House a Hound - Help GALT's hounds waiting for their forever homes by sponsoring their boarding at a kennel. The average stay for an adoptable hound is approx. 4 weeks which allows time to complete vetting and general health/personality assessment before placement in a foster home. http://galtx.org/help/houseahound.shtml
Angel's Strays Fund - Please help GALT save the lives of STRAY or injured greyhounds.
I live in PA but I try to help adoption groups from all around the country. This organization is wonderful-they help greyhounds that are most in need of help without a second thought. Their volunteers work very hard to help find homes for retired racing greyhounds. My family currently has 3 greyhounds and I cannot say enough about how wonderful these dogs are! I have had the privledge of adopting greyhounds since 1994 and I am super impressed with this group. Please consider their more than worthwhile cause for while people donate to other causes, few people remember this vulnerable member of society--the retired racing greyhound which cannot speak for itself. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
I do not live in Texas, but I had been told about a stray who would part greyhound and was in a shelter. This dog needed help. Contact with GALT was made and they instantly jumped and saved this part greyhound.
Many greyhound groups do not have the funds or time to help mixed greys. GALT did not stop to think, they just did what was right for the dog. GALT is a great rescue group!
I have nothing but good things to say about this organization. While I am not directly involved with the organization a close friend of mine is and I hear many stories of the things they do to better the lives of these animals. I am truly moved by the amount of love and dedication this organization has to any and all dogs. They go above and beyond!!!
The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is a fantastic organization who cares about every Greyhound who joins their family. They bring each and every dog "back to life" by providing them with a loving environment and all the medical care that they need. They enlist the most amazing volunteers who care for each dog and their outcome for a flourishing and happy life.
