We have been involved with GALT for nearly 15 years as volunteers and our most rewarding role as a foster family. We thoroughly enjoy the community created by this organization. The group rallies whenever there's a need! We ensure every greyhound, or sighthound, that comes into our fold gets the attention they require. Nothing gives us more satisfaction than to foster a greyhound to get them ready for their forever home and then use our revolving door of love to help another.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Great organisation doing great work for the greyhounds.
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!
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.
I am so proud to be part of such a wonderful organization. I have fostered puppies (and other dogs) for GALT. First of all, taking in litters of puppies is an effort in itself, but moreover, these poor darlings would be dead or homeless if GALT didn't step in. Below is a photo of a puppy that GALT saved from terrible conditions. Thank you GALT for all you do!
I encountered GALT from a friend's referral when we moved to the DFW area. I didn't look them up at first, but my friend kept nagging me and saying...this is the best greyhound rescue in the country. After awhile, I connected with GALT, and began fostering and volunteering occasionally, but the entire organization is so friendly and well-run that I'm now fundraising for them too. The best part about GALT is that they are an all-volunteer organization, so every single dime goes to the care and placement of the rescued dogs.
The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas lives its mission everyday. The greyhounds are taken care of from intake to adoption by this team of dedicated volunteers.
The Greyhound Adoption League of Texas is an outstanding all volunteer organization whose mission remains true and strong since its inception. Incredible people helping these retired athletics find their forever homes. Absolutely the best adoption group ever!!!
GALT really goes the extra mile for the dogs and has a wonderful team of volunteers working tirelessly together.
I have been a volunteer with GALT for about 6 months now. I love that a dog is not available until they are completely healthy and ready for their forever home! What an amazing group that always has the best interest of the hounds as top priority.
I recently learned about this type of dog breed as well as this Nonprofit. It is wonderful news to know there is a special group of people seeking forever homes for these wonderful companions.
I became a first-time greyhound owner and volunteer at nearly the same time because I could immediately tell that GALT is a well-oiled machine. Their motto, "no grey turned away," is impressive and since my adopted boy was a stray found with paint-ball marks on his body, I'll be forever grateful they took him in and prepared him for his forever home.
I've never volunteered with an organization that doesn't have to pull teeth to get its volunteers to step up! Everybody is always willing and goes the extra mile--anything for the Greys!
