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
Lucy, aka Lucy van Pelt, is a black female born February 12, 2016. His sire is Wheres Pedro and his dam is Bella’s Fancy. Lucy ran 90 races before coming to GALT. She is good with children. Lucy is undergoing intake and we will evaluate her with small animals and cats soon.
Lucy is the sweetest senior lady you’ll ever meet! She is extremely loving and used to being handled by people. She is a little shy – but aren’t we all at first? However, if toys are around, she is quite animated.
This friendly girl is used to interacting with children and is very placid and gentle with them.
Now, Lucy Van Pelt does love her dinner, so may get a little disgruntled if anyone messes with that – so let the lady eat in peace!
Lucy Van Pelt turns 8 in February, all she asks is to find a loving family and forever home so she can be warm, comfortable and loved.
