21st November 2007 - the day my blog Galgo News was launched. The first of its kind, my remit was to give publicity to the plight of the galgos and podencos in Spain and the Spanish Islands, sharing information from the rescue associations working 'on the ground' and supporting them in their fundraising and efforts to rehome these fabulous hounds, so maltreated by the Spanish hunters.
Galgo News was born 3 years after facebook was launched, and was a trailblazer in promoting all aspects of galgos and podencos...especially the annual massacre and abandonment of tens of thousands of these innocent and loyal animals, so abused by their galgueros and cazadores.
Having had a greyhound in the UK, when I moved to France in 2002 I was searching for an association through whom I could adopt a greyhound again, and came across the galgo. I joined L’Europe des Levriers and in 2007 travelled with their team to Spain to collect my first galga, Karmel. I wrote an article on the trip which was published in the Weekly Telegraph and you can read the story of the trip on this weblink.
I have received the following request from Greyhound Friends Netherlands, raising funds for Scooby. Please vote for them.
'In our country is a contest going on called Serieus Request, the organization with the most votes wins €3500.
Greyhoundsfriends is participating this contest for Scooby. We want to win this amount of money for Scooby because they need new fences around the shelter and the quarantine kennels need urgent renovation.
We received many votes and our project is in the top 10 now.
People can vote only once with their email address, till 25th December.
Can everyone please sign and share the below petition. The French government is about to approve legislation which will put a stop to subsidised employment contracts at, for example, SPAs. Without these contracts most SPAs will not have enough members of staff to keep going and the animals in their care will suffer. It is already so difficult for them with record numbers of abandoned animals!!!
I hate these bloody galgueros who say to a volunteer...take my galgo or I will kill it/take it to a perrera.
They are bastards plahying on people's emotions when they have none! This is an appeal for 5 galgos (1 male, 4 female) to get them to a place of safety...the galguero has already taken a 6th to a perrera.
Caroline Albessart writes. 'With a Spanish friend, we are trying to save galgos which are still in the hands of their galguero. They gave us a few days to find an association (or more than one) to save them. We are looking for association to add to a group where we will share the different galgos we are trying to save. They give us little time.
None will be fed properly, none will be healed if necessary, none will survive this month if no association comes to help them.
The Galgeros care so little about their fate, they send pictures where they barely see them. You wonder if they want them to be put down.
