GALT currently has 38 dogs. Nine of those dogs are waiting in boarding for a foster home, while the remaining 29 are in 20 foster homes. We have eight more greyhounds arriving the first week of June. We're also looking for a foster home specifically to take in a 9-month-old puppy who is not suited to racing. The foster home situation is getting critical. We urgently need to move dogs out of boarding to make room for the new incoming dogs. 
We know this is a difficult time of year with summer vacations and lots of activities. But please, if you've ever thought about fostering a greyhound, consider fostering one now. We've never had such a low number of homes taking on foster dogs, and the greyhounds are going to keep rolling in. We never know from day to day what the next phone call will bring: another broken leg? a set of strays? a female with puppies? a kennel closure?
Foster homes enable us to be true to our goal of No Grey Turned Away. If you can help, please contact Jennifer Vilches

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, 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: 

Best Friends Animal Society
Attn: Strut Your Mutt
