What can we say about sweet Sandra? Sandra, aka D O Sandra Lee, is a gorgeous, black, 7-year-old female born September 1, 2006. Her sire is Trent Lee and her dam is Whistler's Kick. Sandra has a tiny bit of white on her chest. She has 12 races to her credit starting July 24, 2008, at Palm Beach Track in Florida, and finishing on March 19, 2009, at Valley Race Park in Harlingen, Texas. She is one sweet, loving girl! Twice, Sandra was in a home for two years, but both times has returned to GALT due to a change in family circumstances.

Sandra's cat test: Sandra is not considered cat tolerant. She showed interest, then slyly turned away because she knew she wasn't getting what she wanted on-leash and muzzled. She couldn't help herself a few minutes later when she saw the cat in action, though. Later when she saw another cat, there was definite snapping action behind the muzzle.

Sandra is very shy and needs a family that will give her lots of love. Through absolutely no fault of her own, she has been with two families for 2 years each and had to be returned due to financial difficulties. She is a perfect angel in my house. She gets along well with all of my other greyhounds. She is easily startled and I think she just needs someone to give her reassurance. She has not suffered separation anxiety to my knowledge. I leave her uncrated when I leave and she is fine. She attended the GALT Birthday party and this girl loves to run and was also caught standing in the baby pool. She is a beautiful girl who has enjoyed helping me garden in the back yard. She sleeps peacefully through the night either on a dog bed by my bed or on a bed in my den area or in her crate. She also loves to sleep on the tile floor by my back door. In fact she spends most of her day sleeping. She knows her name and will readily come when called because she knows I give ear rubs when she arrives by my side. Won't you please consider giving this big beautiful black girl a permanent place in your home? She is a sweetheart!

GALT's volunteer's with their greyhounds and fosters will be greeting the public on Saturday May 10 at Market Hall, 2100 N. Stemmons Fwy, Dallas, from 10:00am-6:00pm. Admission and parking is free!

Strutt Your Mutt logo

It's that time of year again - when we strut our stuff for the GALT greyhounds. The best part is that you can strut anywhere - in your neighborhood, at the gym or even by just kicking back on your couch if that is your preferred style. You don't need a greyhound to strut; you don't even need a dog!

The Central Texas GALT representatives will be stepping out this year in Austin on September 13th in the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Walk and need our support. If you're interested in participating in the actual walk in Austin, please contact us for more details. We can, of course, be with them in spirit, but we can also show our support no matter where we are as they put their best feet forward for the GALT greys!

Your generous support of Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc. in past years has enabled us to help many greyhounds in need. In the last fiscal year, we accepted 149 hounds into our program. This included 11 with broken legs; a stray momma saluki/greyhound mix with 7 newborn puppies; and notably, 3 stray male greyhound pups tied together with shoestrings. During this same timeframe, GALT found loving homes for 153 hounds! 

Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for our team to raise funds or by donating to one of our existing team members. Your donation is tax-deductible and all the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. Together, and through your support, we can live up to our standard of "No Grey Turned Away!"

To donate via CASH or CHECK instead of CREDIT CARD, please make the check out to Greyhound Adoption League of Texas or enclose a note with the cash and send to:
