Apologies for the lack of news recently. It's not because there isn't any news - galgos are still being abandoned and dumped in the perreras in their hundreds - Scooby and Baasgalgo have taken dozens and Pepis Refuge have had more dumped at their gates. I'm nearing completion of my next book, and that's what has taken me away from the updates. Herewith an appeal from Jacky Cotton for help for a beautiful small galga. Jacky tells Una's story.
This is Una, a 4-year-old small galgo. Although outside our normal remit - our specialisation is puppies - we could not leave her lying injured and unable to move at the side of the road, having been dragged behind a moving scooter. She was in great pain.
We took her to the vet immediately, where, after X-rays, it was discovered that she had snapped ligaments in her leg which required immediate surgery. She also tested positive for heartworm.
The treatment has cost 950 Euro to date.
It is now three months since her surgery and, as you can see from the last picture, she is well on the mend, having needed intensive rehabilitation. The fosterer she has been with has done a sterling job with her, but is unable to continue after the middle of April.
She is a lovely, gentle soul who has been through a lot and so deserves a second chance in life.
At the present time no one has come forward to adopt her and I am writing to you all to see if you can help, if you were able to take her in we would sponsor her until she is rehomed. She is fully vaccinated and micro chipped, not spayed but that can be arranged. She is near Cadiz.
If anyone can help please contact Jacky at email@example.com or via our fb page puppiesincrisis
Thank you for taking the time to read her story. Jacky
