I’m an adopter and now volunteer with the Greyhound Adoption League of Tx, for the newly formed New Mexico Chapter. We adopted 3 hounds from them last year and we had a really great experience with them. When they decided to expand into NM, I really wanted to see them succeed. The volunteers are extremely committed and the all resources GALT gets goes into helping the hounds who need medical care. They take in stray sighthounds, as well as retired racers, really living up to the phrase “No Grey turned away.”
The pics I posted are two hounds we just got from another rescue who was having a hard time placing them and didn’t have foster homes for them. GALT now has them and they are well on their way to finding forever homes.
GALT is one of the most amazing rescue groups I have had the pleasure to work with. Their love and devotion to saving the greyhounds is so wonderful. I have been fostering and volunteering as an adoption coordinator for several years now, and have adopted several hounds from GALT. I can not say enough good things about this organization and the love and passion that goes into caring for the hounds.
I have the privilege of having two GALT Greyhounds and they are the my loves. I am also an adoption coordinator and foster for GALT. Such a wonderful organization that does such great things for the greyhounds, from strays, to hounds off the track, to puppies that have been dumped, to taking greyhounds (and greyhound mixes) from hoarding situations. All the volunteers work together to get the hounds ready for their forever homes.
My husband and I recently adopted from the New Mexico chapter of GALTX. They have been wonderful! The volunteers were incredibly kind and helpful during the adoption process. They made sure we were informed on greyhounds and their unique needs and differences from other breeds. When we couldn't get to Texas to pick up our new boy, a volunteer drove there himself to bring the pup back. They've been great after the adoption, too. I've been in contact with several of them over some minor issues that have come up. They've sent links, advice, and offers of help. I had no idea that when we adopted that we'd be welcomed into such a loving, supportive community. I can't recommend them enough.
I am so very happy to continue to support GALT. The work that they do on behalf of the hounds and families is inspiring. In 2017, they showed their amazing dedication to the hounds by once again stepping up to help in a large emergency situation, the sudden closure of a pet blood bank. Without hesitation, GALT took scores of hounds in to help them find homes. I highly recommend this organization to adopters, donors and volunteers.
I have the privilege of living with three GALT greyhounds in my home. I cannot thank this fine organization enough for trusting me with them and for supporting me in my efforts to give them the best life possible. GALT volunteers are very professional and truly love their charges. They are very helpful and dedicated to the hounds. I am proud to be a GALT member and give my support to GALT.
After one of our greyhounds passed away, we completed an adoption application with GALT. We had been following their work on line for years and felt they were responsible and compassionate. No greyhound needs a home if GALT is anywhere nearby - they take them all. We were thoroughly checked out and were approved for adoption. They suggested we adopt a 9-month old puppy who had had a badly broken leg. GALT had it surgically repaired (she has a plate and 7 screws.) We drove from Maryland to Dallas to pick up our little girl (nearly 2,500 miles round trip.) They selected the perfect dog for us. We could not be happier. We wouldn't hesitate to adopt from them again or to recommend them to others.
This nonprofit group remains firmly focused on its mission through sharp oversight, professional management, and continuous program improvements. Thanks to smart management and its fundraising strengths, GALT can take in dogs needing even the most expensive medical and surgical treatment or extensive foster home rehab. Potential adopters are thoroughly yet realistically screened (an issue with some adoption groups), and adopters receive post-adoption support with the dog's best interests at heart. My experience with GALT comes as a satisfied three-time adopter and volunteer.
GALT runs a tight ship. These dogs get the best of care, no matter where they come from. The organization is run professionally and with great heart, and it's a pleasure to volunteer with them.
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 .
GALT is the finest greyhound adoption group I've ever been involved with. They take in any hound in need and treat each and every one of them with the highest level of care and caring. I can't say enough about how professionally this group is run. The leadership is superb and the volunteers are all wonderful.
GALT is the gold standard among greyhound adoption groups, they go above and beyond for the hounds, dedicated and passionate, we've adopted 3 hounds so far, more in the future!, I can only say positive things about this organization
I love everything GALT does to help the hounds find forever homes and the positive experience I have had as a volunteer. We all pull together to get the job done professionally.
GALT is still as amazing as when I first encountered it. The care they show their dogs, adopters, and volunteers is unprecedented.
I can't say enough about how amazing GALT is. The support you get through adoption and as a volunteer is amazing. I'm proud to be a part of this organization.
