Additional Adoption Fee Information
GALT is charging an adoption fee of $750 for Australian retired racing greyhounds 7 years and younger and $650 for those 8 and over.
The Australian greyhounds arrive to us spayed or neutered with current rabies vaccinations. The transportation cost averages $1,620 per dog, and GALT spends another approximately $400 for CBC blood work with heartworm test, Protatek testing, dental and vaccinations required for this environment.
For its almost 22 years in existence, GALT has operated as a 501 (c) 3 Corporation. The Australian retired racers’ adoption fee correlates to this policy.
This hound’s adoption fee is: $750
Buck, aka Mega Bucks, is a black male born March 16, 2021. His sire is Barcia Bale and his dam is Pink Scissors. Buck comes to GALT from Australia though he did not race. He is undergoing intake and we’ll know more about him soon.
Buck is a lovable and goofy boy who loves his zoomies, chasing toys and general play. He likes to explore his environment before he becomes fully comfortable with his surroundings and easily adapts after a little while.
Buck can be excitable on the lead initially and settles after a short time. He met small dogs through a fence and showed little interest in them and continued exploring his environment. However, he did have a high prey drive around chickens.
Buck is a fairly independent dog so will be happy to spend time on his own once he settles. He did show some signs of anxiousness when first entering the car and then enjoyed the ride.
