Sunday, September 22, GALT celebrated Greyhound Planet Day by spreading the word of greyhounds as companion pets at Addison's 15th Annual Oktoberfest!
GALT was located on the front porch and lawn of the historical Stone Cottage, and it was a perfectly lovely location for the greys with many shade trees. Hundreds of folks strolled by, stopping to visit and give a pet or two to the GALT greys. GALT's members and volunteers educated the attending public about greyhounds as companion pets.
Canine Commissary generously sponsored Billy Buttons, so everyone was able to have the commemoration of this first annual Greyhound Planet Day documented by having a picture made with their greyhounds.
Greyhound Adoption League of Texas was the only breed-specific adoption group featured at the festival. GALT's sincere thanks to the City of Addision for once again hosting the greyhounds at this annual fun event.
