Greyhound Awareness Month is a time chosen each year to honor the Greyhound and its relatives throughout the world. The purpose of this international event is to raise the public's awareness of the wonder and magic of Greyhounds as pets, and educate others on the current status of Greyhounds around the world.
GALT is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer, non-profit group dedicated to placing all greyhounds, primarily those that competed and trained for racing, into loving homes. GALT facilitates the adoption of these “retired athletes” by providing kennel services and foster homes along with all their medical needs, including spay and neuter, assisting them in the transition from track life to home life; and educating the public about why the greyhound has been a favored companion dog for more than 4,000 years.
