Regular readers know how I publicise the plight of the podencos in the Canary Islands. Sighthounds 2 Save is a Belgian association which helps the Irish greyhound, Spanish galgo and podencos from Tenerife and Lanzarote.
Recently a teacher in New Mexico contacted me about my book on the Spanish Galgo as she wishes to use it with her class of children. She herself has a galgo and you can read the story of it's rescue and rehoming here. I've asked for some photos.
These are part of a pack of galgos that hunters want to trap and kill because they killed a sheep because they were abandoned and starting. There is no room in the refuges so money is needed to pay for them to go into a kennels. A Refuge in Malaga and one in Seville have said they will have room to take the dogs next week. If the hunters get the galgos, they will kill them cruelly in retaliation for the sheep!
You can donate to this special Paypal a/c set up purely for these dogs to go in kennels. firstname.lastname@example.org
A message from Cobie at Scooby Residencia Valladolid. Although the hunting season with galgos does not start on the same day in the whole of Spain, we´re just a few weeks from a new season full of suffering, abandonment, pain and death...! So therefore again this very emotional video!! How many years more??!!
Please today, think of brave Vulcano who will suffer unspeakable torture, pain, terror at the hands of screaming bloodlusters driving spears into his body from horseback - in the Toro de la Vega - despite tens of thousands of Spaniards marching to protest about it. One protester entered the bullring at Merida. See photos below of buses in Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Albacete to mention just 4 cities calling on people to go to Madrid on 14 September to join the march. Organised by PACMA.
