GALT is a remarkable greyhound rescue organization run 100% by volunteers and funded 100% by donations and fundraisers. My involvement with GALT started when my husband and I began our search for a new family member. During our adoption process we discovered GALT to be extremely organized, efficient, and dedicated. Due to the the generous donations and hard work of GALT's volunteers, thousands of greyhounds have been placed into forever homes.

The Great!

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

my adoption of Dolce. Dolce was taken in by GALT after his racing injury. GALT paid for his surgery and rehabilitation. His loving and generous foster family introduced him to home life, which made his transition into our house seamless. Dolce joined our family happy, healthy and well-adjusted. This is a testament to GALT's successful work with rescuing and rehabilitating greyhounds and placing them into forever homes.

I've been a volunteer with the Greyhound Adoption League of TX for 3 years. Since joining this wonderful organization, I've looked forward to the day when I was able to foster or adopt my own grey. At the end of 2012, I took in a dog as a foster to see if adoption was for me, and was very satisfied with how much support I received from GALT coordinators. They were always happy to answer questions as this was the first dog I'd ever been responsible for. I quickly realized that my life wouldn't be the same without my special foster, and decided that I had to make it official. I adopted him about 3 weeks after picking him up from the kennel, and I can't imagine life without my boy. GALT is such a great group of people, and they care so much for each grey that comes into their care. The kennel volunteers that cared for my dog prior have all checked in and asked how he's doing. This organization doesn't forget about dogs after they've been placed in homes, and I think that quality makes GALT truly special.
