When we decided to adopt a greyhound, little did we know we were truly blessed when we met GALT. They're the premier greyhound adoption group in the country and have the most committed and loving volunteers. I have witnessed first-hand that they do whatever it takes (however much it costs) to improve each greyhound's health to 100% normal before they're available for adoption. And they do all this while keeping costs as low as possible. We can't imagine life without our sweet Diva (former racing name, Killer Diva). She is the light of our lives.

GALT is a collection of volunteers who work tirelessly to educate the public about greyhounds and offer fostering and adoption services for these wonderful pets. They have been very helpful in answering questions and providing advice about caring for my dog. Highly recommended!

give them even more visibility. Possibly consider merging with other greyhound orgs to increase size & reduce duplication of effort

In 2001, my husband & I adopted our first retired racing Greyhound. At that time, we entered a world of new friends who promoted these dogs with unparalleled enthusiasm. Looking back, I can't imagine what life was like before our involvement in the Greyhound community. Most Greyhound adoption groups are involved in the placement of retired racers, however, in addition to retired racers, GALT also takes in strays, abused and neglected Greyhounds from cruelty seizures. Regardless of condition or age, GALT makes every attempt to evaluate, rehabilitate and find each one a safe, loving home. While we have never adopted a dog through GALT (we live in Florida), we donate to groups across the country who we feel reflect the attitude, professionalism, and efficiency that continue to make a real difference in the lives of not only the dogs, rather, in peoples' lives, as well through public education and outreach. GALT is one such group.

The Great!

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

Over the last few years, watching dogs in the most dire condition be brought back to health via GALT's vigilant attention to medical care and socialization programs utilizing a network of experienced veternarians and caring, loving foster homes is nothing short of astounding. Later, follow up photos posted by GALT or the new, adoptive families on social networks, and/or GALT's own website, are proof that what they do works very well!

The only change I would make, if I could, would be to move to TEXAS and be a more "hands on" volunteer!

More feedback...

Was your donation impactful?

Definitely

How likely is it that you would recommend that a friend donate to this group?

Definitely

How likely are you to donate to this group again?

Definitely

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I don't remember the first time I donated (a couple years ago) but it was to help with the cost of vetting/rehabilitating a Greyhound that was in dire straits.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

To help GALT in their ongoing efforts to improve the health & lives of Greyhounds in their care.

What would you tell others about this organization?

This group helps and promotes actual Greyhound dogs and does not just behave as an activist group! If you are interested in helping a "hands on" group, you couldn't find a more worthy Greyhound placement group. Please consider helping GALT when you can, with whatever amount is feasible. GALT has always been very appreciative to us, regardless of the amount!

I began looking to adopt and decided on a greyhound. The volunteers at GALT were helpful and I could tell they were truly interested in the ongoing welfare of the dogs they adopt out. This organization is interested in promoting the breed and making sure that the dogs in their care receive the best medical AND TLC. I began to volunteer because the group demonstrates a professionalism and level of care that I have not seen at other organizations.

GALT's members are tireless. They are out in force every weekend trying to educate the public on what greyt dogs they have in need of homes. They put on fabulous, creative fundraisers that really appeal to all dog lovers. They continue to educate their adoptive families afterwards with classes like Greyhound only obedience classes. I look forward to being part of their community at some point in the future!

GALT is a greyt organization that will always help a greyhound in need. They make sure the new greyhound owners are educated on the breed and that the dog makes a smooth transition into the new family. They truly care about the greyhounds.

GALT never turns a greyhound in need away! I've fostered healthy dogs, sick dogs, dogs mending from broken legs, and GALT has been a wonderful organization to work with for all of them. Very supportive of volunteers, and they'll go to great lengths to help the hounds.

Adopting a greyhound from GALT, can not only get you a wonderful companion but also a whole new purpose. These dogs have a chance because of the love, passion and energy that the folks at GALT put into every dog. Through their excellent network of medical care, grooming, fostering, training, rescue and TLC, each dog is personally attended to. When you adopt a grey, there is help, advice and support. Before you know it, your fostering and adopting more! So far we have adopted 3 our of the six we fostered:) When you see the amount of heart these folks have you just want to jump in and help too. We work with many charities and GALT is the most well run, effective and genuine that we have had the pleasure of serving.

I adopted a greyhound from GALT in July 2010. Since that time I have been amazed at what a well-run dedicated organization that GALT is. I have become more involved with GALT over the last year and am about to start volunteering as foster home for GALT. GALT appears to be extremely dedicated, organized, and great about putting the greyhounds in the public eye with frequent Meet and Greet events where people can interact with the dogs. GALT also takes all steps possible to make sure that the dogs available for adoption are healthy and can stay in thier adoptive homes forever.

We have 3 fabulous greyhounds that we adopted from GALT. Granted, you can't really go wrong adopting greyhounds, but what I didn't expect was the support & community that came with our dogs. We were accepted in to the GALT community & made to feel quite welcome. We've fostered a few times for GALT as well. Having the support of GALT's foster families online & available by phone really made me feel like I had plenty of resources. Fostering with GALT means never going it alone. GALT is made up of caring volunteers with giant hearts & that really shows.
