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!
In March 2013 I published this 'Letter to Senor Galguero'. Sadly all it expresses still applies today. The Hunting Federations have not improved matters - no controlled breeding of galgos, no mass abandonment, still keeping them in dark underground locked bunkers....what has changed is that there are now millions of Spanish people who are thoroughly ashamed of the bad press the hunters bring to their lovely country and protest vociferously every year throughout major cities in Spain.
Fermin Perez Martin of Scooby Medina presented a Spanish translation to the Federation of Galgueros when he was in dialogue with them to try and improve the situation. Needless to say, the galgueros refuse to acknowledge they cause a problem!
We must keep supporting those fighting the cruelty perpetrated on galgos by the galgueros in any way we can.
Please feel free to share the 'Letter'but ensure that I am credited as its author.
Many of you ask what happens to petitions you sign. Here is one.

Closing galgo petition to King Felipe VI
Thank you all for your support. We've reached 3,751 signatures and are now submitting the petition and comments to King Felipe VI of Spain copy to Prime Minister Rajoy before the next coursing season starts and thousands of galgos suffer.
There is a law which allows authorities to penalise people who help stray animals. I published about it recently when Malaga put up posters warning people they would be fined 500 euros for helping stray animals! Galicia province is now proposing to enforce the law, so please sign this petition to protest about it. The petition will be printed off and handed to the authorities.
