Ann Marie Payne is with SOS Animals in Coin and has become very concerned about the number of posts for lost dogs! Here's what she writes.
'Lately I've seen so many posts about newly adopted dogs escaping.
You may be excited at the idea of having a new dog, but your dog is probably terrified and will want to flee at the first opportunity.
Please try to put yourself in their mind and try to imagine this.
They may have had a miserable life and ended up in the pound, or simply might have got lost and ended up in there. The pound is not a nice place, and many struggle to survive mentally as well as physically. They go into foster and regain some of their trust, only to find themselves crated up and off to somewhere new.
Black galgos and greyhounds are always overlooked when offered for adoption. Why? With the right care and food, they are stunning...their black coats shine and dazzle much more than a light coloured hound. Here are 10 reasons to adopt a black hound!
With so much pressure on them from animal rescue associations, Seprona are taking the problem of animal abuse much more seriously. Sadly for the hunting hounds of Spain - who suffer so much abuse and maltreatment, this report only applies to domestic animals. The hunting hounds are not helped as many of the members of Seprona are also hunters. This story is a report on work by Seprona in Malaga.
In the more than 200 inspections carried out the Guardia Civil has found facilities in lousy condition with sick animals, dead, crowded and with dangerous and sharp elements
Agents of Service of protection of the nature of the command of the Guardia Civil of Malaga, under the direction and coordination of the Office of the Environment, have proceeded to the investigation of 50 persons, among them two veterinarians, and to the intervention and Immobilization of 316 animals for alleged offences of ill-treatment and/or abandonment of domestic animals.
In the research, in the framework of the operation ' Malum ', began last January framed in the campaign #Yosipuedocontarlo launched by the Directorate General of the Civil guard against the abuse and abandonment animal, whose objective is to raise awareness to the citizens To promote the necessary measures in the protection and welfare of the animals of the company and to denounce the contrary behaviors of which they had knowledge.
What were you doing last Sunday, 3rd September 2017? For me it was the day of my 6th Fun Dog Show (see video below). Galgos 112 were busy rescuing 3 abandoned galgo pups, read their report.
We started on Sunday morning with the bleak picture of these three galgo puppies, we picked them up yesterday in Linares (Jaén) lying on the street, they are in lousy condition and meals for scabies. It was four, one came to us dying and failed to get out, it was so bad that the vet had to put her to sleep so she wouldn't suffer anymore.
Every day we understand less what they do with these poor animals, so much lack of humanity and so much misery who are these people to have such a hard heart?
The funny thing about the story is that we found the first puppy two days before the rest and in a different neighborhood, but next to the place where the others appeared.
Hell on earth for the Spanish galgos in Spain never ceases.
ElArahal, Sevilla - a dead galga which has been shot in addition to signs of animal abuse. This is not the first time one has been found dead in the same area. In the vicinity there is a galgo racing track, does this have anything to do with it?
I've been very busy these last few days organising and setting up for our 6th Fun Dog Show at our home in France, raising much-needed funds for Pepis Dog Refuge, Pedrera, Seville. Here's a video I took of the showground and Best Crossbreed class. The judge was M Jean-Pascal Bichon, sponsors Blevins Franks for rosettes and souvenir programme and Pro-Nutrition Flatazor for the dog prizes.
My galga Carmela and Podenca Andaluz Bebe were both entered in the Best Veteran over 7 years old but unplaced, and galgo Polar entered Most Obedient - just missing out on a rosette.
