GREYHOUND ADOPTION LEAGUE OF TEXAS INC
October 4, 2012

As a financial donor, it is important to know the Mission of an organization; to see the members of that charitable group act proactively to bring that Mission to fruition and to see the organization grow not only in members, but also in success stories. GALT (Greyhound Adoption League of TX) embodies this model. When describing "why" someone should donate their time or money to GALT; I simple explain the "Three R's: RESCUE, REHAB and REHOME". Without fail, GALT is there for ANY sighthound (retired racers, lurchers and unregistered greyhounds) in need: legally taking possession of the hound and obtaining the neccessary medical care to stabilize the dog before placing them into foster care and ultimately, a FUREVER HOME. It takes great skill to bring a group of volunteers together to achieve a common goal. GALT has not only completed this task...they have mastered it. Clearly, IT IS ALL ABOUT THE HOUNDS with GALT!

The Great!

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

reading the multiple success stories of the dogs that have come into their care as evidenced by: the surrender of the hound; addressing the medical needs/charting the recovery and wellness of the hound and ultimately, the placement of the hound.

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

GALT provides medical care to the hounds, regardless of the need or cost. Vet. care is costly...and can easily put an organization out of business. Financial assistance is always a welcome "gift".

Why did you make your donation at this time?

Someone had recently helped me when I was having a medical crisis for my personal hound. I wanted to repay their gift however; it was refused. I chose to hold a fundraiser in an effort to "PAY IT FORWARD" for the kindness and financial assistance that was shown to me.

What would you tell others about this organization?

If you need an example of what a 501c3 should be...please, follow GALT's activities/examples of caring for the hounds; creative fundraising and membership recruitment. This organization is run like a "FUN" business...and that business is taking care of the discarded hounds.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I held a fundraiser for GALT that was wholeheartedly supported by it's members.
