this is heart breaking i dont need a drawing for its well easy to imagine my guts churn and my eyes weep for these poor little babies oh how i wish i could set my own rescue up to lower the numbers in these pereras they dont deserve any of this suffering once again because of the ignorance and selfish ness of the majority of the hunters but yet i cant help feeling that i am guilty aswell because i cant help any of these lost souls in offering a home i can donate a little once in a while but i know thats no where near the help they want breakes my heart i did donate 20 through to baas galgo yesterday and will go on site now its up and running and will help with donations as and when i can aw bless all them little sweet hearts born to die it cuts me to the core


I feel so sorry for Petra having to witness this and know that there is nothing that can be done. It seems to me that the vast majority perish and only the lucky few are saved, heartbreaking. These hunters do not care one bit, these dogs are just thrown away like rubbish. I am so sorry for that brindle boy and all the others that can't be saved. I too feel guilty because I can't adopt at the moment and I do donate but am fully aware that it is a drop in the ocean and wish it could be more. Thank you to Baasgalgo for saving the dogs and I made a donation on Monday to them.


while I was visiting Fermin years ago, we took 3 galgos with us, the same day hunters and gypsies brought their abused and total neglected dogs to Fermin. I asked one of the hunters how old this galgo was as he looked to me 12years and older, he ignored my question instead he offered me his puppies he left behind. Never forget his cold unemtional eyes, his shoes were trenched with blood this sight I will never forget and I left him not without a clear sign of my nonverbal gesture what I think of him. At the shelter they told me to hold back as these creatures would than no longer deliver their dogs to the shelter. It is very frustrating to hold back emtions for the sake of the dogs future. Today one of this galgo still lives a happy life, cared for and a shinny coat. This galgo was only 2 years old when he was delivered to Fermin. When these dogs were left behind of these monsters, they begun to cry in dispair, it is hard to understand for us humans how loyal even in this misery these noble dogs attached to their masters.


thats why i cant visit kathrina my heart is broken enough in what i already know it really does hurt with a passion i have been drawn in the sight hound world and cant get out never will will carry the torment and sorrow and pain to my grave for these gentle souls they dont deserve what they go through i think every day what poor souls are getting sacrificed today abandoned physically abused murdered the list is endless it torments me every day every night befor i go to sleep the dogs are in my thoughts always just wont leave me
