Greyhounds in the Country Greyt Fun

Registration Fee: $10, sign up now at the Greytstore. Address will be given to you after registration.

Event is limited to no more than 40 greyhounds, so reserve your spot NOW! This is a wonderful opportunity to allow your muzzled greyhound to run free on nearly 2 acres of fenced-in countryside! You are responsible for bringing a muzzle, monitoring your greyhound's behavior and picking up after them.

You'll enjoy a delicious Tex-Mex dinner, including dessert, soft drinks, water or coffee. Wine or beer for an additional $10. Your dogs will enjoy home-baked treats.

A bake sale will be conducted to benefit GALT's greyhounds. We will also be collecting collars, leashes and coats for the Spanish Galgos.

This is a really fun event that you will not want to miss! Don't forget to bring your lawn chairs.

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!

We thought it would be good this year to designate a hound for your strut. Nothing makes the point better than to let people know a bit more about the recipient(s) of the funds that you are requesting and how they are put to good use. Once they see those gorgeous eyes and hear their stories, how can they resist? You could pick an Available hound, one who's recovering on Injured Reserve or one who's waiting on the bench in Training Camp to give your fundraising appeal focus!

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 all the money raised will go to help GALT's greyhounds. Together, and through your support, we can live up to our standard of "No Grey Turned Away!"

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:
