Thank you for your interest in adopting a greyhound! Greyhounds make wonderful pets and will give you many years of love and devotion. Adopting a greyhound is a serious responsibility requiring a long-term commitment. GALT's adoption application has been designed to evaluate potential adopters to ensure that each person who adopts a greyhound is not only aware of that responsibility, but also to address the suitability and permanence of each greyhound placed in a home.
Please read the application thoroughly and consider your responses carefully - this is an important step towards adoption.
Adoption applications will not be considered unless they are complete and the $75.00 adoption application deposit has been paid. Out of town adopters must come to Dallas to adopt their chosen greyhound. Applicants must be 21 or over.
You can pay the deposit online by going to the Adoption Application Deposit item in the GreytStore. This will give you a Confirmation Number that you will need to include on your adoption application, or you can mail an application to GALT with a check or money order for $75. $25 of the deposit is non-refundable, and all of it applies to the adoption donation fee.Online Application Print Application
Online applications can be processed more quickly, please use the online application if possible. If you need to use the printable application, please mail it with your deposit to:Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Inc.
Greyhounds on Injured Reserve are not available for applications or appointments until they are recovered and made available for adoption. GALT's non-refundable tax-deductible adoption donation fee is $350 for all greyhounds under 7 years, $275 for greyhounds 7 to 9 years, and $225 for greyhounds age 10 and up. The remainder of the adoption fee donation is due when the greyhound is adopted. Your adoption donation allows GALT to help the next greyhound! GALT's average cost per greyhound is over $500.00 - read more in the Adoption FAQ about what we do for our dogs. Not all adoption groups offer the high quality medical procedures that GALT does. Be informed before your adopt.
GALT greyhounds come with their medical history, implanted microchip, a greyhound martingale collar, a leash, a muzzle, a belly band (for boys), a dental care start-up kit, and additional informational material.
See below and check out the Greyhound FAQ for more detailed information.
Unless you have previously owned a greyhound or currently have a greyhound or other large dog, GALT does not recommend that families with children under five years of age adopt a greyhound.
