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!!!

The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT) is hands down the best greyhound rescue organization with which I have worked. I am a small animal veterinarian and have shared my home with rescued greyhounds, worked booths and special events and volunteered my time and services with a number of rescue groups over then last 16 years. I have not ever seen a group work so tirelessly to find homes for every hound. They do more rescues and adoptions and treat more broken legs and heart worm positive dogs and other medical ceases than any other group I've ever had contact with. They truly live their Otto of no grey turned away. They also do amazing fundraising and public awareness, but as you can imagine, there are always bills to pay. And hounds to save. I feel GALT should be recognized for the amazing efforts for the greyhounds.

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.

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.

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.

Each year this group amazes me with their relentless work at rescuing ANY greyhound from ANY state no matter the costs or labor involved. They lead by example; never turning their back on dogs that have been abandoned, abused, starved, old or in need of extremely expensive medical care, from a blind dog to an ailing female with her litter of sick and dying pups. They taught me to do the same(only on a smaller scale) as I was involved, just as a regular citizen, in the removal of 4 greyhounds that were being starved to death. Even though I do not live in Texas, I continue to support them financially and emotionally. They are a shining example of what a volunteer organization can do to change the world and help those who have no voice.

GALT is an amazing organization dedicated to rescuing any and all retired racers. They were the group that came forward to save all the Fort Worth greyhounds that were starved and ill this year. They did so with no consideration of the expense, time and effort it would entail. Instead of saying we cant do it, they said we will find a way and they did with much sucess. I donate money to this group knowing it will be used totally to the benefit of the retired greyhounds: be they unadoptable, sick, abused or old. They are there for these dogs no matter what and I am in awe of how they run their organization.

What is unique about this organization?

The expertise in which this group is run is amazing. Most greyhound groups are grass-root organizations that are only affective on a local level. GALT has managed to be heard nationally and their voice has made life for so many greyhounds so much better
