PHOTO OF THE WEEK           
Our photo pick this week is Murray's snout!  Snout shots are always popular but Murray's smile makes this shot really special. Murray, fka Mercury, came to GALT as a stray and went to his forever home last May.  If you have a hound photo you would like to share in GALT's social media, please email it to socialmedia@galtx.org.   
Some of the amazing authentic vintage Hermés scarves offered at the Holidays, Hermés and Hounds event are also available NOW in the GreytStore for those who are unable to attend the event in person! Click here to see the on-line selection!  Be sure to check back. We're adding scarves to the GreytStore as fast as we can get them photographed!

On October 25, 2015, many hounds and humans joined GALT for our annual blessing of the hounds across from Les Lacs Linear Park in Addison, Texas.  Thanks to Rev. Melissa Bitting who conducted the blessing.  Attending dogs each received an individual blessing, a St. Francis of Assisi medal, and a blessing certificate. The names of all the hounds who crossed the Rainbow Bridge since the 2014 blessing were read aloud with a moment of silence to remember them. Please click here to see more photos from the blessing. 


If you have been considering fostering, or know someone who is considering fostering, now would be a great time to jump in! If you can help, please contact Jennifer Vilches at  fostering@galtx.org.
