Plea via Charl del Rio for 3 galgos and an old podenco in the perrera in Jaen.
I know everyone is completely saturated at the moment, but not only galgos other dogs are being put to sleep everywhere. But these 4... if there was just a temporary space, or adoption.... it would save their lives!!!!!!!! PLEASE FWD if you cannot help, you may just know someone who can.
A short appeal from Nuria Blanco of Amigos de los Galgos. Loli and her husband of Pedro Munoz shelter were planning on saving some galgos from the dogpound in Ciudad Real near the shelter, but they cannot now take them because of the flooding.
Please can any other associations organise someone to save them and prepare them for adoption.
As if the Spanish shelters, refuges, volunteers, associations working for the poorly treated animals of Spain didn't have enough to cope with, now they have storms, and floods and tornados. There may be some amongst you who will not agree with my question, but I say
Where is God, to look after the innocent animals
Where is St Francis of Assisi to look after the innocent animals?!
Don't tell me they are looking after these animals!
This is a plea for help, from a guy who lives with his parents and has a young galga hidden at home. He lives in a village, he has no car, there is no vet, but it looks like she has a broken paw. At this rate he will have to put her back on the street. This is his message.
I'm Alfonso, a guy from Cordoba. Tuesday night last week while walking my dog, we saw a lump of white on the ground. When I got close, I saw she was a galgo or galga x. She was trying to hide, but she did not get far because she could not walk because her paw is hut. It was raiging, I could not look the other way, so I took her home.
These are pictures from the Pedro Munoz shelter at Ciudad Real, 200km south of Madrid. Loli and a couple more volunteers struggle with nearly 200 dogs. This is a message from Cristina who has spoken to Loli today.
'I have talked directly with Loli from the shelter in Pedro Muñoz and today at least it is not raining there. They have much wind so they hope this will help to dry a bit the whole shelter.
They have been totally devastated. The whole shelter is under water. Fortunately her galgos all have a family waiting in Belgium or Germany. She works for many years with two associations in Germany and one in Belgium who helps them a lot, and also Nuria from Amigos de los Galgos in France.
Have a look at Galgos 112 and click on 'translate the page'. You can read the amazing tales of galgos who have been rescued and are winning their battle for life, including two who both had their front legs broken from beatings.
With the exodus of Brits leaving Spain to return to the UK, it means that many shelters are now losing their volunteers, they have fewer fundraising events organised (Brits are really good at those) and fewer people supporting the events. There are also more dogs being taken to the shelters as the Brits can't take dogs into rented accommodation in the UK.
GRIN has some pleas from the shelters which especially deal with the adorable podencos, as well as other types of dog.
So, you're in Villa Martin in Spain? Nice place? Lots of people on holiday? Oh dear, a tornado struck certain areas. Poor people on holiday. Sarcastic, am I? So, why not, what about the San Anton Shelter in Villa Martin?
Who thought about the poor animals there? Who thought about the poor volunteers, devastated after years of hard work to improve conditions for the animals abandoned and saved by San Anton Shelter? Oh, dear, poor holidaymakers!!! Get out there, you holiday makers, and help repair the San Anton Shelter! Do something worthwhile with your life!
