Week of July 23, 2012




GALT is hosting the first major fundraiser since the 2012 Gala with the current Summer Online Auction. 

There are some grand items that you won't want to miss - in fact over 200 of them ranging from jewelry to artwork to apparel and lots and lots in between! 
Spot the Peacemaker


Your support in this event allows GALT the ability to help greyhounds in need - currently Catalina, whose racing career ended Saturday July 21 with a plantar ligament injury.  She arrived to GALT's family on Tuesday, July 24, and will undergo evaluation and surgery July 25.  Based on past similar injuries, the cost of her surgery will be between $2000 and $2500!    Catalina joins the 18 - YES EIGHTEEN - other greyhounds who are currently on GALT's Injured Reserve list.  The cost for the medical care of these greys is HUGE! 


PLEASE HELP by Bidding High and Bidding Often! 


Thank you sincerely for your support of GALT's greyhounds!

2013 Greyt Gala Committee Now Forming!
The 2012 Greyt Gala - Faith, Hope and Charity was GALT's most successful gala fundraiser ever!  The monies raised from that event enabled us to continue to uphold our Mission and continue to live by "No Grey Turned Away".  We are committed to a repeat (and even better!) performance this year but cannot do it without the help of our volunteers.  We need your help to make this year's event a success for GALT and the greyhounds!
The committee needs help in all areas for planning and event day participation. For instance, Registration, Volunteers, Checkout, Securing Auction Items, Setup, Breakdown, GreytStore, and Decorations. If you have an interest in participating and can give a little of your time for any part of the Gala, let us know!
The Gala Committee would also like to hear your suggestions for this year's theme.  It must be consistent with our Mission and "No Grey Turned Away" and communicate the good that we do for greyhounds.  Please submit all suggestions by July 31, 2012.

Warrior is the most regal looking boy in the tribe! His noble looks are enhanced by a stunning Roman nose and brindle spots. He is very affectionate and gets along well with other dogs but likes to be first to go out or come back in in a spunky kind of way. His house manners are great. He's never had a potty accident, likes his crate, and doesn't counter surf. At night he sleeps in my bedroom with the other dogs and sleeps through the night even if one of the other dogs wants to go out.


Just the suggestion of a walk gets him all excited, but he settles down and walks well on his leash. He's quite strong and will try to take advantage of an opening door, but we are working on that. Warrior is a fun-loving boy who likes to play and gnaw on a good bone. He is learning to run around the backyard with the other dogs and loves it! He thinks riding in a car is fabulous and he'll wait to be told he can come out. He's not a barker unless he sees a squirrel or thinks he's been outside too long - then he'll give 2 loud woofs. This tall, classic looking grey is one-of-a-kind!


-Warrior's foster mom

Catalina, aka C Ya Catalina, is a 4-year-old brindle female born May 28, 2008. Her sire is Dodgem By Design and her dam is C Ya Movada. Catalina has 74 races to her credit, all at Gulf Greyhound Park. She began her career on December 23, 2010 and ended it on July 20, 2012 with a torn plantar ligament. She is under the care of Dr. Stephen Kerpsack of Central Texas Veterinary Surgery Hospital, and will be recuperating in a foster home very shortly.
