At this time, Ireland is the current source for retired racing greyhounds. Southland track in West Memphis, AR is ceasing racing December 31, 2022. After that time there will be only 2 tracks left in West Virginia. All of those retired racers will go to adoption groups on the east coast.
For its almost 22 years in existence, GALT has operated as a 501 (c) 3 Corporation. The Irish retired racers’ adoption fee correlates to this policy.Luke’s adoption fee is: $750
Luke, aka Lukes Fizz, is a striking black male born on June 14, 2018. His sire is Skywalker Luke and his dam is Blastoff Fizz. Luke has 37 races to his credit on Greyhound Data and is from Ireland. He should not live with cats or small animals.
Luke is a gorgeous, confident and curious Irish lad. He gives you kisses and loves to be near you though he’s content left in a kennel when I’m not home. He also sleeps in the kennel as he thinks it’s a good place to relax and he’ll go there on his own if I’m staying up too late in his opinion.
