Miss Mesa

ABOUT THE FUND

Miss Mesa, aka Mesa Red Babe, is the first greyhound adopted from GALT to make the journey to the Rainbow Bridge. It is in her memory that this fund is created.

Mesa was brought into the GALT family on October 14, 2001, at the age of 6 years, 9 months. She had only known life on the greyhound farm as a brood matron. From the beginning she was very, very special - a truly beautiful girl inside and out. Cindy and Ron Nichols fostered Mesa, and within a few weeks they knew she must join their family. On November 10, 2001, at "Paws for Posterity" Mesa was adopted into her forever home joining Cobbler, a 3-year-old male greyhound, Sam the cat, Cindy and Ron. She settled right in and enjoyed the life she so richly deserved.

However, there was a cloud hovering. Occasionally Mesa would have a limp, which was hoped to be just a sprain, but eventually was diagnosed as osteosarcoma. Mesa went to the Rainbow Bridge on February 1, 2002, just a few weeks after her seventh birthday. Miss Mesa spent only three months in her forever home in the loving care of the Nichols - three months in human time, but to her it was almost two canine years.....the best two years of her all-too-short life.

Cindy and Ron have generously made a contribution to GALT to start the Miss Mesa Fund. Contributions to this fund will be used to pay the cost of medical care for those GALT greyhounds with special medical needs.

Please help Angel's Strays, a fund created in memory of Angel McQuade.
