GREYHOUND ADOPTION LEAGUE OF TEXAS INC
February 18, 2011
I first learned of GALT immediately following the news of the FWACC-28 case last July. I became more familiar with the organization through their website, enews, and Facebook posts. I cannot believe the wonderful work they do. Most greyhound rescues limit the hounds they take in to track racers, and most want only healthy dogs that can be turned over quickly. GALT takes in the most needy without bias - those whose lives are in danger from abuse or neglect, and those whose pedigree may be in question because they are either untattooed or not readable. The transformation of these animals once they come into GALT's hands and the way they thrive in their new environment is amazing. This group is certainly worthy of any non-profit award.

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would not change a thing. The volunteers are dedicated to their volunteer work and to the hounds.
General Member of the Public & I work with a greyhound rescue in another state, and GALT's work has inspired me to strive to achieve more placements with permanent families.
