A group of dedicated volunteers help GALT in the Central Texas area since GALT's inception in 2001. Based in Austin, these volunteers focus on fostering greyhounds that are on the Injured Reserve list and need long-term care. Greyhounds being treated for tick diseases, racing injuries and heartworms might be fostered in Central Texas until they are healed and can be moved to the Available for Adoption list. These volunteers also assist by helping to transport greyhounds.
Central Texas-area GALT volunteers show off their greyhounds at events throughout Central Texas and welcome anyone who wants to meet a greyhound or bring a greyhound to join them.
If you are in Central Texas and are interested in getting to know more about greyhounds, we can arrange to talk with you and introduce you to our Austin-based greys. Contact area coordinator Sadie Pack via email.
Here are some of the upcoming events in Central Texas that you can find us at:
