Doesn't mantion Spain, but the photo is of a starve galgo. Greyhounds Rescue Holland reports on the screening of maltreatment of abandoned animals in Europe and demands that the European Parliament enforces current legislation.
A Demonstration has been organised for 9th June, 2012 in Strasbourg in front of the European Parliament. Meet at 2pm (1400) to march for 1 1/2 hours to protest about the maltreatment of galgos and podencos by the Spanish hunters. Bring your hounds too, if possible. It is hoped that as many associations and individuals will come in large numbers to gain maximum publicity.
Where possible, car sharing transport could be arranged.
URGENT ACTION NEEDED ~ Please email Boris Johnson ~ (address on link)
Please email Boris Johnson, the current Mayor of London, presently campaigning for re-election and request he withdraws his support for the return of greyhound racing and the gambling on dogs to Walthamstow in East London. Please also ask for his assurances that the industry will not receive funding from central government to subsidise the declining and cruel dog racing industry.

And the poor cream galgo is wandering the streets, abandoned, in Cordoba. Scavenging around rubbish bins for what he can get, some people are leaving food in bags, he's got an abandoned puppy for company. Need to find a place for him, anyone room in a shelter, foster...anything to get them off the street. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
