GALT's 2023 Luck-of-the-Irish Auction!
Just in time for St. Patty’s Day -- An auction with fun stuff for you and/or your favorite people and pups. Help us celebrate our 28 Irish greys!
GALT’s Irish Grey project is now well underway, and this auction will help defray the expenses for the program. In the last three months, GALT has taken in 28 retired Irish racers via the GPA Irish Greyhounds to America Program. We plan to continue this effort going forward, since the supply of domestic greys has diminished due to the phase-out of most greyhound racing in the U. S. over the past few years.
The Irish hounds have come to GALT already spayed or neutered, but the costs of transport from Ireland and the remaining medical care and boarding expenses are significant. Therefore, the special adoption fee for an Irish hound is $1,250, which is still considerably less than our expenses. Won't you help us cover these costs while shopping in our Luck-of-the-Irish auction for some special items for you and/or your friends and family?
In addition to the usual greyhound-themed art, jewelry, accessories and home goods, we have included several gift cards and other “non-dog" items as gift ideas for some of your other friends and family members. Even if you don't need more "stuff" right now, you can still help by making one or more gifts of $25 via Auction Item #20 -- GALT's Irish Grey FAN (Fund-A-Need) Club!
Many thanks to all of the donors and volunteers who have helped put together our first 2023 online auction. Now we just need generous bidders to bring us some Irish luck and make this one of our best auctions ever!
