About Our Auction

GALT’s Salum Auction Extravaganza — Cooking for the Hounds!

With the phase-out of most U.S. greyhound racing in the last three years, a huge portion of the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT) budget has gone for the basics — room and board for the greyhounds! We have had 40-50 dogs at our Houn House kennel for a good part of the past two years, and our expenses for food alone exceed $23.5K per year. Basic lease payments at the kennel (excluding utilities, capital improvements and other extraordinary expenses) add another $36K per year.

You can help FEED & HOUSE THE HOUNDS by participating in this online auction, which is being held in conjunction with a related fundraiser, GALT’s Cooking for the Hounds – A Dia de los Muertos Celebration – with Chef Abraham at Salum Restaurant in Dallas. Chef Abraham will host a gourmet cooking demo with a special tasting menu on Sunday, October 24th, from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. Those in the DFW area can attend in person, taste some wonderful Salum food and participate in a silent auction onsite. Zoom attendees will receive a $50 Salum gift card (valid at Salum’s Dallas restaurant), a bottle of wine, and the opportunity to take part in a special live auction. No matter where YOU are, you can participate in this fundraising extravaganza by bidding often and generously here on some amazing online auction items!

This special online auction opens at 8:00 am CDT on Thursday, October 14th, and closes the day after the Salum event – at 9:00 pm CDT on Monday, October 25th. We have some new and unique items for your shopping pleasure – for example:

1. An original “Hound Dog” oil painting by artist Calonnie Gragg

2. A vintage Celtic greyhound pin by Carmon Deyo of Black Horse Design

3. NorthCoast Greyhound Support pendants, earrings and an awesome ring fashioned from walnut and amber

4. Greyhound art by Sarah Snavely, Alfred Hagel and others

5. Designer handbags, jewelry, gift packages and more!

Don't need any more "stuff" for yourself or your friends or family? How about just making a donation of $25, $100 or more for Room & Board for the Hounds? See items 29 and 30 for this option!

Won’t you please help GALT celebrate its 20th Anniversary by participating in this online auction? You can make a donation and/or pick up some nice goodies for yourself or gifts for your friends and family. And if you are in the DFW area, we’d love to see you at Salum on October 24th – in person or via Zoom!
