The holidays are finally here! Have you finished all of your shopping? For those last minute gifts, wouldn't it be great to just purchase something online and have it ready right away? Well you can! Making a donation in someone's name is a great gift-giving idea! A donation to GALT's greyhounds, whether general or a stocking stuffer gift, means greyhounds who don't have homes this holiday still get to celebrate! Buy a loved one tickets to the Greyt Gala as a stocking stuffer in your home! No hectic parking, no dealing with crowds and lines, or picking out colors and sizes (unless you are adopting a greyhound for Christmas). Just a few clicks and DONE! Do it in your jammies! Do it naked! The greyhounds don't care as long as you DO IT! Last-minute tax planning?  This is a GREYT time to make cash or in-kind donations to GALT!  Here are some ways you can help the hounds-- and generate charitable deductions for that next tax return:
Tax receipts will be provided for all of the above.  Your continuing support of GALT is deeply appreciated.  Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!

Stocking right
It's time to stuff stockings again this year! Each GALT greyhound has a stocking - help us fill them with goodies for Christmas! Just five $5 donations will send a bag of treats to a GALT greyhound. The more donations a hound gets, the more stuff will go in their stocking. Let's make sure every greyhound gets some treats!
