I've been following GALT for 6 years on FB and what a great rescue they are ! 5 years ago I took the next step and went to visit them, all the way from Belgium and met them in person. I was taken in, into their family and met even more of the volunteers. They all became my extended family and I love them dearly! I run a small rescue in Belgium and would like to be as good as them when we grow up ! GALT will move heaven and earth to help greyhounds in need, No Grey Turned Away are not just words to them it is their goal to help them all.
I have the deepest respect for all the volunteers and the work they do, day in and day out!
I have been following GALT for a couple of years on FB and thought they did a fabulous job ! I got to know a few of their volunteers pretty well and saw them as my dear friends even though I had never met them in person as I live in Belgium. Last februari I set off to meet these wonderful people in real life and made the trip to Dallas. I had so much fun meeting them and talking with them, they made me feel right at home. GALT does so much for the dogs and for the people who are supporting them. GALT is my favourite rescue in the States! Keep up the good work and maybe till next year? :)
Although GALT's focus is assisting greyhounds, particularly those with a racing background; this organization embodies "leave no SIGHTHOUND behind." I stand in awe of the dedication and teamwork exhibited by the GALT volunteers. Whether the task is picking up a lurcher in the local animal shelter; attending a Meet & Greet; maintaining the website or planning a mega fundraising gala; the members of GALT rise to the challenge with aplomb.
GALT is what every rescue should aspire to be.
These are the finest, most dedicated people you will ever meet. I had the honor of adopting my beautiful Rebekah from GALT and then fostering 2 sweet boys. GALT is one of the things I miss the most since I moved to Florida.
I have been involved in the pet industry and have partnered with rescue organizations for over 16 years. The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is professionally operated with a fantastic network of dedicated volunteers that have been an ongoing pleasure to partner with. They have an impressive schedule of events and meet and greets to successfully place the many hounds they have taken in on their journey to their waiting families. I have had the good fortune to have had 4 GALT hounds placed with me. The support received from the group is exemplary from fostering to adopting to becoming part of the GALT family through a robust social media network. Great organization!
GALT is wonderful! We have adopted 5 greys in 10 years. They truly stand by their motto, no greys turned away. This is such a loving and passionate group of people who share their love of greyhounds ! I am proud to be apart of GALT!
I started volunteering for GALT in 2016. This well-organized adoption group provides excellent medical care for the hounds. They work hard to make sure that the dog will fit in well at its forever adopted home; dogs that will live with cats go to kitty boot camp to live with cats before adoption and dogs that will be only dogs try living alone before they are adopted.
As a volunteer, who didn't have greyhound experience prior to volunteering, the GALT community was incredibly helpful when I had questions.
great they take in retired racers. They show pictures of dogs off leash. Stole their "no grey turned away' from another group & they don't always take dogs. Instead of helping dogs in the US, they are now importing greyhounds. Currently the tracks in Florida repair fractured legs, GALT takes them prior to repair to beg for more money. Check the Group before you donate time & money. Know of friends who have attempted to adopt, but are turned away. Watch the Vet clinic they support, care its substandard.
we have been volunteers and GALT adopters for year, well over a decade. We are continuously grateful for GALT's dedication to caring for all the greyhounds in its custody. No expense is spared in medical care. At one point two different fosters were on two different special foods. Now one if taking extra meds. A relatively recent addition is Foster checkpoints where all fosters are bathed, have nail trims, teeth and ears and weight checked. All dogs are closely monitored and cared for and volunteers are appreciated.
How I adore an organization where every bit of the funds goes to the purpose for which it is intended, to help dogs and not to some highly paid executive. we have volunteered with GALT for years and years now. It is a rewarding venture made all the more so as we share our experience with so many other caring volunteers. This is the most worthy of support animal adoption group. There are not enough superlatives.
GALT is the best greyhound adoption group anywhere. Their dedication to the hounds and their adopters & volunteers is just astounding! They are very helpful to their adopters and have built a wonderful network of supporting medical facilities that help us all to keep the hounds happy & healthy. And the events are just a blast! If you are looking for a wonderful 4-legged companion, check out GALT!
It is my honor and privilege to continue my support of GALT. I have been a proud member and supporter for many years. GALT lives it's "no grey turned away" vision every single day. They don't turn away from a greyhound/sighthound in need. GALT's volunteers are the lifeblood of this organization. I am so very happy to be a part of this amazing organization .
