GALT volunteers were waiting eagerly Wednesday morning at VCA Preston Park Animal Hospital in Dallas, to welcome eight new greys from the Hialeah track in Miami. As previously advised in the GALT eNews, the Friends of Greyhounds group was given four weeks to move over 60 greys when its adoption kennel at the track was closed. GALT stepped up to help by taking these greys into our organization. GALT's eight new greys were given a little exercise after the long drive from Florida, followed by baths, photos and lots of TLC.  


Please consider making a donation to help with their expenses; they will be in boarding until foster homes can be secured. If you have been considering fostering, please contact Jennifer Vilches. If you cannot foster at this time, won't you consider donating to GALT's Miss Mesa or General Funds to help defray the medical processing and boarding costs? The new hounds could really use your help!

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:
