Tickets

The Greyt Non-Event Fundraiser

Save the date, or don't! Join GALT in the third annual celebration of roaching on the couch! There are no volunteer shifts to fill, no having to wish you were here, and no driving in the end-of-summer heat! All the seats are guaranteed to be front row, because the event is happening wherever you happen to be that day. This event is all about what greyhounds do best - being couch potatoes extraordinaire! Your $25 ticket gets you the following:

  • A meal that we won't provide
  • A raffle ticket for the raffle items we didn't collect
  • An event shirt - the shirt is for real! But it will arrive late since we have no volunteers working.

Join us in this favorite event of R&R - Relaxing and Roaching!!!

Strut Your Mutt Fundraiser

It's that time of year again - when we strut our stuff for the GALT greyhounds. The best part is that you can strut anywhere - in your neighborhood, at the gym or even by just kicking back on your couch if that is your preferred style. You don't need a greyhound to strut; you don't even need a dog!

The Central Texas GALT representatives will be stepping out this year in Austin on September 13th in the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Walk and need our support. If you're interested in participating in the actual walk in Austin, please contact us for more details. We can, of course, be with them in spirit, but we can also show our support no matter where we are as they put their best feet forward for the GALT greys!

Your generous support of Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc. in past years has enabled us to help many greyhounds in need. In the last fiscal year, we accepted 149 hounds into our program. This included 11 with broken legs; a stray momma saluki/greyhound mix with 7 newborn puppies; and notably, 3 stray male greyhound pups tied together with shoestrings. During this same timeframe, GALT found loving homes for 153 hounds!

Please join us for this fun-filled event either by registering for our team to raise funds or by donating to one of our existing team members. Your donation is tax-deductible and 100% of the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. GALT's 200 members are proud to live our motto, No Grey Turned Away™, each and every day. Please support GALT's 2014 Strut Your Mutt efforts!

To donate via CASH or CHECK instead of CREDIT CARD, please make the check out to Greyhound Adoption League of Texas or enclose a note with the cash and send to:

Here's the really exciting part: Every gift made on September 18th helps our chances of winning prizes given throughout the day ranging from $500 to $10,000! With over 60 total prizes being awarded throughout the day, our chances to maximize your gift are great!

In just five years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped more that $60 million into the North Texas community. In 2013, more than 75,000 gifts were given totaling $25.2 million, benefiting more than 1,350 nonprofits.

How to Help the Hounds

  • Play in the scramble! A fun and exciting way to help - you don't need to be a pro to play or win a prize!
  • Volunteer to help! We need lots of volunteers to run this event. If you don't want to play golf, it's still a great event to volunteer for.
  • Make a direct cash donation. The hounds always need help, and we've recently incurred the cost of two broken leg surgical repairs.
  • Become a sponsor of the event.
  • Make an auction item or raffle item donation for the event.
  • Spread the word! Do you know someone who would like to play or donate? Tell them about the event.
