I've been involved with (and adopted from) Greyhound adoption groups up and down the East Coast, and I follow a number of them through private chat groups , Facebook and community boards, all over the world. GALT is the cream of the crop of adoption groups - they are very active, organized and completely devoted to the dogs that they bring into their group. They are racing-neutral and are devoted to adoptions, rehoming, and always there to give a caring loving hand to the dogs that have been found and did not have the right owners and had medical issues and needed much care, Galt was there with a caring hand till all was OK and placing these dogs in loving forever homes as well as supporting and educating the families that adopt them from GALT. Their members are very devoted, giving time, dollars and caring advice. If I lived closer to GALT I would adopt my next greyhound from this very caring group. I have only been able to help GALT in Auctions but if I lived closer it would be a honor to be able to be a volunteer for GALT.

I've been involved with (and adopted from) Greyhound rescues in Florida and Canada, and I follow a number of them through blogs, Facebook and Websites, all over the world. GALT is the cream of the crop of rescue groups - so active, organized and completely devoted to the dogs they serve. They are racing-neutral (meaning they leave personal opinions for or against greyhound racing out of their messages) and solely devoted to rescuing, healing and placing these dogs in loving forever homes as well as supporting and educating the families that adopt them. Their members seem so devoted, always contributing their ideas, time, dollars and caring advice. GALT seems to garner attention worldwide for their efforts, which helps spread important messages such as spay and neuter, and rescue not purchase. Wish I lived closer as I would surely adopt my next hound through GALT.

I have watched and learned so much from being "friends" and "following" this group on Facebook for the last few years. Not only do they do everything they can to place the greyhound in fantastic, loving homes, but the fundraisers are often and very beneficial. They obviously love the breed and want only what's best for our four-legged friends. Even though I live far away from GALT, I know that I will consult with them first when I decide that it's time to adopt a greyhound.

I love GALT... I may be all the way up in Alberta, Canada but I love the way they will take in any dog regardless of it's lineage, background, medical status or history. The work they've done for Lurchers and Coyote dogs makes me smile everyday - we have a lot of the same problems up here with farm greyhounds and the care and love they give these dogs is boundless!

I've volunteered with GALT to help arrange and transport injured greyhounds from the track which is south of Houston to their location in Dallas. They truly care about all of the hounds that pass through their doors. WIth very few - if any- exceptions - GALT will not turn away a hound from their program. If they can't for any reason accept the hound - they will help find another program that will. GPA-Houston is proud to work in conjunction with the very professional and caring folks at GALT. They have an exception and well earned reputation in the greyhound community.

I became involved with GALT apron 2 years ago. I have volunteered with them , along with another group - to help transport several greyhounds with broken legs from the Gulf Greyhound race track - which is south of Houston - to their location which is up near Dallas. This takes coordination of SEVERAL parties. GALT is well know for it's ability to work with all aspects of the effort to help get retired racers into loving and responsible homes. From the volunteers - to the breeders to the folks at the track - you say the name GALT and a sigh of relief and thanks is audibly heard. We know that the dogs are in good hands. We know that what ever it takes to make that happen - will be done. It will be taken care of, arranged and organized and accomplished in a timely fashion. As a volunteer - being a part of a group that is this committed makes every effort, every rescue, every transportation pick up and drop off - run as smoothly as possible. I LOVED being able to work with by my home/local GPAH group and RIGHT along side with GALT. It's an honor to be part of their team.

THE GALT is a wonderful organization striving to make a better life for these incredibly noble and soulful dogs who are basically used up and thrown away once their racing days are over. As one privy to the joys of Greyhound rescue ownership, it is just great that an organization such as GALT with all the dedicated members truly care for the hounds and find them forever homes

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.

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!

As a lover and appreciator of greyhounds, it is my opinion that this organization is the best. True advocates for greyhounds, they are active in social media, constantly fundraising and raising awareness of these wonderful animals. I have never heard a negative thing said about them or their volunteers. Thank you, GALT, for all that you do!
