12th Annual Greyt Gala Dinner & Auction

"Running Home"

Click HERE for fabulous photos by John Hudson!

For over ten years, the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT) has been an organization of choice for retired racing Greyhounds ready to transition to their forever homes. GALT also receives and unconditionally accepts many injured, abused and neglected Greyhounds that are found as strays and in animal shelters.

For most of these Greyhounds, the journey to a loving home comes relatively quickly. For many others, 'running home' is a much longer and harder journey requiring vast amounts of medical care to treat broken legs, heartworm infestation, tick-borne blood diseases, the ravages of near starvation and the time required to heal. GALT's operating budget soared to nearly $400,000 in 2011 and has maintained that level in 2012 due to continued high medical and rehabilitation costs for these sick and injured Greyhounds.

Your attendance at the Greyt Gala this year helped provide the funds needed for GALT to continue to provide care and sustenance for the injured, sick, abused and neglected Greyhounds. Your faith in GALT, your never-ending hope that every Greyhound has a loving home, and your charity at this event continues to make that possible.
