2nd Annual Pedal for Paws

On November 16th, gear up for the second annual Pedal for Paws Mountain Bike Challenge, a charity event to benefit Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT).  The ride will be held at LB Houston Nature Preserve mountain bike trail.  All skill levels and all dog breeds welcome.

Every day, a greyhound’s track career ends and the opportunity for a new life begins. But that new life does not come free of expenses. Some greyhounds come off the track healthy, but the vast majority of them have expensive medical needs – broken legs, heartworms, tick-borne diseases, and intestinal parasites. These medical bills can run into the thousands of dollars per dog. Many greyhounds also come to GALT as strays and need medical attention and medication. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Greyhound Adoption League of Texas’ operating budget comes solely from donations from people like you.

By simply making a $15 minimum donation to Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, you can be a part of the first annual Pedal for Paws event. Because GALT is an all-volunteer organization, your money goes directly to helping the hounds. Click here to sign up.
