Yes. You need this. Your hound needs this. It's too hot outside... don't argue. You'll feel better shopping online in the air conditioning. And what better way to shop than at the GALT 2nd Annual Summer Auction! Talk about an auction with something for everyone - this auction has jewelry, art, home accessories, dog toys (did we mention a Honktapus?), a Coach purse, a life jacket for your boating hound, collars, dog socks, books, apparel, stationary, and something about a monkey. YOU have to go look at it to figure out what that monkey is all about. 


While you are perusing the goods, BID ON THEM! You probably need them and have been denying yourself for awhile now, but since this auction is for a good cause, and the money raised will go to help the GALT hounds, this is a good time to indulge. We can lead a horse to water but we can't make him drink - it is ALL UP TO YOU TO BID HIGH AND OFTEN. And yes, we just compared you to a horse, metaphorically of course. Lighten up. And lighten your wallet. If it makes you feel more comfortable, have a few glasses of wine before you start your bidding. There are wine charms for you drinkers. See? Something for everyone. We weren't kidding! Hurry up, because it begins today but ends on July 20th. You won't want to miss this! Hounds are counting on you. 

Check out the Auction here!

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:
