This is BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND for the GreytStore Holiday Charity Shoppe and we want YOU to come out and join us! One of the greyt benefits of the Holiday Charity Shoppe (in addition to shopping and supporting the hounds) is getting to see all our greyhound friends. So don't miss this weekend - bring your hounds out and say hi to all the GALT 2-leggers and 4-leggers, and keep shopping! Items are between 20-75% off AND there is NO TAX! Raffle items will be drawn this weekend, and the Christmas party will be on Saturday from 2-5pm. You won't want to miss this!

GIFT WRAPPING - GALT volunteers will be wrapping packages and spreading the word about greyhound adoption. We provide the bows and gift tags, Barnes and Noble provides the gifts and the wrapping paper, and the greyhounds provide all the fun as they model their Christmas Attire for our FUNdraiser! We are raising funds for our Miss Mesa Fund again this year to keep us finding healthy happy homes for those greyhounds in medical need.

GIVING TUESDAY - On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, GALT will once again participate in Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is an online event where charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Watch Facebook and our website for the donation link for GALT when the event opens!



For 2015, GALT is proud to announce a new membership program that includes for the very first time gifts from small businesses who have pledged their support for the GALT greys. GALT is pleased and honored to partner with these vendors to bring you a variety of gifts for you and/or your greyhounds. The GALT greyhounds depend on your support!


Tomorrow there will be a drawing to win a custom ornament for anyone who signs up or renews their membership prior to the drawing. Find out more about the membership levels and the new gifts!
