This is yet another heartbreaking story of cruelty to galgos in Spain...this time Jerez, Cadiz.
This poor young galga was would in this skeletal condition with her foot caught in an illegal trap - as if she hadn't suffered enough! The person who found her called the police who called the dog catcher who took her to the perrera...where she was put down. Not a nice story but probably the best for the galga to end her suffering. Who knows how long she had been starving and suffering tied in the trap.
Man is the most damaging and criminal beast with the animals on earth, they should receive no forgiveness.
My name is Albano Martins and I am the founder of ANIMA Macau and proudly serve on the board of directors of GREY2K USA Worldwide. I have been working with Christine Dorchak and Carey Theil since 2012 to close down dog tracks and give greyhounds the second chance they deserve.
Magic the greyhound2017 brought many successes for our campaign to end dog racing, including the shuttering of tracks in multiple countries around the world. Please read all the details in our annual newsletter the Advocate!
Thankfully, one of the tracks that is about to close is the Canidrome, a track which is just across the bridge from my shelter in Macau. It will soon be leveled and replaced with new schools for local children. So now we are working very hard to raise funds for the safe release of the 650 dogs who have been lucky enough to survive this terrible place. One of our supporters is even running a race to help these dogs and the greyhounds in his home state of Florida!
Here are weblinks to 2018 calendars for sale featuring galgos and podencos. They all have squares so you can write in your daily appointments etc. So useful.
Axarquia Animal Rescue have again joined forces with a local artist, Ollie Cordell who has produced a unique and original painting for each month of the year. The finished paintings will soon be winging their way to the lucky recipients! Ollie’s themed designs feature all the animals back view in a sitting position which captures all their individual characteristics and quirks. We are extremely grateful to Ollie, who is donating her time, talent and all the materials for this project.
Calendars are 30x30 with plenty of room to write in the date boxes! BARGAIN at only 5 euros!! (post and packing extra). All your Christmas gift shopping sorted!
Earlier this week, a young Spanish woman was strolling through the field when she came upon a helpless galga, who didn't want to drink or eat. She allowed her to pet her, she thought the galga was just lying there to die.
Isla says, 'Of course, we couldn't look the other way, we caught her to take her to the vet and then we realized that she was injured, that's why she was lying and not moving.
The vet has done all the pertinent tests, he's put serum with vitamins and restorative, he's taken blood samples - of course the galga has no chip - and he's made the plates. She's got a hip fracture, very ugly, at a joint level.
We visited the following day, she is still poorly, they have done an ecograph and she has a lot of fluid and infection. Now it's time to wait for the recovery of her general state, first to save her life and then focus on the injury. She in in the vet clinic in Campillos (Málaga).
Fingers crossed for her, lucky they were walking nearby.
I am a strong believer in controlling the mass over-breeding of dogs...galgos and podencos in particuler...but ALL breeds. The misery and suffering of dogs is caused by the human creature and so I publish here a thought-provoking verse by Debra Jefferson.
