GALT-Central Texas has high standards for the health and welfare of our greyhounds. GALT-Central Texas’s average medical cost per greyhound is well over $500 and includes the following:
Yes. Anyone interested in adoption should complete the online application and submit the deposit. This will result in your name being added to the current potential adopters listing. If you are interested in a specific dog, please add that to the application so your preferences can be noted by our adoption coordinators.
Yes, GALT-Central Texas will and has adopted to out-of-town and out-of-state applicants. We do require that a home check be completed and we will work with volunteers in your area to accomplish this. Additionally, we require the applicant to come to Austin or Dallas to pick up their greyhound and complete the adoption.
Keep in mind that GALT-Central Texas relies on volunteers to process applications. Applications are reviewed in the order that they are submitted. If our volunteers are able to easily reach your references, the preliminary approval can usually be obtained within a week. The second step of the approval process is to narrow down your preferences for your new hound and coordinate a home check.
