Dear ,

We can't even begin to express our sincere gratitude for each and every one of our supporters, adopters, donors and volunteers! Together we make a real difference in achieving GALT's mission of never turning a grey away. 
Since GALT's inception in 2001, we have all worked together to assist more than 2,500 greyhounds and other sighthounds in finding their forever homes. Click here to see a list of each of these wonderful pups! We wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons and look forward to working together for years to come!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!   
PHOTO OF THE WEEK              

This week's photo of the week is the wonderful Dixon and his new human on adoption day! Congrats to both! Dixon will be an urban dog, showing how these big hounds can handle apartment life! They look so happy together! If you have a photo you would like to share with us, please email it to

After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, we get a break from the consumerism on December 1st for Giving Tuesday! GALT is participating in Giving Tuesday again this year and we hope you will join us! Click here to see a short informative video about the day and watch for the donation link on GALT's social media on Tuesday.

After you give, be sure to celebrate your contribution by sharing an unselfie photo with us on social media! Use hashtags #unselfie and #GivingTuesday. Thanks to all who make the day a success with a donation and by spreading the word in social media!    
The GreytStore Holiday Charity Shoppe is at 5803 Greenville Avenue in Dallas on November 27, 28, 29 and December 5th from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm! Stop by to see many new GreytStore items including toys and collars as well as the special selection of vintage Hermes designer scarves! If you're considering splurging on these beautiful scarves, November 27 (Black Friday) and November 28th are "Tax Free Days!" That means no matter how much you spend, you don't pay any sales tax (an 8.25% savings)! This tax free special applies to the GreytStore on-line too! Be sure to cash in on this amazing opportunity and help the hounds!

While you're at the Shoppe, you can also take a look  - in person - at the marvelous pink greyhound Hermes scarf. Once you see it, we know you'll be ready to place your bid in the on-line auction. Bidding on this beauty closes on December 5th!

Cartier Scarf In addition, the Shoppe offers awesome raffle prizes that can double as fantastic holiday gifts! For example, you can win the gorgeous, bold Cartier leopard scarf, vintage circa 1981, pictured here. It's valued at $300 but raffle tickets cost only $10 for three! The raffle drawing will be held around 4:00 pm on December 5th, during the GALT Christmas Party!  You do not need to be present to win. However, raffle tickets are available exclusively in the Shoppe.

And, if all that isn't enough, you still have time to sign up for family photos with Santa by John Hudson Photography. Click here to sign up today (your personal information is only available to the GALT admin).  If you can help spread the holiday cheer by volunteering at the Shoppe, sign up here.
