Great read from a volunteer who recently spent time helping with the animals at Scooby. Please consider spending a holiday doing the same thing. You don't have to stay in an hotel, Scooby have caravan accommodation.
Here is a video of the puppies produced by Scarlett and Monika at Pepis Dog Refuge. And a second one. Both bitches were dumped very late in their pregnancies. They all need feeding, along with the other galgos, podencos and rescued dogs. Please donate.
This video was taken by Luca, president of Anpana, the Italian galgo rescue association currently visiting Pepis Dog Refuge in Pedrera. He took this film on the drive down from the village to the refuge. The second half of the video is taken from Pepis. Check out the speed of the vehicle.
I witnessed similar 'training' when I was there, man on quad bike with 4 galgos. This was made illegal in Andalucia but a couple of years back the Junta rescinded the law.
Anpana is the Italian association which supports the galgos at Pepis Dog Refuge and rehomes them. An Italian tv crew also came to visit them, to film the dogs and also to visit a galguero to see how he keeps his dogs...you would be shocked that he should be proud to have people see it! They live chained to the wall in stone animal feed troughs in what is not quite a bunker! The videos of the visit are on facebook. If you are able to visit Pepis Refuge facebook page, you may be able to see the videos. Here is a weblink if you wish to try.
There are 26 galgos currently at Pepis and 18 puppies from the two galga bitches which arrived heavily pregnant. They all need feeding, along with the 50+ other dogs. Please help feed them, and home them. And you will be made very welcome if you want to go and spend a week's holiday volunteering at the refuge. There is a very comfy caravan ready and waiting!
Titan is a rescued Galgo found on a highway in the province of Toledo by a volunteer of Apadat. The vet diagnosed that he has two broken legs. We are an association that does not receive any subsidies or aid from any city. We ask for financial aid in order to pay the veterinary costs. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Pepis Dog Refuge has over 26 galgos, including two bitches who arrived in the late stages of pregnancy. Monique has given birth to 9 puppies, Scarlet is at this moment birthing! Here's a lovely story about one Volunteer who recently spent time helping Jane and Alan at the Refuge. If you would like to volunteer, contact them through the website.
Hi all friends of Pepi`s Refuge!
I want to share my trip to Pepi`s cause for me it was something huge!
Most of all i want to thank you Jane and Alan. So humble and big hearted people! They told me stories about the dogs. Stories about hopelesses and sadnesses which have turned up to happies and forever love.
This beautiful boy is Reilly. As a small puppy, he was left tied by a piece of wire to the gate of Pepis Dog Refuge two years ago and named Phantom because one half of his face is white and one half brown. He was a playmate with my boy Polar, they were pups together. Adopted in the UK and renamed Reilly, sadly due to circumstances beyond his control, he is now in foster in England and waiting for a forever family again.
He is 2 years old, full Pet Passport, no hangups, perfect with other dogs, ready to slot straight into another home.
If you have room for him in your home and your heart, here's the contact.
