The plight of the galgos has, it seems to me, been worse this year than ever before, and still, all through this summer, volunteers are rescuing starving and injured galgos. A volunteer says, 'in a month and a half the hunting season with galgos starts again and already the galgueros are training their dogs like crazy to get condition on them, to get stronger muscles, more speed, only to leave them behind later in the fields or perreras if they don´t hunt as they want.
Please, adopt a galgo because there are still many left everywhere from the last season, all in need of a loving family and a forever home! For the end of the hunting with galgos in Spain!!
