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.

I adopted a greyhound from GALT in July 2010. As a first time greyhound owner, I felt very prepared due to GALT's guidance and information about what to expect, as well as knowing that GALT takes all steps possible to ensure that all adopted dogs are healthy.

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.

I will always have a greyhound in my family. Thanks to G.A.L.T. I am blessed with a sweet four legged member of my family. This organization not only rescues retired racers, but as in the case of my adopted greyhound, they are available to rescue any greyhound. My dog's parents were found running loose and the mother dog was pregnant. They not only rescued her but were able to find homes for all her puppies. Most people are not aware of what happens to the retired racers and through G.A.L.T.'s education programs that is being corrected. Thank you G.A.L.T. for all you do for these beautiful sight hounds.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

When I first adopted this greyhound, there were unknown medical/mental issues. They were quick to help me find an answer to the issue and offered contact with another person with a similar problem.

We have adopted two beautiful hounds from GALT. Their volunteers, Foster homes and veteranarians far exceed any organization I have ever been associated with. I don't know how to thank all of the people involved with this organization, if it were not for those Angels for Greyhounds my house would not be as filled with love, Thank you all, Ann Sparks

The GALT organization is truly amazing! The love and compassion shown toward any and all greythounds that are rescued by GALT is endless. The dogs are given the best possible care and everything possible is done to insure that they find the "just right" forever home. There is something about a greyhound that just touches your heart....perhaps because they have already given so much of themselves and their hearts are truly made of gold. I now am the proud owner of 3 greyhounds....2 of these were my fosters...so I recognize I perhaps failed at fostering...but I will never fail to love these wonderful dogs and the people who give of themselves everyday to make the lives of these doggies a true "life of a dog"...sleep...eat...sleep..run a little...sleep...sleep...sleep...roach...sleep...change roach posiion...sleep...smile!

GALT has the biggest heart. They never turn away a greyhound (or part greyhound) in need. GALT volunteers take the best care of the dogs. I am so impressed with the good work they do, I donate to them (and I live in Maryland).

GALT is an extraordinary group of volunteers that is willing to take in and care for any greyhound. They are constantly raising funds and promoting greyhound welfare, but they are never pushy or preachy. GALT is very active in both community events and social media to reach a wide audience. My experience with the volunteers has always been very positive. The people are very nice and knowledgeable about greyhounds and the organization.

I adopted a greyhound from this organization. The greyhound broke his leg while racing and was subsequently turned over to GALT who paid for his surgery and rehabilitated him back to full health before he was able to be adopted into our family.
