The Norwegian Defra, Mattilsynet, just released a statement re import of dogs, what they call “street dogs", defines as dogs from shelters/rescues, dogs without owners, dogs with unknown background. This is very sad news as many UK greyhounds and Spanish podencos are adopted there.
1. These dogs will no longer be legal to commercially import.
2. As a private person, you must be able to document that the dog have been owned by you, and lived with you, for minimum 6 months before entering Norway.
Bascially, this means it is no longer possible to adopt/import a rescue dog from over seas effective from the 1st July 2018
Seen in Albacete recently. The local police surprised this galguero who was the driver of a quad dragging seven dogs, galgos. And it's way past the end of the hunting season in January and the next season doesn't start till September! Made it to the local news, need more of this publicity!
Last weekend we have traveled to Murcia to collect more animals whose lives were in serious danger.
The people who rescue them, in the end, always end up getting in touch with us, because despite their multiple appeals, can no other association help them save the lives of these innocent beings?. Total has been 24 dogs, between galgos and podencos. And other animals.......
The black galgo is one of the picked up dogs this weekend in Murcia, he has a broken leg and a vet gave the owner the advice to kill him ?? because the operation would cost a lot of money and he would probably never be able anymore to run enough fast for hunting...
Although we have rescued this year various animals with fractures and almost drown in the costs, we can not look the other way and leave this galgo being killed one way or the other?.
Below are photos of some of the dogs, all ex hunters as you can see.
This is the home of Fermin Perez Martin house, full of galgos and in this video they don´t all appear.
He fosters in his home the oldies and the sick ones untill they recuperate but it´s necesary that they all find forever homes because in the shelter keep arriving oldies and sick ones who need urgently foster and in Fermin's house there is no more room.
👉 If you want to give an opportunity to an older dog to spend his or hers last years of life in a comfortable home and give them the love and attention they so deserve but never have received, than send an email to email@example.com
I am a galgo,greyhound,
I am built for speed,
but now I run from man's misdeeds
I do not mind running
or hunting for you
That is how I am built
That is what I do
But why do you hurt me
When with me you are done
You kill or desert me
When I no longer won
I am a galgo of soft eyes
And softer demeanor
I love all my humans
And am quite a good leaner
Please do not throw me away
In your heart let me stay
I joined the first Manifestation in Strasbourg back in 2012. I've only just been sent the information on the above, so too late for me to get to this one. But this link will take you to the details, if any of you can make it. If you do, let me know so I can publish a report on here next week.
We've made some changes! In April we finalized a couple of important staffing changes and we want you, our dedicated supporters, to hear about them before we announce them in our upcoming Newsletter in June.
Our Founder, Dr. Guillermo Couto, has decided to step down as President of The Greyhound Health Initiative. After serving four consecutive years of his 2-year term we have agreed that his time would be better spent doing what he does best: seeing patients, researching and teaching. This does not mean he is leaving GHI. He will continue to advise our new President, Tina Kelly, and will remain involved in all other GHI activities, though he will primarily focus on education, consultations, and the blood bank. We are excited to give him the opportunity to focus on what he is most passionate about.
The New Animal Protection Act of #clm excludes from its application to #hunting #dogs. This involves distress, abandonment, ill-Treatment, motor training, supply of substances and cruelty by some hunters and the worst, absolute impunity.
