Working with GALT is one of the most satisfying experiences in all of my years of volunteering. GALT volunteers are simply the most dedicated, selfless people that I have ever met. The GALT board leads by example - taking on the hardest tasks year after year and never forgetting to say "thank you." It is this environment that makes it easy to step up time and again to help the GALT greyhounds.

A year has passed since my first review of GALT, and every word that I wrote in that review rings just as true today. GALT continues to live it's motto "No Grey Turned Away" each and every day. GALT volunteers give so freely of their time, their resources, their energy and creativity - even opening their homes freely to injured, neglected and abused greyhounds that it is truly inspiring. I am thrilled to be associated with GALT and look forward to 2012 as a dedicated member, volunteer and donor.

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

seeing "throw away" greyhounds happily living out their days in loving homes.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have made many wonderful friends across the globe because of my involvement with GALT.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I know that I am doing something positive for not only the greyhounds, but for the humans that come into contact with them through the program and then ultimately in their forever homes.

GREYHOUND ADOPTION LEAGUE OF TEXAS INC
November 27, 2010

Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc. (GALT) is THE premier greyhound adoption group in the nation. GALT distinguishes itself by never turning away a greyhound in need. This was evidenced in July, 2010, when GALT took in 9 greyhounds found in deplorable condition by Fort Worth Animal Control Cruelty investigators. Unfortunately, four could not be saved, but the others have been nursed back to health and are now finding their permanent homes.

Then in August, 2010, GALT received the call again from Fort Worth - even more greyhounds were in need. GALT welcomed 2 puppies and 3 more adult hounds into their program despite the fragile condition and long-term medical needs of these hounds.

And, all of this is in addition to accepting dogs with health issues that other groups turn away.

Simply put, GALT always steps up. It is an all volunteer organization that relies totally on donations to do its work. I never have any worries about where my money is going or how it will be spent when donating to GALT. It is a very wise and safe investment, and I highly recommend this charity to anyone wanting to help greyhounds and see them placed in safe, reliable homes.
