The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is a fantastic organization who cares about every Greyhound who joins their family. They bring each and every dog "back to life" by providing them with a loving environment and all the medical care that they need. They enlist the most amazing volunteers who care for each dog and their outcome for a flourishing and happy life.
The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is an amazing organization. Tremendous amounts of love and care are given to each and every dog that comes into GALT's care. The GALT group does whatever is necessary for each dog received, whether it be medical care, special training, etc. I have been volunteering with this group for a little more than 6 months, and it's the best charity I've worked with so far! Communication is very open, and everyone I've worked with has been very helpful and kind. The love that's lavished upon the greyhounds is tangible. If a dog didn't experience much affection from their previous background, they quickly come to understand how loved they are when they are taken in by GALT.
I have been with GALT since the beginning. Everyone involved with this group are hard working and dedicated people and are first and foremost for the wonderful greyhounds. I have adopted and I have fostered. I have a broken leg foster now. I live in Austin so don't get to participate in alot of the activities although wish I could. John and Susie are wonderful and caring people. I hope to continue helping with this group for many years to come. Jo O'Donnell
I have been following GALT online since 2005. I am now a member and have recently adopted one of their greyhounds. GALT is amazing. No dog is too sick, too feeble, etc. for them to take. GALT does not put a dollar cap on what they will do to rehabilitate dogs. The dog I adopted cost GALT over $4500.
GALT is very active in the community with fund raising, meet and greets, etc. They truly care about greyhounds and want to educate the public on what wonderful dogs they are. Their Facebook page is great. They don't just simply post information about fund raising; they celebrate adoptions, post updates on dogs who are under medical care, and always respond to wall posts and comments from the public.
I've been involved with GALT for eight of it's ten years as a foster and have watched the organization grow both in membership and professionalism. Many of the greyhounds in our care require considerable medical treatment ranging from parasitic, bacterial and viral diseases to broken bones. We never turn away a greyhound in need.
GALT, along with six other groups, took the lead in accepting 9 of the 28 hounds confiscated by Fort Worth Animal Control this past summer. GALT is currently working with FWAC to arrange for greyhounds and other canines in dire need of medical help to be released during the required 72 hours of holding.
