This is a rescue group that takes in all greyhounds, retired racers, coyote hunters, strays, breeding females, injured greyhounds, greyhounds that have lost their homes, mixed breed greyhounds, and sadly, abuse cases. GALT provides the best medical care and then volunteers foster the dogs, teaching them the joys of life in a home until the day they find their forever homes. Before they are adopted GALT absorbs the cost of neutering as well as any medical care a greyhound may need including surgeries. There are no employees, everyone involved is a volunteer and the rescue is well organized, efficient, and exceptionally devoted to the care of these beautiful creatures.
I have adopted two greyhounds through Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. The needs of the greyhounds and their placement as pets in loving, safe homes is paramount to this organization, and the volunteers are tireless. They will not refuse any greyhound in need, even driving long distances to pick up and deliver greyhounds, and they meet all the medical needs of any sick or injured greys. This past summer was their shiningest moment when they took in many greyhounds that had been seized in an animal cruelty case in Fort Worth, Texas. These hounds had no one to speak for them but GALT, and sadly some of therm did not survive their horrid treatment despite all GALT did for them. But the ones GALT has successfully placed in forever homes and foster homes are the ultimate success stories.
We have adopted 6 greyhounds through GALT over a number of years. The greys have come to us in good condition after having been treated lovingly by this group. The volunteers are tireless in their love and work ethic for these wonderful dogs.
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.
