A few days ago GRIN received information about a Galgo abandoned on the streets in Puebla de Cazalla, Sevilla. The pictures are shocking, but we cannot turn our faces from what this poor creature has endured.
The rescue of this poor boy began with a lady named Macarena who spotted him in this village. The word went out and various rescuers, Lydia, Salva, Jero, MaCarmen and Maca got together and easily caught him due to his weakened and emaciated state.
Our friend Silvia in Valencia was informed and was the first to offer to bring him across Spain from Sevilla to Valencia to her vet. She began the urgent transportation link via private transports because of his delicate state of being. On Friday Aug. 7th Parchito arrived in Valencia and is safe now.
He has had a blood transfusion and is being treated. They gave him a bath and he is eating and drinking. Silvia said that when they opened the door of the car to receive him he was shaking in terror, not knowing what was happening to him. In a short time, with kind words and treatment, he even licked her hand. It will be a long road of recovery as the vet thinks he had been deliberately burned on parts of his body, had wounds all over and has the mange as well.
Silva said he looked worse in person than in the picture but we know that he now has a chance to be safe and someday find his forever home. GRIN is happy to take donations for Parchito’s ongoing medical expenses as this will take some time. If you would like to donate via our PayPal account, just earmark your donation to Parchito. We will keep everyone up to date on his progress. We also want to thank everyone involved in his rescue.
If you would like to help with Parchito's care, please email Silvia personally on the email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be most happy to hear from you and very grateful,(you can write to her in English) or enter into http://www.galgorescue.org/ and payment can be made through GRIN in order to make things easier for this lil guy! It's a miracle he was found. thank God for the galgos guardian Angels.
