To date, GALT has assisted more than 3,800 greyhounds and sight hound mixes in finding their forever homes since the organization’s inception in 2001. Depending solely on donations for its operation budget, expenses equate to almost $1,800 over day. Proceeds from this event will provide the funds needed for GALT to continue to provide care and sustenance for the injured, sick and stray neglected greyhounds.
GALT is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit all-volunteer corporation dedicated to placing all greyhounds, primarily those that competed and trained for racing, and sight hounds into loving homes. GALT facilitates the adoption of greyhounds by providing kennel services and foster homes along with their medical needs, including spay and neuter, assisting them in the transition from track-life to home-life, and educating the public about why the greyhound has been a favored companion dog for more than 4,000 years.
